Hi,
Go to the following link, download the BIOS file and save it on the desktop.If you are running windows vista. Right click on the file and left click on Run as adminstartor. Follow on screen instructions and the BIOS would be updated. You would not require any external media for the job.

Points to remmber :
1. Disconnect all external devices from the laptop
2. Both AC adpater(power cord) and battery should be in the system
3. The system would automatically shutdown and restart the system. Donnot press button during this stage.

On personal note , i would suggest to redo your windows and all problems would be resolved.

Thanks
Mandeep

I want bios update my IBM Lenovo 7298 pc


Hi
If you go to the page below there are many options for installing a BIOS update.
Desktops and all in ones ThinkCentre Series desktops ThinkCentre M58e...

There are also various utilities to help you upgrade the BIOS, including one for upgrading from within Windows. You should make sure that you have a full backup of your data and programmes before you start. Please make sure that the version here is an upgrade compared with your current version and that you read the instructions very carefully and are comfortable with them as incorrectly upgrading, or interrupting the upgrade can lead to your machine refusing to boot at all from anything. Please be careful.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

I have a corrupted windows vista system and I bought a windows 7 install cd, but need to learn how to properly install it. I have a HP pavillion Elite m9350f PC.


Go into your bios settings set the cd rom as first boot device save and exit. Computer will reboot place the new windows disk into your cd player if you are on time it will catch the new disk and tell you that thee is a bootable disk in th cd rom, do you wish to boot this disk. If you miss it just place the cd into the disk player and reboot the system again. Once you have selected yes for the cd rom follow the prompts on the cd and you will be on your way to even more frustration with windows. Hope this helps.

Can not boot dell 6650 from external dvd


Have you checked boot device options....from BIOS
Use F9 during boot to goto ROM-BIOS and change Boot device option to CDROM/DVDROM.
Insert Boot media or DVD-Win2003, to DVD-ROM device..
reboot Server, try now
If still issue.. Check to boot Server using some other media..
if other cd media works, then it could be DVD-Win2003 faulty, otherwise download firmware for CD/DVDROM and upgrade it and check if DVDROM works, otherwise you have to contact Dell Support..

BIOS 1004 cpu not support


I got it :-)

Damn Asus , it was a hard session ;-)

1. Make an ISO from your original Asus CD denn insert (with isobuster or something) the Bios Firmware 1004 in the main Dir name the file M2N-MX.ROM

2.Burn a Second disc with the 0804 Bios ROM also rename the 0804 Rom to M2N-MX.ROM

3. Go to EZ FLASH with ALT + F2 and then insert the 1004 CD wait till Erasing is ready Then Turn OFF your PC :-) so you crashed the bios thats what you need to run the embeded CrashFRee Tool

4 After you turn your PC on insert the 0804 CD then it flashes the this Rom and we are Happy :-)

mfg Eddi Hope this helps someone
