    Can u please send me the HDD wipe program? I have changed the CMOS battery and still the MB isnt working. Ive tried resetting the BIOS from the Jumper. The BIOS did got reset to the factory settings but i still cant load windows. I also rolled back the BIOS to the 33 Version. The rollback was a success but the problem with loading windows still exist. Btw i have tried installing with another harddrive as well. Still not working. have also changed the Sata cables. same issue... I think INTEL has screwd up Big time on this MB.

Ok, you've got your work cut out for you here. Several ways to approach this problem.
1st. Reset the existing bios, simply remove all power from the system then simply remove the bios battery located on the physical mother board. Be careful not to touch any connectors or circuits as you can easily "fry" the mother board with static discharge. Once battery is out wait about 30 seconds then replace the battery ( watch the polarity and make sure to put it back in the way it came out and dont bend/break the contacts), and this should put the motherboard back to its factory settings. There is a bios reset built into the mother board and unless you know where it is and how to use it you'd be safer just to remove the battery.
2nd. Completely erase the hard drive using a military grade eraser program (similar to DiscWasher brand). Don't waste your time using the format that comes with Windows to do this the 1st time as it does not clear files in the parameters (hidden part of Hard Drive). A military grade eraser will take some time to run like maybe 1 to 2 days pending on how large your drive/s are. You could opt for a quick wipe of drive using 1's and 0's which would only take about 2 hrs pending on drive size. Windows will format the drive which it must do, so let it run its course as Windows will see the drive as being new and will reset the parameters as new at this time. If this works then there you go Windows should install now. (don't have a HDD wipe program? I can send you a copy of mine if you need it) You will need a cd burner and blank cd to make a copy of the program. I can send you to get the program and you will need to make a disc to run it from as it will not run from a flash drive or floppy
If still not installing:
Check/replace your bios battery (about $3.00) these batteries are only good for about 3 years but can die after a few weeks, some batteries have lasted 10+ years pending many variables. I believe the batery should read 1.5 volts dc on a volt meter but no less than 0.9 volts dc.
If battery was not problem and you still can't install Windows 7, well now this is gonna be aggravating as heck...
You will need to roll back your bios as this mother board was not designed to run anything over XP sp2 but works at its best with Windows 2000 pro.
This is very time consuming so if you need the info on rolling back the bios let me know and I'll post it. Let us know how it goes and Good Luck!

Why will my computer not start anymore?


Hard to diagnose without the machine in front of me. You say you updated this computer with the latest updates...was there by chance a Bios update in the mix? This behavior can be sparked by a failed bios update/successful update with a bad file/turned off mid update.

If there is more than one memory module, try removing them one at a time and testing that way...that will help eliminate ram as a suspect.

My expectation is that your motherboard is shot...either by a failed BIOS update or just unlucky timing of it happening following whatever updates were ran. Once you've eliminated power supply and RAM, its the most likely culprit. Unless you were heavily over clocking CPU's don't generally fail that catastrophically. Hope that helps and Good luck!

When typing for email, the cursor turns into a wheel and freezes screen often


Try to update the Flash Player first.... and then try the process again. If updating the flash doesn't help, update the browser itself to the most recent one.

In my opinion, latest google chrome will be helpful to you, just because, it contains the flash player inside it (you don't have to install it separately) and will update itself whenever an update of the flash player is available, so that you don't have to worry about the browser and flash player.

You can download the latest version of flash here: get.adobe.com/flashplayer

You can have the latest google chrome here: www.google.com/chrome

If none of the solutions helps you, report it by commenting over this reply.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay

I want latest BIOS drivers for INTEL DH55TC desktop board. I've gone to http://downloadcenter.intel.com but the latest BIOS drivers available in INTEL site is TCIBX10H.86A.0048.EB.EXE & Date:1


Those are the latest drivers you can get. Bios updates aren't created on any regular schedule or anything, and eventually they stop updating them altogether when the board is past its manufactured life cycle. They may make another update in the future, but then again they may not.

If you are having an issue with the motherboard that's not been addressed/fixed by the last update, then the only thing you can really do is email Intel and tell them about it. If they get enough complaints about what your issue is, then the probability they will fix your issue and make a newer Bios update will go up. Luckily Intel has more resources/programmers than most other companies in the business and thus your chance of getting a Bios update is better than average.

I recently bought a brand new Wildcat Realizm 200 and I would like to flash the GPU BIOS to the latest version. How should I go about doing that?


the GPU doesn't have a BIOS. BIOS stands for Basic Input / Output System. It's what your computer hardware looks at right after the POST. (Power-On Self-Test). Flashing the BIOS can be risky, if there is a power outage while it's updating or doesn't completely update your motherboard will be useless. I highly do not recommend flashing the BIOS. What I would do is update the driver. Keep in mind that only certain graphics cards work on certain machines. Intel CPUs only work with Nvidia GPUs. and AMD CPUs only work with AMD cards. It's hard to pinpoint your problem because I'm not looking at the computer.

I have a HP Z400 with windows xp sp3 installed. Recently the computer has been randomly turning itself off twice a day with no error messages. The computer can be turned back on right away and nothing...


I would update the drivers, check with the chip set manufacturer for updated firmware and run diagnostics on the RAM and hard drive.
That should cover most angles.

Is there a good reason to flash your BIOS? You have a good chance of ruining your computer ... is it worth the risk?

If there is a update ... of course it is possible. Acer has a good section on this process.
