    Thanks,but nope.It stays there! I pressed esc,tab & delete.It didn't evenflicker. HELP!!!!

  • Terry Jun 14, 2008

    Thanks.I do have a usb desk h/drive.I've gone into BIOS,but to be honest I'm not sure what to do.

    In advanced settings(the 2nd.option) it starts the dvd rwriter first,and I don't know how to change these things.Can you help please?

  • Terry Jun 16, 2008

    Thanks Bubbabear,your advice has got rid of the hanging logo.I do have a desk top external drive and switching it off then going into BIOS did the trick.

    Everything works well now although a page comes up at the bootup in black & white giving details of what's in my computer,memory etc.

    I can cope with that 5 or 10 second lag.

    I will keep this page in my favourites for future reference.

    Again Thank you,



    TERRY

    You should be able to press ESC during this and it will show you what it is doing. Either it is checking the memory or you have a device that it's trying to recognize but cannot. Press ESC next time and see what it is doing and post back. Thanks.

There is a way to speed it up by adjusting the diagnostics test. You have to go into the BIOS to adjust it.

    Do you have any hard drives plugged into the USB port?



    You might want to go into the BIOS settings and check the boot order. Make sure its going to the right device first.

    To get into the BIOS settings you need to turn the computer off and turn the computer on.



    You can either press f1 or delete to get you into the mode. It should tell you on the screen.



    Once you get in there take a look at the section entitled boot.



    Usually you can change the priority by selecting either the up and keys or the plus and minus keys.

I have hp dv9700, after improper shutdown kept rebooting


What happened is that you interrupted the disk write on 'saving settings'. Very BAD. You may be able to start in safe mode, by pressing F8 while windows is starting, then selecting options to attempt to repair. The alternative, is to boot from the windows CD and select 'repair'.

How can I change the motherboard boot logo


Hello,

The EPA logo and the Fullscreen logo all are stored in the bios. That is the update 
you download from the manufacturer's website contains both the logos in it. So if you mod the bios update and then apply the patch the next time when you boot your computer you will see the new logo.

***BEWARE A BAD FLASH CAN RENDER YOUR MOTHERBOARD USELESS****

Software Used

Winflash 1.51 ftp://ftp.ecs.com.tw/driver/bios/flash/winflash151.exe
Award Bios Editor 1.0 http://sourceforge.net/projects/awdbedit/
CBROM 2.15 http://www.biosmods.com/download/award/cbrom215.zip



The mods are in two sections.  If you only want one or the other, just skip to that section.

FULLSCREEN LOGO

1. Make Sure the motherboard uses the Award Bios.

2. Either Download the new Bios from the Manufacturer website or get it from the system Bios directly by backing it up.  For backing up and updating bios, I use WinFlash 1.51 (there might be a newer version, I just stick with what works!).

3. Now we have the bios file on disk. Now make a new bitmap image with any of your favorite imaging software. Make sure that the final bitmap image you have created is 640*480 and 256 colors.

4. Now use the CBROM Utility to change the boot logo in the bios file.
This is done by using Command Prompt

c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /logo logo.bmp

5. Now to check whether the bios file was updated correctly. Run the Award bios editor. (make sure the dlls in the plugin directory are moved to the folder with awbedit.exe)

6. Load the bios.bin in the Award bios editor and check in the left hand list for Fullscreen Logo and that it does show your logo.  If okay your bios is now ready to be flashed.

7. Now use Winflash utility, load the bios.bin and click on update .

8. Reboot the computer and the bios logo is changed.


EPA Logo:

Procedure for the EPA logo is just same except the few things.

Image size is : 138*84 16 Colors and 72 pixels/inch

Command for adding to bios file is : c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /epa epalogo.bmp

When you check for the EPA logo in the Award Bios Editor, the colors will not be same as those that you choose but when you flash the bios and reboot, it will show the original colors.


*****PRECAUTIONS*****

Never try to flash bios without a uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
Close all the programs before flashing from Windows.
ALWAYS wait for flash program to notify you for reboot, DO NOT EVER EVER reboot when you think it is ready or taking too long.  Mucking up the flash CAN MAKE YOUR MOTHERBOARD GARBAGE!!!  You have been warned!!

I hope that this helps,
Ken

Reboots at different times, some times windows logo is grayed out and hangs


its is possible that you have some bad memory search & download a program called memcheck 1.70 or later, and either put it on a formated floppy or burn onto a cd ,make sure that the boot sequence in the bios is set to go to that drive first
the pc will boot into this program and will keep running untill you stop it,if their are any errors it will show up ,you will need to establish what memory chip it is, if you have more than one chip.

it could also be a power supply, supplying iregular voltage.

also xp requires at LEAST 256 mbs to run badly, more is better.so if you are using less than 256 mbs it will be the problem.

good luch

X7DAE at the time of boot stuck on logo


the broblem is probably your keyboard, since del doesn't work then this indicates that your keyboard could have some wires cut from inside the wire casing due to various reasons or the keyboard plug isn't well attached to the wires or have some bent pins.

my advice : go buy a new keyboard.

Start up problem


it is struggling to find the boot.ini, you can try pressing F8 when it's booting up and then you should get into safe mode, when in select last known good configuration and then press enter for a reboot.

 

If you still cannot get into windows you will need to perform a system repair, borrow a friends XP disc, but use the key code normally on the underneath of notebooks of your own system if you have one, then set your cdrom as first boot device in the bios (F2 or Del on boot up) and then insert the disc, then press enter to boot from cdrom and press R for repair when prompted.
