On power on, there are two beeps. Then, almost immediately, "Scanning BIOS Image in Hard Drive" is displayed. That's as far as she goes. Is there any way to recover from this short of a new chio - I don't think this m'bd has a removable one. Any help will be appreciated. lou

Bios update failed! Now i get 8 beeps and no display.. any solutions?

8 beeps is when the PC fails to write to its display memory. But the only change you have made is to update the bios, so I think the bios does not match the graphics card in the PC. Have you changed the graphics card or touched it inside the case? Check its fitted correctly.
I hope you backed up the old bios. If you did restore it. You may have installed a bios that is incompatible with that PC hardware, check its the correct one.

I would say you have a failed memory (RAM) module. Probably a module in one of the secondary slots since the computer is able to POST and will attempt to boot.

I'm not quite sure what it is you exactly want here but if you need to get into the BIOS utility then as the computer is starting up repeatedly tap the Del key or the Esc key.

My computer when i boot a message appered scanning bios image in hard drive..... bios auto-recovering and the computer restart... how to repair this error??

The bios is stored in the CMOS chip on motherboard not on the hard driver, the error message probably means it it scanning to find a hard drive to boot to. You should go into your BIOS and reset to factory defaults and see if this makes a diffrence. you may also have a failed hard drive which may need to be replaced.
