First, replace the battery as you were advised in the previous solution. The when you boot up the computer go into the bios and reset the time there. To go into the bios you will press either the delete key when it boots or the F2 key. You may even see a prompt when you boot up as to which button to press. Then be sure to save the changes on exit. Sorry I can't help with the drivers issue. Not enough info to work with.

Good Luck!

If your battery is going bad, that onmost computers can be replaced by anyone. Open the computer (un plug the power) and you will see on the mother board the battery. It is about the size of a quarter and about that thickness also. There are usually some kind of small tabs that hold the battery in place. Get the number and go to almost any store and buy one, usually less the $ 5.00. Pry out the old one and install the new. Plug in and set the time, see if the machine keeps the time.

As for the devices, What are they? If you are running XP or vista, Get on line and downlaod the drivers if you can and store them on the desktop. Go into control panel, System, Device manager and remove. Turn computer off and then on with the divices plugged in. Windows should find those devices and install the correct drivers if they are plug and play. If they don't install go in to control panel and add new hardware, find the device and try to install.. God luck

How do you fix a corrupted bios?


I don't think it's corrupt bios, maybe a virus or malware.
But if you can go to the computers maker website and download bios and install them the way they tell you to install them.

Bios was flashed will not post to bios. Will new cmos battery reset bios?


hi no this board is now u/s any problems flashing a bios will make the board unusable, due to the fact is, it requires the bios for start up if that is corrupt you have no choice but to get another board, changing the battery will only put the bios back to default if it was ok, it will not do it if it is corrupt, sorry but thats the way it is

Emachines notebook m5310 corrupted bios recovery


Solution 1: Boot-block BIOS
Modern motherboards have a boot-block BIOS. This is small area of the BIOS that doesn't get overwritten when you flash a BIOS. The boot-block BIOS only has support for the floppy drive. If you have a PCI video card you won't see anything on the screen because the boot-block BIOS only supports an ISA videocard.
Award: The boot-block BIOS will execute an AUTOEXEC.BAT file on a bootable diskette. Copy an Award flasher & the correct BIOS *.bin file on the floppy and execute it automaticly by putting awdflash *.bin in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
AMI: The AMI boot-block BIOS will look for a AMIBOOT.ROM file on a diskette. Copy and rename the correct BIOS file on the floppy and power up the PC. The floppy doesn't need to be bootable. You will see the PC read the floppy, after about 4 minutes you will hear 4 beeps, this means the transfer is done. Reboot the PC and modify the CMOS for your configuration.
Solution 2: Get a new BIOS chip
Contact your motherboard manufacturer to see if they sell BIOS chips. Some motherboard manufacturers send them for free.
Contact a company that sells pre-flashed chips, like Unicore Software, FlashBIOS.ORG, BadFlash or BiosWorld
Solution 3: Hot-swapping
Note: I'm not responsible for any damage this method may do to you or your computer !
Replace the corrupt chip by a working one. The best option is to take the working BIOS chip from a motherboard which has the same chipset although that's not absolutely necessary. It just has to give you a chance of booting into DOS. Before pulling the working BIOS chip out of it's original motherboard, set the System BIOS cacheable option in the BIOS to enabled.
After you have put the working BIOS in the motherboard with the corrupt BIOS boot the system to DOS (with a floppy or HD).
Now replace (while the computer is powered on) the working BIOS chip with the corrupt one.
Flash an appropriate BIOS to the corrupt BIOS and reboot.
Note: Use a flasher from MRBIOS. They are known to work best. You can find them at ftp://ftp.mrbios.com
Solution 4: (for Intel motherboards)
Change Flash Recovery jumper to the recovery mode position (not all products have this feature)
Install the bootable upgrade diskette into drive A:
Reboot the system
Because of the small amount of code available in the non-erasable boot block area, no video is available to direct the procedure. The procedure can be monitored by listening to the speaker and looking at the floppy drive LED. When the system beeps and the floppy drive LED is lit, the system is copying the recovery code into the FLASH device. As soon as the drive LED goes off, the recovery is complete.
Turn the system off
Change the Flash Recovery jumper back to the default position
Leave the upgrade floppy in drive A: and turn the system on
Continue with the original upgrade

ASUS P4S333 Bios is maybe corrupted


Asus motherboards are junk, if you buy another in the future, stay clear of Asus products.

With that said, you should check your system for malware and viruses first, before doing anything else

Computer will not boot after bios update


you updated the bios?

Its possible that your bios update failed and the bios is now corrupt.

try to rest the bios by th bios jumper, consult your manual or just remove the power and the battery for a hour and try again.

If the bios is corrupt it would need to be removed from the motherboard and reprogrammed.
