I am afraid to inform you that your Notebook needs to be replaced.

As BIOS is the basic software (firmware) which will be interacting with all the Hardware in the Notebook, it may not be possible to do anything if it is erased from the BIOS ROM Chip.

However, there are few service centers around who will be able to Flash the BIOS so that you will be able to use it.

Actually, we are not supposed to even touch the Notebook when the BIOS is being flashed in Notebook like yours.

However, in latest HP Notebooks, the BIOS is being provided as Winflash which can be flashed within the Operating System by double clicking it.

Hope this helps...

Can I resurrect an Acer after the BIOS update was interrupted?


I would first try resetting using software, here are two software apps to reset or retrieve BIOS passwords.

You will need to create a bootable USB pen drive to run these apps.

I updated my bios , during that the sys froze up and i had to reset the laptop. after reset it shows only blank screen and it wont boot.


on rare occasion, you can download a bios upgrade bootable image.

This can be made into a disc or floppy, and run on boot.

Once the disc or floppy is run, it will begin the process of re-installing the bios.

As of right now, you have a partially upgraded bios, which means you really have no bios.

Your computer will not run because your motherboard is having a major identity crisis.

unfortunately this is not an easy fix, and may require the assistance of the laptop manufacturer.

Model Asus Eee 900A I tried to update bios and all of a sudden everything went off now no power at all, buttery is in good condition power charger is in good condition tried them on an other Eee and found...


I'm sorry but looks like the BIOS maybe damaged - you'll have to get the BIOS fixed or replaced (on the motherboard) unless it has a socket. If anything happened during the upgrade process like a power interruption, it could cause the problem. The BIOS upgrade process does an erase/write flash of firmware to its' memory. If disrupted, the firmware codes become corrupted.

Toshiba satellite becomes unresponsive after bios


Hi,

First of all try this. Turn the laptop off and remove the battery. hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Plug just the AC mains power jack in and turn the laptop on.
If it boots all is well, turn the machine off, put in the battery.

Just out of interest can you remember who manufactured the BIOS? was it Phoenix or AMI?


Good luck.

Laptop froze when trying to download Bios


The bios is a very touchy thing, if you screw them up you will have a door stop. Reboot the computer and start the bios update again. This time download and save the bios update to the hard drive and then run it from there. You should never run any type of bios program from the internet, you should ALWAYS save or burn to disc, then run. The internet is entirely to unstable for such an important update, if there's a glitch or loss of connection, even only for a millisecond, it can ruin your machine. If you cannot reboot and finish the update, get back to me and i'll see if I can get you through this.

No drive detected


hey koko

can you try to restart your laptop and try to go into BIOS..

press delete when your laptop is starting up.

when your already in BIOS, look for the booting sequence. you must determine that your harddrive is recognized at this point and make it a primary boot.

post back for any more questions ok.
