Find and fix errors in your system BIOS
BIOS Patcher can find and fix errors in your system BIOS (only AWARD BIOS for now) and also it can add or open new features, i.e. some features that your BIOS has but they are closed by manufacturer of your motherboard. It scans rom file. If it finds any known errors it fixes the errors. If it finds any closed features it opens it. hope this helps

    During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
    Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
    or
    During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
    hope this helps

I have hp pavillion DV6-6c35dx black screen with caps lock blinking twice to indicate corrupted bios. How do I flash the bios on this laptop?


If that computer wont boot to a screen that you can recognize, it is a brick. When the bios is corrupted and it wont allow the machine to start you cannot access any screens that will allow you to recover. It takes special equipment to flash the BIOS when this happens and most places just replace the whole motherboard because this equipment is not used often by repair shops.

Boot Problem


I hope your laptop still can boot up from the DVD drive, so you can make a bootable DVD media with the BIOS flash (using other computer) to replace the current corrupted BIOS.

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source

Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable CD-ROM. First verify that no CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a CD.

System registry problem says its missing a fill from there and it wont reboot my windows vista ultimate disc but the sony vaio laptop comes with windows premium..


If your laptop isn't booting from your Windows Disc, it is not because of corrupt registry. It is because the BIOS settings.

1. Restart your laptop.
2. The screen where the logo of manufacturer is displayed press and hold F10.
In most BIOS it would lead you to the BIOS setup screen.
3. Find anything which sounds similar to Boot Order. (Different BIOS use different names).
4. Select the Optical Media Drive to be the first one to be checked for bootable media.
5. Save the settings and restart.

For very detailed instructions, follow this link.

Corrupt & Locked Bios


When you flash the bios (normally from a floppy drive) it should overwrite anything that is there.
In this case you must boot from the floppy. Unfortunately, with a laptop you don't have that option.
I suggest you put the bios flashing utility that you probably downloaded with your bios update file on a flash drive. I think your laptop has the ability to boot from that.
Anyway, on startup, press F12 until you get the boot options and try that.
I take it that you know the support site URL, but just in case, it's support.dell.com

You might have multiple problems. Are you sure the CD-Rom works? It is not uncommon for CD-ROM drives to go bad in laptops. If it was bad before and then the hard drive became corrupt all before it was given to you then you would have no way of knowing. This would explain why you do not get the Press Any Key to Boot From CD on boot.

There is no doubt that the hard drive image is corrupt, so the first thing I would check is the CD drive and go from there.
