Bios damaged


You are fortunate that your BIOS has a built-in recovery procedure. However, you will need a working floppy drive to recover the damaged BIOS.

Do you know what BIOS microcode you're using? Specifically, do you have an Award, AMI, or Phoenix BIOS? (Or some other one?)

Award, AMI, and Phoenix all have different procedures for recovering the BIOS. Once you know which one you have, search Google for "XXXX BIOS recovery" (Where XXXX is Award, AMI, or Phoenix).

Typically, the procedure includes placing a BIOS file onto a floppy, renaming it to a specific name (like AMIBOOT.ROM) and inserting that floppy into the drive.

I need a bios upgrade. I have a PT800DBP Motherboard Motherboard: CPU Type Intel Pentium 4A, 2833 MHz (7 x 405) Motherboard Name Unknown Motherboard Chipset VIA VT8763 Apollo PT800 System Memory 512 MB...


boot the pc from cold, note the long identifier number - it contains a 2 character identifier for the board manufacturer. For more info go to the Award bios website, it has a better explanation of this. From there you will be able to either download new BIOS from there, or the website of the vendor/manufacturer.

Updating BIOS


Dear Sir/Mam
This is the Paddy_solver and since you are not able to find the bios upgrade i am giving you a link from where you can download your bios update however before you would do it lemme tell you it can crash your motherboard as well i would say if your computer is working fine you better not do it if your computer administrator has said so please go for it.
Link to download :-
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/utilities.html#BIOS
when the website would open you have to look in the middle of the page where it says "BIOS UPDATE TOOLS"
NOW BEFORE YOU WOULD INSTALL OR DOWNLOAD ANYTHING PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU SHOULD KNOW THE BIOS INSTALLED ON YOUR LAPTOP FOR THAT YOU HAVE TO ENTER THE BIOS EITHER BY PRESSING "DELETE KEY" OR "F2 KEY " ONCE YOU RESTART THE LAPTOP TRY IT BOTH THE KEYS ONE BY ONE IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO GET TO THE BIOS.
AND ONCE YOU WOULD SEE THE BIOS IT WOULD EITHER SAY "AWARD BIOS" OR "PHOENIX BIOS" ONCE YOU KNOW WHICH BIOS YOU HAVE THEN DOWNLOAD THE FILE ACCORDINGLY.

HOPE THIS INFORMATION IS USEFUL FOR YOU IF ANY FURTHER QUREY YOU CAN CONTACT ME AT MY EMAIL IE:-
sumitfor_u@yahoo.com

Thanks and Regads
