this is a English forum here ill do google translate
my Spanish is horrible, got the necessary, word 1st.
iLL ANSWER IN CAPS , BOLD.
I need the programs to flash the bios of my compaq deskpro ENU x86, the problem is that the machine is a PIII and I have installed the WINDOWS XP SP3,2009: and sometimes does not recognize very well the devices installed in my system. (what devices, wow)
THIS IS NORMAL FOR OLD PC. IT'S NOT
BIOS. LEAVE BIOS
ALONE please, FOR SURE ! WHAT DEVICES? YOU NEVER SAID.
do not read forums that lie and tell you BIOS fixes everything.
That is why I want to flash (BIOS), and also because I would like to combine t
he typical and not so nice COMPAQ out of the system input menu. Thanks for your help. This last part can not be understood. COMBINE?
NOW MY ANSWER, CAPS LOCK OFF
No PC stated.
we cant help at all if you cant read the service tag
and post the full model number,
stop flashing BIOS, take that BIN file and park it in the attic.
most PC are killed by owners FLASHING BIOS, it's silly do to this.
completely wrong. (need the official HP page that says that, have it ask)
The PC ran great new with your BIOS,so....
tell me how BIOS magically got wrong" it did not. (for sure)"
unless last guy who owned it FLASHED it, sure.... endless home fixers flashing and killing good PCs ., endless needless PAIN
NO DEVICE bad stated not one time. so...
ok all the above is NOISE. due to....these facts...
Ok it's XP , and no pc stated
XP is a dead OS , 100% dead now for 3 long years. MS/HP both!
XP is a virus magnet,
XP fails to run all USB ports correctly and even fails DVD drives..
XP is wreck unless SP3 is installed . but still fails as ALL DO.
XP does not support new devices, (maybe nvidia cards ok)
if h3ll bent on using XP (why not upgrade to w7? why?)
then post what device fails , its full of device NAME ONE? please.
when a PC fails, write down things that do not work.
then tell the helper XYZ fails. and ask for help
tell OS running, XP sp3,
tell PC model next fully , like CQ50-12345u
see that is a fake , model i did but is COMPAQ like....CQ is one era made.
not upgrading you PC is a very bad idea. W7 is supported still
now the plug and play is dead in XP, oops. that means DEVICES fail. both old and new, can fail now. due to PnP is now DEAD.
PnP means plug and play.
a better idea?
why not go to (USA) Goodwill
store. walk in and buy a W7 PC
look on case see COA sticker with words, W7
buy it and be happy.... we can help 10x better here too....
due to W7 is not DEAD.
some as cheap at $20 whole bucks too.
last, here is the COMPAQ line up. which one?
google translate that back to EN
