Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi, What I would best sugget you if you this kind of issue is to restore your system to its original settings, just look for the small button just beside the power button on your keyboard, it has an arching arrow logo, that key is what we called One Key Recovery that would restore your system to its original factory settings. but just a hint it would also delete everything on your computer so consider bucking up every important files taht you have before proceeding with the recovery. also make sure that the ac adapter is plugin before you press the one key recovery button then it will give the options to choose from, just choose one key recovey then proceed with the factory default recovery, thats it it would now proceed with the system factory default restoration. If you still need some clarifications regarding this issue you could also call the tech support hotline of lenovo

SOURCE: Hi... I have a HP ProBook
Could you please let me know what operating system is installed on your system? If I am right, it's not mentioned here. Even if you install/upgrade the bios from cd-rom or usb drive or floppy disk, there are different Update file for different O.S. If you are sure about the Bios update file, then try booting with a CD or using a usb drive.
I too hope that you followed the procedure : download > double-click > make bootable disk > restart > continue with the update and you should not interrupt the process in any way (never should be). But first, before you double-click (make the bootable disk), set the first boot option to floppy disk or cd-rom or usb.
If you can and if you doubt about the bios version compatibility, please send me the link from where you download the Bios Update file. Let me take a look and confirm it to you.
You have to understand that Updating Bios is risky, it's not so simple as most people think and only the instructions (without a tech) is not recommended, no one can guarantee that the bios flashing will be successful and it's vulnerable, sometimes it'll never return once it's flashed improperly or if the process is incomplete. I recommend you to get it done from a HP Center or call a tech to inspect the machine personally and perform the task. I don't mean you are not and you cannot, but if you are sure what exactly you are doing, you'll end up wasting time and money.
If you need further help, let me know.
Thanks for using FixYa.

The battery might be nearing the end of it's useful life and needs to be replaced. The battery only lasts for so long then it has to be replaced.
Buy a battery on ebay base on your computer's Make and model, not the model of the battery.

This is a setting in you BIOS. Try changing to AUTO under the SATA drive settings by pressing F key during boot. It will be noted on screen during startup.
I would stay away from a OS upgrade till your are certain all hardware and software is compatible. It is a lot of work if it does not work properly.
