    Hi
    Thanks for asking.
    Yes, unable to pass the bios.
    I was able to recover the bios with the jumper on the board but not the BMC firmware. This is the problem.
    This is a 7973-AC1 SN: KQANV27 IBM computer. No floppy in the box.
    Thanks again.

    When you say unable to boot do you mean unable to get passed the BIOS stuff? What motherboard is it? Do you have a floppy disk drive in the box? Can you find the flash recovery jumper on the motherboard?

If you have jumpered for BIOS recover it should be able to boot from floppy. I think you will have to install a floppy drive, boot from floppy. Jump the MB for BMC update (if ness) and flash the BIOS and BMC that way.

Factory reset


Chapter15 The Init Button
The Init button is used for maintenance: Simultaneously press Init button and turn on (by plugging
in the power adaptor) the Server until USB1 LED indicator simultaneously blinks. After that, the
Server will do the following tasks:
A. Perform a Factory Default of the MFP server, which will restore most of the parameters and
settings to factory default values,
B. Perform a TFTP server. You can upgrade new firmware using any TFTP client tool.
Note: After performing the tasks mentioned above, you have to unplug the power adaptor and then
plug in the power adaptor to restart the Server.

Lg 670 stuck


I had the same problem with my LG bd670 blu ray. I fixed it. It was a failed firmware update. I went to the LG website and downloaded the update and copied it onto a flash drive. I unplugged my blu ray (hdmi cable too), put the flash drive into the usb port on front, and plugged in the power cord. It took a couple of minutes but it loaded the update from the flash drive and shut off. I plugged the in hdmi cable and turned on the blu ray and done. All was well in the world again. I hope this helps anyone with the "boot" error message on the LG bd670 blu ray player.

Seems to have lost the existing firmware and will


you need to interupt the boot process, by using a console cable and interupt boot. Then do a serial download of a new image.

Cant upgrade psp


Here's what you can do:

1. Connect your PSP to your PC.
2. Check if the proper folders are on it's Memory Stick. There is
a folder called PSP which had the following folders
underneath.


GAME
PICTURE
VIDEO
SYSTEM

3. The folder you need is GAME. Go in there and create a subfolder called UPDATE.

4. Go to www.playstation.com

5. Look for your local site.

6. Look in the PSP section for firmware updates. Here's the link for the most recent firmware update for the USA.
[PSP Firmware 3.80]

* If you need other regional firmware you'll need to look for it yourself or tell me where you from.

7. Download the file in the above link to a convenient place such as your desktop. Then copy it to the recently created UPDATE folder.

8. Safely disconnect your PSP.

9. Start up your PSP and go to the Game section of it, select Memory Stick. You should now see the file.

10. Open the file by pressing X. The update procedure starts. Be sure to follow the on screen instructions.

If you want to read these steps over again, click this link:
[Updating PSP via PC]

Warning: do not use firmware other then placed on Sony PlayStation's official site. For it might damage your system and it will never boot again. Also make sure the battery is fully charged (a charge of 50% will not do, the update utilty won't allow the update). Since it can take an few minutes you best connect it to it's power supply.

NEVER interupt an update by shutting your unit down, removing battery, removing stick, removing power. The damage done is not covered by Sony's warranty.

About the issue for the connection with your PS3 unit. It's true, you need one of the most recent firmwares.

I hope this helped you out, please rate my solution.

Greetings,
