Hi - No probs.

The 'board bios' can be thought of as the mini brain that the computer uses before the operating system (eg Xp or linux) is loaded. It is built into the main 'motherboard' of your computer as one of the chips. To get access to it you usually are given an option to press 'F2' when you first turn on your computer. Once you get past this stage you may have to hunt around a bit to find your USB settings. Although system bios screens are varied beween computers they follow a similar basic structure. You may find what you're after in the 'advanced' tab. Just make sure you remember what you change so if it doesn't work you can go back later and reset.

***HEALTH WARNING*** Changing your system bios may prevent your system from functioning correctly - all the more reason to remember what you change and put everything back as it was when you started if you have any problems.

Hope this helps.

Wont turn on beeping

The beep is from the Motherboards BIOS which will give a clue as to what the problem is, if you have the Motherboard manual check the BIOS codes for clues.

It may be worth checking the components on the board have not become loose like Graphic card, memory etc.

You could also remove the ram and test to see if you get one beep, if you do put them back one at a time, if it loads with one shut it down and swop for another and retry, if that fails you know that chip has failed.

HY, i have MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL CO., LTD MS-6570 (Socket A) on my pc and i read the manual but i still don`t have a clue what video card this board supports, if someone knows please help me !

The manual should state if the board has available PCI or PCIe (or IDE or EIDE if it's older) slots. There also should be a mention in the BIOS section for enabling or disabling the on-board video.

Reg 845glly motherboard audio problems

restart, Press F2 for your bios setup screen.
Perhaps maybe the "integrated audio controller" option or similar is not enabled in the bios.
I know there's an option to enable/disable it ( on-board audio.)

Check to see if that's an issue or make sure this option is enabled in the bios. Then give a shout back.

So you've tried this driver already?
Try installer that and restarting your computer.
I hope this helps.

You need to have a bootable disk that has the bios for that specific motherboard on it and you need to flash it. Why dont you go to the HP website and look up the model number, it will tell you specific hardware in your system and also you can download the bios, bios updating software and you should alos find information on how to properly update the bios. Never ever restart your computer during bios update, it will f23ck it up.

Your problem lies deep inside the CMOS. All chips associated with the CMOS will likely have to be replaced. Your best bet is to get a new motherboard.
