BIOS won't accept changes....?

Q: BIOS won't accept changes....?

I have an ABIT KX7333 board with AWARD Bios/softmenu 3. I am using corsair pc2700 ddr ram and an Athlon xp 1800+. Everytime I go into my BIOS and change anything, namely the memory CAS from 2.5 to 2, or anything with the memory for that matter, it won't boot. I know the memory can run at that rate but it jsut isn't working. Also, I am using an Nvidia GeForce 4 ti 4200 vid card, and I can't change the AGP settings for optimal use. The only thing I can use is the optimum performance defaults, which is not as optimal as I know it can be. I have the latest Bios update, what is the deal here? Any input would be greatly appreciated

Preferred Solution: BIOS won't accept changes....?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Possibly insufficient power, I've had the problem in the past while trying to run larger amounts of RAM at higher speeds. I had to go to a 400 watt PS.

I am trying to update the UEFI/BIOS on a Lenovo G50-45 type 80E3 from version 2.04 (file a2cn38ee) to v2.13 (file a2cn45ww.)  All goes as normal up to the re-boot.  After the Lenovo logo finally appears (see below) I get the error message "InsydeH2O - Secure Flash   Error : Invalid firmware image!!!  Please press any key to reset system......"  Pressing any key re-boots, and again after a longer than normal delay, the Lenovo logo re-appears and it boots back to Windows.  The BIOS is not updated. I have the right file - the same downloaded file works perfectly in other identical machines; I have a backup machine of the same model.  The checksum matches that posted on the downloads support page.  When run, the downloaded a2cn45ww file self-extracts to the file c:\BIOS\A2CN45WW\A2CN45WW.exe.  When that (an archive file) is run, it self-extracts to the folder c:\users\[username]\AppData\Local\Temp\7zS4B28.tmp.  In that folder is the ROM image (WIN213.bin, ~10MB) and whose checksum matches that of the same file on a machine which did update. Of significance:  Warm boots on this machine may take anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes before the Lenovo logo screen appears.  In either a normal cold boot or one-key recovery the logo appears after a second or two.  Something is hanging in the POST, I don't know what.  If I wait long enough, it eventually does start. Why I want to update the B...

Hi,

I ordered a 120GB hard drive, but they didn't have it in store right now, so they can offer me a 160GB instead. Can a drive like this still be used on an old system that has a bios with a hard drive limit of (I believe) 120GB? I know, I wouldn't be using 40GB in that case, but that's not a problem, I just want to know if I will be able to format it as a 120GB.

Thanks

I just try to install KOMPUTERBAY 1GB DDR DIMM (184 PIN) 400Mhz PC3200 DDR400 DESKTOP MEMORY on a EMachine T3120. With 2 sticks of mem, it started beeping and it would not boot. With one stick it will boot but after a few seconds it will go to the Blue Screen of Death.

When I replaced the 512mb ram original it all went back to normal. I thought I had the wrong RAM since it look different from the old (see attached picture) but I was told I might had to do something to the BIOS. Any ideas?

I have had the same problem as shared in the thread: "http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/787503-multibay-drives-compaq-evo-d51u.html". The thread has been closed, and so I am starting a new one on the subject.

I have partially resolved it by using a DVD-RW out of a Toshiba Laptop. DVD unit is a Panasonic model "UJ-830B", and it runs well, with the exception of:
The PC stalls on BIOS bootup time with an error saying that it has two master IDE drives and cant continue.
My solution is to start the PC with the bay removed.
Once the OS Bootup Menu is displayed, and before selecting an option, I insert the bay.
The system them boots up fine into either of my OS partitions (WinXP, Win7 or Linux), and all three systems work just fine with the unit.

Has anyone come across this? Any ideas?

Note: There are no jumper settings on Multi-bay, nothing at all, so definitely not an option to assign it to Master or Slave.
Note: If I slide in my CD-Rom Multi-bay, BIOS boot is normal.

Thank you for your time in reading my post.

Helpful answers very much welcomed.

A:Does SFF Compaq Evo D51U desktop PC's bios accept a DVD multibay to be installed?

Expanding description of the fault details, the actual error I get is something as:

Controller. No other IDE device may be attached to the same IDE controller.

Again, I am unaware of any settings on BIOS, or jumpers on MoBo, Multibay tray, or DVD drive that can be changed.

I recently changed ISPs and added a Netgear wireless router to the modem. I configured the modem and router useing my PC laptop, and generated a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption. I was able to successfully connect with my WEP Key on my PC and on my TiVo, but my Mac (which is a new MacBook) will not accept my WEP Key, saying there is an error in joining the network.

The dropdown menu in the AirPort window has four choices: (1) WEP Password, (2) WEP 40/128-bit hex, (3) WEP 40/128-bit ASCII and (4) LEAP. I'm assuming that since my WEP key is set to 64-bit encryption, that I should use the first option, which is what I have been trying.

I was able to connect my MacBook to my old wirelss signal, which I have not disconnected it (it's cable-based and runs from a different modem/router; my new ISP is DSL-based), and that signal also has a WEP Key with 64-bit encryption.

I also tried disabling the WEP key encryption for a time, and then I was able to secure a connection to the new signal, but I want to maintain the encryption. Please help.

A:Windows7 only accept 2 GB RAM

Hi,

Welcome to 7 forums

In this regard, i guess the problem is with the 2 GB RAM or the RAM slot. The issue is not with Windows 7.

► Lets say RAM 1 works, RAM 2 caused the issue.

* To find if the defect is with that RAM or the slot, remove the working RAM 1 and place the RAM 2 in that same slot.

* If your Windows works fine, then the problem may be with the other RAM slot. If the RAM 2 causes BSOD now, then the issue is with the RAM. You may have to replace that RAM 2.

* Additionally, you can try interchanging the RAM slots and boot up !.

Hope this helps

Ok, I've got a dual P3 700 at work that we really can't use in it's current state at work. It's a fiery tower that was meant to be a print server from EFI . They won't even support the hardware on their website. It's got a Tyan Thunderbolt mainboard in it. They used their proprietary BIOS when they built it so you couldn't change the OS. After finally figuring out what mainboard was in there I went to Tyan's website and downloaded their version of the BIOS and flashed it. Now when I try to install 2K, I can partition the drive with no problems but it keeps telling me that I need to choose a windows 2000 compatible partition to install it on. It doesn't give me the option to format the partition in the setup. I am able to go into the recovery console and use the format command to format the partition, but it keeps giving me the same error in the setup. The hard drive is a SCSI IBM running from the onboard SCSI ultra 2. I checked all the BIOS & SCSI BIOS settings and they seem to be correct. I tried downloading the latest SCSI drivers and loading them before the install, but that doesn't make a difference either. I've also tried different partition sizes with no luck. What I don't get is why can I partition the drive and format it (in recovery console), but can't install on it? Can anyone give me any ideas on what to do? Thanks

I still can not get this computer to accept cookies. I discovered that the internet options drop down was the same as version 6. This options menu still has a privacy tab included.

In the Internet Options (Security tab), I set both the

Then, in the Internet zone, I disallow cookies that are stored

Trusted Sites zone, I allow both. Whenever I run into a site
which needs to store a cookie (like eBay, Amazon, cable TV

the end of the day, I have on the drive those cookies which I
need to keep, and all others are history.
To make this even easier, I use a small application called
Trust Setter, which puts two buttons in the IE toolbar, Add to

My mobo will accept up to PC100 and i have 128 mb of pc100 on it now.Will it accept a stick of pc 133 instead of pc 100.Will it reject it or accept it, and will i have repercussions from it. What would it do etc..
 

A:Will my mobo accept this ram?

More than likely your motherboard will accept it, but it will only run at PC100 speed. And I doubt you will have any problems, just you will not be running the ram at it maximum capacity. If you could give us some more info, like what kind of mobo, ram, etc. you have it would be good.

Hello,

I have done everything I can think of to allow incoming RDP sessions, but it is not working.

I have checked the box under system properties/remote (Allow Remote Assistance connection to this computer) and I have check the box under McAfee Firewall/ports and system services for port 3389.

I have also temporarily turned off the firewall....no good.

I know that system I am RDP'ing from works because I can get to a Windows XP machine.

Thanks in advance.

Hello to the BleepingComputer community,First of all I'm sorry I haven't finished some of the steps from the Preparation Guide. It's because these steps require a reboot (e.g. Step 6: Disable your CD Emulation Software - DeFogger will ask me to reboot the machine), and I have a bad feeling about the question if it is safe to reboot in my situation: I'm not sure if I have a type of malware which is ready to infect the BIOS - if it is so, then it could infect it much easier during the reboot process.- If there is a good way to find out what is the problem (and fix the BIOS threat part if it really is present) without rebooting / shutting down this PC, or at least without booting from this hard drive (which I feel is probably infected), then please tell me what should I do.- If you know a place / forum where I can get a specialized help for this (seemingly BIOS-malware related) situation, please tell me where I could go.- If there is no way to move forward, I'll go ahead and risk the reboot, and follow the other steps (steps 6 to 10) in the Preparation Guide, no problem.I kindly ask you to please read below the details of the problem as it occured to me, and the things I have tried so far.The PC is AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core BE-2350 2.1GHz, Motherboard Biostar TA690G AM2 (with AWARD BIOS), 4GB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, and an ASUS EAH4870 card added a few years ago.It's with WinXP SP3, AVG Free 2012, (standard) Windows Firewall, and it's behind a router.I ...

There are few internet sites that i cannot view, certain forums & email providers I cannot log into due to my computer not accepting cookies.

95% of sites are fine, just a few problem ones.

The problem is exactly the same in both IE and firefox.

Its really starting to drive me nuts, as I have checked the custom cookie handling countless times, cleared cache, temp files etc.

I am running on xp.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, i'm starting to lose sleep over it now.

Since updating to Netscape 4.79 I can no longer accept any Java updates from any website. I uninstalled 4.79 and reinstalled 4.78 and the problem still persists.

I go through the entire DL procedure, give the access permission and then get an error message at the end of the install.

I changed my TEMP folder to the same drive as Netscape is installed on and that did not make any difference.

I'm using Win98 and a dial-up connection

There is no detail button in the error box. All it says is "an install error has occured... exiting"

I have also removed and reinstalled Java (twice)
 

A:Can not accept Java updates

Hiya and welcome

You say you get an error that comes up when you try to install it. Does it have a Details button on it? If so, click on it and copy/paste the contents here.

Need the error really.

Regards

To make a long story short, I'm following this guide to allow my Dreamcast to connect through my computer's broadband connection.

I got through it all fine until I have to create a connection that can accept incoming connections. I go into the new connection wizard but on the screen to set up an incomming connection, upon clicking next, I get the following message (sorry for using putfile):http://putfile.com/pic.php?pic=10/29922373750.jpg&s=x10

I'm assuming it's an XP Home Edition thing, which is what I'm running, but I'm not sure.

Hello, I have a HPDM server setup on a virtual machine. I have about 40 HPt520 thin clients as well. I disabled USB drives on all of the thin clients when I initially imaged them and it appears that I missed a few. I want to disable them for security reasons obviously. I know that I can do this in the registry. I changed the Start value to 4 (disabled) and the changes do not commit in HPDM. I tried using HPDM to create a task and modify the registry directly and this did not work. I also created another task that deploys the registry file on the local drive of the thin client and the executes it as a script with the command prompt. This did not work either. What I suspect is happening is that the thin client is executing the task and then windows overwrites the registry and none of the changes apply. How can I fix this? Thanks! [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\USBSTOR]"Type"=dword:00000001"Start"=dword:00000004"ErrorControl"=dword:00000001"ImagePath"=hex(2):73,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,32,00,5c,00,44,00,\52,00,49,00,56,00,45,00,52,00,53,00,5c,00,55,00,53,00,42,00,53,00,54,00,4f,\00,52,00,2e,00,53,00,59,00,53,00,00,00"DisplayName"="USB Mass Storage Driver""BootFlags"=dword:00000004

Running Win 7/64 with wlm 12 (avg 2015 etc)

I can access outlook.com via ie11 no probs so we know the credentials are right.

However when we sign in on wlm 12 it won't accept the credentials. On a friend's system they have no issues with the same set-up with their hotmail a/c; we copied their server settings etc, so we know those are right.

I understand that our friends at Microsoft have changed things, not just once but several times so as far as I can see their is no tutorial to resolve this issue. Primarily MS have changed the way that Outlook.com presents security settings - something about dual verification whatever that is.

I am not against improving security, but for heavens sake lets have some documentation as to how it now works. Can any one give me step by step guide to find a way through this silly maze.

many thanks
