hp pavilion 23 aio pc - currupted BIOS

Q: hp pavilion 23 aio pc - currupted BIOS

Hello HP-team! I've got "hp pavilion 23 aio pc", CZC240BKNV, model 23-b000ec, which doesn't boot. No screen, no POST-sounds. 1. I downloaded sp67096, 70065 and 70066, copied the BIOS to the USB-Flash and tried to recover it via Win+B (+Power) keys combination, but unsuccessfully: no any result. 2. I tried to read data from Windond W25Q64 Flash memory using the external SPI-programmer, connected to ROM-RECOVERY connector, but unsuccessfully also. 3. I removed mentioned W25Q64 memory from the PCB, soldered the wires to its pins and connected directly to programmer, but still w/o results. Thus I decided W25Q64 got NG and has to be replaced. 4. I found S25FL165K (manufacturer is Spansion), soldered it onto PCB and flashed via ROM-RECOVERY connector using the external SPI-programmer. I tried to burn LEE_816.ROM (from sp67096), LIN_8011.BIN (from sp70065) and LEE_817.ROM (fro)sp70066). The flashing process "per se" finished successfully always, but PC doesn't start as well. After I turn it on, it restarts only after some seconds. The screen is black, no any sound. So may the problem be in S25FL165K compatibility? It has same protocol, capacity, but there are also some differences, which might be significant. So my questions are: a). Is S25FL165K ( Spansion) compartible with my PCB? Or do I have to use Windond W25Q64 exactly? Or something different? b). As I mentioned, I tried to flash *.rom or *.bin files from sp*****.exe-packages, downloaded from HP-site. Is it enough? Or should I do something in additional? Or...? So, I would be glad for any help. BR

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.

Hi i'd like to restore a previous bios to my computer or have support help me with getting it to support ACPI devices. I bought a GDC Beast and a GTX graphics card, plugged it in to my mini-pci slot and tried to boot, was greeted by a blue screen that said this bios is not ACPI Compliant, so which bios would I need to use to make the error go away and boot using my graphics card? The current bios file is sp77491.exe and it hasnt been updated since 2016.Thanks for your help.

I've been having a problem recently with my computer, when ever I try to download things that are a bit big (190 MB or bigger) they always corrupt.

I'm on service pack 1.a because I can't even download windows updates because of this. I've tried reinstalling XP several times and nothing seems to change.

I have no clue whats wrong, and it has been becoming a bigger and bigger annoyance as time goes on.

Are you downloading via wireless? If so try using an ethernet cable and see if the problem disappears.

I have dell inspiron laptop and 32 bit windows-8. My laptop has inbuilt webcam and it was working fine. But i installed a new external webcam. And both the webcams stopped working. I tried installing driver software from the driver-DVD of my laptop but it also didnt fix it.

Please help me fix this problem.
The webcam cannot be used by other softwares like skype.

A:Driver of webcam currupted

Hi Prakash, Welcome to Eight forums.

Installation of multiple webcam drivers and programs might cause conflicts. If you are using more than one software program to use your webcam, such as Skype for instant messaging and YouCam for saving videos, then make sure that only one program is open when using the webcam. Do not attempt to open both programs at the same time and close your webcam software when you are done. It is a good idea to wait 5 to 10 seconds after closing webcam software, before opening another webcam software program.
Simply restarting the computer can resolve most software conflicts. If problems persist, uninstall one of the webcam software titles and reinstall the software you want to use.

It might be a hidden file. It creates a ReadyBoost.sfcache file on the flash drive. I imagine just deleting it and starting over woudl fix it. Corruption happens if the flash drive was pulled out or bumped slightly in the socket and not disconnected properly.

Hi, I have been lurking for over a week, I have a second computer, that I only had for about 24 hours before it was completely overtaken by virus, spyware malware. I did a registration for this forum, but even though it went through I couldn't post until I sent a message and was manually activated by someone... so thanks... but while I wasn't able to log in, I finally became frustrated with my second unit, (that didn't have anything installed on it or saved that was critical) and I just reformatted.

This is where I have a bigger issue.
The unit I am on now is very full of important stuff and reformatting at this point just isnt an option. Besides, it was built for me and I dont have the XP pro disc to do so anyway...

I had a internet style keyboard that I had bought from walmart, it plugs in with usb instead of the prong plug. It wasn't working well on the other unit (that was infested) because it is an older slower dog, so I switched it with the keyboard on this machine. This machine started acting bizarre and then I started getting an extreme amt of popups and it was very slow and usually this computer is hella fast! SO I booted into safemode and ran SDfix, and spybot and one otehr thing... it found a few problems and fixed them. Computer is now running faster, and no popups so far... BUT

Hi people.
As the title suggests I have some driver problems..
Today I tried to install over my Nvidia Drivers because Minecraft was running into problems.

I went to start the installer it went to check my system for compatibility it did that for about a millisecond then went past the options screen and gave me "Nvidia Driver Installer Failed" with no explanation. I just assumed that the drivers had to be uninstalled before re-installing.

I uninstalled the drivers in safe mode through (control panel > add or remove programs)
and hence why I am asking this question the same screen came up "Nvidia Driver Installer Failed" without going to the option screen.

When I check the device status Windows gives me "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"
Clicking un-install on device manager does nothing.
I've tried using driver sweeper and multiple techniques has anyone got any suggestions?

I also tried system restore but I accidentally cleared my restores the other day (silly me) and windows update gives me an install error 800f001D8 or something along those lines, I googled all of these and found nothing useful.
System Specs:
Win 7 64-bit
2 GTX 570's in SLI (re-seated them twice to see if that would solve the problem but, no.)
Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3
Intel i7 3890
12GB of RAM

A:Nvidia Driver currupted, cannot uninstall or install over

Try device manager, right click your gfx driver, properties, try roll back driver. Once its fixed it then install the new driver on top choosing custom install and tick clean install.

Let us now how you go on.

I was wondering that if I stored one of my files in a long file path like:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Encarta\Movies\Long\Human\Anatomy\Skin\Epidermis\Cells\etc\etc\etc\etc\etc\etc\etc\etc\etc\epidermis.jpeg

Would the file become currupt? Would be too long to actually even exist?
I was wondering because this happens everytime I try to make myself a backup cd with folders going extremely deep into the directories, and it wont let me burn the cd. This also happens when I extract an RAR file with long file names, so I have to open up the archive and copy the file into a smaller directory.

Help?

Hello afsmart, welcome to Vista Forums!





There is the option if needed to restore the PC to the original factory state; any drivers needed should be available at the link below.


Toshibe Help & Support








Be advised: this erases all data, and reloads all factory default software. Be sure to back up all your important personal data beforehand!

To access the Toshiba recovery partition, power off the laptop. Hold down the 0 (zero) key and turn the laptop on. Keep holding down the zero key until the TOSHIBA logo appears, where you should start tapping the zero key repeatedly. Stop if the unit beeps or when the TOSHIBA logo disappears. The screen should flash ** HDD RECOVERY MODE ** for a split second, then load the Toshiba recovery program right from the hard drive.

A:Hard drive made unusable or possibly currupted by system restore?

so i decided to do a system recovery with the built in Tool hp has=>You mean restore using recovery partition? So you wanna go back to initial installation when you bought it?

pagefile.sys seems to be 195gb big=>close to impossible. But you can delete it if you want

factory image drive D has 1.53gb of 10.8GB =>1.53GB used or 1.53GB free?

Hi Guys-n-Gals
I have an HP Pavilion DV9500 Laptop
I have Ubuntu Linux on a Samsung HM500JJ 500Gb HDD in bay one, boots with
no problems at all.
I have Windows XP PRO SP3 preinstalled on a WD1600BEVS 160Gb hdd in bay two, drive not seen in BIOS so I do not have a choice to boot from it.
Ubuntu Linux still boots fine no problems.
Second HDD Win XP is seen by Ubuntu Linux and I can access folders on the drive
with no problems, so nothing wrong with drive or OS.
If I take out the drives and put the WD160 drive in bay one leaving the second bay empty it boots fine into Windows with no problems.
If I take out the WD drive and put it in bay two leaving bay one empty I get no boot, operating system not found.
If I take out the Samsung500 drive and put it in bay two leaving bay one empty I get no boot, operating system not found.
So either disk will boot fine when in drive bay one.
Neither disk will boot when in drive bay two.
If both drives are in both bays either way round the drive in the second bay will not show in the BIOS and will not boot
Question? How do I solve this problem, HP as usual are no help.
Thanks in anticipation of any help.

I got a big problem. A friend asked me to update his OS on a HP Pavilion 900MHZ desktop. So i did. He also asked to upgrade his memory from from 256mb to 512mb. So i tried. He has the 168pin Sdram DIMM. One stick worked fine. But when I put in the second stick it errors. "bios not acpi compliant"

So i looked up the error. First i found that i can just turn off the acpi in cmos and it will work. No option in cmos. Then I found to redo the install and at the setup screen hit F7 instead of F6. Did not work. Blue screen during install. Also found that i need to update the bios. Went to HP site. NOthing there. Went to motherboard site. Its an asus k7m board. Got the updated bios. Got the flash program. No luck. Says bios/chipset not found. CAnnot flash the bios. Thing is i am stuck. Got the memory from a local computer shop. He had to special order it since its so old. He will not take it back. $70. I need to flash this bios.

Anybody know where i can find a flash that will upgrade the bios or a website to help me with this?

The memory stick is good. I can put either one in and it works fine, just not both. Very frustrated.

Thanks

What model Pavillion is it? Many times though you have an asus mobo the Bios has been customized for HP to work with it. And the motherboard may also not be a standard asus K7m motherboard, being a custom setup for HP.

I purchased this laptop in December with Windows 10 installed. A few weeks ago I started getting a notification in Support Assistant to update the system BIOS.  No matter how many times I run the update the notification persists and the Action Log has never recorded this update as having taken place. After checking with this Forum, it appears that other users have had issues with BIOS updates, and HP Support cautions against updating the System BIOS unless there is a compelling reason to do so. 1. Since I am not having any issues which would compell such an update, should I simply dismiss the notification? 2. If such an update is not advised, why does Support Assistant display its notification? 3. Would dismissing the notification render this Notebook suseptible to security vulnerabilities? 4. The instructions on the HP website for updating theSystem BIOS are considerably more complicated than the procedure launched from Support Assistant. What exactly is this?  The update in Support Assistant is Softpac number SP76353, Version F.19Ap1, Size 8.89MB.

A:HP Pavilion BIOS Update

Hi @LAB7, Thank you for posting at HP Forums! I have read your post and wanted to help. I understand that you have some questions about updating the BIOS. I agreed that if there is no problem with current system running, it is not necessary to update the BIOS. However, HP support assistant will populate the notification once there is a newer version of the BIOS. You can dismiss the message and it will not cause security problems. There is another way to update the BIOS, by downloading it from HP support page. You can put your product number here on this link: http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers. Select the right OS on the page, it will show the most updated drivers of your model including the BIOS. Hope these could help. Let me know if you need further assistance. If this post helps you to reach a solution, please click the "Accept as Solution" button down below in this message. If you wish to say "thanks" for my effort to help, click the "thumbs up" to give me Kudos. Regards,

I can't figure out how to get into the bios of my HP Pavilion 500-314. When I boot the pc there is no screen that indicates what key I press to boot into bios, it just automatically goes into the HP loading screen.

A:How to boot up into the BIOS of HP Pavilion 500-314

Hi: Normally, you can tap the ESC key at the beginning of the HP splash screen to get a menu of options. From that list, select the F10 boot options menu. If that doesn't work, then see if you can get into the BIOS using the method described at the link below. Watch the video.  All brand PC's with W8.1 have this feature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZcYbxOcPV0 If that doesn't work, unfortunately, I don't have any other suggestions to offer.

I downloaded the new BIOS from the HP support page for the 569, it's BIOS A0.07 Rev A from 2016-10-06.  I currently have BIOS ver 80.06 from 2015-04-01.  I tried to install from the UEFI BIOS firmware upgrade menu and it says "BIOS image did not pass validation".  I also tried to install from within Windows 10 and the option to upgrade is greyed out and below its says BIOS is not compatitble with my system.  Should this BIOS upgrade be on the 569 support page?

I have my hp pavilion dm3-1011tu notebook. I would like to format it but the BIOS screen is very complex

A:hp pavilion dm3-1011tu BIOS

@Akdeniz52 I always recommend: please don't touch to BIOS if you do not know what are you looking for. Because playing around with BIOS is a shortest way to brick your machine. Now, why you need to touch to BIOS just for format your machine ? Regards.

Clarification, please! I've been told on this forum that I should upgrade the BIOS for my Pavilion g6-1d21dx to version F.48, which seems to be the latest one available on the product page. However, the BIOS currently on my machine is version F.49. Wouldn't F.49 be newer than F.48? Can anyone explain the discrepancy and tell me if there are any meaningful differences between the two BIOS versions?

Hi, i have this HP Pavilion DV5 laptop which is causing me some problems

I am currently testing two different hard drives with this laptop, and I can confirm that they are working fine.

When I turn the laptop on, the HP logo shows up a couple seconds later, and I have the option of entering the "startup menu". If i don't enter it, then it proceeds to a black screen around 5 seconds later. While this is happening, the hard drive light goes flashes on and off until the black screen. After that, the hard drive light does not flash any more. The computer is not able to boot properly, and it cannot start Windows.

However, if i enter the startup menu, than I can run diagnostics on the hard drive, and open BIOS.
The hard drive test passes easily, but it is not being recognized on BIOS. I neither can enable or disable the "notebook hard drive" because it is not contained in that list.

I should also add that these hard drives are working fine 100%, because i use them on different Laptops. (HP Pavilion DV4 and Acer Aspire One).

Please help with any suggestions.
 

A:HP Pavilion DV5 Runs BIOS Only

Hi,
Have you installed an operating system on these hard drives? Operating systems can't be transferred and a fresh install is required if you move it from one computer to another. Have you tried booting from a live CD or flash drive?
