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.)

Hi, after updating the bios to version 9FCN27WW I'm experiencing Windows 10 startup problems (booting the system crashes on the home screen), with other Linux operating systems not happening. I have the BIOS set to Boot Mode, from "UEFI" to "Legacy", changing the next Boot priority item from UEFI to Legacy First and saving the setting, restarting crashes again, but if it enters the bios and resets to Boot Mode, from "Legacy" to "UEFI" and saving the settings again, the operating system will re-operate. Salve dopo l'aggiornamento del bios alla versione 9FCN27WW sto riscontrando problemi di avvio di Windows 10 (l'avvio del sistema si blocca nella schermata iniziale), con altri sistemi operativi Linux non succede. Ho il BIOS impostato su Boot Mode, da "UEFI" a "Legacy", cambiando la voce successiva Boot priority da UEFI a Legacy First e salvando l'impostazione,  al riavvio si blocca di nuovo ma, se rientrando nel bios e reimpostando su Boot Mode, da "Legacy" a "UEFI" e salvando di nuovo le impostazioni, il sistema operativo funziona nuovamente.

Hey all ... OK,  this P70 seems to have bricked on 01DEC17 during a Win 10 update reboot (FYI - there was no battery present in the system at the time, so, it should not  have processed any Lenovo Companion download-sourced BIOS update(s), even though I know a BIOS update has been available for some time now) ... I get the initial Lenovo boot logo (white letters in a red banner on a black background) with the text advice: 'To interrupt normal startup, press Enter' and then the system hangs at that point before completing POST. Pressing either of the Enter keys, or, F1, F10 or F12 have no effect, no matter whether done singly or repeatedly, slowly or quickly ... at any point of startup, such as it is. I have tried starting from 'BIOS Update (Bootable CD) for Windows 10 (64-bit), 8.1 (64-bit), 7 (64-bit) - ThinkPad P70' downloaded from https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n1dur30w.iso at: https://support.lenovo.com/ca/en/downloads/ds106086 ... this latter is Version 2.20, Release Date 07/12/2017 (presumably 07DEC17 ...

Different Linux distributions are also not possible to install and also to boot into Live CD mode. The BIOS switched various modes, AHCI \ Compatible, Legasy \ UEFI.

Hi,yesterday I updated new BIOS 9SKT99A to ThinkCentre M92p (motherboard is7xm rev. 1.0). BIOS is taken from the official website of Lenovo. The update was made using the program "Flash UEFI BIOS update (Flash from operating system version)" - 9sjy99usa.exe from Windows 7 Pro x64.Now after BIOS update is PC constant reboot. The last picture before rebooting: FW status recovery error. This message hangs 0.5 seconds on the built-in video card, or 2-3 seconds on the external video card (in my case, the NVIDIA GT 730). Only thing I can do is access BIOS setting or choose boot device thru F12 or F1.I did:F9 (reset to default) and CMOS reset - no change, Boot mode UEFI or LEGACY - no change, Boot device (USB/DVD of W7, W8, W10, network boot) - no change, Disconnecting all boot devices - nochange.I need help.Thanks,Dmitriy.

A:Lenovo ThinkCentre M92p. After updating the BIOS from 06/30/2017, the system restarts constantly.

Burn a CD with the BIOS ISO, and follow the procedure for recovering from a failed BIOS update in the HMM.   If unsuccessful, do the same with the previous version of BIOS, which is at the very bottom of your system's BIOS download page. 
 
Edit:  try the older version first, if that works, then do a regular CD ISO update to the latest.

Hello All,

I saw this tread which included some issues with AHCI and I have a few questions.

I recently upgraded my bios on my 965P-DS3 V3.3 motherboard from F10 to the newer F12 version. I went straight into settings and tweaked the Bios per a guide I found on hardocp forums.

I enable AHCI, and set some other SATA settings (my current drive was plugged into an orange socket). Rebooted, XP was sluggish to load and then blue screened. I then disabled AHCI and rebooted using optimized defaults. Only now I'm experiencing very loooooong load times on just about anything. Games, apps, the HDD light is on but it doesn't seem to be reading all the time. Things will eventually load but it's taking 10x as long as usual. So the HDD works, but something is definitely screwy.

So my question is due I revert back to F10 Bios, or do a windows repair or roll back to a restore point, or did I seriously screw up my HDD??? I think I know my course of action (roll back the bios), but I just wanted some more info before I take that risk and frustration of potentially screwing it up. So if anyone has a similar experience with the HDD and this board, plz let me know how you fixed it. Prior to the Bios Update things seemed to be working fine.

Thanks,
Jack

Welcome to our forum spinalgr1990.

Are you having a problem that you think updating bios will solve?

Are you trying to update the bios exactly as the motherboard instructs you to.

These are just some basic question that need to be answered no matter what motherboard you have.

What are the bios you have now?

Is this the exact message you receive?

A:Problem updating Tecra M5 BIOS

Hi

The P003Fv370.exe is a package.
Click right on this package and choose unzip here.
Now you should see other files inside this .exe package.

From my knowledge there should be a file which starts the BIOS update.

If it will not work, I guess you need the Toshiba original preinstalled system to update the BIOS.
At the other hand I don?t think that BSOD appears due to old BIOS version.
I guess update will not solve the problem.

Possibly the BSOD appears due to some critical software issue or hardware problems? so would be really interesting to know if the same happens using Toshiba preinstalled system

I am in the process of updating my BIOS settings on my laptop (which I was prompted to do by Toshiba's hardware updating service).

I followed all of the instructions provided by the program as it extracted and ran the update. However, the computer began the process of restarting, but has been "logging off" windows (Vista Business) for about an hour now. I'm not sure how to stop the process without causing serious damage to my BIOS, but this doesn't seem normal.

Hi everyone ! I have been Trying to contact support for the longest but for some reason, my SNID and S/N are never recognised... Anyways,I have a AXC-605-EB31 which at base was Windows 8, Intel Core i5 processor 4440, Intel HD Graphics, 1TB Hard Drive, DDR3 Memory. As i booted it for the first time, There was an update right away to Windows 8.1. After an update to Win8.1 a few monts after i got my computer, one of my games started to bug out, and i heard it might have been caused by the game itself being too old for the intel card which was too powerfull for it. In the end, i left the game and never went back to it.I think i did something at the time, but i can't rememeber. I might have tried to downgrade it at some point. As time went by, the Windows10 Update rolled by, so i signed in and got the update on Day 1. I must mention that i got multiple graphic card crashes happening from time to time. But i was expecting a Win10 Update to fix the problem. Later On, Minecraft, for some reason had problem loading textures and i still didn't know why. At the time, came to the Acer Website to try to get some support but couldn't get any (and i didn't know Community existed...) , so i went to Intel to try to fix the problem... to no avail. In the end, i decided to get myself a new graphics card (a Radeon HD 6450) to replace the current buggy one.

hi starfire1801,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
During boot-up, if pressing Fn+F2 does allow you to access the BIOS, can you try to:
1. Remove the AC adapter and battery then press the power button for 20secs.
2. Reconnect the AC adapter and press the OneKey Recovery button. If a menu appears, choose BIOS Setup.
3. If you get the same problem, download a free copy of Windows 8 Enterprise (90day trial) and install it on the system. When you get Windows 8 up and running, try accessing theBIOs via the UEFI Firmware Settings.

I your Bios has the option of udma up to 6 then generally the bios supports the Mode! and your problem is that the HDD does not support the mode (cant remember if you said it does).

You are probably using wrong criteria for bios upgrade search.
Try WWW.driverguide,com

You Need the MB's Manufacturers Name or at least the MB Chipset and bios Manufacturers Name as well. go to the Computers muanufacturers website (you probably done that already) and search model.

otherwise Download a System info utility from Tech Spot, I use SiSoft Sandra or AIDA32.. (sandra might cause bluescreen on older machines).. Aida problably will have link direct to bios update site. hope this was of some help

Question,
I am upgrading my system from Windows 98 to XP Pro, Full (clean) install. I plan on wiping everything out on the hard drive and start from scratch. Is it necessary to update the BIOS, and if so, where do I find the update? The computer I am upgrading was put together by a local person and he is no longer around, so there is no manufacturer's website to go to and I am not for sure who made the motherboard.
 

A:Updating BIOS

It is a good idea to run the Compatibility wizard on the XP Disc prior to installing . . it will tell you what hardware and software is compatible. ( Insert the XP disc while the system is on and choose "Check for Compatibility" )

I like to update to the newest BIOS when I Upgrade a pc to XP, but it is not a exercize to be undertaken lightly . . I use a UPS to prevent a power loss from converting the machine into a trotline weight . .

You can download and run the Belarc Advisor or Everest to find out what MotherBoard you have ( and a lot of other details about the system as well )

Good luck . .

A:updating BIOS

Most manufacturers have updated BIOS on their websites for download. If it is a custom build, the motherboard manufacturer will have one.

It is not usually necessary to update BIOS unless you have a particular issue that the update resolves . .

Does anyone know how I can install a BIOS update on a Pavilion 6835 running XP? The only instructions I can find require me to be in true DOS mode and that's not possible (as far as I know) in XP.

So lately i have been thinking of updating my BIOS now first of all how do you know when its time to upgrade and how does one go about doing this process. I have the Asus P8H61 MLE/CSM. Any insight or help is appreciated

A:Updating BIOS how and when

Unless there is a specific problem you're trying to fix, and you know for certain that the BIOS upgrade will fix that, do NOT do a BIOS update. This is nothing like apps version updates or driver updates. If something goes wrong during the BIOS update, your machine is turned into an electric brick.

My advice to folks is to NOT do any BIOS updates unless you are sure of the following:
1) You have a way to store off the current working BIOS code to a media that can be used to restore it
2) You have a way to restore that saved BIOS code if the update goes badly.

That said, ASUS board I have used in the past had something known as EZ-flash (or something like that) that involved you booting with a special key combination that then launched a BIOS update utility. You could then stick in a diskette or a USB stick and save off the current BIOS. IF that utility still exists with your motherboard, it will be explained in the manual that came with it.

Hi all,

My PC seems to keep turning itself on after I power off and apparently a common issue is that you need to update your bios.

My Motherboard is GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 AMD 760G (Socket AM3+) Micro-ATX Motherboard. Using System Tools I've found out that my BIOS version/date is "Award Software International, Inc. F2, 10/08/2012".

I think I've discovered the correct motherboard on this site

This is how far I've got - unsure what I need, or should download from the options there (and even if I have the right site). Obviously I'm really cautious about all of this so would really appreciate any help or advice?

cheers

A:Updating my BIOS?

Hi,

Its a good idea to be cautious. Please check on your motherboard to see whether its a Rev. 4.1. If it is, then that is indeed the BIOS to download and install, and that is the correct site.

Hiya doin' CHILL here, I need to know how to update my BIOS for my E-machine W3623 System. The BIOS is very outdated (7/29/2005) which I think maybe causing certain performance issues I have been having. I at least want to have the most recent BIOS running for the machine (for optimal performance) which I have already looked into (which is the Coconut Creek CR94510J[1].15A.1015 2009). I realize this update MUST be downloaded straight from the manufacturer ONLY or I could risk screwing myself over.

I downloaded the file from the E-machines support site. Problem is, when I try to run it I get the Intel Express Update Set-up screen which comes up and then it says "This program is unable to continue. Internal System Error: This is a programming or internal problem." After that I can't continue and the process automatically shuts down. So now I'm stuck and don't what know to do. Here is some more information about my system:

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64x
Intel Express Family Chipset 82945G
RAM: 2GB

Also another side question: Is this unit capable of more RAM than 2GB? Thanks in advance and I would GREATLY appreciate any help I can receive on this as I am lost. Let me know if you need anymore specific specs on the system.

A:Need BIG help with updating BIOS

Welcome to SevenForums,

Performance issues aren't necessarily fixed up updating the BIOS. You are running a fairly low-spec PC so I wouldn't expect the performance to be outstanding. What sort of issues are you having? There may be easier way to fix this.

That is the correct BIOS update - how are you flashing the BIOS?

Unfortunately, your machine supports a maximum of 2GB only.

Regards,
Golden
