I'm on a fresh install of 64-bit windows 8.1, but the BIOS installer gives the following error message: "Your machine does not match with this BIOS. Update process will be halted." Why on earth is this? I googled the error message but this only seems to be a problem with people trying to upgrade the BIOS from win 10... but I'm definitely on 8.1, it even says Windows 8.1 Build 9600 in the corner. The only modification I made is that I upgraded the ram to 8 GB (from 4 GB), but the BIOS update fails even if I take the extra stick out.Read other answers
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.

Hello everyone! I ama new user and i am coming up with this post as I couldn`t find any kind of solution for my problem.Recently I decided to do a reinstallation of my operating system, which also previously was Windows 7 Ultimate (x64). The installation went as usual, and after finishing it I went on to install all the latest drivers from the Lenovo site, for my product. When getting close to installing almost all the drivers i`ve needed, i stumbled upon a new version of the BIOS amnd the drivers and sfotware recommended for my laptop, by the producer. So i proceeded to install the upgrade, restarted the computer when it prompted me to do so, but after the so-called restart the laptop did not boot up as usual. At first it was telling me to not do anything as the BIOS is being flashed and then it was telling me something about some sort of image processing, things that i did not understand at the time (i have never encountered anything like that). After that my screen turned black. I have not done anything for a few couple of minutes as i thought it was supposed to be like that, but then i just force shut it down and unplugged the AC adapter. When trying to boot it all up again, the only thing i got was a black screen and nothing else.After doing a little bit of research it appears that, somehowm i`ve managed to corrupt the bios on my laptop or something, and nothing else would work at this point. I tried to remove the BIOS battery and the ram and then put them all back, trye... Read moreRead other answers

I attempted a BIOS update earlier today. After it finished, it said that the screen may be black and LED's may blink for a while after (I don't remember the exact wording). Well, the screen was still black after about 4 hours, so I turned it off, and now it refuses to boot. There are no beeps, no error codes, no POST, nothing, so I figure the BIOS must be corrupted or something. I've tried resets and the windows key+b trick with no luck. I've spent a few hours trying to figure out how to run a the BIOS from a USB, but info is a bit scarce, so I couldn't figure it out. So, what else can I try? I don't really have the time nor the money to send it in for repairs, but I need this computer for school by next week.
Edit: A while ago, I had to restore my laptop which erased my HP_TOOLS partition. So, if anyone has the same or a similar laptop and still has their HP_TOOLS partition, a DL link would probably make this a lot easier to fix.

Hello everyone! I have recently ungraded the motherboard of my B590 to HM77 so that I could use it with an Iintel core i5. My question is, is the latest BIOS for Lenovo B590 for both versions of these laptops? I mean, does it support HM77 chip? The current BIOS of the board is very old (2013) and Windows won't switch to Nvida GPU despite it's presense in the device mangager. Thanks and I really appreacite your support!

I have a huge problem with a B590 Notebook: I replaced the harddisk for a test installation of windows 10. This was already quite a pain in the youknowwhat, since it didn't want to boot from USB-stick. I was able to solve that by changing a boot-option in the BIOS to 'legacy' and changing the boot-order and could continue with the windows 10-installation. Then I wanted to reinstall the old harddrive and run the original windows 8 again. Unfortunately the computer doesn't seem to recognize the original harddrive a boot-device anymore. Instead it seems to search for a boot-device on the network (in an endless loop).The problem now is, that I can't access the BIOS anymore. Pressing F1 as stated on the boot screen has no effect (just like pressing F2, F10, F12, ESC, Enter, AnyKey).My next idea was entering the BIOS from the still running windows 10 installation (By pressing Shift+Restartbutton.) Strangely there is no 'UEFI Firmware settings'-option So how can I enter the BIOS to check the boot-settings/order on this notebook? Thanks!

But I realy need to boot Windows, but it is not possible becoáuse of UEFI being turnd off. Also It is not possible to access bios, because BIOS was accessed from recovery windows menu, whitch doesnt load anymore. Also when it is booting up (lenovo logo) I press esc (no other keys are workind) which open menu where I "can" boot to BIOS. So I press F1 menu dissapears but I end up with same PXE-E61 error. Any advice how to enter BIOS and change it back to UEFI mode ? thanks

Hi Lenovo Community, My question is on the subject, I want to install an SSD Disk on my Lenovo B590 model 6274. Is it possible ? Can somebody help me? Thanks for your help Regards.
Welcome to the Forums.
The B590 (6274) does support an SSD and you can opt to get a 2.5" or an mSATA form factor.
- Sample items
- Sample items
Since you already have a HDD, you can try to get an mSATA SSD and make it as your boot drive and just make the HDD a storage drive (i.e., For picture, movies, etc.).
- Sample image
Alternatively, you can just replace the HDD with a 2.5" SSD and optionally get an caddy or a SATA enclosure to convert the HDD as an external drive.
You can refer to this video as a reference:
my harddisk went dead (click-click) so i took one from another laptop and formatted. got a boxed win 8 but i can't install. Secure boot is off - I can access the bios but when i boot up all i get is a blinking cursor and black screen. the PC came originally with an oem install. I think the gpt table is missing (or something).
Have you tried to format the drive as part of the install? What is the HDD size?

If Win7 will install you can update BIOS then. If not, use Asus flash utility which is slighly riskier than updating via Windows.

Well in the old days we had the boot disk that we'd insert if we wanted to boot up to DOS. But I've gone stupid on how to do that in Windows 7.
I have a bios update that I want to install. Here are the instructions that I received but step 4 reads "Boot the system to DOS by using the bootable device." I'm not sure how to do that. It instructs you to put it on a USB key, but when I boot to the key I get the message "No operating system found." So there must be a step to make the device bootable?
Any insight? Here are the full instructions that I got when I downloaded the updated bios.
NOTE: You must provide a DOS bootable media, such as a USB key. This executable file does not create the DOS system files.
1. Browse to the location where you downloaded the file.
2. Update the name of the file to DOS recognizable format (8.3). If you do not update the filename to 8.3 format, the filename will be truncated to 8.3 format.
3. Copy the file to the bootable device.
4. Boot the system to DOS by using the bootable device.
5. Run the executable under DOS. Follow the instructions provided by the flash utility.

Hi All -
I am trying to install the XPS_9550_1.2.19 bios update for the XPS 9550 and I get an error message saying "Error validating password" when I try to run the installer. I've tried rebooting several times. None of the hardware has been modified on the device, and all the parts are original, same as they shipped with. The laptop is less than 2 months old.
The service tag IS set in the BIOS, and there is no BIOS password configured.
Additionally - I am seeing 3 minute boot times, this is not an exaggeration, typically between 180 and 210 seconds from power on to Windows desktop and this is on a CLEAN install of the latest insider preview after wiping the drive. Admittedly I am running the Windows Insider builds, but I have to due to a program I wrote for work that requires the Linux Subsystem for Windows stuff and the released version in the AU version of Windows 10 is missing too many features to make what I made work. I have checked that all drivers are installed and are on the latest versions. This one has the 512GB XG4 Toshiba M2 PCIE SSD.

So I just bought a new graphics card which is the ZOTAC GTX 1050 (doesn't require extra power)for my HP Pro 3330 MT Desktop PC, 300 Watt PSU.Installed the card on my motherboard, made sure i inserted it well into my PCI EX 16, started the computer, heard beeps with about 30 seconds interval for each beep with the following screens: 1. The HP LogoThis logo takes so long. And pressing "ESC" does nothing. Then after 5 beeps it goes black, and another 5 or 6 beeps when it's black, I'm not sure. 2. The Windows Logo appeared, but with a wrong alignment, not on the center.The screen is cropped. You can see the loading circle is cropped. 3. The Windows 10 Login Screen, but messed up picture.I can login and can shut down using the ALT+F4 keyboard shortcut. But the display is like that.First I thought it might be my monitor, or my HDMI to VGA converter. So I tried using my TV directly with an HDMI cable, no converter, same problem.

I've downloaded the bios update QF750B200_EC120_WIN.exe for my F750 and when I attempted to run the update, it fails & I received the message:
"The AC adapter is not connected, or battery power is not enough.
Please connect the AC adapter, and charge the battery."
However the AC adapter is connected & the battery is also fully charged. Does anyone have any ideas for making this work?
I've solved it but thought I'd put the solution here in case anyone else had a similar problem. Basically I had to:
1 - Uninstall "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control Method Battery" using Device Manager
2 - In Device Manger, go to Action>Scan For Hardware Changes
3 - Close Lid & Remove Battery
4 - Reboot without battery
5 - Insert battery
That seemed to sort it out so it was probably a problem witth the ACPI-Compiant Control Method Battery Driver or something like that. I think I'd disabled it & re-enabled it a while back so something probably went awry then.
Hi, I was doing a fresh install for a friend because her laptop would crash if the screen was closed and noticed she was running v1.0 bios on her Toshiba C50-b-14d laptop. I downloaded the newest version 5.1 from the official site and upgraded the bios. When I installed W10 it would install, and then freeze after the restart. I tried booting in safe but it said I couldn't because windows couldn't complete the install in safe mode. I tried to install again multiple times and the same problem every time.
I went into the bios and changed from CMS to UEFI and reinstalled. This time after the restart it got to the 'Getting Devices ready' screen and froze at 10%.
I have no idea what to try next. Any help would be appreciated.

Good day, I have two questions about Portege 3410.
The first one: I cannot update BIOS (there is 1.50 in use, I want to update to 1.60). The instruction does not work: I connect Teac USB-drive on USB-port, switch USB-FDD emulation to Enable, switch notebook On with F12 pressed, the message "Ready to update BIOS..." appears, I presed key, but nothing happend. What's wrong?
The second one: I cannot install Windows XP on to notebook (it does not boot neither FDD-USB, nor External DVD-USB).
How can I install Windows?
Just one question: Why do you want to update the BIOS? Is it really necessary?
I ask this because this update is always a little bit risky and you could damage the ROM module.
Anyway, have you tried to load default settings in BIOS before you start the update and install XP?
You can install XP without CD. Therefore you must copy the i386 folder on the HDD from another computer and some booting files for HDD? I think you should search a little bit with Google to find workaround for this. You should find enough! ;)
This update will not install. It runs and runs---just like other BIOS Updates. I've had this Notebook just 2 days--heap o rubbish---including Windows 10.After previous experience with HP I said never again HP---Should have stuck to that!! Trying to make contact with support via email is a waste of time--and why?--because they know thery're selling **bleep**e.

Several days ago I installed several updates that were identified by the MSI Live update for my machine. One of these updates for the BIOS which I stupidly included (yes I understand now that was a dumb mistake).
After rebooting, I was presented to "please insert boot disk and press any key" so I figured some settings were set incorrectly in the BIOS. After playing around there for awhile and checking the boot order and SATA settings among other things, everything looked fine but I still could not boot to my SSD with Win7. The drive is listed in BIOS but I cannot boot to it. I also manually reset the BIOS configuration by jumping CMOS battery and that did not help either.
After giving up on the BIOS I put in a Ubuntu disk and ran Disk/Memory diagnostics both which returned no issues. At this point I began to suspect an issue with the MBR on the disk so I followed these directions on Tom's Hardware:

The update likely changed the BIOS setting for SATA controller. Preferred is AHCI but it might have been different before BIOS update reset to defaults.
Check also that the HD is set to boot first and that it is detected in BIOS setup and from your boot disk.
If these fail, browse into the HD with your Linux disk to copy out any data externally, then I could set to AHCI to Clean Install Windows 7 .

I'm more curious than anything, for the device is running Windows 10 just fine, but do you have to first install Bios update A17 prior to A19? I couldn't get A19 to install. Thanks.
It's more likely you're going to need to build a bootable flash drive with an earlier version of Windows to get the flash to work -- Windows 10 is not supported on this model, so it's very likely the flash installer won't run under 10 regardless of which version you're trying to flash.
Rufus is one easy way to make a bootable flash drive that will allow the flash to work.
