Hi, could some one help me, my y510p is not recovering after I tried to update bios?I installed the system, and during driver installation on W7 OS I tried to update my bios and after all the installation when it restarted the start up stopped saying check cable connection. Pxe-mof: exiting Intel pe rom. No Bootable device - - insert boot disk and press any key. I tried several time to restore default bios options and restore legacy option but it is not working. In bios it appears only 8giga had. Any idea what to do?More replies

Hello, I updated the bios using this upgrade (3.05) utility, a couple of days ago. Flash BIOS update - Flash from Operating System version for IdeaPad Y410P/Y510P Version 74CN44WW (V3.05)This package updates the basic input/output system (BIOS) on IdeaPad Y410P/Y510P From this time;Installed memory (RAM) appears as only 4 GBBut before, this was 8 GB (7,8 GB usable) What may be the problem?How can I downgrade my bios to previous v2.07?Is this problem related with this bios update?Please help.(Thank you in advance)
You can try to reset the BIOS. 1) Shutdown the laptop.2) Unplug all power supply3) Take out the battery.4) Hold laptop Power button for 1 minute.5) Connect everything back and start the laptop.6) Check if your RAM is displayed correctly.9 more replies
Im starting this thread so that for all who have unlocked their bios for wirelesscard whitelist removal or what ever, using the link on techInferno using svl7 mod can have a guide as to what settings can be used to improve the performance of their y510p and what settings to stay away from. For those who have difficulties in retrieving the files from techInfernos website can pm me. Any and all suggestions and requests are welcome. Happy modding.
I would do this, but after paying £1000 for this laptop, that risk of bricking the bios..

Hello,Having an issue where I am completely unable to access my BIOS settings, after pressing F2 I am directed to the BIOS, then within seconds the keyboard stops responding to inputs. The only way out is by pressing the power button. Now for the stange part. Windows system info seems to think I am running 3.08, however the frozen BIOS screen says it is Version 3.07. I have tried running the 3.08 update .exe, and am greeted with this; ? I have also tried running the 3.05 update file, and am greeted with the exact same message (not the expected older version message). Is there a way to force the flash? I would like to have access to my BIOS again. I have also tried accessing the BIOS via the small button to the left of the left speaker, however this freezes a few seconds in as well. The computer runs normally for the most part, my only complaint is the frequent graphics card crashes/restarts under intense gaming load. Is there a way to downgrade BIOS versions, or force the update?
Is there any way to downgrade the BIOS to 3.05 using a USB drive or CD? Apparently people have been having major problems with Lenovo BIOS setups, and have had great success using modded versions to allow WLAN customization, and fix graphics card errors. Considering the factory software has failed me, I would like to give this a try.1 more replies
Just realized my dvd drive does not play DVDs since I upgraded to win 10. It doesn't even recognize dvds, showing me only a desktop.ini file instead. It plays CDs just fine and it burns DVDs as storage device, though it **may** only be burning them as a CD, haven't really tested it. I would like to get an updated driver from lenovo, but I can't get past the Q&A session, it either doesn't know my laptop or thinks I'm running win 8.1 or 7. Any help would be appreciated.

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 ...

I bought Windows 8 pro and install it into my sony vaio laptop now i change my HDD to SSD drive and i installed windows 8 pro but now i can use my product key. what should i do to fix this problem??
Why can't you use your Product Key?
You cannot install Windows 8 Upgrades onto a bare drive - you MUST have an activated qualifying OS present to upgrade from.
You will need to install Windows 7 onto the SSD, then upgrade that.
My Samsung series 3 laptop has been sending out popup messages telling me I need a bios update, I go to the Samsung software update site and this bios update has been failing, I have made several calls and chats to techs at Samsung who tell me to do what I have already done, they tell to ask for tier 2 tech, who can go in my computer and fix it , When I finally got a tier 2 tech, they told me the same thing, I told him what I had been told about him and what he could do, He said, is it working , I said yes, but settings on computer change on their own,like wifi turns itself on and that concerns me. Anyway, He said that it didn't need a bios update,even the Samsung website said this computer needed a bios update. I posted this on hardware,firmware concerns, and they told me to post here, I was going to go to a site ,that had a download that checked drivers, I was told to stay away from this.

my system says is got a file kernl.32 file that was "destroyed" All I can do is use a boot disk to get to dos i dont have windows media xp pro sp3. my somputer is a leveno t60p laptop I read in the foram that a dell full restoration disk would work on any computer as long as it was a full system restore? is this possiable as I do have one of those disks. thanks help.
I would not think that Dell disks...would work on a system made by a different OEM. That would be a violation of the license which Micrsoft has assigned to Dell, IMO...since such a disk would then be equal to a MS Genuine Windows disk (sold by Microsoft as a retail item).
FWIW: There was a time (prior to 2005) when Dell CDs/licenses were sold the same as MS Genuine XP disks/license...but Microsoft put an end to that era.
Dell restore/recovery disks which work on Lenovo laptops...would also be something Lenovo would be concerned about, IMO.
Could you post the source of this reference, please? It's possible that you misinterpreted/ignored the context of the wording.
FWIW: Windows has never issued an error message stating that a file has been "desroyed", to my knowledge. The wording will only indicate that a system file is either missing or corrupt/damaged, IME.
I am having a problem with this error when I try to run an app on my laptop.

It just does not run on my Laptop.
The error is "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0150004). Click on OK to terminate the application"
is there any perticular cause for this error

Boot in to Safe Mode and select Last Know Good Configuration
Turn your computer off through Shut Down.
Wait a few seconds, then turn it back on.
Once your computer's manufacturer logo (eg.'ACER') starts to show, start pressing the F8 key repeatedly.
Keep pressing it until the Windows Advanced Options Menu loads up.
Make sure 'Last Known Good Configuration' is selected, navigate to it by using the arrow keys.
Press enter, and your computer will start booting with the LKGC that worked.

In my experience the special disk is needed which is available only for ASP technician.
Therefore it?s necessary to contact the ASP in your country in order to reflash the BIOS.
In my opinion you shouldn?t not try any ?Crisis Recovery disks? which you fond in the net? this can lead to mobo damage?
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 moreMore replies
Dear all, Since the beginning I got troubles with charging - ( 94 % plugged in, not charging). The easiest solution was just remove the battery, but not for HP Omen. I removed battery and destroyed the rubber on the bottom. I had to open the laptop, because one morning I got the massegae that my laptop is overheated and fan does not work properly. Both fans works only during the lounch, when windows works only one fan was in operations, second one never starts again. Looking for the solution in the internet I have found that this can be because of BIOS is not updated. I pushed F2, checked the the system, everything is fine and then I installed only one version which I have found there.No massages regarding overheating any more, both Fans are working full power and very very loud. Temperature of processors is 30C. In my room 25C. I followed all instructions, but got massege BIOS update is blocked.I downloaded the most previous version, again BIOS update is blocked.Current version of bios is BIOS version F00 04Sep14. Can it be solved somehow?

Hello all, this is my first time posting here so please forgive any mistakes/oversights. I've just updated my Samsung laptop's system BIOS via their software update program, and my Nvidia GPU (GT 650m DDR3) no longer seems to work. The Nvidia control panel is still there, and it still gives me the option to select which programs use the GPU, but there is no GPU actitivity showing up. Also,I've tried playing Skyrim (which auto-detects the PC's graphics cards) , and the game no longer seems to detect the Nvidia GPU (just the Intel integrated graphics).
My laptop model is NP550PC7, with 6 gig of ram, and an i7 quad core CPU, and the OS is Window 7 Home Premium 64bit.
I've tried looking in the BIOS but I can't seem to find anything related to the GPU or display options. Any help or avice is much appreciated.
Have you updated your GPU with the latest drivers?
Please navigate to:
Start> Control panel> Swith to icon view> device manager.
Look under "Display Adapters"
Is the Nvidia GPU listed there? If so are there any yellow symbols etc?
I have a old Tecra 9100 with years of good service, and this is my first problem, but is a great one, after a forced reboot the screen shows a BIOS block 1 damaged message. I have tried to repair the BIOS upgrading to the last version I have found, the 1.6 one, but its a Windows version (to upgrade from a running Toshiba computer I think) and when I try to run it in another computer to generate a FDD and upgrade BIOS, I cant, beacuse a Toshiba common modules message.
Its there any BIOS diskette image-archive I can dowload to perform the BIOS upgrade in the BIOS?
Thanks in advance.
All you can find is stuff on Toshiba support page. I don't know where you live but try to contact nearest Toshiba authorized service provider.
They have access to Toshiba database and they can obtain all this for you. Make a call and ask for help. I am pretty sure they will help you to solve this BIOS issue.
HP software said there was a bios update and it ran through this one screen said it recommended backing up the bios in case of corruption and it created a partition.

Anyone know if removing the partition will solve it or if /i have likely lost everything on the C drive. Any help appreciated thanksMore replies
Made the huge mistake of updating BIOS. Had small MOBO usb prob, and for some reason thought a BIOS update would do something. Wasn't too worried because Gigabyte touts Dual BIOS pretty strong.
Anyway, tried updating BIOS, then system would not boot, so the Backup BIOS didn't kick in. btw, the MOBO is a Gigabyte GA-K8N Pro.
So I copied the backup bios to a floppy and used the floppy to fix the main bios. OK, now computer would boot, but would freeze up after the desktop icons appear. Actually would sometimes work for a few minutes, but always froze up.
Boots OK to safe mode, even to the point of getting online, so I downloaded the old bios from Gigabyte, put them on floppy and used that to update the main bios. Same result.
Also did a system restore from XP Pro Safe Mode (because XP wrongly states that this can be undone; didn't find out that System Restore done from safe mode cannot be undone until I tried to undo!).
My tech support (ABS Computer; they rule) thinks that the BIOS is now fine, that some windows files are corrupt and a re-install will fix problem and mobo is probably fine as well. I'll buy that.
anyone have any miracle suggestions before i re-install? Is a repair install worth a shot? Really not looking forward to re-installing all my software and putting all my data back where it belongs to get my email hist., bookmarks, etc. back.
thanks - I will now write the following 500 times: LEAVE THE BIOS ALONE! even with Dual BIOS

Hi, I saw the new BIOS version 1.25 dated ?14?.?09?.?2016 appearing on Lenovos support site. I did not check the version I was having on my system before downloading the "new BIOS", so I started the installer and the tool told me I already have this BIOS version. msinfo32.exe tells me I am having BIOS 1.25 dated 13.07.2016. So apparently the BIOS was released already some time ago and I already flashed it to 1.25. So whats the point of re-releasing the 1.25? If there are any changes of todays version compared to the 1.25 released some time ago, is it worth flashing? If yes, how can I do this if the tool tells me I am already having the latest version and it does not let me override my BIOS? Thanks and best regards,MartinMore replies

a friend gave me his HP DV6500 Notebook to fix it. He said it made an update and then for hours nothing happened. He shut it and started again.
I could see that it tried to recover 2 times. The second time it was successful but it somehow resetted or returned the Vista to a fresh install!!! His data was locked in a previous User account, I backed it up on a usb-stick with a linux live cd.
I can't make a reinstall because now a bluescreen always appears even when I boot from Vista DVD.
ntoskrnl.exe corrupt when try to boot vista in the normal way.
How can I fix that without being able to use the repair option of the DVD?
Sorry, the title of the thread is wrong. I figured out already that the BIOS version is for an Intel. So everything is ok with the BIOS actually.
Ok, I could fix it after following instructions from this page:
The Txf-log had to be removed and afterwards I was able to use the repair function of the Vista DVD again.

I have an M2A-VM motherboard and my system keeps freezing up, no input from keyboard or mouse, no ctl-alt-del, nothing. It freezes intermittently, but never goes more than 3 hours without freezing, sometimes freezes in a few seconds, with 5 ? 10 minutes being the average time it works before freezing. Seems to freeze more (often immediately) when I?m using the mouse than any other time, but it will freeze on it?s own, just idling, if you give it enough time.
I?ve read a few things including updating bios and downloading the latest motherboard drivers. My problem starts when I go to download the mobo drivers from this page:
ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support-
It lists 41 driver updates there for my motherboard:

I have the same board on another pc.
You only need to download and install only that which would make your setup current.
You really only need to update the bios if you will be moving up to a newer processor that is not currently supported by the current bios or if the newer bios fixes a known problem.
You need the latest motherboard chipset driver. (I would install this first if you haven't already)
You need the latest LAN driver.
The audio driver you can either download from Asus or from RealTek.
I have a HP 2000 Notebook PC that goes in a continue loop with a black screen. The operating system does not load. The fan works and the led power light is operational.

The BIOS upgrade did not recognize the usb drive and I was unable to load the update. I downloaded the most current UEFI firmware and want to know how to upload it.

I have, or had a laptop purchased 9 months ago, therefore under warranty. Yesterday the ThinkVantage System Update recommended a BIOS update. After the traditional recommendations about what should not shut down the computer, the laptop is reset and started with the update.
During execution, displayed on a screen command, a message "ERROR XXXX. Press any key to continue." After press the key the laptop was freezedy was completely blocked. After an hour without seeing response and no sign of life, I decided to turn it off to confirm the disaster. The laptop was dead.
The laptop began to beep and would not start. Before the panic generated by the situation, I searched the forums where I found several cases that refer to the same problem and the insinuation that makes LENOVO about the customer's responsibility to avoid recognizing the warranty.
I was not looking for a BIOS update, it was recommended by ThinkVantage System Update, the software executed it and damage the equipment.
Besides being a damage caused by the ThinkVantage System Update, the situation gets worse when the answer given by support insinuates that the customer turn off the computer, so it is a CID (Customer Induced Damage) and therefore the guarantee does not cover it. I do not understand how LENOVO may imply that the responsibility of the customer. Really disastrous.
In conclusion, if you are not needing to make a BIOS update, it is preferable to omit the BIOS update messages given to ThinkVantage System... Read more

Dell just saying it's a "possibility" the motherboard might need to be replace. No one can tell you that motherboard is definite "Fried" without first looking at the system.

I bought this HP Probook 455 G3 and it has just run out of warranty which I intend to renew very soon. I don't like 8.1 or 10 so I spent more than I wanted to and I bought a new Windows 7 lappy that is a business laptop. I always do the recommended updates that I receive by E mail but one I never do which is the Bios update. The last time I did a Bios update on this lappy it wouldn't fire up afterwards. Rang tech help and after going through some troubleshooting it went back for repair. It came back working and luckliy i didn't have many pictures on it.Started from scratch and haven't had a problem since. I am now scared to do the Bios update. And.... Beofre I bought this laptop I bought a Windows 8.1 from HP direct . Hardly use it but update virus protection as necassary and last week there was a Bios update to perform. I also took out another 2 years warranty on it. Same think happened. Last week in fact. Wouldn't fire up afterwards. Again Tech help tried to help but in the end after frequent crashes it went in for repair on Friday. Good job I took out the extra warranty... I am now down to 1 laptop which I do not want to fail on me. I don't seem to have much luck with the Bios updates... Advice please? Is the Bios absolutely essential?More replies

hi, i have been hitting my head for long to get the answer of this question... and got no sophisticated answer in my google search, hopefully u guys could help me out..
well, they ask for BIOS UPDATE, gather your bios version n brand name, go for appropriate site nd have update..?
but the question that arise in my mind..(being tech student and encounter this bootstrap loader numerous times) is
BIOS IS A "ROM" CHIP, and so we must only be able to read from it..
then how is it possible to write on it and update the BIOS and more over, in my college books i find.. if u want to update your bios then u have to change your entire chip or sometime even motherboard
hopefully i will find sufficient answer.. thanx for anyhelp

Hello, I have updated my HP Elite 8200 CMT from windows 7 to windows 10. In the HP driver download page, there is no BIOS update for windows 10. But I have noticed that there is BIOS update for Windows 7. The question is, may I use it on Windows 10 ? And in general, are BIOS updates OS dependant ?
Hi: You can pull the DOS based flash file folder out of the BIOS package, copy just the contents of the DOS flash folder to a USB flash drive formatted with the FAT file system. Plug the flash drive in a usb port, restart the PC, tap the ESC key to get the menu of options. Select the F10 System setup option to gain access to the BIOS. Select the File menu>Flash system ROM command. Select the USB flash drive. The PC will see the files on the flash drive. Follow the on screen prompts to update the BIOS. That way it makes no difference what operating system you are running. One very important note...I have read the installing the latest BIOS 2.29 causes issues with W10. There is a forum post regarding that... http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/HP-Compaq-8200-Elit...I am running v2.28 on my HP 8200 Elite CMT, and have no issues at all on W10.

CPU fan failed and PC would not boot except to "fan failure" message. Fan has been replaced, but now constantly getting blue screen error BSOD, which reads "WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR" and sometimes other errors. Windows tries to boot into recovery but BSODs again and again. What I've tried: 1) Reset BIOS to defaults. DONE - same behavior after reset to BIOS defaults. 2) Tried booting from USB drives (several) using Linux recovery tools (Kaspersky, Ubuntu Live, etc.). KERNEL PANIC, etc. 3) Downloaded BIOS update from HP and created BIOS update USB. Rebooted with USB key (I turned off secure boot, etc. to allow USB booting.) - NOTHING. I tried this both allowing BIOS to run untouched and by going into BIOS options (pressing ESC @ boot up) - no options anywhere to read/update BIOS. According to an HP Support doc, I tried updating the BIOS from w/in "HP PC Hardware Diagnostics UEFI". The version on this PC is version 188.8.131.52: I see no option to update UEFI (Flash BIOS). Options read as follows: System Information, System Tests, Component Tests, Test Logs, Language, Exit. What do I try next, please? BIOS: JA2 v80.35CPU: AMD A8-6500RAM: 8GB DDR3, single DIMM in slot 4. NOTE: System came w/ RAM in slot 4. Doesn't POST if RAM DIMM is in slot #1. Is this normal?More replies
Hey guys. I just bought a new PC for school and the HP Support Assistant program recommends an update to the BIOS. Now I know the update is available but I also know that you typically should only update if their is a problem as updating BIOS is risky if not done properly.Now since is a recommended update, I have already attempted the update and it has failed twice. I do not want to keep taking chances of messing up a brand new machine just for an update that may not even been necessary to begin with. What I would like to know, is what exactly does this update add/fix on this machine? I have already searched the Internet but have been unsuccessful in finding a description for this paticular update. If someone could please take a look at the attached screenshot and let me know what this update is for, I would be most appreciative. At least then I could make an informed decision on wether or not I'm going to attempt this update again. Thank you.More replies
I have an Optiplex 9010 AIO. This morning I was trying to update the BIOS of my system, from A10 to A13. During the update process it showed an error: "ME FW Update Failed: Internal error: FWU_Buffer " - please see the photo below. Although the update failed on the Management Engine part, it still boots up and running OK. I tried couple of times to update the BIOS, and each time I got the same error. I tried to flash the A12 and A11 BIOS as well, A12 gives same error, and A11 has the same Management Engine version hence no use.
Any help on this is very much appreciated!

I am trying to get my system to reconize my new 60gig IBM HDD. It will show 61 in the bios (with incorrect cylinders, heads ect) but only 8.4 after boot up. After searching this site (by the way is great) I have come to realize that I either need to update my bios or attemp to use a "overlay" program. It's all new to me but I have contacted Award Bios for an evaluation on wich update I need (still waiting back from them). I have been looking at EZ-Disc for $19 from there site and it look like it could be a fix also. My main question (s) are should I go with the update or EZ? Does Award charge for the updates? Is this actually a fix? I did a Belarc Advisor profile and come up with this- System Model (I'm not sure what this means) VIA Tech. VT82C692BX, Main Circ. Board 693-596-ITE8661.

Go to Solution.
If you use the Intel Xtreme Tuning utility you can adjust the multipliers but that is all. The CPU already runs way to hot (and throttles as a result) so overclocking it will only make it worse. I did the opposite and undervolted mine so not only does it run cooler but it doesn't throttle anymore so it actually runs faster then a stock one.9 more replies

The present Ver is 2403 and it was installed by MFG at Dec. 23, 2010.
Please advice how to download a newer version of Bios.
Do you have a specific reason to update your BIOS? Is something not working right?
Flashing a BIOS is something you should only do as a last resort and only if absolutely necessary. Doing it wrong, or if power is interrupted, can brick your motherboard.
I installed the new bios update for HP Pavilion p6-2100. System informationsays I still have 7.23 version, not 7.23A. Bios date is still 2012. The bios appeared to flash ok. Not sure why I appear to have the old bios.
Hi @gayle56 ,
I have brought your issue to the attention of an appropriate team within HP. They will likely request information from you in order to look up your case details or product serial number. Please look for a private message from an identified HP contact. Additionally, keep in mind not to publically post ( serial numbers and case details).
If you are unfamiliar with how the Forum's private message capability works, you can learn about that here.

I don't know why you want to update the bios if you have cleaned the fan.
Maybe accidentely you have loosen something in your motherboard, look for that and tighting it up.
On the other hand you say that you own two similar laptops, if the good one is working fine then see what the version of the bios is and act accordingly to the malfunctioning one.

I have a HP pavilion pc (WinXP) and I will update the Bios, but I havn`t done before; Can you tell me how I do it!
I think the more important question is why do you think this is needed? BIOS Updates are for specific purposes. You need to make sure that a BIOS update is required by the manufacturer of the product the BIOS update is targeted for. Updating BIOS without a purpose is not recommended. If in fact you do need a BIOS upgrade you should go to the site of the product that is causing the need and get their specific instructions. If it's Motherboard, go to HP, If it's Daughter Cards, go to the card manufacturers site. Updating BIOS when not required may cause serious operabilty issues.

Hi, i am trying to update my BIOS. I went to insyde website (thats the bios manufactor) but then no longer provide the end user support downloads or whatever... and next then i went to acer (my system brand) and they have a few BIOS updates but i do not know which one to choose... any help... what should i do
First, the BIOS should only be upgraded if there are applicable fixes or added support. Basically, "if it ain't broke don't fix it". A failed BIOS update on many systems and the motherboard is toast and will have to be replaced as many systems do not have a recovery feature for a failed/corrupted BIOS.
The PC vendor (Acer in this case) should be the ONLY source for any BIOS update.
As far as which update, the latest version should be the one to use. In most cases the latest version includes whatever updates there were in earlier versions, along with the current updates.

Hi guys! I have a dell optiplex GX1, and the latest bios update for it is ver.A10.

EXACTLY what model Dell? Why do you need a BIOS update?
How do I know if the BIOS update worked on my computer? I can't see if the update worked or not. What is the latest version of the BIOS for my computer? I downloaded the BIOS update from the HP Support Assistant on my computer. After downloading the new BIOS and then after the restart, it doesn't show whether or not the update was installed. There is no information on the update at all anymore. The BIOS update does not show in the "action log" in the HP Support Assistant, so it makes me think the update didn't work? My product number is P0A42AV. The current Bios information shows as :F.08-06/16/2016.

Updating the bios incorrectly can render the motherboard useless
Wasn't sure where to post this but my question is as follows. I noticed that a lot of motherboard sites say don't update the bios if your system is running fine. Wouldn't newer bios releases always be better than the one you have?

When I restarted my notebook today (10-Jun-2016) it displayed a message saying that the BIOS was being updated but could not proceed because the machine was not plugged in. I plugged it in and let it continue. Now my fingerprint scanner has stopped working again!... I had to re-load Win10 recently to get it back after a registry corruption and I don't want to have to re-load again so what can I do to get my fingerprint scanner back? Thanks.More replies
I found a new BIOS dated Oct 2016. When I downloaded the program and ran it, it notified me that it couldn't find pmxdll32e.dll. The screen to update the bios came up, but I cancelled it as I didn't know the implications of running without this dll. Has anyone had this problem? Thanks in advance SteveMore replies
Well i hope u can help me with my little problem.
Recently i had a problem with my motherboard, is an Intel Desktop Board D845WN all began when i tried to put a memory Kingston KVR 100X72C3/512IS, originally i had installed two Value Ram KVR 133X64C2/256 and one Apacer 512 UNB PCL133 CL3 since i put that memory I cant boot with my hard drive, the Bios dosent allow me to choose them to boot, some friends told me to update my Bios, but really dont want to do that, not alone, thats why am asking for your help so u can tell me what to do.
Updating the BIOS is a bit dangerous, but if you follow all the isntructions it is pretty safe.
First, I would try removing all the memory except one module of 256. Then reboot to see what happens.
For the BIOS, Go to intel and read this:
ore read the info release:
You will find the BIOS at
The BIOS is named:
P15 dated 05/29/2003
Intel lflash.BIOS.update [HV86AP15BI.EXE] or similar
Just click on the right where it says "download"
If your computer doesn't need it, it won't install.
It is best to copy it to a floppy disc then boot to the floppy to install it, unless the Intel instructions are different.
I have downloaded the correct BIOS update from Lenovo. I have followed the instructions they provided but I cannot update the BIOS. I run the application "o1wjy27usa.exe" with Administrator privileges, but nothing happens. I get a folder on my drive "C:\SWTOOLS\FLASH\O1WJY27USA" with various different files inside, but that's all what happens. In the instructions it states that once I've run "o1wjy27usa.exe" with Administrator privileges I should see a confirmation prompt "Proceed with BIOS update now?". Click "Yes" to continue, but I don't !Am I doing something wrong ? Is there something else I should be doing ?I hope someone can help/assist.Thanks.
