HP BIOS Update Stuck at "Verifying New Bios Image 100%"

Q: HP BIOS Update Stuck at "Verifying New Bios Image 100%"

I have a five-month old HP Compaq Presario Laptop, which has been working fairly decently (I've had a few virus scares, and my Norton quarrentined something a twenty days ago). On HP's advice, I just updated the BIOS on my laptop. It's currently stuck at Verifying New Bios Image, and it's at 100% - It's been stuck that way for a half-hour plus. Any advice? What should I do?

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 ...

My laptop has no problem before. Recently I try to install Windows XP. First attempt fail, so I change SATA at BIOS from AHCI to Compatible, success. However the partition that I want to install*Windows XP to is not available.*

So just to test I choose my Windows 7 partition. Since it want to format the partition, I cancel the installation. After restarting windows, it stuck at bios. I restart again and change SAT to AHCI. Restart, still stuck at bios. This time I cannot enter BIOS, recovery or change boot media. Assuming the boot sector has corrupt, will reseating the cmos battery will fix this *problem. Please help. Thanks in advance.*

A:Windows 7 Stuck At BIOS Cannot Enter BIOS or Change Boot Media

Somehow with guidance from Lenovo Community, I solved the problem.

For future reference:
1. Take out HDD, battery, plug off ac power.
2. Restart, change SATA Controller in BIOS to compatible, restart.
3. Check whether the SATA Controller is Compatible or AHCI. If Compatible, force shutdown laptop.
4. Put back HDD, boot with Windows 7 Recovery CD or Installation Disc.
5. Choose Autostartup Repair.
6. Restart.

SoI Put my computer in sleep mode and tucked it into my bag. As I get home and take it out I notice it's still on and REALLY hot. I opened it and I'm greeted by an "HP BIOS Update" screen (What.)It Reads:"The System BIOS is being recovered. The recovery will take several minutes to complete.""Do not shut down your computer during the process.""Writing new BIOS image""Block 293 / 2048""Progress 14%"And it has been stuck on 14% for several hours.I'm thinking of turning it off (by removing the battery if necessary), but I'm worried it might cause irreversible damage.Please help meThanks beforehand

I recently pruchased a T440p, and it seems to not want to recognize the USB 3.0 ports and has an issue with turning on sometimes while on battery power. I thought these might be motherboard issues, but I figured updating the BIOS before I try to replace the main board would be worth a shot. Those are probably topics for another discussion, but just wanted to give all relevant information. So I dowloaded the BIOS update .iso, hash verified the download, burned to to DVD and booted to it. It appeared to be going very well, until, after one restart, the computer just hung on the ThinkPad boot screen ("Press ENTER to..."). I will not enter BIOS setup if I hit F1, all I get is the flashing underscore. I can, however, press F10 to enter the diagnostics and run them. Have I "bricked" the device? What are my options from here?

About 4 months ago I spilled orange juice on my laptop and it messed up the motherboard. I recently ordered a brand new motherboard and new ram and it now seems to be working fine, but I went into hp support assistant and tried to update bios because when I booted it up it gave me a notification that I might need to, and it is stuck on installing. I should also note that when I have the laptop plugged in, it says "plugged in and not charging". I read somewhere on here that it needs to be plugged in for the BIOS to install. Could I have a battery problem? And if so could that be causing it to not install?

A:BIOS update stuck on installing

One issue at a time, lets sort out the BIOS issue and then check.To begin with, I hope you got the exact motherboard for the unit? If so, Somethimes a program, programming or settings might stop HPSA successfully installing BOIS, hence donwnload the BIOS and install:http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03430118 After the installaion, check for hardware functionality:http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03467259

I started getting the message "ME is in recovery mode" when booting. Followed these instructions to update the BIOS.
Now I've waited several hours and nothing is happening.
"Updating your system's firmware. Do not power down you system". Also "Flash progress" is at 0% and the message below states it's "Sending Intel(R) Management Engine FW Update".
I have win7pro running on the machine, if that bit of information helps.

Hi @JRMNY , Welcome to HP Forums! I have read you post and wanted to help. I understand that your laptop hangs at the BIOS update. Please try a hard reset to force the laptop shut down:Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.Remove the battery from the battery compartment.Press and hold the Power button for about 15 seconds to drain residual electrical charge from the capacitors that protect the memory.Insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook, but do not connect any of the peripheral devices.Press the Power button to turn on the computer.If the hard reset does not work, the only other way is to wait the battery dry. Thanks for being a part of the HP community. Please let me know if this helps resolve the issue by marking this post as "Accept as Solution". If you require further assistance let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help.

A:Bios update stuck (HP Support Assistant)

Hi, You're welcome  The flash would have occurred at boot, so as this didn't happen, your existing bios revision will not have been affected. My personal opinion would be to not update the bios unless the update corrects a problem you are experiencing or adds additional functionality that you require - if the machine is running Ok, then there's really no need to update. Note:  I see from your screenshot that your current bios revision is F.1A - there are 2 later revions listed for your notebook.  HP Bios updates are cumulative, so if you do wish to update, the latest version will contain all the fixes/enhancements offered by previous versions - the latest revision listed is Here. Regards, DP-K

My mum has a windows 8 Samsung DP700A3D and says she switched it on the other day and there was a message to update to windows 8.1 and she could not escape out of this message and had to accept the update. It then began updating and there was a percentage bar showing progress. She can't remember what percentage it was up to but it was taking a while so she left it updating. When she returned (no idea how long she left it) it was in the bios config screen main page.
She tried ESC (quit without saving) but after it went black and the samsung logo came up it then returned to Main page of bios. Also she tried F10 save & exit but again returned to bios. She has tried both theses using F keys and also arrow keys/enter. She swears she touched nothing else.
I have arrived at her house and unplugged a camera cable she had plugged in USB port and then restarted machine but again back at bios. I have checked the disc drive and that is empty. I have also tried removing the USB wifi keyboard & mouse and restarting machine but again back to bios. I have also unplugged power supply and restarted. Also tried F9 setup defaults and then exited but back to bios.
Can anyone help? Very frustrated.

Last week HP support assistant sent a message that my BIOS needed to be upgraded.  Since then, I have been in a continuous BIOS Update loop.  I have tried making a flashable usb drive.  I got that to work, but I used the previous BIOS version for my machine.  When the BIOS was writing, it got to 19% and sat awhile then zipped on to 100%.  When the machine restarted, I was still stuck in the bios loop.  Thinking that perhaps there was a problem with this version of BIOS---FROM THE HP SITE FOR MY SPECIFIC MACHINE, I tried to find the page with Bios update files, but have been unable to find it again.   Does anyone know the link to this page?  Whenever I go through the HP support site, I get nowhere.   I have also tried multiple Fn keys, but I always end up in the loop.  I removed the power supply, battery, and hard drive, but when I put it back together, back in the loop.   My machine is out of warranty.  I tried to start up from a windows 10 flash drive, but...the dreaded Bios loop. Please help.  If anyone has the link to the bios updates, that would be great!  Any other suggestions would be helpful, too. Anyone know how much HP charges for something like this?

Hello
I recently obtained a Dell Latitude E6430 without a hard drive. I installed an SSD and managed to get windows up and running but ran into problems.
I noticed that every time I enter the BIOS setup and exit the laptop will always fail to boot and I would have to re-seat a ram stick to turn on the laptop again or if I closed the laptop lid the laptop will turn off and once again I will have to re-seat the ram sticks for it to boot again.
I noticed that the laptop is running on an older BIOS version (A11). I tried updating to the latest version with various methods.
- I tried just running the executable
- Tried using the command prompt and using /forceit command
- Tried booting into a bootable USB into freeDOS and updating that way
I'm really running out of ideas and right now the laptop is completely unusable.

I am extremely upset because I think I have just ruined my laptop through trying to perform a BIOS update which LENOVO provided through the website.I had recently reset my computer to factory settings via the ONE KEY RECOVERY button. After basic setup and startup, I decided to install the BIOS update Windows 7 64 Bit for my PC. I downloaded the two files provided: public and private, and moved on to first click on the public file. This opened up another application with various options which the README file provided no information on.Anyway my computer began to restart itself and perform some operations to which it is now stuck on the BOOT MENU.Each time I turn on the POWER ON button, I am directed to the BOOT MENU, and I have no option to use my computer as normal.Please help me on this.

Trying to address a different problem, Gigabyte suggested that I update the BIOS on my GA-F2A88X-D3H mb from F1 to F3. In addition to not solving the problem, after I updated the image displayed on my monitor--Dell 2209 WA--doesn't fill the screen. Everything's there, but the image stops about 3.5" short of the right bezel.

Using AMD's Catalyst Control Center hasn't worked. I've read some posts about a similar--the same?--issue that suggest changing a setting in "My Flat Panel Display." But I see only "My VGA Display," with no option for over- or under-scanning.

The image does display fully on rebooting--I see the Gigabyte UltraDurable logo, and on entering BIOS instead of going into Windows 8.1 (64-bit).

Any thoughts?

Since first writing this, I've tried the monitor's menu and other buttons without success.

Is it worth getting a DVI-D to DVI-D cable to connect digitally, in place of the current VGA connection?

Does it signify that the monitor reports a screen resolution exceeding its supposed maximum of 1680 x 1050, namely, 1920 x 1080? In both Windows screen resolution and AMD CCC, I'm unable to set a resolution above 1680 x 1050, and setting lower resolutions doesn't help.

A:Verifying DMI pool, now bios wont start

Your HDD has failed. But there may be other hardware that has failed too. Verifying DMI Pool takes place as the computer is accessing the CD/DVD drives.
Shutdown the computer and unplug the HDD and restart the computer. If you get passed the DMI Pool then it's just the HDD that is causing the problem. If you can't go any further, one of the CD/DVD drives may be at fault too. Unplug each of these to see.
You can also remove the HDD from the computer and attach it via a USB Adapter, power it up and see if it spins up and down or if it stays spinning up.

Anyway, He said that it didn't need a bios update,even the Samsung website said this computer needed a bios update.

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.

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.

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.

A:Problems with Nvidia gpu post BIOS system BIOS update.

Hi,

Have you updated your GPU with the latest drivers?

http://www.geforce.co.uk/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?

Cheers

Dave

Hi,

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.

A:Tecra 9100 - BIOS block 1 damaged and how to update BIOS?

Hello

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.

Hey guys,

Having abit of a problem with my dads computer, first, some specs;
Code:
[B]Acer Aspire T180[/B]

Acer EM61SM/EM61PM (Foxconn MCP61SM-AM Board)
AMD Sempron 3200+ CPU
2GB Memory
40GB Hitatch Sata HDD
Windows 7 Professional - 64bit

This all came about after trying to flash the BIOS with a newer version, I got the error;

erase failure, maybe hardware protected
fwh rom is write protectedClick to expand...

Then when I rebooted the system to try and find some BIOS protection option after the BIOS had loaded and the acer screen etc had gone instead of booting windows it just comes up with the message;

Verifying DMI Pool Data..Click to expand...
I have read about and people have suggested trying to fix the boot records, by using a bootable floppy.

I have done this however the computer won't boot to anything, I have tried removing the CD and HDD and booting from floppy however it won't, it just shows the same message, Verifying DMI Pool Data.

There is nothing wrong with the HDD as I have just put it in my computer and am currently writing this thread using his HDD in my system.

I have tried booting from CD (I have a windows 7 disk) and it just came up with the same message, it seems it won't boot anything and past BIOS it just shows this message.
Someone, please enlighten me with a magic fix for this,

Thanks

Josh
P.S I have also tried cleaing the CMOS by removing the jumper and battery and rebooting
 

A:PC won't boot past BIOS - Verifying DMI Pool Data

Error: There is a long pause at “Detecting DMI Pool Data” or "Verifying DMI Pool Data".
Solutions that have worked for me:

The Desktop Management Interface (DMI) is a new method of managing computers in an enterprise. The main component of DMI is the Management Information Format Database, or MIFD (the DMI Pool Data). This database contains all the information about the computing system and its components.

At times, some systems may experience hang conditions after partitioning, formatting and initial boot up of a hard drive. The message, "Verifying DMI Pool Data" appears and the system hangs. This condition may continue after the drive has been removed.

1) Apply power to the computer.
2) Access the system BIOS.
3) Set the drive type as "None" or "Not Installed" and then load BIOS Defaults.
4) Also load "SETUP Defaults".
5) Save the BIOS changes and reboot the PC to a System Boot Diskette.
6) Shut down the PC after the memory count is displayed.
7) Reconnect the power and interface cables to the hard drive.
8) On startup now access the system BIOS and Auto-Detect the hard drive. Ensure that the LBA Mode option is enabled.
9) Save the BIOS changes and boot the PC with a System Diskette.
10) Partition and format the hard drive via the operating system and reboot the system. On boot-up, the screen should read:

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,Martin

Hi, I have the following problem on the new box I just build (specs below): after bios init, it freezes at "verifying DMI Pool data". This is on a new box, unformated HD.

Things I have checked/tried:
- When I unplug the HD, it does not freeze and I can succesfully boot on a CD to run memtest.
- Removed HD and tested the sata connectors on the motherboard with the CD/DVD burner: all OK.
- Tested the sata cable by exchange it with the one of the CD/DVD burner: OK.
- SATA settings in the bios are set to Native IDE
- Boot order is 1)Floopy 2)CD/DVD 3) HD

As this drive should suport hot plugging I tried to unplug it and boot on my Windows XP install cd, then plug it back in. The HD seems to have been recognized, and I formated a partition. The instalation copied some files on it, and then restarted. But I am again stuck at the same point after that.
If I redo the same operation the windows instalation recognizes that a partition has been created and formated, so it has writen somthing on the drive.

Any idea of what I can do?

Thanks in advance.

A:BIOS freezes at "verifying DMI pool data" - probably HDD issue

It seems like something in the BIOS doesn't like your drive. I'm not sure if making your SATA settings Native IDE causes any issue with hot swapping. I guess not if you managed to get Windows to recognize the drive.

The weird part here is that Windows Setup isn't supposed to recognize anything that isn't there to the BIOS. Is there by any chance another HDD you can try with that particular SATA cable and port?

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?

I've read in other places that you should unplug all usb devices, and I did, not no luck. I tried with just the keyboard and mouse in, just the key board in, I tried with nothing in but the power cable and monitor AND then I tried with the monitor unplugged listening to the machine to see if it stopped the whirring sound it makes when booting up. No luck. A lot of other people said they experienced this problem after somethig was wrong with their computer and they rebooted, but mine was fine. I just switched it off for the night and this morning it wouldn't turn on. I can't access any type of configuration menus from where I'm stuck, and I'm not that great with computers so I don't know how to reinstall the bios or anything.

If you can't Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS
then I would remove the HD from PC and insert in another to rescue files.

Without HD installed will it boot the Win7 disk? How about flash stick media written with the Win7 Home Premium x86 SP1 English Official ISO download by Windows 7 USB-DVD Download Tool ?

If so Wipe the hard drive using Diskpart Clean Command and Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

If none of this works then you may need to reflash the last BIOS if it will boot into CD or USB media. Research your PC's downloads to see how the BIOS updates are formatted. Are there any for bootable media? We have hardware experts here who can walk you through doing this as a last resort.

I just bought a GTX 750 ti OC (low profile) from gigabyte, and now if i plug it in, the PC doesn't load, it gets stuck at the mobo screen. Many posts ive seen have said to update the BIOS, but is it safe to do so? I have a GA-H61M-DS2H mobo. Sorry if this has been answered before. Also, if updating BIOS is a must, what bios do i need?
I have a 450watt PSU by c3 tech, 8 gb ram, and an i5 2320.

I have a Samsung DP700A3D All-In-One. It came preinstalled with Windows 8. I remember it being version 6.2 (?). I always seem to try things above and beyond my skill set (Current Computer Science student). I installed Ubuntu 13.04 64 bit alongside Windows 8 with no problems. I aloud the Ubuntu to do the partioning. It used Grub2 for bootloader. I wasn't happy with that wanting to use Windows Boot Manager. After changing this and reloading that, somehow the windows 8 partition did a recovery. I can now not boot anything. I'm currently on Ubuntu live CD. I can see the drives from here. There are partitions labeled SAMSUNG_REC, SAMSUNG_REC2, 487 GB Volume(Windows files inside), Windows RE tools, and 481 GB Volume(Ubuntu files inside). When I boot the machine, I get the Install Boot Media ?? comment at attempted start-up. When I was setting up the Ubuntu alongside Windows I could access BIOS(?) with an F2 press at initial flash screen. Now I cannot. I can do nothing but run the Ubuntu Live CD. I don't want to try Fresh install of Ubuntu because there are files on Ubuntu partition because there are files that are too large for me to back-up else where that are very important. I KNOW .... BACK-UP BACK-UP BACK-UP!! It however is too late for that.... PLEASE HELP!!

I stepped away for a half hour. When I came back & moved my mouse aroud to wake up my monitor, the comp rebooted. Since then, I've been stuck in a loop between my motherboard's BIOS & a Jmicron BIOS.

I can enter BIOS (where everything appears to be fine & everything is set to optimized defaults) but I cannot boot an OS. I've tried my hard drive, a flashdrive & a DVD. The BIOS screens just keep looping & Win 8 never tries to start up from any source. I've shut everything down & let the comp sit. Came back & I get the same thing.

F8 doesn't give me an option to start in safe - it just lets me choose a boot device.

EDIT: Pulled my PCI-E card that was using Jmicron. Now I can boot from DVD.

I have a Gateway Desktop and its stuck on the Bios screen. It will not let me get past it. My grandmother downloaded a free Windows 10 upgrade and then this happened. I was later told that our version of Windows 8 is not compatible with Windows 10 and that I would need to purchase a recovery disk. I bought the disk and I changed the boot options to CD/DVD startup and inserted the disc and still nothing. Just the BIOS screen still. I'm totally frustrated with it at this point and have no idea how to get my operating system back. Please help me reset my computer to the factory settings. PLEASE!!!

In relation to the free upgrade to 10 it would not have been offered via Windows updates unless the computer was compatible as one of the pre-offering procedures is a check on your computer for compatibility

4. 8 itself is not eligible - it requires 8.1

5. Do you mean the BIOS/UEFI screen or do you mean the post screen - what is on the screen

6. If the Gateway came with Windows 8 installed I can more than likely get you 8.1 installed and working. What I cannot guarantee is to ensure that you still have your personal data and programs. However we will know that when you reply and we examine the situation further

A:Bios are stuck on any click

When your system boots up----

Right click your mouse on the desktop....
Scroll down to Screen resolution select and open....
If you can-Scroll down to 800x600 resolution and select.
Your screen will flicker and ask if you want this resolution select yes....
Restart your machine---continue to tap DEL until you access your BIOS....
By experience when I enter my BIOS it seems to favor 800x600 resolution unfortunately this does not apply too all BIOS,s...
If you can successfully access your BIOS using 800x600 resolution you can adjust and save your desired settings within BIOS..
Restart your machine_ Right click your mouse over desktop- Scroll down to Screen resolution and return the resolution back to your desired level...

Give it a go- Please let me know how you got on

This is frustrating. Extremely frustrating.

I have a pretty new computer. Just a few months old. It is supposed to be a good one.

Quad core i7 processor
lots of memory and extras

This computer also has the 64 bit edition of Windows 8 installed on it. Windows 8 is driving me up the wall!!! I have had numerous problems with it since day 1.

As recently as a few days ago, my system was running reasonably okay. Then I downloaded a driver for my network card from the dell.com website. From that point on, I cannot get my computer to boot up properly. I have turned my computer off and on multiple times in hopes that it would correct whatever is wrong.

When I first turn my PC on, it will stay stuck at the Dell logo window for a while.

Sometimes it will make it past that and it will give me an error message that says:

"error sending end of post message to ME, system HALT!"

Also, I sometimes get a message which says:

"the last USB device you connected to the computer malfunctioned, and Windows did not recognize it.

Try reconnecting the device. If windows still does not recognize it, your device may not be working properly."

This is insanity. I have NOT connected any new USB devices to my computer.

Hello!

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad X60 laptop with Win7 32-bit Ultimate and an SSD (I know, I know, just go with it. I'm building a desktop soon). I could list the specs, but that's useless for this problem (I'd think).

At times (not always), when either resuming from hibernate or booting up from a shut down, the computer generally freezes at the point right after the BIOS screen. So it's just a black screen. This is before the window that says "starting up" (literally a window... the Windows logo). Whenever it freezes, it NEVER goes to the boot screen of Windows. I'm assuming this is an error with the hard drive, since the OS is on the SSD and the boot screen is from the mobo. However, this only started happening after a rather heavy fall to the ground that cracked many parts of the plastic shell on the computer. It still works occasionally when I can get it to boot up (nothing different when it boots up... same settings and everything. Spontaneous).

I have tried:

1) Cold reboot
2) Removing battery
3) Going off only battery
4) Unplugging EVERYTHING from the computer

I have not tried chkdsk yet. Is it necessary? Also, would there be a log somewhere of what happened? It never booted into Windows.

Thanks!

This is my first post, so sorry for any mistakes. I have an old MSI 975x Platinum motherboard and my current video card (the one that is plugged in now so I can get online for help) is a Geforce 8500 GT. I know, ancient. Anyways, I am trying to upgrade to a Geforce 210 since my ol' 8500 bit the dust a couple days and while I can strangely still get video on it, it can't do anything more serious than say browsing the web. I get video lag while scrolling down the page as I type this out, but that isn't the issue. Anyways, the problem arises when I put in my new video card, start up the computer and it gets stuck at the motherboard loading screen (it is a logo MSI uses of a spaceship or something during), I am not sure if it even does POST. It simply hangs there and never finished loading. I was at a general computer store a few hours ago to pick up a new video card and almost everything there uses PCI Express 2.0. I went to a computer kiosk there to do a general search because I knew I had PCI Express 1.0a on my motherboard, and for all intents and purposes the few websites I checked agreed that they were backwards compatible. Mostly, I am wondering if my card truly is compatible with 1.0a PCI-E, and if so what can I do to get the card working? It is brand new so I suppose I could exchange it for something else if need be. Thanks for your time. tl;dr - Motherboard is PCI-E 1.0a. Video card is PCI-E 2.0. Computer hangs at BIOS/POST. Compatibility issues??

Help Installing Drivers:

Q: After I click Agree and Download, should I select Run or Save?
A: You can select either depending on your preference. If you want to save the driver for use at a later time or on a different PC then you should select Save. If you want to download and start installing immediately then you can select Run.

Q: Do I need to uninstall my older driver first?
A: No. It used to be the case that an uninstall was first required. Today the recommended method is to overinstall the newer driver on top of your older driver. This will allow you to maintain any current NVIDIA Control Panel settings or profiles.

Hello, I just updated to the latest BIOS (1.12) using the bootable CD (r06uj38d.iso).The update itself seems to have worked out fine, most notably a white "Lenovo" on a red rectangle is displayed now when the system is powered on.However, since the update the system seems very slow, not just in the OS (Fedora 24) but well before booting, even in the BIOS and the boot medium chooser menus. While on AC power, I just had a look at the CPU frequency:$ sudo cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy{0,1,2,3}/cpuinfo_cur_freq
399937
399937

400000
400000
400000
400000 As AC power is supplied, it should be closer to its maximal frequency:$ sudo cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy{0,1,2,3}/cpuinfo_max_freq
2800000
2800000

Welcome to the forum, Nunchez.

Obviously you're dual booting. You may have damaged the volume boot record. I don't mean to add insult to injury, for I know you may be frustrated, but using 3rd party programs for any OS tweeking or disk management is most often destructive. I know there are some good programs out there and use a few myself, but one must be careful with these.

Hi guys,

I'm trying to fix a friend's computer. She called me over and her HP Pavilion was on HP's BIOS-ish blue screen. The options were to enter Setup, etc. She said she couldn't do anything, meaning get past that screen, so I figured the keyboard (PS/2) was dead. I disconnected and reconnected the keyboard, but nothing happened. I went home and brought my keyboard (also PS/2) over, which also didn't work. I didn't want to open up the chassis without knowing if I definitely have to, as I've never come across this problem before.

My main guess is that I need to change the position of one of the jumpers or maybe the battery. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hello fellow geeks,

Ive have come across a very peculiar dilemma. One day after a system update, all my USB input devices stopped working leaving me stuck at the Win 7 login screen. After some basic troubleshooting I decided to reset BIOS with system defaults. No help there. So instead i decided to do a hardware reset of the bios by flipping the switch/jumper on the motherboard. Still none of the USB ports are working. When I boot the computer it is doing an initial RAM check saying that the configuration has changed and politely asks me to press F1 to save settings or press F10 to setup BIOS. BUT, since my keyboard is not working I cannot proceed.

Bought a USB --> PS/2 converter to see if my keyboard would respond on that port... the answer is noooo.

So, would be ever grateful if someone has got a solution for this. Or at least someone can point me in the right direction. Otherwise I might just throw it all out the window. Pretty fed up with this atm.

Thanks in advance!

I just came back from a 10 day vacation, and when I tried turning on my desktop for the first time upon returning, it gets stuck on the BIOS screen for about a minute, then the screen goes black. I can't use any of the BIOS functions. The HDD activity light blinks a couple times right before it hits the BIOS, then stops completely. I was having no problems whatsoever before leaving for my trip.

I do have two kittens at my house who are all over everything, and according to my friend who was looking after them, they did turn on my PC a few times while climbing over it. I did make most of the cables inaccessible, and aside from turning it on and walking on my keyboard, I doubt that they were able to do anything really harmful.

What I've tried so far:
-Un-plugged everything from computer, tried to boot with just monitor and kb/m connected
-Cleared the CMOS on the mobo
-Re-Seated the RAM
-Cleaned out the case thoroughly, made sure everything was properly connected

Neither Delete, or any of the function keys work in the BIOS screen. I'm thinking that this may be a hardware problem, either the motherboard has pooped out, or something else. I really don't know....

Check my system specs for the hardware details.

Any suggestions?

This is frustrating. Extremely frustrating.

I have a pretty new computer. Just a few months old. It is supposed to be a good one.

Dell XPS 8500
Quad core i7 processor
lots of memory and extras

This computer also has the 64 bit edition of Windows 8 installed on it. Windows 8 is driving me up the wall!!! I have had numerous problems with it since day 1.

As recently as a few days ago, my system was running reasonably okay. Then I downloaded a driver for my network card from the dell.com website. From that point on, I cannot get my computer to boot up properly. I have turned my computer off and on multiple times in hopes that it would correct whatever is wrong.

When I first turn my PC on, it will stay stuck at the Dell logo window for a while.

Sometimes it will make it past that and it will give me an error message that says:

"error sending end of post message to ME, system HALT!"

Also, I sometimes get a message which says:

"the last USB device you connected to the computer malfunctioned, and Windows did not recognize it.

Try reconnecting the device. If windows still does not recognize it, your device may not be working properly."

This is insanity. I have NOT connected any new USB devices to my computer.

I do not know what to do. I figured that the easiest thing might be to try simply reinstalling Windows 8 from scratch. So I inserted my Windows 8 reinstall disk that Dell sent me when I bought this thing. However, my computer will not boot from ... Read more

A:My Windows 8 PC will not boot up at all..... stuck on BIOS

You can restore to just before you downloaded the driver using a Windows 8 Install Disk. Boot to the Install disk, and go into the Utilities, choose "System Restore" and it should find any restore points from right before that happened. If you cannot get into Windows 8 at all, this will be the only way to get around this.

So been trying to figure this out for the last week.Basically my Notebook when through a HP BIOS update about 2 weeks ago and never turned back on after it.After resetting the notebook about 4 hours later, it kept coming up with fault 0xc000098 which was easy enough to search; tried to update the bios manually then it started coming up with 0xc000034.So downloaded the media creation tool from Microsoft to try and reboot my operating system and now it comes up with "selected boot image did not authenticate press enter to continue"Naturally I've checked the forum for help, I've tried reinstalling the BIOS which is currently F.00, tried disabling the secure boot, which again doesn't work. Anyone else have any more ideas??

My computer that i have owned for over a year now has been working perfectly fine until tonight both of my monitors froze, yet i was still able to hear my friends talking to me over a voice platform. I thought it was best to restart my computer in hopes to fix my frozen screens. Unfortunately now i am unable to go back to my Windows to do anything as i am stuck on the UEFI BIOS Utility - EZ Mode. This screen normally only appears after my power surge protectors go off, and once i have and exit with f10 it would go back to windows, but not this time. Choosing to save and exit ends up taking me right back the BIOS screen. I have re-arranged the Boot Priority and non of them have worked. I'm clueless to what i am suppose to do.
I am running windows 8.1.

A:UEFI BIOS Utility stuck in a loop

As a first step check the motherboard manual to see how to reset the BIOS to default settings or, remove the motherboard battery and replace after waiting for 30 seconds.
