Solved: HP DV6500 Notebook wrong BIOS update by HP update function?

Question: Solved: HP DV6500 Notebook wrong BIOS update by HP update function?

Hello,

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.

Preferred Solution: Solved: HP DV6500 Notebook wrong BIOS update by HP update function?

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.)

Answer: Solved: HP DV6500 Notebook wrong BIOS update by HP update function?

Ok, I could fix it after following instructions from this page:

http://www.delmartian.com/nullpoint...0C1F5-0xC1F5-C1F5-BSOD-CLFS.SYS-KB946084.html

The Txf-log had to be removed and afterwards I was able to use the repair function of the Vista DVD again.

I got Satellite L300 notebook and I want to update it's BIOS (current v1.50), so I've downloaded bios update v1.60-WIN and when I run extracted PS10160M.exe file - I get a message that "That BIOS is not for your notebook PC".

What I'm I doing wrong?

ps: that BIOS update was automatically suggested after registration on Toshiba website via serial number.


UPD: seems like autosuggestion fail: Manual search shows that 1.60-win bios update not suitable for Satellite L300 PSLBCE model. :-(

Answer:Satellite L300 BIOS update problem: "That BIOS is not for your notebook PC"

Hi

You used wrong BIOS!!!!!

The Toshiba European driver page provides an BIOS for this Satellite L300 PSLBCE series and the latest BIOS at this time is 1.50!!!!

At this time your notebook uses the latest BIOS!!!

Hi All,
I tried flashing my BIOS through windows as recommended on my Laptop Manufacturer (Toshiba) website. I guess the process went wrong as after 2 hours still the message "Do not interrupt" was getting displayed. I had to force power off my PC. Now it is not booting up.
The Laptio is Toshiba SA50-114, Satellite series.Model No - PSA50E

I have tried suggestions in following link
http://askiris.toshiba.com/ToshibaSu...200%2035586212
However, this did not work.

However, I don't have the recovery disk tool and BIOS/ROM file. Have tried searching on internet, but with no results.

Can someone please help me with
1. How can I perform the BIOS update to get my PC running back.

2. Point me to links where I can find the files in the above link.

Many Thanks in advance.
Best Regards,
Parag

Answer:Satellite A50 doesn't function after BIOS update

> 1. How can I perform the BIOS update to get my PC running back.
Not possible if your BIOS ROM module was wrong flashed.
If you are a lucky man then only the ROM module must be flashed again using an special procedure. But this can be done only by an authorized service provider in your country.

> 2. Point me to links where I can find the files in the above link.
There is no link! You will have to ask the ASP for the help.

if the flasher let you revert to a previous version, yes, try it.(not always the best thing to do, reverting to a previous BIOS version) if not and your system is stable, i would leave it as it is.

Hi, i was wondering if anyone had any advice.

Last night i updated my bios (ASUS M2N4-SLI), unfortunately during the update the power went off in the house when i boot now nothing happens, the keyboard and mouse are not even booting. There is power to the motherboard but i can?t get a boot screen or anything, is there any way that i can sort this out?

many thanks

Answer:BIOS update went wrong, need help please

Unfortunately there is little you can do if the flashing has failed. If the motherboard does not POST, you are most-likely looking at a paperweight. There may be a bit of hope if your mainboard has a chip socket (meaning you can physically pull the BIOS chip) but most are soldered right to the PCB. If you can remove the BIOS chip, you can send it to BIOSMAN where they will replace it and reflash the corrupt chip. I've used them before, it's a very good service.

As far as soldered goes, I'm afraid that's tough luck. Replace the motherboard.

Answer:something wrong after bios update

Hi ironman9,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
If you can still enter the F2 for BIOS or F12 for the boot menu, It means that the options are still active and I think this is not a cause for Concern.
 
I have checked most of the G580 online and all are not showing these message/prompt anymore.
Check here
I think this is how the recent BIOS is configured.
 
I tried Checking the BIOS of the G580 and I see no settings to enable this back.
 
Just make sure that the Options are still responsive,
Turn OFF your computer and Turn it Back ON and start tapping F2 or F12.
 
Regards
Solid Cruver

Well I've seriously stuffed up, I'll give you the long story so you get all the information

Well after I installed my 8800GT, I began having stuttering problems with a game, ut2004. Others had the problem and most say its a driver issue and will be fixed in the future, someone wrote to nvidia support and they suggested updating bios, chipset and getting a patch for the game, so I updated the chipset, 945p, easy then I went to update the bios, after downloading bios 3.7, a command prompt came up with lots of settings and commands and warnings, so I decided I'd play it safe and just do the msi live update. So I installed the msi update and its first update was to update my bios, as it finished it restarted my computer, everything seemed fine until my computer wouldn't go past the original POST page, the one with the motherboard logo on it. No beeps sounded and pressing tab or del opened a black page that says

AMIBIOS (C) 2005 American Megatrends, Inc

The page also has a live update symbol on the top right corner.

I have a hunch that the live update fed me the wrong bios, and thats why the computer won't boot. I dont have a floppy and putting my windows or motherboard cd in doesnt do a thing. Restarting doesnt and turning off and on doesnt. I have limited my options ... Read more

Hi

I hope this is posted in the right place.

I think I have messed up my computer big time and need some advice.

I was trying to update the BIOS on my Medion 8838 because I wanted to use more than 4GB of ram.

I downloaded the BIOS update from the Medion website booted the computer into DOS and applied the update.

Everything seemed to run smoothly with the update and when it finished my computer rebooted but just kept on turning on for about 2 seconds and then turning off again like it is stuck in a loop.

Now whenever I plug in the computer this loop of turning on and off starts again.

I have tried resetting the CMOS but to no avail.

I am seeking advice on what I can do.

Is this fixable?
Do I need a new motherboard?
Is my computer dead?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi,There has been a long thread on XP restarting on its own and seems it is affecting alot of people.For me it occurs when using 3D applications.I have tried just about everything to cure this and one thing i haven't done is a BIOS update.I read today in an earlier thread that this has done the trick for somebody with a similar problem although it was a different Mobo.My PC is under warrantee so i have rung them and they told me to download a prgram called "Burnin", it tests your hardare for faults and when using the latest version of the Radeon 9000 pro driver the test failed on 2D graphics unable to "draw shape". When i use a much earlier driver (could be the first one) the test passes and the restarts are very seldom apart from a message saying "the program has to close" which dont seem to be as drastic and not nearly as often.I mentioned all this to put you in the picture a bit.Final point is, i told Mesh what the results of the test were and the nature of the errors and he came back after a minute and confidently said "the problem is to do with either two things, the ram might be faulty or the Graphics card could be faulty and i would have to send the machine in to them". That is one thing i really wanted to avoid, he said i should have it back within 3 weeks but have heard that before!

Luckily most files were backed-up to another HDD several weeks ago, but as I wasn't expecting this, I have lost plenty.
Any ideas how to recover, my files and previous windows setup?
Bearing in mind that I don't believe the HDD was wiped as it all happened very quickly.
 

Answer:BIOS update gone wrong

That does not sound like a bios issue. It sounds like something went wrong with Windows 7, or the drive is going bad.

Download Xubuntu 14.04 and burn the .iso to a DVD. Then run as a LiveDVD, to see if it shows with gparted, the Windows partitions, and files in them.

A few days ago i found an update for my BIOS. It was installing without any problems, but around halfway of the intallation, a power surge caused my computer to shutdown. When the computer booted back up I got this message. This is all I get, I can't access the BIOS or anything pass this
I tried removing the CMOS battery, I also tried to cross the jumpers, all with no luck. This only leads me to believe the BIOS itself is corrupted. I heard there is a way to fix the BIOS by using something called flashing. Could someone show me how to do this?
 

Answer:Bios update gone wrong

Flashing your BIOS is what you where doing. Depending on your system you may be able to use the Boot CD to restore the BIOS to it's factory default. If your PC is older then you will need to contact the manufacture (or a local non big box repair shop) and get a new BIOS ROM chip.

hello there recently i was working on a computer as a favor for someone. He told me he couldn't get on the internet and had some malware so i cleaned out the malware and started to update his drivers from the Hp website by the way it is a Hp pavilion a6412p with windows 7 32 bit. While updating the drivers i noticed an update for bios i preceded to download and install it after being prompted to restart i couldn't get back onto windows ever time the loading screen comes up for windows 7 it just restarts. So i tried to load it in safe mode but the same thing happens were it just restarts and i even tried to load it in last good known configuration but that doesn't seem to work. usually i would just reformat the disk but he runs his business from this computer so that is out of the question and i forgot to make a backup since i thought this was gonna be an easy job so i messed up big time. Any help would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Bios Update went wrong

Well, at least you did not brick the computer because it looks like you can start loading Windows. Can you access BIOS at startup? If you can, the BIOS update probably worked.

You can download the Windows Recovery Disk and burn the iso with something like Imgburn. Boot the CD and try to do a Startup Repair.

I bought a new dv7t quad edition HP laptop recently. I moved the 750gb 7200rpm hard drive to the secondary slot and was using a Crucial 256gb solid state drive as the boot drive. The HP help center told me that I needed a BIOS update, so I let it do its thing, and soon I had a laptop that would show nothing but a blank screen. I called HP and they said it was the hard drive, so I switched them and I have a working computer again. However, I need to be able to switch back to the solid state drive.How do I get rid of whatever the BIOS update did to the hard drive?If you need me to post more info about the laptop, I can.Thank you for your time.

Answer:Bios update gone wrong

I made the leap forward to SSD with 2 laptops and 1 desktop. I had to prep my one OCZ Agility 90GB prior to OS installation, but my system would boot up past the post diagnostics with just an error of No OS Found. The Toshiba System Restore utility would boot and come up with No Hard Drives Detected  as for it was having a hard time finding the SSD and only option was to exit the system restore.So your not getting a successful post ( HP Logo or detailed boot stats )?I'd perform the flash to the BIOS with the original hard drive installed. If the BIOS is already at the version you are trying to flash it to, it wont hurt the computer and it will probably show a screen that shows existing BIOS Flash Version and the Flash version to be applied. If they both match you can exit the flash process as for you are already at the latest version.*The prep that I had to perform to my SSD was that I had to connect it through a SATA to USB cable and make it act as an external hard drive. I then created a NTFS partition on it and then formatted it using Windows 7, which my Laptops OS is, and then I was then able to install the SSD to my laptop, and then boot off of my USB stick to install the OS to the SSD using the Toshiba System Restore Utility that I made before yanking the original hard drive. The restore utility now was able to find the SSD and install properly. This installation process deletes the partition I made when prepping the drive as for Windows 7 wants its default st...

Hello,This is my first time on a forum and I have no idea what "location" to select for this type of issue.  I will try to make this short and simple.  There were a bunch of updates from HP, one of which was a Bios update.  A bunch of others had issues updating.  Ever since then, my wifi keeps dropping, when my service and all other devices are fine.  I try to restart and it hangs there for hours, so I have to hold the power button to shut it off and turn it back on.  When I close my notebook, it will not go to sleep, hibernate or anything I set it to.  Instead it shuts the screen off, hard drive sounds as if it is still running and the computer heats up and power button light stays on.  Again, I have to hold the power button do shut it off.  I have a Windows 10 HP 14 Pavillion was advertised as windows 10 ready, so I don't think it is that since I did that update in July and this just started happening after the bios update.  Is anyone else having the same issues?  Any suggestions to anyone who may have resolved them?  

Answer:bios update gone wrong

 You could try a BIOS rollback to previous version.  1-Immediately after powering on start tapping the Esc key.2-When the menu appears, tap F2 for System Diagnostics.3-In the list of items will be BIOS or Firmware Management.Use the arrow key to move down & highlight it.Press Enter key.4-You should now have a Rollback BIOS option.Use arrow key again to highlight and press Enter key.

Hi there, I've been using my thinkpad Edge (not sure about model number, Serial is 0301-CTO) 15" core i5 and I've been having trouble with the function keys since last BIOS update. I know for sure this is not a windows issue since I have installed linux too, and the combination of function keys to use multimedia controls, for example, stopped working in both windows 7 and OpenSuSE Linux. The wierd thing is that after the update the keys worked for a while and then stopped working and suddenly the other day they worked again but after a reboot they stopped working. Do you know if there is any chance to downgrade the BIOS so I can have this functionality back? I've been reading a lot of threads here about this same problem and most people comment that one should update the BIOS but I already did that and had no luck, I have BIOS version 2.01/2.20 Any advice on this would be great.

I have had a Yoga for several weeks now and find it to be a great machine. One feature that I usually always look for in a laptop is the ability to use the function (Fn) key with the arrow (direction) keys. Some manufacturers assign volume or brightness to the arrow function keys, however, my preference is to use them for advanced cursor management in which the Home (left), End (right), Page Up (up), and Page Down (down) keys are mapped.
 
The Yoga currently has no alternate function key capabilities assigned to the arrow keys. So I wonder what the possibility of these being added as a future driver/bios update might be..?
 
(I find that many other manufacturers have been adopting such a function key layout with their laptops.)
 
Link to picture
 
In my opinion, volume and brightness belong as functions of the F1-F12 keys, which is the case for the Yoga. Also, there is an actual dedicated volume button on the left side, so volume is definitely covered.
 
Additionally, I was pleased to find an existing setting in the Bios that allows the F1-F12 keys to be toggled for use as standard "F" keys. As a software developer, I regularly use these keys for debugging (as well as for many other application specific shortcuts). So I do commend the designers for implementing this as a user preference in the Bios. (Given this precedent, perhaps the same option could be added for arrow key function behavio... Read more

Answer:Keyboard Function Keys - Enhance via Bios or Driver Update?

I think that the existence of real Home/End/PageUp/PageDown keys is why they didn't bind those functions to the arrow keys (as with the keyboard examples in your picture).  I have used the nifty SharpKeys utility with such keyboards on my older laptops to custom map those functions to specific function keys, so perhaps it will allow you to map Fn-Up as you wish on the Yoga: http://www.randyrants.com/sharpkeys/

Hi....I hope I'm in the right place. Please forgive my being so technologically "handicapped" and for this being such a long one. I'm trying to find out if I need to update my BIOS or not. All of this started because, for no apparent reason, my touch screen stopped working, sometimes dots come/go, popping up all over my screen beginning at startup while the internet, if I go there during this time, appears to take on a life of its own. This is because the mouse pointer does it's own thing, clicking where ever it wants.  Also during these "fits", the Windows icon in the taskbar on my desktop disappears and I have to just hold down on the power button to shut down. (Is that called a "hard reboot"?).Does any of this even pertain to my needing a BIOS update?According to the information I provided, "Software and driver results" from the HP Customer Support website indicated that there is a BIOS update," F.19 Rev.A"for my particular product and model number. According to my System Information, I currently have "Insyde F.18". When I checked on the HP Support Assistant that came with my notebook however, and it says I only need one update which is for the "HP Wireless Button Driver", whatever THAT is.I'm so confused about so much and I hope this makes sense to whomever can help me.  Thank you, in advance, for any advice you can give.Julie

Answer:Notebook not booting up after BIOS update

If the notebook turns on, displays nothing, gives no beeps and is not responsive to the power switch when turning off, then your BIOS is probably ruined.Your best course of action is to contact Sony and send the notebook back for repair. They will probably want to change the motherboard. If the notebook is still under warranty then they will probably not charge you anything (don't know about postage depends on Sony).If your system is just not booting to an OS then I agree with this guy: http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/17126-Sony-VAIO-CS17G-BIOS-Recovery-Help!?p=248149#post248149 [Venu] (not yourself obviously).I can't seem to find your notebook on Sony's website what country did you buy the notebook in?

I have been recommended to do a BIOS update on the above machine. I think the existing version is 1.30 and the correct replacement is 1.70 (I think this refers to PSA33E: [http://support.toshiba-tro.de/tools/eula/info_eng2.asp]).

The original BIOS has a password. Would like to know what happens if this process goes wrong. Will my system be inoperable or is there a backup procedure pre-install?

The additional problem with this is that the fan is going on every minute or so. The heatsink looks clean, but maybe new thermal grease should be applied to the cpu.

In worst case if the update goes wrong your computer doesn?t boot anymore. That means you can only see a black screen and you can nothing. In this case you would need professional help from an authorized service provider, they can reflash the ROM module or exchange it.

But here some important points before you start the update:
-Make sure that you are logged in as administrator
-Disable your AntiVirus and Firewall
-Disconnect from Internet
-Close all running programs

> The additional problem with this is that the fan is going on every minute or so. The heatsink looks clean, but maybe new thermal grease should be applied to the cpu.
Yes, maybe the thermal grease must be renewed if you have already cleaned your notebook. After this everything should work normally.

I hoping someone can direct me to a fix for this issue.  Seems to me I can't be the only one having this particular issue. I downloaded the windows bios update utility and proceeded to update the BIOS.  The utility ran for 10 minutes and it just hung there.  Eventually I ended up rebooted the computer and once I did that the computer would not start again. One long been and two short beeps and this indicates a system board failure.  Here is what I did; 1. Updated bios in windows2. Computer would not start3. Unplugged power and removed battery4. Held power for multiple 30 seconds5. Disconnected battery under the keyboard (waited two hours before trying again) Any advice is very much appreciated. Shawn.

I've been running an Athlon 64 FX-51 w/ SK8N mobo for about a year and today when I tried to update the BIOS, I couldn't get windows to load. I reverted to the old BIOS using a floppy disk which flashed fine, but when I restarted, I got a blue screen of death which stated "video driver failed to initialize." Same problem in Safe mode.

Do you have a video card or onboard video or both?

Make sure you have it configured correctly in your bios.

My guess is that it reverted to default settings.

hi --

i'm trying to fix my parents' pc (a gateway 507gr) which has been really unstable & unreliable for a few months. windows wouldn't boot properly, windows reinstalls wouldn't work. it'd boot into the bios ok, but that was about it.

in desperation yesterday, i decided to upgrade the bios, hoping to have a good foundation for reinstalling other stuff. i downloaded the files from intel's site (the board's a d915gag, with a p4 processor with hyperthreading), and did exactly what it said. now things are far worse than before.

intel gave several sets of directions for flashing the bios. the least invasive was to make a cd with this bootable .iso file, put it in the cd drive of the target pc, and boot it up. it did boot under that scenario, but instead of anything resembling the screenshots they showed in the instructions, it said something about the old bios id number, the new bios having a different number, and trying to install it, and then it went immediately to a c: prompt. for a few moments, the pc made these really quiet noises -- not hd sounds, but something somewhat similar (almost like sci-fi "electronic" sounds), but nothing ever happened. it wouldn't even boot into the bios after that.

another method intel gave for flashing was to download & copy this .bio file to a cd, put in into the drive of the target machine, and boot it up with the bios configuration jumper off, to force it into recov... Read more

Hi All,Yesterday reinstalled win 7 x86 on my X61s and initiated a BIOS upgrade after system update asked me to... I am not sure to which version it was attempting to upgrade from and to however it failed, it go to the step of "Reading old BIOS" after which the update utility software just started stalling and became unresponsive. After this my laptop now wont boot, i can push the power button and get a green power light but thats it. I have gathered from reading around different forums that a failed BIOS update may mean a bricked laptop and that this is seen before on windows 7 (does anyone know if this has been confirmed by Lenovo?)Just wanted to check if there are any possibilities for this laptop to come back to life? are there any type of special restoration i can force when powering on? Or do i have any other options? Oh and it is out of warranty. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Answer:X61s BIOS update gone wrong.

about the only thing you can try is unhook the power supply, take out the battery, find the CMOS battery, (probably under the keyboard), take it out, push the power button and hold it down to drain any residual power in the machine, let it set for about 10 minutes then reconnect the CMOS battery and put the power supply back on and put the battery in and turn it on and hope for the best.  if it still doesn't work, then you'll either need a new motherboard or you'll have to find somebody who can solder a new bios chip on the board, good luck.

Hey.

I recently wantet to make a Bios update on my notebook and half way through there came an error and closet down.. i continuet working on the notebook and then later rebootet it and nothing happend. Just a black screen with a - blinking up in the left corner. My guess is that the Bios is messed up and need to be resetted.. But i dont know where to find the battery on the laptop or if that even would help to take that out for a couple of sec. like it would on a stationary computer. Any suggestions other then send it in. then i have to be without a computer for at least 3 weeks :D

Answer:Bios Update went wrong on a Satellite L30-105

You have no chance to fix this problem at home, you need professional help. After a wrong update you can not simply reset the BIOS. Taking out the battery won't solve your problem, it works only if the BIOS is not damaged.

Answer:What do i do wrong trying to update BIOS on Satellite L40?

Hello

Unfortunately you didn't write which Satellite L40 you have exactly. I have checked Toshiba support page and there are listed three different models (PSL4xxx).
So you must be sure you have chosen the right model.
Please inform us about this.

I want also to discuss something else too. If the system runs well and stabile you do not need BIOS update. Fast or slow boot, in my opinion, has nothing to do with BIOS but with OS configuration. You must optimize start up procedure and be sure notebook must not start all useless applications and processes. It is nothing but wasting the time.

On this forum you can find many interesting threads about that. Have a look into this one http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=131925

Hi

It looks like something went wrong during the BIOS update.
In such case the ROM module was flashed not correctly and therefore your notebook cannot boot up as it should.

I think the BISO ROM must be flashed again but this can be done only by an Toshiba ASP because the guys have got a trad-BIOS version which is necessary to flash the ROM module again.

I have an HP envy M6 -n012dx Notebook that I bought about 3 years ago. Things were getting screwy with the preinstalled software so I did a clean windows 8.1 64bit install. I have installed the latest support assistant but am having issues with the bios upgrade. This PC has an AMD A10-4600M chipset. My bios version is F.36Ap1. The support assistant brings up the same bios version I already have believing I need to upgrade to it. There is a much newer bios version listed on hp website for windows 8.1 64bit and I need it. It is version F24 Rev.A, SP76947.exe. I have tried to manually download it and install it using the usb thumbdrive method but encountered problems. The first thing it says is: Update, this bios is blocked on this device. It prompts me to use a USB thumb drive or copy bios image to any location. I remember seeing a message when previously trying this method which mentioned that I do not have the bios update environment. So I installed the Bios configuration utility from HP. I have the PDF directions for using it but have no idea where to start. The USB thumb drive method is not working, I assume I need to set up the bios configuration utility but I have no idea how to do that. I need help with this issue.

My notebook is around a year old and in good condition - a few days ago the keyboard completely stopped working. I went through a lot of fixes and troubleshooting, and some of the symptoms really don't match what i am seeing online. For starters, the majority of the time it will not accept an external (USB) keyboard. Also, in order to be able to enter my password with a USB keyboard i have to boot the computer whilst holding Shift and Enter. Now the keyboard is being extremely temperemental, it isn't useable. Certain keys will occasionally work but not correctly, for example the 'T' key will operate TAB. So far i have done a full system restore, i have removed the battery and held the power button for around a minute, i have updated the keyboard driver and reinstalled it. I've been trying these things in different orders for the past 2 days and i'm not making any progress. The computer hasn't been in contact with any moisture, it hasn't been dropped.  The next step i am considering is updating the BIOS - i have no knowledge of this and wondered if this was an appropriate thing to do?

I switched off the PC.
Now when I press the power button to start the Notebook the monitor is black and I can hear a sound brrr, brrr, brrr from the CD-Rom drive.

Yes, the upgrade flash went wrong with me also, as so many i've seen. Weird that toshiba recommends a bios flash when you get errors installing win7/ vista, and have it fail so much.

I tried getting 3 different bios versions from the internet, 2 from the toshiba site (2.0 and 2.1 i thought) and alaa200a.rom.

When i make the crisis disk with the crisdisk.bat (even doing it in DOS) it copies all files on the floppy, also tried the different phflash versions. Older ones seem to actually load for 2 minutes, the newer ones tend to load for a few seconds then stops and starts loading again etc.

Needless to say, all my efforts with those bios haven't paid off for one bit.

When i put the notebook normally on, and when i press the Fn button on the keyboard, the Fn light actually lights up, but nothing else happens.

Anyone who might have any idea what to do more, apart from buying a new bios chip?

To be honest you can be happy that your notebook works because many people have had bad luck after not successful BIOS update.

In my opinion you should not ?play? with BIOS updates. At the end you will damage BIOS update and your notebook will not start at all. Maybe you should contact Toshiba service provider and clarify this. Ask for help. They should do it for you. If something goes wrong it will not be your fault.

Be careful with this. It is just my opinion and advice for you. Don?t change well running system.

Hi,

After I updated the BIOS (from Toshiba's website), the scrolling function stop working. I can still click, move the mouse pointer, but can no longer scroll through touch pad. Reinstalling Synaptics driver doesn't resolve the problem. The strange thing is that the computer only detects my touchpad as standard pointing device (port: PS/2) device. 'Pressure graph' and 'Moodpad' function also stop working and complain 'this program requires a Synaptics TouchPad and the Synaptics Pointing device driver'.

Answer:Satellite A200 - Touchpad scrolling function stop working after update BIOS

Hello,

Which operating system is installled and which is more interesting: which BIOS version did you installed?? Why I am asking? Because there are 2 different BIOS versions, one for Vista (1.80) and one for XP (5.20) which means when you flash a XP BIOS on a machine with Vista installed then some functions are not working properly like the FN keys or the touchpad.

Please check this out and make sure you have the proper BIOS installed.

My computer is a HP 15 Notebook PC, and I use Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit). I recently received notice of a important update regarding an HP Notebook System BIOS Update (AMD Processors). I tried doing the update, but it seems to behave strangely. Creating a restore point, checking available space, connecting to HP servers, and the downloading itself are all marked with a green check, but when it goes to installing, after a few seconds of it, a gray X box shows up beside installing, and all I can do is click 'next', and it leaves. What am I supposed to do? Is this update supremely necessary to keep using my computer as is? Model number: f100dx Product: J2X70UA//ABA

I implemented a HP Support recommended BIOS update.  At the end of the update, I was informed that the computer would be restarted to complete the update.   My computer powered up but my screen remained black.  I waited an hour and finally did a hard reset.  Same result...power is on but nothing shows up on my screen.  I did combinations of AC and battery power and but got the same result. How do I resolve this issue?

Hello I recently purchased a HP Pavilion 17-ab004na (ENERGY STAR). Within the HP Support Assisstant there is an update entitled: HP Notebook System BIOS Update (Intel Processors). The install fails when I try to install it. Thank you Luke

Answer:HP Notebook System BIOS Update (Intel Processors)

Hi Luke,HP has decided to prevent the HP support assistant from listing and installing BIOS updates automatically to machines (according to latest update in the Inner Circle of this Forum, which I've access to). May be this is on the process of implementation worldwide.Why?You need to update system BIOS only when:- you face a issue with the laptop which can solved by updating BIOS- latest BIOS update gives you more features that is useful for you- latest update is recommended or mandatory to be installed because it provides additional security measuresThis is the latest one listed in your support page:http://support.hp.com/gb-en/drivers/selfservice/swdetails/HP-Pavilion-17-Notebook-PC-series/10862170...Support page: http://support.hp.com/gb-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Pavilion-17-Notebook-PC-series/10862170/model/119...Please read this before updating: http://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c00042629I suggest you don't proceed with BIOS updating as of now.RegardsVisruth

HP ENVY Notebook 17t-n100 did an auto bios update but the screen went black and is setting like this for several hours. The power light was still on last time I looked. I turned on the computer and was reading the message on the screen and before I finished reading the screen it started the bios update and I was too late to stop it. It seemed to be from the HP assistant so after it started I figured it would be OK. Now what do I do? Do I try to restart? And Where do you get to HP support rather than this forum? Does HP monitor this forum or do just other users respond?

I updated my BIOS version before (around a month ago) but I just discovered that the HP Notebook System Bios Update (Intel Processor) was skipped. I actually cancelled this update and when I tried to do it again it didn't allow me anymore. I contacted the HP Chat Support at that time and they said my laptop was fine. I got a blue screen of death once and that was it. That was the only issue I had with my laptop. After that I updated to the latest version of the w10 Anniversary Update a week ago. I do not have any problems with it, my laptop is running smoothly. I haven't encountered any problems. I just reccently purchased this 2 months ago.  Well recently, I got an update in the HP Support Assistant regarding an update for the Intel Serial 10 Driver. I contacted the HP Chat Support and they said my laptop didn't need the driver. That it was a general update and not targeted to any specific PC. Long story short he said I didn't need it, I don't need to update and that my laptop was fine. The Windows 10 Anniversary update... Well updates everything the tech said. I was just wondering:1. Is the HP Notebook System BIOS Update (Intel Processor) a CRITICAL update that I really  need to find a link or something to update it?2. Is it harmful that I didn't update it?3. Do I really need to update it?4. Is it the reason that the HP Support Assistant notified me about the Intel Serial 10 Driver? My Driver Version is: 20.19.15.4377 I hope I provide... Read more

Hi

I don?t know why it happened after the BIOS update but I presume the keyboard language settings are not correct.

Go to control panel -> Regional & Language Options -> Languages (second tab) -> Details

Here you should choose the right keyboard language (Spanish???)

If I try to update my bios, I get an error message 'rom file wrong szie' and yes that is the way it is spelt.

Tecra A3 is pretty new unit and it will be interesting to know why you want to make BIOS update. Is there any problem with it?

Which BIOS update doesn?t run, windows or traditional one? If you have no serious problem, don?t do it at all.

The issue with your multidrive is a little bit confused for me. Which software you should install?

 Hi. I wrongly installed the BIOS for T400 laptop thinking it was for "T400 series". So stupid, I know. The link of the wrong BIOS is http://support.lenovo.com/ar/es/downloads/ds014989.The right one is http://support.lenovo.com/ar/es/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-t43... The computer now shows totally black screen when on. No BIOS nor boot. The buttons lights do the same as always, they turn on and then off on the energy start. After some minutes, the cooler start working. So I think it's not totally dead, is it? Anyway, is there a way to install the correct T430 BIOS and have the boot back? Thanks in advance

Answer:Wrong BIOS update and now the system doesn't boot! Plz help..

A great big OUCH!

You could try reflashing it with the correct one if it will get that far. But it probably wont even boot to floppy now... The only way I can think of is to remove the BIOS chip and reflaash it in a programmer

Thats exactly why I never flash a BIOS unless its absolutly needed.

SupportAssist selects the E5530 version of bios update, which fails to install.
Workaround is to to manually select and install.
Also does not seem to be able to actually install the chipset update it claims to have, as the option will re-appear the next time SupportAssist is started.
Might explain the missing webcam.

Hi everyone, I just recently purchased the above mentioned laptop in the No SLI version and with DVD drive. After its arrival I updated all drivers from the lenovo home page, including the Bios update for the VGA Nvidia card (gt755m2ndvgayx10p.txt). After having installed all updates (under Win 8.1) I suffered serious issues with the gt755m (FurMark Benchmark only 800 pts) and later realized that the gt755m bios update was only mend to be for the SLI version. I hope that someone can help me out as I didnt backed up the stock bios and dont find it in the internet either. Thanks in advance!

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

Product Name: HP ENVY m7 j020dx
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
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.
