Firmware for a BenQ CD-RW

Question: Firmware for a BenQ CD-RW

Hi, I just got a CD-RW from BenQ. It is a CRW5224P model. On the back of the box it came in, it says "An easy firmware download from our www.BenQ/com website enables you to easily upgrade your unit."

When I click on the 5224P to get the firmware, nothing happens. My Browser acts like its is loading the page for about 10 minutes, then it tells me the page can not be displayed.

Anyone else have problems like this with BenQ?
How important is it for me to get this update?

Thank you!

Preferred Solution: Firmware for a BenQ CD-RW

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I recently replaced my CD drive with a drive that was exactly the same (not new - we bought it with the one that had just stopped working, as a spare). It's a couple of years old so I assumed I would need to update the firmware. The drive was working, but very very slowly.

So I checked what firmware version I had and tried to get the latest one from the BENQ website. What I had was B7S9. That didn't seem to be on the website so I googled it and found out it was only used in Asia (or something). This is where the confusion came in. I then found you could 'flash' to a different firmware. So I read the instructions etc., so I knew what I was doing and flashed to the latest one on the BENQ website which was B7W9. I tried putting a game disc in, and it worked, but a music CD didn't. Now, I've gone through various different firmwares and they all do different things but none of them make my cd drive work fully... after reading loads of threads/posts on that cdfreaks forum I'm just more confused and have no idea which firmware I'm meant to be using and how to even install it properly.

Can I PLEASE just get some clear instructions on how to do this. I have a feeling I've pretty much ruined my current CD drive from doing all the different things I've read. This really is ridiculous... it shouldn't be so difficult.


Answer:BENQ 1620 firmware trouble

Your right, this should not be so difficult, so I will help you for next time; Never update your firmware unless you need to.

If the firmware update does not specifically address an issue your having, then its a waste of time. I have never had to update a CD drive firmware in my life. Case in point, the BS9 firmware as far as i can find the "S" firmware is good for cheap dvd media, and that is being used a lot in China. So, you would not need this and I suspect it could actually cause problems for you.

That said, see if you can revert to the original firmware, do that. If the drive seems slow, it might not be the drive but the CD or the PC itself communicating. Something out of your hands. If a firmware addresses a speed issue, or a problem with the CD drive and something specific to your computer, then use that. Otherwise, I can't say it enough, if it does not address your issue, do not update the firmware.

I am trying to coble together two non-working Zen Xtras into a working one. I receive a message: "Firmware Problem," and am instructed to reload the firmware. When I attempt to do so, the firware does not recognize the device although the device shows up in My Computer as a Zen Xtra. I have reloaded the drivers. When I attempt to reinstall the firmware, it states that it cannot detect the device and please connect it now. How do I resolve this lack of recognition?

Is it possible to replace a routers firmware w/ something other than the original firmware to update from wep encryption to wpa encryption and all the other features that these new routers have? If so is this hard to do and is there a big risk or really screwing things up?

Answer:Replacing router Firmware w/ third party Firmware?

nope its easy, and as long as your smart and follow the few basic guildlines very unlikely chance of damaging the router. Biggest suggestion is never do the update via wireless as if you loss signal or what not could loose a bit of data for the router update.

Question: BenQ LCD??

I'm looking at getting a new LCD screen. I have found one from BenQ, its a 17" FP737. Its got 450:1 contrast, 260cd/m brightness, and 16ms response time. Is this a good monitor?? Does anyone have any experience with BenQ? I'm also thinking of paying for their "zero dead pixel" guarantee. its an extra $17 CAD. Do you think its worth it?

Answer:BenQ LCD??

If the monitor is being shipped to you then I think the price isn't too bad, since a lot of places only take a return for seven or more dead pixels.

It also list 8ms response time but it says grey-to-grey. Elsewhere I have seen it listed as a 25ms response time.

Is this 8ms grey-to-grey misleading and will true 12 ms response time LCD's have a lower grey-to-grey response time?

Answer:benq 1620

Is there disk in one of your drives, or in floppy drive?

You might try configuring your BenQ as master, or even make sure it's jumpered as you think it is.
I would set DVD writer as master anyway.

Check cable's & jumper position.

If you disconnect the BenQ does everything work again?

Just wondering if anyone knows wat the problem could be and how i can solve it thanks in advance for the help provided

Answer:Benq Tft Fp91g+

im not sure wut the problem is. the only time my monitor doesnt recieve a signal is when the comp is off. so u have two things to try.

1. the cable going into ur monitor- check it and make sure it worx fine use another cable and see if the problem continues

2. hook the monitor to another comp- if the problem continues its ur monitor, if it doesnt then u have a problem with ur graphics card.

do it in that order, if there is a prob wit ur graphics card then go to someone like geek squad at bestbuy. they really know wut they are talkin about

Hi, I have a Joybook laptop that I got, a Chinese model(long story how I came across it), but it has a problem where it seemingly overheats. When I first received the laptop(it was broken) I tried to fix it. I booted up Windows xp(a Chinese version) and it seemed to work , and run Windows XP. I then tried a windows xp setup disc of mine and it crashed when it started to load the actual setup after, loading hardware. I then tried my Ubuntu 7.04 disc and It would start to load then say "Critical Temperature (101 c) sending Sigkill to all processes" or something like that. I cant imagine the temperature being 101 degrees Celsius?! seems awfully high for 10 seconds into boot up. After a few tries I managed to get Ubuntu installed by keep trying, and now it boots up occasionally into Ubuntu, otherwise just gives me the temperature warning. I can sometimes Get it to start X , other times it wont properly load the display.

Question: BENQ DVD-ROM 1650T

I have just fitted a new DVD-ROM as above, but I have severe problems.I also have a CD-RW Sony CRS225E which has also gone haywire. The symptoms are.Both light drives can read CDsThe DVD-ROM can't read DVD proprietary films, and the CD-RW cant write to disc.On boot up the CD-RW does not show, nor does it show in the bios. The DVD-ROM however does both. There is no firmware update for the DVD-ROM. I have "removed" the drives from the system hardware properties and rebooted with no result.I have reinstalled WIN 98SE and the Apps for the DVD, both WinDVD4 and a trial app of WINDVD6, both with no result. The DVD-ROM is on the Secondary IDE channel Master and the CD-RW on the Slave of the same channel.The master off course is on the "end" of the IDE cable and the CD-ROM on the intermediate one.Any ideas anyone? Thanks

Question: Viewsonic or BenQ

I was looking to go from my 22 inch NEC FE2111(too big) to an LCD monitor; However, I can't seem to make up my mind. I've narrowed it down to the Viewsonic VP191B ($449.00 at newegg) or the BenQ FP91G+ ($329.00 at newegg). I've heard nothing but good things about BenQ, and I already know the excellent reputation of Viewsonic. I do alot of gaming so that's an important factor. I know CRT has better visual quality than LCD, but I need to conserve space, so any input on these 2 monitors would be appreciated.

Answer:Viewsonic or BenQ

We use Viewsonic 17'' at my work & they r ok. Although I have a BENQ at home & I find it way better than the others. I had an LG one b4 & seriously the BENQ not only looks better but was cheaper too! they r owned by Acer or some other joint big organisation & are not crappy at all. others have said that because they haven't heard of them then they must be crap, but you just have to research them b4 judging.

Either r good ... but yeah thats just my opinion :grinthumb

The problem I have is that there are other things that I need to burn at a slower speed like 1x but that option is not there, 4x is the only option given. Its not just nero either so I guess its a problem with the Bcdb firmware which is the latest firmware for the drive.

Question: 22" Benq Monitor

Hi all,

This is my first post here so would like to say hello to everyone .
Ok to kick this off i have a very frustrating monitor problem. What happens is if for some reason when my pc gets shut down, or restarted my monitor does not seem to have a display and comes up with "no signal". Sometimes when i turn my pc off at the power button, and also my monitor and try to re-boot both my monitor may work at times but only like 1 out of 5 attempts at doing so. As you can imagine its becoming very frustrating. We run an at home business so we need/use the internet as much as possible so i guess i am here looking for a cheaper fix, rather then go out and buy a new monitor. This monitor is not under warranty anymore, and is about 2 years old. Any help/suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Thank you

Hello all!

Im new to this forum so first I want to say Hi! Im Jimmy. =)

Okay, I got this screen last winter as a christmas present and I do like it very much but since I play CS in 800x600(I dunno what that res is called) I want to have black bars.

I know the option "Display Mode" on my screen but that just makes it to small(it do the same res in every resolution I use). I cant find any drivers aswell for my screen, but maybe it doesnt exist =)

But as I said, I want blackbars when I play CS in 800x600 since it is not a widescreen res.
I use VGA and not dvi so that may be a problem but is it possible to get blackbars anyways?

Cya around! =) /Jimmy

Edit: Forgot to say that I have vga from the screen with a dvi adapter to my graphiccard.

I have bought a CDRW for an old Tiny machine, but the IDE plug is too long to fit the new socket. Is there an adapter which will help, please?

Answer:IDE connection for BenQ CDRW?

More detail please.The harddrive is connected to the IDE socket and there usually two. The IDE cable has usuallyspare connector unless your existing CD drive is on the same line. In which case it is possibly best toset the new drive jumper to slave and replace old CD with the new one.If you intend to hsve it as a second set the jumper to Masteraand connect with a new cable to the unoccupied IDE socket, which is ajacent to the one feefdng the HDD and CD

Has anyone had any experience of the Benq RF Cordless Air Touch Elite keyboard and mouse?Brought one last week after reading positive reviews on Amazon that suggested for 9.99 this was a bargain. When delivered, the receiver and the mouse would not talk to each other. Fair play to Benq - within 48 hours they had delivered a new set. Problem now is that the new mouse works fine but now the new keyboard and receiver will not talk to each other!!!!!I have tried installing on more than one PC, changed the batteries all to no avail. Am I doomed to spend the next couple of weeks sending them back and forth to Benq until they send me a set where the receiver speaks to both the mouse and the keyboard or does anyone have any bright ideas?

Answer:Benq wireless keyboard

My cordless mouse and keyboard has a small hole on the underside which you depress using a small pointed scewdriver and then press the button on the receiver unit to enable them to talk to thereceiver.i have to do this with both mouse and keyboard to make them work.hope this is of some help, mine is a packard bell but you may have simular type of activation.

Benq scanner SZW 3300U . Was installed on Win ME and ran OK for 5 years using installation disk provided.Now trying to install on Win ME with same disk. Problems getting it to recognise that the scanner exists, and then message that to proceed further may cause damage to my system, etc, etc. Anyone out there with this experience? Is it simply that it needs new drivers?

Answer:benq scanner and windows XP

tried new driver (mirror, via Benq website) but get same warning - "not passed the [microsoft?] test.....driver nor digitally signed or not signed in appropriate manner....".Should I go ahead and install it anyway? or do I have to buy new scanner? (hope not)

It's an S2W3300U and my OS is Vista, but I had the scanner with my previous PC so it's probably 5 years old.Until a few weeks ago it was OK but it's started behaving oddly - assumes I want to save everything I scan as a JPEG, even when I?ve set it to text; and the scans are illegible - difficult to describe but entire background is grey dots so the text (or whatever I scan)is kind of reversed , like looking at a negative.When I switched to Vista a year ago there were no Benq drivers available for that OS so I use a driver from Hamrick. WAs fine until recently.Is the current problem likely to be the driver or the scanner itself? It was cheap , so doesn?t owe me anything; I?m wondering whether to ditch the scanner and buy new or try to fix the problem.

Answer:problem with a Benq scanner

Try removing and reinstalling your driver.

I just finished building my PC and currently am using it with my 42 inch TV.
However, I would like to move to a proper monitor on my desk.
I'm thinking of getting 2 monitors.
I live in Japan, and I can get this monitor at 144 USD each.

The main need is for gaming, everything from the Witcher 3 to Skyrim to DOTA 2 and future games.

Here are my PC's specs:

Here is the monitor in question:

If you could answer any of the following questions or have any insight on the monitor, I would be grateful.

Is the BenQ GL2460HM a good gaming monitor?
Is it too high/ too low quality for my GPU?
Is it a good monitor for dual display?

Is there another monitor you think makes better use of my PC's specs/ meets my needs?
I'm not wanting to spend much more than 300 USD, I may opt to buy a single monitor which is of higher quality.

Thank you

Answer:Is the BenQ GL2460HM a good fit for my PC?

Honestly I do not see a issue with you using that monitor. It should actually preform perfectly with your computer.

I am experiencing an intermittent problem with a BenQ FP791 flat panel monitor. Sometimes during start-up or a reboot, the ?No Signal Detected? message appears on the screen, which then goes blank. The same problem always occurs after entering standby mode.I have emailed BenQ about this problem and to their credit, they have been quite responsive. I do however have an issue with them because they have suggested that I try the monitor on a different machine and to make sure that I have all the latest Windows XP updates.Firstly, I do not have access to another computer with a DVI connection (I am currently using this). Secondly I don?t understand how this can be a Windows problem for the following reason. If I unplug the monitor from the mains, reconnect it and then switch it on, the picture is always displayed. If the problem was with the PC then surely doing this would not resolve the problem. Furthermore, if it is an issue with Windows, the problem would not occur when the PC is first switched on re rebooted.I intend to go back to BenQ on this but before doing so, I would like t know whether my theory is correct.Many thanks.

Did you mean driver, or drive?
If you are running XP, I'd delete the driver(in device manager), reboot, and let windows detect new hardware, and install new driver automatically. Don't know if Windows 98 will do this, but XP will. Also check to make sure you have the latest firmware for the drive.
If all else fails, contact BenQ. They should be able to help............
Good luck!

I recently bought a new monitor (Benq XL2430T) and sometimes it goes to this(Look at the picture). I wanted to check wether it is a pc issue or monitor issue so I switched the 2 dvi ports (I have 2 monitors now) and the monitor still looked the same once it got connection with my computer, while it was disconnected it gave me a black screen. My computer is 4 years old and is pretty outdated since I never upgraded it. It had some issues with it in the past so it wont suprise me if it was computer's side. Can you help me? Thanks in advance!

Upon assembling, I pushed the BenQ LCD (model Q7T4) onto the monitor-stand.

Now it's leaning forward drunkenly & don't know how to swivel it backward. I'm afraid to force it at risk of breakage.

I also tried detaching the LCD from the base but it doesn't budge.

Is this irreversible? I don't know why they design things so non-intuitively.

Here's the pic:,03+Lt.&LANG=1

Answer:SOS - BenQ LCD leaning forward - how to fix?

Most LCD's I hae seen where you attach the base yourself its 4 prongs the "click" into the base. is it leaning at such an angle that it may have been placed in the base backwards? If thats the case can you lay it down LCD side down on something soft and use a flathead screwdriver to pop out the 4 prongs that snapped into the base to begin with?

I had a user who assembled theirs wrong and this was how I fixed thiers.

Tyson here, just wondering if you can help me out with a "little" problem.

I am trying to change the framerate in AMD catalyst control centre but I am not sure how and when I tried it changed the resolution to 720P (I need to use 1080P).

Anyway I am clueless as to what to do, by the way I am running Windows 7, using a 7970 and all of my drivers are up to date.

Hi all,

I have a relative's Benq laptop runing XP that shows its connected to the internet in
network connections but fails to load webpages.

It all started when it was running very poorly, thought it may have been a worm but scans
were negative. Installed more ram (for a total of 1GB) and blew XP Home of the face of the
planet, bought and loaded Pro onto it.

So the internet was "working" before the reload. When I say working the laptop was so
slow that webpages would time out, but eventualy we could get them to load.

With the new clean install of XP Pro

I can download updates for programs and can use google (can do searches). It can also
load some Australian hosted pages.

For pages it doesnt load it just seems to time out. Very simmilar result as you would
expect when your internet is shaped.

I thought thats what it was at first but the other computers on the network sharing the
same connection are fine working fine.

The cat5 isnt an issue as i have tried another PC's cable with the exact same (ofcourse
different MAC) networking options.

I have taken the laptop home and it works fine on both wireless and wired connection.

Because it is working at home I am finding it hard to replicate and therefore narrow down
the problem so have reset the ip stack, done the winsock fix.

I have windows 7 ultimate x86 dvd which I've used on my other desktops but when I boot to the external usb cdrom drive for the laptop, it has "Windows is loading files" flashing and flickering at the top of the screen which you can barely make out what it says.
IT seems like a video problem but im unable to plug this laptop into a external monitor to see if it makes a difference and lets me get past that step.
I've also left it for a good 2 hours and it just keeps jerking around and flickers at the top of the screen.
Made a USB bootable image of windows 7 ultimate but the laptop cannot boot to USB unfortunately.
Windows XP runs flawlessly on the laptop and is installed at the moment

I've tried a different windows installation DVD for win7 and it did not help.

Anyone got any ideas or what else I could try?

Thanks guys

Have recently switched to Vista. Unable to get my Benq Flatbed scanner W3300U working. Will appreciate suggestions to get it going. Thank you.

Answer:Benq W3300U and Microsoft Vista

Try this alternative driver/software package:

But Benq themselves do not seem to offer any support for Vista for that unit being its an outdated unit. If the above software doesn't work you would have to consider a new scanner.

A bit Catch 22 really!Have a 2K system happily running Nero which was originally bundled with a LiteOn CD R/RW.Recently, I added a Benq DVD DD DW1620 which with its bundled software was OK for reading DVDs. Today I decided to burn a lot of data with it. Starting to install Benq's 'Sonic' (DVD writing software) the program wanted to remove Nero first.I cancelled and ran Nero noting that it offered DVD burning if I chose the Benq device. I wandered through the Wizard up to the point where I pressed the burn button ...... straight away the message "Nero will only work on the device it was bundled with."I like Nero, am used to it and would like to stay with it, but it looks as though either -----[1] I will have to buy the latest Nero 6 or (Nero Reloaded)or [2] remove Nero, install Sonic and hope that will fully replace the nero I like?Which way should I jump?

Answer:Sonic (Benq) versus Nero 6?

Anyone you know got OEM Nero v6? That should work.
