How to update Phoenix AWARD BIOS v6.00PG

Q: How to update Phoenix AWARD BIOS v6.00PG

Hi, I was looking to update my motherboard drivers and there i found update for
my BIOS. My mobo is MSi K8N NEO4 Platinum [MS-7125] 1.0. I downloaded update for BIOS, and i got 4 files: 7125 - Text document that says what is that update doing. it says: This BIOS fixes the following problem of the previous version:
- Improve compatibility problem with nVidia graphic card
- Improve stability problem when doing overclock behavior.
Im getting a new nVidia gpu, and + my system is unstable when oc so i really need this update. I also got a exe. file, and some 160. file. when i click that exe file nothing happens. Last file i got is called How To Flash the BIOS.doc. Do i have to read that file in order to update bios?? I dont understand English very well, is FLASHING bios updating BIOS?

Preferred Solution: How to update Phoenix AWARD BIOS v6.00PG

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.)

A: How to update Phoenix AWARD BIOS v6.00PG

Unless you are having a problem that the BIOS update will solve, I recommend not flashing the BIOS. There is a risk. If something goes wrong with the flash whether it's your mistake or a power outage or something else, your motherboard could become useless. This is a risk especially if you are not sure how to read the instructions on how to do it.

Do you have a problem that you think updating the BIOS will fix?

Hi all, i have an AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core Processor bla bla with BIOS: Phoenix - AwardBIOS v6.00PG. Recently I need to perform a specific task which requires me to boot from external USB drive, it was when I noticed that apparently that BIOS does not support booting from USB drive. The only option was “removable media” which pointed to floppy disk. I have been told that by upgrading my BIOS to the most recent version will fix this problem. Anyone can lead me to the right direction of how to get this update? the free one of course. I did find the paid one whihc i think its rubbish because i think we shouldnt pay anything for flashing our BIOS. Thanks.

There is usually more to it then just, Hit F1.

Generally if a device is missing such as floppy drive, it will ask you to hit F1.

Look for any more information, and if it mentions floppy drive, go into your bios and disable the floppy drive, unless you do have a floppy drive, in that case, a plug or cable may be loose/unplugged.

I need to know if someone can assist over at HP and look into this. Does HP have a bios update for my said model Phoenix? Maybe never been posted? Currently my bios version is A0.08. That current version I have installed. When I installed it a few months ago. It was taken down shortly after from the support page for my pc. It has never been posted again. I would like to know if a newer version exist and maybe HP just never bothered to post the update for it? Why was it even pulled in the first place when HP posted it back then? I am on Windows 10 64 bit. And back then when this current version I am on was posted. It was posted under Windows 10 driver page.

Before I explain my dilemma let me say that I know i have an old cpu and motherboard, but I just need to keep it going for a bit longer.

Bios = Phoenix awards 6/2/2006
My current motherboard is an ecs c51gm-m am2 and the cpu is amd 64 x 2 3800+. I upgraded to Windows 7 and I didn't have any bios problems. According to the ecs documentation on their website the bios only supports up to windows xp amd 64 x 2.

I have an amd 64 x 2 6000+ am2 cpu lying around so I thought I could just swap out the cpu's, but before doing so I needed to update the bios. According to the documentation, the updated bios from 05/03/2008 would recognize the faster cpu. As far as os's were concerned windows 7 was not an option. So that's my dilemma. Am i just sol or is there a way to update the bios for windows 7?

And is it safe flashing to the newest bios even though they are listed for other systems with same specs? I am on version A0.08 and HP has updated them to A0.12 Example for this system here Also note. I am on and using Windows 10 myself. Those newer bios are for Windows 10.

You could try to extract the .exe for the files. Just more work though and not a guarantee it would even work. HP made the bios update mainly to run through the OS itself when updating. Or they would put out files for a usb stick as another choice. That is what I assume.

A:USB won't enable in Award BIOS

Normally, your USB BIOS would only be required to allow BOOTing a USB HD.

Your Belkin USB is not accessed at BOOT time, so stop fussing with BIOS.

If you have modem-->router setup, then the drivers are not required at all!

Use the Modem->Router using Ethernet cable and from the router->pcs as well.

Otherwise, modem-->pc(USB connected) requires a driver.

Generally the bios upgraded come for the motherboard manufacturer or the computer manufacturer.

You could probably get away with using a disk overlay if you can't find the bios. Most harddrive manufacturers offer them for download to install drives on older systems.

A:Award bios 4.51PG

It depends on what version date you have on it, since it is a flashable bios.. If you find a drive it doesn't support you should be able to flash it. Newest is from Oct 2002 here:

but I wouldn't flash it unless you definately had too. Better find out the model of your motherboard as well since the manufaturer may have made a few changes to the generic bios.

I checked out the BIOS Agent update, and researched it, and there are alot of complaints that the "update BIOS" is usually the same one that is available for free from the OEM, or in some cases, has bricked a system.

I suggest you not spend the money on a BIOS Agent subscription, and instead go to your OEM, and see if there is a BIOS update for your system.

I'm starting to think that the answer can only be found by someone else who had to deal with this...getting nowhere fast with Abit.

BIOS Question

I have an Abit BX-133 RAID motherboard which has Soft Menu III. I wanted to alter something in the Soft Menu III setup, but all the options, apart from CPU Operating Frequency and Spread Spectrum Modulated, are unavailable for me to alter. I can see them but can't change them. I opened my PC up and checked that all the DIP switches were set to the OFF position as it states in the manual. Can anyone tell me how to make these options available? For you information, I just wanted to alter the AGP transfer mode option.

A:Award Bios Soft Menu III question

On some of those utilities, they are written for several different models of motherboards. Some functions may not be availible to you ever because of your model of board. I have a Giga-Byte board with Easy Tune III and cannot use it with XP until they update the bios. Short answer may be, your out of luck. If I find any more info I will let you know.

When this PC has sat in a releativly cool enviroment, it will boot up just fine. But let it get warmed up good, say having it on for 5-8 minutes and it will not boot up!

It gives the "Award Boot Block BIOS V1.0" and will not go any further.

The BIOS is "Award Modular" Version 6.00P

Do I have a chipset problem? Do I just need to update the BIOS?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!

You ll need these utilities cbrom exe bmp epa exe A simple search should lead you to something Everytime your PC starts you may be forced to see a full screen logo of the manufacturer of your motherboard or PC I m not talking about the loading screen either which you can change in Windows anyways Well say no more to these advertising with logos motherboards Award your bios: change billboards and customize your own logos If you have a mobo that uses Award bios mine is version and I don t know if this mod works for previous versions and are getting tired of the same old logo when your PC starts follow my MOD if you want to call it that Note I just learned this a few minutes ago so do this at your own risk blackeye As always back up your current bios but you should be able to download them if you don t want motherboards with Award bios: change your logos to back them up I certainly don t backup mine There are many versions of motherboards with Award bios: change your logos cbrom and I just happened to use cbrom First step is to make a bitmap logo that s x bit and make sure you save it as bmp The file size of my logo was kb so make yours the same until everything works out fine For simplicity put cbrom exe your bios file and the bitmap file in the same directory In a dos prompt change to the directory where the files are located Type cbrom your bios file logo your bitmap file If everything worked out you shouldn t see any error message Basically what this does is replace the old logo with the new one inside the bios file Next step is to flash your bios and see if every thing worked out fine or maybe not If you want to go a bit deeper you can also change the small Energy Star compliant logo in the top-right corner of the screen after the initial logo is displayed This step is a bit more involving and I don t have time to show the details since I ll be going to school in a few minutes Remember the Golden rule never blame erwin rolleyes If you don t like your logo simply reload the old firmware nbsp

however, it wont boot a bootable CD or a bootable floppy - it it does is boot he hardrive - unfortunately the problem with the PC is it boots up logs in and then logs out again

cant find any manual / screen shots so i can see how to change sequence and if indeed this is the sequence.

I just moved my system (Asus M2N sli deluxe) to a new Antec computer case, and installed a large Noctua heat sink. Still using the same video card (Asus en7200gs). when I tried to boot up I got the error code. Makes sense b/c I don't get any video. I tried re-seating the video card and tried a different slot. No luck.

I just ordered a new video card to try out (I could use the HDMI upgrade anyways), but I have doubts that will fix it based on other inconclusive threads I have read.

What else could the problem be? Could it be the new CPU heatsink? Maybe the motherboard is bowed? Anything else I can try?

EDIT - website that helped me b4 is ""

A:Reinstalling Xp... Phoenix Bios?

If you have a SATA hard drive, please read on:

This is typically caused by having the hard disk controller option set to AHCI instead of ATA in the bios so you have two choices:

Go into the bios and change that option from AHCI to ATA, reboot, and your hard drives should be found.


Download the AHCI drivers for your mobo and place them on a floppy. Once done, press F6 when prompted during the install process to load the AHCI drivers. Your hard drive will then be found later in the process.

Most people will opt to do the simple switch to ATA even though a few functions like NCQ and Raid become unavailable; however, your system should run fine in the ATA mode. Let us know.

I have recently acquired a Phoenix board with Award bios and none of my components work with the board. When I called the Award team, I was informed that the reason is because the components are too new for the board and the IRQ's are not being assigned correctly. I was then told that the only way I could fix this problem was to pay $60 for the bios update. This board was designed for an AMD XP 1500+. Now this seems to me that a board that new should be able to recognize newer components. Also, is that pretty standard that you have to pay for a bios upgrade or do most companies fairly let you upgrade for free for buying their product? Is this my only option?

You can boot the USB flash drive on a BIOS that does not support it by using Plop Boot Manager. Download In the zip file is an iso called plpbt.iso. Burn the iso to a CD using Imgburn or other software that can burn an image. Boot the CD and use your arrow keys to select USB then press enter.

A:still unable to get password FOR PHOENIX BIOS

Welcome to techspot...

Look in your mainboard manual for instructions on how to "clear cmos" or similar. Basically, it's a little jumper on the mainboard that erases the BIOS settings (which is where the password is stored).

Once you've done that, enter the bious, and load failsafe defaults if you don't know how to set it up as you'd otherwise want it, and proceed to only change the things you understand, or that are related to any problem you are having (and it helps if you understand those!)

Lastly, just a bit of kind advice, but please don't continue to post all in caps (uppercase). Apart from looking untidy, many consider it to be equivelant to shouting, and so it's considered impolite (just simple nettiquette).

now here is a strange question
If I buy a 40gb HDD will it detect it at 32 and run ok or will it just boot it out and wont find it.
reason being , looking around most UK stores 30gb seem to be specialist now and expensive , whereby i can buy a 40gb drive as cheap as chips!!

It should work. Many makers also supply 'overlay' software to access the whole drive, but it may be best to use just 32 of your 40G drive.

When an IBM compatible computer is first turned on, the hardware runs a Power-On Self Test (POST). If errors are encountered during this POST test, they are usually displayed via an audio beep or in the form of a code number flashed across the screen. With this audio code in hand, you can determine what part of the system is having problems and find a solution.

<small>The pattern of beeps whether its the number of beeps or the length of those beeps will give you an indication of the actual problem. Its a distress signal from the computer in a morse code like pattern. Unless you have a diagnostic card to tell you more about the particular problem, you will have to use the charts below to decipher the computer error and get your machine back up and running.

A:When starting up in XP, a Phoenix BIOS DOS program opens & asks F1 or F10 to continue

Hello and Welcome to TSG.

Sounds like the battery on the motherboard has died (this is not to be confused with the laptop's battery). It's the reason why the bios losing its settings (and date/time) when the laptop is off.

But this wouldn't affect the history in IE, unless maybe the date was really off and IE deleted the history (it's usually set to delete websites that haven't been accessed in 30 days).

I'm positive of the first paragraph. The second one, I question myself. Hopefully someone with more knowledge then me will also respond.

I'm getting very frustrated - running Windows XP and Phoenix 6.00 Bios, I want to boot from hard disk first and never from whatever might be plugged into the USB sockets. If say, I have an ipod or external hard drive plugged into the USB, bootup always looks there first and of course gives a "disk boot failure - insert system disk and press enter" message.

Here's how my bios is setup:

- Primary Master - None
- Primary Slave - None
- Secondary Master -DVDRW drive
- Secondary Slave - DCD ROM drive
Advanced Bios
- First Boot Device - HD0
- Second Boot Device - disabled
- Third Boot Device - disabled
- Boot Other Device - disabled
Surely someone must know ? I'd really appreciate.

In my experience the special disk is needed which is available only for ASP technician.
Therefore it?s necessary to contact the ASP in your country in order to reflash the BIOS.

Hello all, this is my first time posting here so please forgive any mistakes/oversights. I've just updated my Samsung laptop's system BIOS via their software update program, and my Nvidia GPU (GT 650m DDR3) no longer seems to work. The Nvidia control panel is still there, and it still gives me the option to select which programs use the GPU, but there is no GPU actitivity showing up. Also,I've tried playing Skyrim (which auto-detects the PC's graphics cards) , and the game no longer seems to detect the Nvidia GPU (just the Intel integrated graphics).

My laptop model is NP550PC7, with 6 gig of ram, and an i7 quad core CPU, and the OS is Window 7 Home Premium 64bit.

I've tried looking in the BIOS but I can't seem to find anything related to the GPU or display options. Any help or avice is much appreciated.

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


Have you updated your GPU with the latest drivers?

Please navigate to:

Look under "Display Adapters"

Is the Nvidia GPU listed there? If so are there any yellow symbols etc?

I have a old Tecra 9100 with years of good service, and this is my first problem, but is a great one, after a forced reboot the screen shows a BIOS block 1 damaged message. I have tried to repair the BIOS upgrading to the last version I have found, the 1.6 one, but its a Windows version (to upgrade from a running Toshiba computer I think) and when I try to run it in another computer to generate a FDD and upgrade BIOS, I cant, beacuse a Toshiba common modules message.

Its there any BIOS diskette image-archive I can dowload to perform the BIOS upgrade in the BIOS?

Thanks in advance.

All you can find is stuff on Toshiba support page. I don't know where you live but try to contact nearest Toshiba authorized service provider.
They have access to Toshiba database and they can obtain all this for you. Make a call and ask for help. I am pretty sure they will help you to solve this BIOS issue.
