# "167 - No processor bios update found" - but how ??

Q: "167 - No processor bios update found" - but how ??

hello

My comp is: IBM

machine type: NETVISTA 6578
Model HGD

I found on IBM website that Coppermine Pentium III 800 Mhz is correct one for the main board: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-4LHMXK

So I had bought and instaled the Processor PIII 800. Hmm next in BIOS I can see a crap:

"167 - No processor bios update found"

I cleared BIOS albd loaded default values. IBM website is really crap

Preferred Solution: "167 - No processor bios update found" - but how ??

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.

A: "167 - No processor bios update found" - but how ??

and my BIOS date is 2003. IBM is a crap isn't it ?

Chalkman, Welcome to SF.
Please read the mobo manual and plug the sata cable to the target hard drive into sata port I (one). Make sure you have the power cable connected to the PSU. Please have all other sata connections removed except for the optical drive if it's a sata connection and then retry the clean install.

I really hope some one can help me with this. I have tried everything I know. Everytime I go to shut down or even log off, this error pops up. I press return, and it carries on as normal but its just really annoying.

I have tried reinstalling XP service patch 2, scanning for missing windows files, looked at the leven manager but it tells me nothing, looked at task manager nut there are no running applications, tried resitry cleaning tools, disabled erro reporting.....but nothing has worked.

I think...think...this may have happened after a virus was found on my pc and I chose delete but since then, I have deleted the anti virus program and used another one.

Does any one know, how I can either turn off the message or better still track what file its trying to find. Any help would be most appreciaed.

Welcome to TSG...That error message usually includes the name of the .dll file-without that, you're right...tough to pin down.

If you've just recently installed a new program (like your new antivirus), try uninstalling from add/remove programs and reinstalling the application. Corrupted or unfinished installations can be at fault...

If you have the slightest suspicion that there may still be malware on your machine, download hijackthis here:

http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.

Good Evening All,

I having a problem with my Dell Latitude D610.

I went to update the BIOS and it said that the battery is not installed despite the laptop running solely off of battery power!

I have ran the dell device diagnostic and device manager and no issue appears to be with the battery. When you check the battery info in the BIOS settings it says the batteries are not installed and also when you log into XP it constantly says running off of AC power even when its not plugged in!

Any one got any ideas what could be causing this and how it can be solved?

Thanks Nick

A:Dell Latitude "battery not installed" preventing BIOS update

It may be referring to the CMOS battery which is wired to the computer beneath the keyboard. The battery can be replaced for $8.95 to$29.95 depending on where you purchase...

But regardless, you do have a problem that must be resolved. The D610 has been one strange little irrelevant problem after another... but you cannot afford to irritate it and have that mysterious unremovable password appear as it has on so many D610 and D620 Dells.

Known issue, but Toshiba takes forever to make it right... Yes we have seen the problem... but don't expect Toshiba to get it back to you quickily... as they have to replace the system board, and they are usually out.
There is nothing you can do but send it in... because otherwise your system board is ruined.
Good luck

"No sound card was found. If one is expected, you should install a sound driver provided bv the hardware manufacturer".

This is where I get fuzzy and lost. Do I need a new sound card installed? Is that the problem?Click to expand...

That dxdiag "no sound card" message is misleading as I've found it says that if no driver OR sound card. I think you're missing the right driver

Also, it would seem from your post you have High Definition (HD) audio. Which means you'll need to find the right High Definition audio driver. (AC97 pre-dates HD audio so the Realtek AC97 couldn't be right)

Try starting on the HP support website HERE and enter your model number or they have a button where they'll try to identify your product and drivers for your model. They should list an HD audio driver there

I recently flashed the BIOS on my P5N32-E SLI from 1404 to 1601, and when it was done, the board would no longer successfully POST with both of my 8800GTS 512s plugged in. Every time it POSTed it would fail either upon listing the CPU speed, or while searching for HDDs and optical drives. Problem disappeared when I removed my second 8800GTS. I wondered if maybe my power supply (460 watt Enermax, 33A +12V) was starting to fail, because it is a little low on juice to power an SLI system.

But it powered it just fine for about 4 months.

So that led me to believe that this BIOS flash has somehow caused the board to not want to POST anymore when both cards are plugged in. So I'm wondering if it's possible to flash my BIOS back to an older version, one that actually allows SLI to work.

EDIT: Fixed, see post 10.

A:"Update" BIOS to a previous version

IF you updated your Bios you might need to also go into it and re-enable SLI.

Entering the bios limits me to certain options. Is there anyway to access the other options? sorry, newbie here.

A:No "usb legacy support" "qfan" options on my asus laptop bios.

If your BIOS doesn't include such options, then they simply are not there.

I don't know about hacking BIOS's, and I wouldn't suggest it at all. You could brick your motherboard.

However, you should check with your manufacturer's website and see if there is an update available for the BIOS that may increase available options.

I am buying a "MSI P965 Platinum LGA 775" motherboard and Iam confused which Processor to buy.
Which of the two Processors work with it?
The Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 1.8GHz:

And the:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819115017

If both is accepted from the motherboard,I already know that the Quad Q6600 is better, but is it going to be such a big difference in performance to choose it. it is almost 600\$ difference.
Thank you

A:What is the difference between an "2M shared L2 Cache" processor and a "2 x 4MB L2 C"

One shares the level 2 cache on the CPU and the other has 2 different 4MB 2 level cache on the CPU. This one I would go with. Think of these caches as a buffering to and from the CPU thus speeding up the processing power.

If you got the money get the Quad Core one is going to be faster and better than Dual Core...

BIOS's vary widely; there is no standard features that are included. It's possible your BIOS has neither of them.

If these are features you are interested in exist, the first thing to do is to check the motherboard manufacturer's web site's "support" page, and find out what the latest version of BIOS is available for your motherboard, compare that to what you actually have on your motherboard, and then read the change log to see if possible these features were added.

You can also research these features by Googling the text "ModemRingOn" and the model number of your motherboard "GA-XYZ123" in the same search, in order to filter hits that are limited to those that include references to both of these qualities. Look for forum posts, and other technical sites & information.

Also, look for the User Manual for your motherboard on-line. Sometimes these include information on the BIOS of the motherboard.

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

So I have this weird thing happening in my relatively fresh install of Windows 10.
Whenever I search for "Check for Updates" or "Windows Update settings" on the search box of the start menu, I get the results that I want but if I press enter or try to click on those results nothing happens.. As far as I know I can click all others search results but those, and maybe others related to windows update.

I can still get updates by going to Settings>Update & Security though.

In my other computers this works fine, and as far as I can tell all the updates are done.
From what I've searched around other people seemed to have a similar issue where they couldn't acess the settings at all which isn't my case. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results.

Hi --

I just migrated to a new hard drive and did a clean install of Win7 (did not have SP1 on the DVD).

During the Updating process, windows stopped working and I received an error, something about running Update again, etc. So I rebooted and finished the Upgrading process...no further problems noted.

However, I view the "Installed Updates" and see that KB2604114 and about 20 other updates "FAILED." But when I view the "Update History," it lists KB2604114 and the others as "installed."

I'm confused. Are the updates I'm referring to "FAILED" or are they properly installed?

Thanks!

A:Win7 - "View Update History" vs. "Installed Update"

In your description, you might have switched the observations.

"History" is a log that tracks attempts at installing specific updates. One user might have multiple failed attempts for a particular update; or multiple successful attempts if one was looking for a source of a problem.

"Installed updates" records the last successful installation of a specific update; no timestamp, just the date.

I just upgraded from Vista Home Premium to Win7 professional x64 hoping to fix the above mentioned problem. After a complete re-install Im getting the same errors.

Im not sure of the proper terminology here, but during startup the computer does a scan of all hardware and "Volume 0" has a "failed" message.

The odd thing is that sometimes after a few restarts and pointless boot menu visits the computer starts up fine.

I tried windows repair feature by booting from the disk, but when I get to the window where i select the operating system to repair, its empty. Drive C, where the operating system is, is not showing.

I have a feeling that the hard drive itself has gone bad and is very unstable. Please let me know if I'm missing something or we just need to get a new HD.

Thank you

What type of hdd do you have. For example if you have a Seagate drive, there is software you can run to do a diagonostic on the hdd before the operating system boots.
This would be a good idea, especially if you were having same issues when Vista Home Premium was installed first.

Do you have more than one hdd installed. If yes, make sure in BIOS settings, the proper drive is selected for First Boot. And better yet make sure its the only drive attached when booting.

Microsoft Updater says I have a critical update (KB2286198) to install but it fails and gives the message: "WindowsUpdate_80246007" "WindowsUpdate_dt000".

I've tried a couple of things that MS Support suggests but they don't work and don't seem to really apply to this particular error message. Searching for the error code 80246007 hasn't yielded anything yet that works.

Hi!

My Vista laptop has worked free from problems for a while but last day when I tried to normally boot it, it said "operative system not found" and "PXE-EX1; media test failure. check cable" and so forth.

And then, when I tried to re-install or perhaps restore Vista, when the "Where do you want to install Windows?" comes up, it says that "No drivers were found", altough they were in some weeks ago.

What should I do? Has my computer gone to inevitable death, or is there anything i can do?

No drivers were foundClick to expand...

it actually said "no drives were found"

Sounds like the hard drive died (most likely) or the data cable connecting it to the motherboard has gone bad, what make and exact model is the laptop?

Hi all.
I am getting a blue screen error of: stop: c0000135" and "winsrv was not found". It is not due to installing SP2 or any type of service pack. It happened after I used RegCure, i believe that it corrupted my registry and now it cannot find the winsrv. I was wondering how i would go on about fixing it. At the moment I am using a Linux Live CD and I have access to all my files on my hard drives including the windows partition, so if there is a way to revert to old registry settings through that please let me know.
FYI: I am using XP x64.
Thank you.

Another question/puzzle. Windows 8.1 Enterprise.

I clean installed W8.1 three days ago, and the first thing I did was bring it up to date with all the offered updates. All installed successfully and I thought no more of it. At some point after this I made a system image backup, which today I have restored to. When I now look at the "classic" windows update screen it says I have never checked for updates and none are installed. Forcing a check for updates brings only two up as can be seen in the pictures. If I go to "view installed updates" then there is a lot of stuff in there, whih I assume could be the previously installed original batch.
I'm guessing this is normal behaviour but it seems slightly odd (the on screen messages at least)

A:No update history says "never checked" & "never installed"

Not odd... Considering that is a "clean install"(albeit with integrated updates) - thus no update history (file) exists.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed.

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

Hi,
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.

when i click on USB configuration in bios i see the following:

usb mass storage device reset delay (20 sec)

no usb mass storage device detected

between the two lines is the exact script from the bios page
should it say usb devices enabled :none ?
could that be why NONE of my usb's are working?

if so, now what?

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:Random BSOD "Clock interrupt not received on a secondary processor"

Your crash may have been caused by stop-0x101-clock_watchdog_timeout

STOP 0x101: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT troubleshtg

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hi I was wondering if this Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 / 2.5 GHz processor would fit into my emachines t3512. Recently I upgraded it's intel celeron D processor to a intel pentium 4 processor. So I was looking at what would fit with that LGA socket and Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 seems to fit that socket. Here is a link of the processor. My desktop board is D101GGC

A:Will "Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 / 2.5 GHz processor" fit in my Emachines t3512?

No, it won't work. That board only supports Celeron D, Pentium D, and Pentium 4 boards according to the intel spec page: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d101ggc/sb/CS-025906.htm.

I think you should really consider upgrading to a new motherboard or get a whole new system altogether because the upgrade path for your current board is a dead end.

Hey.

I'm trying to create a macro, through Auto HotKey, that will automatically set the processor affinity of some program.

It's problematic because the only way I know of, is to right click the process in Task Manager. The process's location changes each time, so I can't direct the macro to it. (I'm directing it by providing pixel coordinates, XY)

Is there a file, or static window - the processes window in Task Manager isn't static, it's constantly updating - that can give me access to the processor affinity window?

Thanks.

Hi Guys,

Keep receiving the BSOD and the error message states "Clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor" seems to happen at random times regardless of what I'm doing on the computer.

I thought it was the CPU initially so I ran intelburn test three times (standard through to very high) everything went smoothly with CPU reaching temps of 55 degrees.
Also ran Sf/scannow in elevated command prompt - no issues there.
I don't have anything OC'd.
Ran malwarebytes no objects detected
I've read it could be a motherboard issue but no idea how to test it...

Thanks!

A:BSOD "Clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor"

To properly analyse 0x101 bugchecks we need Kernel Memory Dumps instead of minidumps, we'll come to that later on if we can't find anything.

Lets give Prime95 a shot, run it for around 2 hours.

I have Windows Vista Home Premium bit and an AMD X Dual-Core QL- processor GHz In Vista Power options there are settings under Processor Power Management Minimum and Maximum Processor State What are the optimal settings for these options I fully understand that one "Optimal" and Maximum Setting Processor Minimum State might choose to have a lower maximum state when running on battery power to prolong battery life I can think Minimum and Maximum Processor State "Optimal" Setting of no reason to have the maximum state below when running plugged-in unless of course one is trying to save electricity keep the laptop cooler How does minimum state work and what is the optimal setting I know the default is but I've done a lot of Googling and cannot find an educated reason why is the default Would it be correct for me to presume that if I set it at say then the processor will never operate below of its capability or whatever of MHz is closest to capacity and will run all the way to the maximum specified state where needed In other words am I simply giving the processor the leverage to pick whatever power is required between its minimum and maximum specified states If my above assumption is correct and the processor will pick the optimum speed within the min max range why would I ever increase the minimum above - and better still why wouldn't I go right down to Having said that I read in one post that processors don't run in relative percentages - but Mhz Mhz or whatever - so if my processor can only go as low as say MHz and my max is then I guess if I set my minimum anywhere between and it would never go below Mhz Thanks in advance for any help Dave

A:Minimum and Maximum Processor State "Optimal" Setting

Hello Dave,

It's just basically a way to save energy in both the "Battey" and "Plugged in" states of your laptop by setting a "Minimum" and "Maximum" percentage of what your CPU can run at. Windows 7 will automatically keep your CPU running at "Minimum" when the computer is idle. Windows 7 will also automatically increase the CPU's percentage to handle any workload as needed up to "Maximum", and then automatically lower the percentage (no less then "Minimum") as the workload decreases or finishes.

Here are some recommended settings, but it really depends on your needs and wants.

Plugged in: 5% MIN & 100% MAX
Battery: 1% MIN & 100% MAX (or lower MAX to save more battery, but slower performance under heavy workloads)

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I sporadically receive this BSOD when playing CPU/Graphic intensive games like IV etc. and I have attempted multiple times to get a crash dump file to analyze it but apparently the minidump folder is not under the Windows directory and there is no .*dmp file. Computer works fine other then that BSOD, when that BSOD happens, before it whatever i'm playing hangs and the sound skips and I get that BSOD. Event viewer also shows no entries.

Hey.

I'm trying to create a macro, through Auto HotKey, that will automatically set the processor affinity of some program.

It's problematic because the only way I know of, is to right click the process in Task Manager. The process's location changes each time, so I can't direct the macro to it. (I'm directing it by providing pixel coordinates, XY)

Is there a file, or static window - the processes window in Task Manager isn't static, it's constantly updating - that can give me access to the processor affinity window?

Thanks.

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

I am using Windows 7 on my laptop and I have question about when to use "Home", "Work" and "Public" profile.

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

A:"A clock interrupt was not received by a secondary processor"

Sorry, it's not letting me edit the message anymore but here's some more info:
1. regarding the most recent bluescreen, it seems to have reset some of my ATI catalyst settings. But the thing is, I always watch videos with GPU accel without problems. The ATI drivers stay updated as well, I'm good about that. Running the latest drivers right now and the first two BSODs happened while on the previous set. It still could be video card I guess, maybe it's something else like RAM or mobo or CPU, I have no idea. The computer seems to freeze/BSOD at random points in time which seems unrelated to each other, however it's important to note that it has never frozen/BSOD when not being used. It has only ever done so while I was using it, and also usually when the system utilization (RAM, CPU, etc.) was not really very high at all, just average stuff like browsing the net (all of the freezes plus one of the BSODs when on mediafire), watching a youtube vid (once) or just randomly while actually doing nothing other than clicking the About tab of Prime95 (just moments AFTER prime95 was already stopped after an 8 hour run, although during the test there were no problems and the CPU did not get anywhere near as hot as largeFFT, and it's never actually crashed during a Prime95 test).

Hopefully I've given some useful information...please ask me anything else if clarification or details are needed. Like I said I can't do too much as far as opening up the PC and messing around goes, but it was setup and tested by professionals and then bugchecked by them for hardware problems once as well...I donno how thorough they were since there is clearly some mild problem which seems to be becoming worse after all these months ...

Not sure if this is relevant but there are absolutely no software/malware issues causing this, since I am very good about that (very safe internet user, windows firewall+hardware firewall, anti-malware program (malware bytes anti-malware), windows defender and avira antivirus). It could be a driver issue I suppose but I'm thinking it's probably hardware? Just a gut feeling. Updating drivers + BIOS did nothing it seems. I don't have any malfunctioning/incompatible with Win7 hardware or drivers either.

I've done things like sfc /scannow before quite a few times. Everything seems in check really, nothing seems to stand out as being problematic, yet this is occurring more and more frequently as time goes on.

I got this error message: Print processor doesn't exist in my Win 8.1 x64 system.
Per suggestions found on the net, I checked that winprint.dll is present in Windows\System32\spool\prtprocs\x64

Another tip that I've found
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Print Processors\winprint
At that registry key, in the right window, is "Driver" of the type REG_SZ and is the "Data" winprint.dll?

In my system the "Print Processor" has no sub-folder. I changed the value to winprint.dll but couldn't find out how to change the type to "Driver". In case somebody tells me that, should I do it in "Print Processor" or should I create a sub-folder "\winprint" ?

Actually, I don't have any physical printer, I'd used and would like to use PDF creators (Adobe, Nitro, Wondershare)

The following error occurs: .txt"

or

The following error occurs: txtfile"

Why?

The command above work fine under WinXP

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

hi,

OK, this is a weird one.

I wanted to move the "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos" folders to another HDD. I moved the "My Documents" Folder to this HDD without a problem but the others I accidentally set the whole HDD as the folder (if that makes sense). So now the music, videos and pictures folders are set to this HDD and dont have an actual folder to change the properties of. Therein lies my dilema.

If anyone can offer any advice on this curly issue it would be greatly appreciated.

You have a backup from before the problem started? a win 7 dvd to do a repair install?
