Preferred Solution: how to know the correct version of bios for update

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 know the correct version of bios for update

My rules of the thumb when it comes to bios updates (flash)

1. Always use the motherboard manual instruction to do a bios flash.

2. Only do a bios flash if the problem you are having is listed in the bios information as a repair for the problem you are having.

3. Never do a bios flash just because their is a new one. If your not having a problem leave the bios alone.

Example: Here is my bios on the system I'm typing from now.

Brand American Megatrends Inc.
Version 0502
Date 11/16/2010

I'm not having any problems so I leave the 2010 bios alone.
If I do get a problem 99.9% of the time it's not caused by the bios version.

As far as I know you can't flash the bios from within Windows 7.
Your bios is installed on/in the motherboard not in Window 7 registry.

On some motherboards if a bios flash goes a muck your motherboard will become unusable. Possibly the motherboard manufacture will repair it.

Driver update programs like drivermax will most likely do nothing but cause problem. Install a bunch of PUP's and be very difficult to remove completely.

Hello,I need a quick info. I would like to update my BIOS. The current version is F.00  - 07/03/2013 and I would like to update it to the F.27 Rev.A - 25/07/2016 version. However, Win 10 (which is the OS I'm using) isn't listed as a supported OS for this BIOS (the latest supported version for Win is Win 8.1 64 bit). I would like to know if I can still download and use the BIOS F.27 Rev.A 25/07/2016 version even though the latest listed OS is Win 8.1 64 bit, while I'm using Win 10 64 bit?Thanks.

Hey i have a alienware Area 51, with a bios version of A03, how do i update it to A10? or A11?

A:How do i update my Bios version A03 to A11 or A10?

First you have to go to whatever site it is for your pc and see if there is an update. If there is download it then run it.

Some free advice. If your bios is working fine, and there`s no need to update it, then dont.

It could make things worse.

Can someone please direct me to a site to update a bios version.

chipset 440lx
bios v1.6s
slot 2 pII

I've searched but keep getting lost.

The reason I think I need the update is that I'm going from NT4 to W2K. I have imaged the hard drive using ghost, reinstalled the hard drive but it keeps rebooting itself after the initial starting windows screen.

Just becasue you are changing OS's doesn't mean you need to flash your BIOS. The info you gave us will not help you find the update either. You need the BIOS number from boot up. If you go to they will give you tips on finding this information.

I have an ASUS X54C Laptop.

When I bought the laptop the BIOS version was 204.

I see that BIOS version 210 for my model laptop is now available from the ASUS website. I have never updated BIOS before and am nervous about this

EDIT: From system specs, this is what the full description of the current BIOS version is:

BIOS Version: American Megatrends Inc. K54C.204, 2012-01-20

So I have downloaded the latest BIOS V. 210. It downloads as a ZIPPED folder named K54CAS210

Can anyone advise on the correct method to extract, & install, the latest BIOS version, and highlight the risks I might face?

Thanks in advance

A:BIOS version .. to update or not

There should be information with the download about what is updated. I always read that. It's a shame if a BIOS update fails but even worse if there's nothing you really needed in the new code. Also you should check if there's a way to revert to the current version even if the new install has an error.

I haven't had a PC go dead doornail on me. But I had it happen on a $240 external modem. Not fun.

Ive installed the auto detect for Dell support and it tells me my Inspiron P39F has A02 bios, but I cannot find anywhere on my products support page if it needs a bios upgrade.  Someone from support please tell me?  
Im asking because the backlit keyboard settings seem to get reset to default after a restart.  (Id prefer the backlit keyboard to remain on for the 15 minute selection, and I do know how to adjust this, but that setting seems to default back to 1 minute after a restart or sleep.  Is this normal or can I permanently adjust the backlit keyboard settings?

So I bought what I thought what the full version of Windows 7 Pro online for the student discount for $65. I got it all installed and the activation key wouldn't work.

Long story short I got the upgrade version on accident. So I got that refunded and I'm about to just go buy Home Premium. I need to install it. Do I need to uninstall Pro before I install Home Premium? Or will it just get rid of it for me when I install it?

No need to uninstall. The new installer will clear the disk.

I tried to boot the above Envy Notebook today (8th July) and the BIOS was corrupted. So I successfully flashed it via USB with the latest version, just published yesterday the 7th July. It may have been a pure coincidence around the date but was there some vulnerability in the previous BIOS ?("- Provides improved security of UEFI code and variables." ) Or is it more likely just to be my machine? (I haven't used the machine in a week or more, it was in hibernation.) Is there a changelog anywhere?

type msinfo32 into the start/search field and hit Enter. There you`ll see what version and manufacturer you have. Then go to the website of that manufacturer and see whether they have any newer version. They usually provide the necessary tools for scanning and updating.
You can also check at the website of your PC manufacturer.

Anyway, i've also had trouble determining my currrent BIOS version.

It also says at the bottom...

And in dxdiag window, it says...

BIOS: Rev2.00

Thanks in advance :slurp:

Windows has been running fine for some time but attempt to update to Anniversary fails The update runs fine until the point after restart where it states The machine will restart several times soon into that sequence when nbsp attempting a restart the machine switches itself off instead When I then switch it back on manually the update is lost and the system resets itself to the previous Windows version A Microsoft technician worked for hours before concluding that I would have to do a full clean BIOS to 10 issue? Anniversary fails version Windows update - WIndows installation after which all files and applications would be lost and needed to be reinstalled nbsp I have been wondering if the faulty restart behaviour is related to the BIOS somehow and I have had it reinstalled from HPs site with no change So my questions areCan BIOS be the cause Btw I have turned the fast restart option under power schemes nbsp off I note that I got a legacy BIOS installed Is UEFI available for this laptop and would that make a difference If I do install UEFI will Windows and applications run as before or could other issues arise Windows 10 update to Anniversary version fails - BIOS issue?

What is the most current /correct version of SP3 for Win XP? Mine is SP3 v. 3311. If this is the current version then no problem. If it is not then to get the current version should I first uninstall what I have, and then let MS update find the current version. I don't really want to do that unless what I have is not the most current. etc, etc.

A:Solved: correct version of SP 3, In Home XP

A MS service pack is pretty much like a CD sitting on a shelf. Once they have made it available for download from Windows Update and offer to send you a free CD (for a small shipping and handling fee) it isn't going to change. From that point on, updates and patches are made available for download from Windows update.

There is the automatic update which only updates necessary files on your particular installation, and the download for IT which contains everything, (but still only updates necessary files on your particular installation).

A:does ASUS P7P55D motherbored last Bios version (Version 2003) stable?

It's probably a good thing that you are scared.

A BIOS generally should not be updated unless you are having issues and have a strong reason to believe that a BIOS update will resolve those issues.

Why do you want to update the BIOS?

Hi Guys,

I fell from grace when my computer got a really bad virus and had Win7 re-installed, and hastily. Problem was, I didn't check the credentials of the guys wj?ho installed it, and it turns out it's a pirated copy.

I really want to rectify this, as I don't ever inrtend to install Win8 or 10, and want to keep Win 7 Professional probably for ever. I'm down with the system, like it, love it and it suits me fine, the only bug-bear is that it's not correct or proper.

Wanting to rectify this, having bought a legit package of Win7 Professional, can I just install it on top of the one I have and get to keep all the files? Of does it need to start with a clean install?

A:How can I install correct version of Win7 over a copy?

Let's have a look at what you've got at present - it will affect any advice we give...

Please followthis tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.

Ignore errors produced when clicking on theCopy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup filesfor some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to yourresponse.

Please also statethe Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one)on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOTquote the Key on the sticker!

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.

My computer was in sleep mode, but when I went back to it several hours later, it was turned off. I'm not sure if there was a power interruption or some1 hit the button on the tower or whatever. Anyway, when I tried to reboot it, it loaded the BIOS and then I got the dreaded BSOD -- it's just a black screen w/ a flashing cursor.

So I pulled out my Win7 installation CD (which is what I used to install Win7 on this computer) and tried to repair the installation. It tells me that the version on the disc is not the same as the version on the computer!

Is there anything else I can do besides reinstalling Windows and therefore all of my other programs?

I am having severe overheating issues on my Pavilion dv4-260 and have read that updating the bios might help. I have version F0.b but some sources have indicated another version.  The HP website says nothing when I check for updates.  Can anyone tell me what the current bios should be?

A:correct bios for Pavilion dv4-2160us

Latest version posted for your model is F.0F -under Windows 7 driver list. I doubt that a BIOS update would solve overheating issues. An older desktop here suffers from overheating in Windows 10 and I believe it is due to no AMD graphics driver for Win 10. The graphics card is older & no support for Win 10 from AMD. Using the basic Microsoft driver. Probably will be rolling this machine back to Windows 7.

An eSATA bracket came with my GA-EP45-UD3P Gigabyte motherboard. It has a molex to SATA power, 2 eSATA ports and an eSATA to normal SATA cable so I can run internal hard drives externally. It is really nice.

My board has 2 (two) SATA controllers. The ICH10-R controls 6 ports and a Gigabyte (or JMicron chip) controller if for 2 others. I have tried this bracket connected to the Gigabyte controller in AHCI and it works fine. I also tried it in IDE mode and it works a little different. In both cases I have "safely remove hardware" option.

I have not used eSATA much until now. What is correct setting in the BIOS for eSATA? What if I only had one SATA controller like a lot of boards? What would you have the BIOS set to in that case? (IDE or AHCI)


A:What is the correct setting in BIOS for eSATA?

I'm using sata as IDE, and having no problems - i asked seagate about enabling AHCI and there reply was it is unnecessary, as its built into the sata hard drives now, and not necessary. I also have the intel ich9 sata controller plus the j-micron, so I turn the j-micron off in the bios and use just use the intel controller.
Just added a couple of hours later:
I have one external esata hard drive -160gb seagate hard drive - forgot to mention although I implied, as such, but personally i like to see things myself before believing. Two internal a 250gb and 500gb seagate

On my P5E MB there are two places where the Vcore voltages are displayed in the BIOS.

One is in the O/C tweaking section where you actually input the voltage during over clocking and the second is in the Power section of the BIOS but this is just a display and you cannot change anything here.

Now to my question. There are two different values displayed. Which one is the correct Core voltage, the one in the Tweak section or the one in the Power section? Right now I have 1.62150 Volts in the Tweak section but only 1.552 in the Power section. If the Power section is the true value then I have a lot more room to play.

I've got a Gigabyte P35 DS3R with 4 gigs of Crucial Ballistix PC 8500 DDR2 1066 ram. The mobo loaded up nicely when I installed it. The ram I had at the time Crucial PC5300 DDR2 533 worked well. Since then I bought the PC 8500 DDR2 1066. When I go into the bios to overclock the BIOS shows the ram as 800. I cannot find a way to correct it in the bios, which is Award. I've clocked to 800 and everything is running nicely, but I'm not sure why the ram shows as DDR2 800 and not 1066. Can anyone help?

That "USB keyboard support" is the setting you need to have enabled. If it may try a new port. If that does not work you may try the latest bios. If you have the latest bios, you may try using the front panel USB or changing ports for the front panel and the keyboard in different combinations.

I just got a new P55 board and had the same issue but a flash cured it.

I would try a different port or mobo header if you have not done it already.

Hello all.
Running windows 10 pro 64 bit.
I've updated from Version 1511 to the anniversary update, 1607.
Or at least, I thought I did.
The update went well, no hiccups, no errors. Used windows update, let it downloaded and install and rebooted. Alas, system still shows OS Version 1511.
Used update again, same thing, rebooted, 1511.
Went to the windows site, downloaded the windows10upgrade9252.exe, ran it, same exact issue, rebooted, still showing version 1511.
Error logs show no issues. Disabled all external drives, turned off anti-virus, etc, repeated, rinsed, rebooted, still version 1511.
Only think I've not done is burned an ISO to DVD and updated from that.
Any clues as to what's going on?

Can you check to see what OS version you have? Check in settings > system > OS build. It should show something like 14393.5 or 14393.10

Hi For several years I have a Vostro It has always been reliable However in recent months I have if 430 only connected USB device correct Vostro NO (any is and USB starts BIOS) a Vostro 430 starts only if NO USB is connected (any USB device and correct BIOS) problem Vostro 430 starts only if NO USB is connected (any USB device and correct BIOS) at startup just worse I specify now I ve done every test that came to mind and I found on the forums So for some time I had to unplug all USB on my frontage so that the PC starts Those behind were still connected It was never start the first time but after three or four presses of the button Failure to find a solution I accepted the situation But this time I must remove all usb without exception Even the mouse receiver completely prevented from starting However if there is anything it starts from the first press of the button For now I brought all my connectors on a usb hub that I disconnected before starting Some details on the non-starting Press button gives no sign of life No noise nothing on the screen etc So as if the push boutton was broken but this is not the case But if I plug my usb hub and pushes the button the LEDs s on the hub illuminate and stay on LEDs are off initially if I disconnected and reconnected power What it is not The bios The boot is only on a DD Nothing points to the USB A defective device The problem occurs as soon as there is one any peripheral that is plugged into any USB input I do not remember having updated the bios At least not recently I make a hypothesis can be absurd but I did not see anything on the internet about this As the problem worsens with time I wonder if this might not be the CR battery that should change this is the original one Maybe one usb drops the voltage needed by the EEPROM to launch startup The battery would be solicited for a few milliseconds before the power supply takes over Finally I make the long test Dell Passed all except a secondary hard drive it will take me one day change I have nothing on it so nothing urgent I also bought a new battery I expect in a few days Thank you for your help

I want to upgrade my bios for my H-Alvorix-RS880-uATX motherboard but the bios listed on the download page are:  H-RS880-UATX MotherboardAndN-Alvorix-RS880 MotherboardBut my board says on it that its a.H-Alvorix-rs880-uatx. Which one am I supposed to pick?

A:What is the correct bios download for a H-Alvorix-RS880-uATX...

Hi, The specifications for the HP p6802 indicate that this model has the N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX (Alvorix) motherboard. HP did recall and replace the Alvorix mother in some PCs so it's very possible that the posted documentation doesn't reflect those actions. Post the motherboard part number. Do a Google on the "part number".

I have a windows 10 tablet and the clock is constantly losing time by significant amounts. Just a few minutes after starting the clock slows by as much as 10min and eventually gets to several hours slow.

Yes, the time and timezone are set correctly in settings.

Yes, it is set up to sync with

The really puzzling thing is that the bios/uefi clock is correct and stays correct. So in my limited knowledge it seems the problem must be with windows.

Any ideas how to fix this?

A:Clock constantly loses time, correct in bios

Boot to Safe Mode and see if it still happens. If not then something is starting at boot and continuing to run that is causing the problem. Use Clean Boot to isolate the cause of the problem.

Hi Guys,

This one has been bugging me for the past few updates for Java Version 8 - the "Update" tab is missing for the Java Control Panel program.

This was (apparently) a bug in earlier version, but is supposedly fixed.

I'm running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and have had this issue with at least the last three updates to the Java JRE Version 8 64-bit.

I've tried uninstalling, cleaning the registry and making sure any leftover Java-related files are gone, but once I reinstall Java, the problem is still there.

Can anyone else confirm this issue?

Hello,  newbee here.   Looking for some help with a gateway laptop.  Had a shutdown prompt to update.  Hit that fun button to shut down and came back to a usless laptop.  The computer seems to fire up correctly.  It takes me to the password screen and waits for my input.  When I enter the correct password the system sends message that "you can't sign in to your PC right now.  Go to to fix the problem, or try the last password you used on this PC. "
Help.  I do not have any restore disc for this unit.  Is there a way into safe mode to disable the password?  or can I restore to before the last update?  I need past this screen to try anything though.
Thanks for the help

A:windows update from 8 to 8.1 will not allow access with correct password?

The error that you've received is saying that (most likely) you're not entering the right password.
Go to and get them to reset your password.
This may help to reset the system (and will wipe everything off the system):
- at the login screen, click on the icon in the lower right
- hold down the "Shift" key and then click on "Restart"
- continue to hold the "Shift" key until the system boots into the recovery mode
- Once in recovery mode, click on "Troubleshoot", then of "Reset my PC" (these may not be the exact words)
Worst case, contact Gateway for a set of recovery disks.

My wife's laptop rebooted automatically to apply a Windows 7 automatic update and now it says the password is incorrect.

She has had the same password for several years and uses it every day. It is her middle name so she has not forgotten it and it does not use capitals. Caps Lock is defintely off (although we have tried it with it on also!).

We do not have a password boot disk.

I have read about password recovey tools but logically they would not help as we know the password anyway.

Why would the password suddenly be rejected after the update?
How do we get the computer to work again?

Neither of us are very computer literate, so I hope someone can help (in simple English )


A:Correct password rejected after automatic Windows update

Try starting in Safe Mode and see if you can enter the password and have it work there. If so, go into Start Menu->Control Panel->User Accounts->Change your password-> and choose a temporary password for now (make sure it is something you will remember). Restart Windows and see if you can login with the new password.

Hello friend .Unfortunately remove a BIOS update is not possible .The reason is because the chip directly updates and deletes the previous version making it impossible to perform the " downgrade " so to speak .If you have problems , I recommend sending it to an authorized repair center Acer . Checking, there is a new BIOS update for your model Acer. v1.11.Try to upgrade to this new version , you lose nothing by trying. You may be able to solve the problem and you have access to your computer again.  I hope you find it useful information , greetings ! ^^
