Problem with Bios Flashing! Help Plz!


Recommended Posts

My computer hasnt been working right ever since I switched over to my DFI motherboard, new CPU, and vdeo card. Well I tried to update the bios to maybe fix this problem. At first I tryed flashing with a floppy, and I wasnt able to figure it out. So then I tryed using winflash, and half way through, it errored. Everything was still working fine, then I restarted it and something like this comes up on the screen

 

Award BootBlock Bios V1.0

Bios Rom checksome Erro

Detecting Floppy Drive A: media

Insert Systemdisk and press enter

 

Does anybody know how I can fix this?

first try clearing cmos: shutdown -> switch off -> unplug -> wait for yellow lights to turn off -> press power 5-10 times to discharge -> set clear cmos jumper -> take out the battery (this may not be necessary) -> wait 10-20 minutes -> put battery back -> put jumper back to default -> plug in -> switch on -> power up -> then observe. if it still does it, then:

 

make a bootable floppy and stick awdflash.exe and a bios file on this floppy. then create an autoexec.bat and insert this in to it:

 

@echo off

awdflash.exe BIOSFILE.BIN /py /sn

 

replace BIOSFILE.BIN with bios filename. save to floppy.

 

stick the floppy in. it should flash.

 

please next time use the bootable cdrom for flashing (link in sig).

 

good luck.

Im a little fuzzy on this part. "Then create an autoexec.bat and insert this in to it:

 

@echo off

awdflash.exe BIOSFILE.BIN /py /sn

 

replace BIOSFILE.BIN with bios filename. save to floppy."

 

Im pretty new to this stuff, could u explain this a little more in detail because clearing the CMOS didnt work:(
