HP/Compaq :: DV6-2190US BIOS Update

Apr 24, 2010

HP has posted a BIOS update on their website for the DV6-2190US laptop. The update is listed as F.1AA and claims to "improve system fan behavior". This laptop has a quad core I7, 720 QM clarksfield processor so anything to better control heat would be good to consider. I am usually never hesitiant to update a BIOS, even on the numerous laptops I have owned, but....I have noticed HP had some of their BIOS updates bricking their laptop lately.

Has anyone flashed their DV6-2190 with this update yet?

HP/Compaq :: Best BIOS Update For DV6000T

Feb 17, 2009

Any one BIOS update known to be better than the rest?

I am reading a good deal on the boards, and people like F.16, but I don't know which would work best in my situation. My main issue is being able to see the 3.12 GB of RAM after I put 2 2GB sticks in.

I have XP MCE , T7200 which came with the DV6000T bought in Jan 07.

I just want it to run cooler and faster, so far it has been a workhorse.

Which would be the best choice? [url]

HP/Compaq :: Messed Up My6910p After BIOS Update

Nov 15, 2009

I thought it was a good idea to update my BIOS from F0.A to F17.

I am now stuck with the fan constant running and I have checked some other threads and found that you can switch this off in the BIOS.

I have checked and it is already switched off!

I tried to restore to go back to the old BIOS but it seems I am f****d. Not possible.

Are there tricks to go back to the original firmware.

Are there third party software that can stop the fan turning all the time.

HP/Compaq :: Presario V6130us Blue Screen After Bios Update

Mar 9, 2010

My troubles are as follows:
I started working on a presario v6130us laptop with a blue screen. The owner thought it was due to a virus when she opened a email. I went and wiped the HD and reinstalled windows XP pro. Had the darn thing working nicely.

Then I thought he computer was running a lil slow, so I decide to update the bios. From (I believe) v.07 to ver.29 from the hp website. At the restart, it never restarted, so I restarted it by pressing power button. Went into the same ol blue screen loop. The stop message is 0x0000007b. I looked that variable up on the microsoft webpage. It says it is a Win 2000 unmountable boot device. Prior to this message it was Stop 0x000000ED.

Does anyone know how to roll the bios back, or what could be causing this problem? I have done a quick HD test. so far it has passed and is now doing the "executing" test @ 20% complete. B4 the bios update, the test would say FAIL 1- 07.

Acer :: Update BIOS And Got BSOD

Sep 6, 2009

I have Acer Aspire 5315 and was running Bios v1.33. It has been running warm for sometime and thought an updated BIOS would help.

I tried the ACER site but didn't see any BIOS updates listed for XP. I have XP Pro on it now.

I followed a different link and found BIOS 1.45 so i Flashed it using WinFlash.

After it completed it shut down, i waited a couple of min. and powered back up, when i did i saw the BSOD for about 2 seconds and then goes to selective startup (Normal, Safe, Safe w/networking etc...)

I have not tried safe mode yet but in normal it just goes back to that screen again.

I saw the thread on using the FN+ESC mode but not sure if i really need to do that.

what I should do to restore it back to 1.33? I have to check my external HD but i think i still have that 1.33 version saved that i used when i did it the first time.

Lenovo ThinkPad L R/SL :: How To Update BIOS Without Using A CD

Jan 30, 2014

I have recently decided to upgrade my RAM from 2GB to 4GB. After installing, I booted up my computer to find that it would not recognize the new memory. After doing a bit of troubleshooting, I decided to try and update the BIOS, as the version was from 2010. I downloaded the BIOS update boot CD application from lenovo, burned a disc, and on reboot I found that the boot order did not have CD listed on it. Here's the catch: I don't have the supervisor password. This is a hand-me-down laptop, and I have tried to find the password to no avail. This is the current boot order: USB drive, Hard drive. 
 
My question is, can I either create a BIOS update disc using a USB, or update the BIOS some other way?
 
I understand that it is impossible to recover the supervisor password without having it serviced (which I would rather not do, even if I have to send my RAM back to Crucial)
 
My system specs:
Thinkpad L512
Bios version: 1.04
Bios date: 2010-3-26
Embeded Controller Version: 1.01
Windows 7 32 bit

Dec 8, 2009

I hope I am using the right part of this forum to ask this... Heres my problem: I bought new Dell studio XPS 1340 (CPU: I Core2Duo T9300, GPU: GeForce 9500M (GF 9400MG + GF 9200MGS, HDD: 320GB, 7.2k, RAM: 4GB)

I downloaded A11 BIOS update, but the setup wont recognize my current BIOS. When I load into the BIOS I see, that its really rev. A07, also it has header from Dell inc.

Dell :: XPS M1730 BIOS Update / Flash

Feb 6, 2009

I have a Dell XPS M1730 with a BIOS revision of A03--the latest revision available on the Dell Drivers & Downloads page is A10.

My dilemma is that I am not sure if it is safe to skip the revisions A06 and A09 and just go straight for revision A10.

Also, is revision A10 any better than A09 or A06? Please, I really need somebody's advice on this matter.
Reasons for this BIOS update:

* Upgrading to two 250GB Momentus hard drives and run them under RAID 0.

* Planning on dual-booting Windows Vista 32-bit and Vista 64-bit (need help on this one as well, but let's just focus on the current matter) .....

Since I updated my bios I have noticed that my fans are pretty much always on high and that the heat coming out the back is a lot hotter than it used to be. Granted, I have been using the computer with my big monitor with the lid closed more now but even when I'm not doing that it's still just as hot. Has anyone else noticed this since the update?

Dell :: Warning About A04 Bios Update For 1749

May 7, 2010

I have a dell 1749 with I7 and the ATI graphics card and loved it till today when I applied the recommended A04 version bios update.
It stopped at 69 out of 70 in the install process for over an hour and then I had a brick!

Dell have agreed to replace the unit as it is less than a month old and totally fried, it wont even get to the dell logo stage which means you can't revert to the previous bios.

It may have been that it was already faulty but I would be very wary of updating the bios at this time.
