I also tried changing the RAM stick with many other sticks,,, still same result. Well, I guess that even with 20 years of PC experience, you never stop learning!! So don't panic and wait a few minutes longer to make sure that the update process was terminated. Up to now, I was sure that a knackered BIOS will not even boot a floppy (remember, it stands for Basic I/O System).
I had the bios ROM and the bios update utility on the Floppy disk, and added a command line to the file to run the update utility and load the bios ROM automatically- as the screen is completely black. The update didn't go completely fine, because the verification failed (at the 100% point of the process), but the computer is booting properly and the BIOS status bar is showing that it is updated to the latest version.
Note: the BIOS manufacturer AWARD have been taken over in 1998 by his competitor PHOENIX. - First aid Attention: this Howto describes only a BIOS update according to standard, how it should work on most mainboards with AMI-BIOS, AWARD-BIOS or PHOENIX-BIOS. But now I learn that even with no video on the monitor, you can boot into DOS with a BIOS flash tool on the booting media!
So do not be surprised if you find both company names together on the BIOS setup screen. the last chance is to buy a new BIOS-Chip, or to reprogram the old BIOS-Chip. Preparation - Create a safe environment for a BIOS-Update 2. I cannot guarentee that it will work on your PC and I assume no liability for any damages! I even tried to extract the BIOS update utility from Sony that updated me to the latest BIOS in the first place and I don't see the BIOS in the exe file to replace. That's [email protected]: Thank you for the quick reply!
In order to update this low-level software, you normally have to “flash the BIOS“, which will replace the old software with the new version.
If you bought a computer from Dell, HP, etc, you normally just have to download an EXE file and run it to flash the BIOS.
