Updating bios without windows
So, without getting into too much detail, I'm having issues with my latest build. I have it down to two very possible issues based on some research online: - The Windows 7 installation disk is bad - The BIOS on the Asus mobo need to be updated I'm currently in the process of downloading a fresh copy of Windows 7 and will creating a bootable USB to install on my PC.
In the even that doesn't work out, how would I update the BIOS on the mobo?
I dont think it will run without windows also running. Press the notebook's power button and immediately hold down the Windows key and the B key until the notebook reacts and begins the BIOS recovery.
Hopefully that will recover the corrupt BIOS with the fresh copy that is on the flashdrive.
Well, I'm going through the BIOS on the mobo, and I noticed something when I went to look at the RAM settings.
Would this be causing me some problems, and if so, how do I fix this? I have an ASUS Mo Bo as well and changed mine from auto to 1600MHz when doing my overclock settings. It could be showing the rated speed for each stick. It could be showing the rated speed for each stick.
Your computer's BIOS - Basic Input/Output System - is a chip on the motherboard which contains enough information to allow it to start up before the main operating system begins to load.
Here's everything you need to know about how to update a PC BIOS, whether traditional or the newer UEFI standard.

HIGHLY RECCOMEND that you be plugged into a known good battery backup before you try a bios update. Have you thought abut getting the files burnt to a DVD and then boot from that ?
I'm guessing it's a Win7 Pro upgrade download that you have - this may not work anyway as it really needs a working Vista installation to run from.
I need to update it so i can use the "boot from removable devices" option. HP Slim Line 3000 series Fisrt you should just try using either F9 or Esc while booting and already have your usb plugged in before you power up.
Those two keys are often used by HP for there boot menu options.
