Guys, I'm really hoping someone can lend a hand here, I made the unfortunate mistake (while installing drivers on my laptop) of installing a BIOS upgrade as well it's changed from 1.30 to 1.40. Now the installation of the BIOS seemed to go smoothly, at the end of the installation the PC automatically restarted, it didn't appear as though anything was wrong, but oh boy, something is wrong.
It loads as far as the Windows loading screen, then it blue screen of death's me.
I can't even format because the Hard Drives aren't detected anymore.
Someone, PLEASE help me. I need to revert to the original BIOS that the PC came with.
One question: How come it goes to Windows loading screens but HDD is not detected? Are the HDDs shown in the BIOS but not in XP setup?
It is quite strange, actually.. The HDD's DO show up in the F2 utility menue, however, when I attempt to format I receive the message of:
Windows did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer. Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk related hardware configuration is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.
Setup cannot continue. To quit setup, press F3.
- Unfortunately, on this laptop there is no FDD.. Which is a pain in the bum..
