I just recently acquired a HP Compaq presario sr2034nx computer with these specs: A8m2n-la motherboard, 2.4 Ghz amd processes, 1 gig of ram, geoforce 6150 Le onboard graphics card, and a windows xp operating system After I ran the Hp recovery program to set it back to factory default, I proceeded to update the bios through windows with this update: Software Download Index?softwareitem=pv-56155-1&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en After the about 3 minutes, the bios update process gave a message requiring to restart the computer.recently I did a bios update on my laptop (Lenovo z50-75) and it had to shut down to install so it did and when I went to turn It on it was just a black screen I could hear the fan and everything starting up but no display.Any answers Have you mashed all the keys that might lead you into BIOS as soon as you give it power? It's beginning to sound like a brick but you might strike lucky..action_button.action_button:active.action_button:hover.action_button:focus.action_button:hover.action_button:focus .count.action_button:hover .count.action_button:focus .count:before.action_button:hover .count:before.u-margin-left--sm.u-flex.u-flex-auto.u-flex-none.bullet.

A friend brought over his Dell Vostro 3550 that he’d just upgraded to Windows 10.After the upgrade, the machine would show the spinning dots of the Windows 10 boot, but then go to a black screen before the login screen showed up.
I know the monitor is working because I plugged in my laptop to test it. question was how to update if the screen don't give any display.Please understand that branded motherboards are not always the same as the retail version, there are often differences.If that doesn't do the trick, it's time to go shopping for a new board. And failures can occur even if you do everything correctly.A BIOS update should only be done when it specifically addresses a problem you are having.And then only after serious consideration if it is worth the risk.
