Updating the laptops bios software

02-Nov-2016 22:20

What I'm looking for from this thread is guidance in what I need to do to troubleshoot this problem. BIOS says that my VGA Adapter is NVIDIA Ge Force GTX 770M. The first thing to identify when updating your BIOS is what platform you’re system uses; the most common being Award, AMI, and Phoenix, which we will go into further detail later.

It is important that you have a specific reason for updating your BIOS, doing so when there is no need is an unwanted risk that should not be taken into consideration.This happened for several different games, while things like Chrome and Word worked fine. I tried to open NVIDIA's own control panel, where (in my system tray) it said that a driver update was available. My laptop has literally not moved, so I can't imagine the physical card being knocked loose. Possibly useful specs Processor: Intel(R) Core i7-4800MQ @ 2.70 GHz RAM: 16.0 GB 64-bit Windows 7 Graphics card is NVIDIA Geforce 770M, 3GB im guessing its a Dell well let me make it very clear and please let it be once and for all the GPU has stopped working it is not a software issue the only option you have is to get the motherboard replaced thats it i solved another problem here with the same problem please dont listen to any other suggestions youll be wasting time if you still have your warranty..great if not...youll have to spend on a new motherboard exact same thing happened to my Inspiron n5110 as well im guessing its a Dell well let me make it very clear and please let it be once and for all the GPU has stopped working it is not a software issue the only option you have is to get the motherboard replaced thats it i solved another problem here with the same problem please dont listen to any other suggestions youll be wasting time if you still have your warranty..great if not...youll have to spend on a new motherboard exact same thing happened to my Inspiron n5110 as well 1. You sound like you've had a bad experience, and I'm sorry for that. I have read about other solutions to similar problems that don't involve full replacement and jumping to that conclusion without rigorous troubleshooting is not smart. Everything ran fine....using the onboard Intel graphics. You will need to download and unzip this DOS image (do NOT use your own DOS image) here.Once it has completed formatting your drive, open up the USB flashdrive in My Computer.

Once it has completed formatting your drive, open up the USB flashdrive in My Computer.

For the Award platform, the BIOS file should be named “bios.bin”; for AMI, it should be named “bios.rom”; and for Phoenix, it should be named “bios.bin” The final preparation stage needed for our USB flashdrive is the flash utility itself, which varies according to the platform.
