Things you can do before calling your technician
1) Updates are the most neglected and the most needed user action to take
before calling your technician. First go to Microsoft's update page :
Do the automatic scan then do ALL of the updates. This can take some time and
may require numerous reboots.
2)After all of operating system updates have been completed, now its time for the
manufacturer's updates. Everybody who manufactures computers has an update page.
I'll try to list some of them for you.
AppleCare Service & Support [USA]
Compaq Software and
HP Support &
Welcome to MSN.com
Do the same thing as the Microsoft Updates until all have been completed.
Those three search engines will find the companies that haven't been listed.
3)What's a Bio's and how do I flash it? is a common question. Your computers
BIOS resides on a chip on your mother board controlling the POST (Pre Operating
System Test) which checks memory, Keyboard, Mouse configuration, etc.
To flash it you first have to down load the Flash software which will want to
write to your A Disk. Once the data has been written to that disk just shut down
the computer and reboot with the Disk you just made.
WARNING! Make absolute sure to get the exact BIOS for your specific system.
Screwing this up most likely will result in system boot up failure. (the
