The beeps from the BIOS and graphics problem

1. when I start my computer (h9-1350), I get 6 short beeps, the computer is for a just half a minute, then continue to boot normally. I think it has something to do with a keyboard. I tried two different keyboards... KB USB provided with the computer and solar keyboard K750 from Logitech. He also sometimes appears an error message that I did not copy but the message said something about a keyboard.

2. I can't get into BIOS to do the steps from HP FAQ Web site provides for the installation of a spare video card. As does the 6 beeps from the computer and then boots normally apparently it does not the button configuration screens to access the BIOS.

The computer is a HP h9-1350 with Win8.

H9-1350 HP / Intel i7 3770 / 12 GB
Windows 8 / HP w2207 monitor / Radeon 6870
Keurig ready for a coffee or Cup of hot tea

Okay, I think that we have a fix/resolve. I found the LEGACY (just above), set it to Enable. I replaced the OEM video card with my Radeon 6870 and it booted right up less beeps. Thanks for the help.

BTW, where can I find more information about this 'new' (for me at least) UEFI BIOS? I had no idea what Win8 make this change.

Thanks again.

    I was trying to install Win7-64 on this 200-2b09WM. I flashed the bios, and now BIOS can even see hard drives.

    Have you tried to boot with the Windows disk since the last error? If this laptop comes with Windows 8, it can have Secure Boot enabled to avoid booting from cd/dvd. Check the BIOS.


    Hi, I'm going to do a clean install of win. 7 home Premium and I would like to upgrade the Bios and installing a hard drive SSD 120 GB and 2 GB of ram.

    Intel pentium dual core 2.6

    PC built Sept 2009

    I looked at the Hp site but could not find an update for my bios.  Mobo is Foxconn Eton 1.0 and the Bios is FRIEND 5.05 25.09.2009

    A scan utility (Bios Agent) indicates that there is an update, but they require payment for flashing the bios.  In case I have some concerns, and many would prefer to download Hp or Foxconn.  I looked on the sites Web from Foxconn and FRIEND, but they require a lot & a lot of information that I don't have and don't know where to find them. I was hoping someone might have the same PC to give me information.

    Also to install the disk SSD drive I brobably would need an adapter to allow the reader to 2.5 inches to fit into the drive 3.5 "bracket. Apart from this, the connectors on the SSD drives all seem to be the same.  is this correct please or will it take a SSD and a specific to my PC case and my existing hard drive adapter.

    Thank you

    Hi thanks for your help, advice and information: my PC was purchased in January 2009 is a little more than 4 years.  The upgrade would cost 130 pounds. I could not buy a decent PC with 4 GB ram and an SSD for under £500.   I do not download music or movies, or make more than a small base video editing so I'm sure that with these improvements, there will be more than enough for me.

    One thing doesn't bother me.  It seems that when buying a PC Bios updates are available for the first 2/3 years, but not thereafter.  It would not have occurred to me to look for an update of the bios, during this period just simply because I thought that they were issued only when necessary to take into account improvements and new technologies so thanks for that. you live & learn.

    I'm trying to teach me the 'nuts & bolts' repair and fix PC problems and I guess that's the main use for my PC.  Experiment with a new £500 Pc would scare me to death.

    I'm on Linux Ubuntu 13.1 without any problems on my PC Dell 9 years and XP Pro on my HP Pavilion 13, so maybe I can do my Compaq last a little longer.

    Once again thank you very much.  its part of the process of learning.  see you soon

  • How can I check if I have a virus in the BIOS and what is the difference between formatting and full format in Windows 7?


    Recently I found a rootkit on my computer, especially rootkit.tdss.tdl4. Of after I read that I got one of the best!

    I have two questions:
    Firstly - how can I check if my BIOS was hit without blinking? I read that this Trojan horse could have started exactly from the BIOS, and very likely to stand again after doing a clean install. I have a laptop HP seems like flashing procedures require to disconnect the disk hard - is this true for laptops?

    Second, is how I format to ensure that clean the MBR? I have Vista and want to upgrade to Windows 7. I have Windows 7 upgrade ultimate disc that can do a custom install which should format entirely. Tell me if I think too old school here but should be low (or zero) format is required? From what I've read, the function of full format of Windows 7 should be as powerful as the low level. is that correct? I don't mind the overtime work as long as I don't have any problems (at least with this Trojan) later. I also fear that upgrading Windows 7 disk might not have all the features of formatting as a full version, which is a nonsense?

    Thank you very much for your help!

  • HP 15-ac108na: how to enter the BIOS and the RECOVERY of the screens, please?


    Can anyone help? I need to know the keys to press to enter the bios and recovery screens. If I missed anything like splash screen, then I need to know this as well.

    Buy laptop just left Saturday. Quite happy with it really.


    Shut down the laptop - like you are on Windows 10, do this by holding down the key SHIFT left click Shutdown to temporarily prevent a boot hybrid.

    Click next to the ESC key as soon as you press the power button to access the Start Menu.

    From there, you can access by pressing f11 recovery options or the menu of the Bios by pressing f10.

  • Time to update the BIOS and firmware of remote management?

    I'll put up a 'new' ThinkServer RD630 (2954A6U). It was purchased for a project that never happened, and we are now dry and reuse to replace an old Office Server. The current firmware versions are:

    • BIOS: 2.05
    • ME:
    • BMC 1.7
    • IPMI 2.0

    Page 61 of the User Guide ThinkServer says, "update the BIOS on your server only if the new BIOS version specifically solves a problem you have. We don't recommend updates to the BIOS for servers that do not need. [...]"

    As far as I know, we have no problems. The system starts fine and runs Windows Server 2012 well enough.


    Should I update the BIOS and firmware IMM (remote management) to the current version? Are there hidden problems, security issues or other concerns that it is worth?

    Other indicators of initial configuration that you can share with a new admin would be much appreciated, too! Thank you.

    With the help of the Lenovo Support, I was able to fix my problem where I couldn't get to the menu of the BIOS of the 630 RD (in F1) and all I saw was a cursor on the screen. I describe the procedure in detail here:

    Thank you to all those who commented above and especially to those who have sent me suggestions via PMs.

    The fact that it does not work with a clean install starts to point to some kind of hardware problem, although it is strange that he will run in Mode without failure.

    Click with the right button on the taskbar, select Manager tasks, click the Startup tab - right click on each entry in turn and select Disable.  Once completed, restart the computer and see if there is no change.

    An update of the bios (F.39 Rev.A) is also available on the Product Page , which can be useful if you have not already done it - if you decide to apply, make sure you unplug all the devices (including the usb keyboard) before starting the update.

  • Acer gateway ne570 won't boot upward and I tried the bios and it always detects the hard drive

    I have an acer gateway ne570 and it does not start and I tried the bios and it always detects the hard drive but first boot priority is boot windows which is the only thing on the menu Manager startup options when you press on enter where the box "no boot device, press a key" comes after starting the laptop and when the gateway logo appears. I've had for over a year and the hard drive still works and my laptop didn't come with a recovery or recovery usb drive. And I also used the alt + f10 button that linked me right back to square "no boot device, press a key. Anyway, what should I do?

    you need a PC to use the tool of creation of the windows window.

    to boot from the CD or USB, press F12 on startup and choose the correct boot device.

  • Hard drive shows in the Bios and Device Manager but not in disk management.

    I recently had a hard drive fail because of the excessive heat in the computer case (he also took a memory too). When I plug the drive as a secondary drive in any computer it will appear in the Bios and the Manager of devices, but not in disk management, nor can it be considered be as ZAR and Spinrite disk utility.

    The disc spins up and down when turned on and seems to work. Just trying to recover data from the disk, so I can put it on a new drive.

    Any ideas?

    If its not shown in disk management I would use this bootable HD to the utility check disk (probably all riders is set correctly?)

  • HP DV6 of the computer stopped working after the update of the Bios and Memoryupgrade

    HP DV6 - 3161EO

    XE068EA #UUW

    Hi, I bought a brand new HP with Intel I5 processor computer and GUI double, its been working well so far and I thought that I should upgrade the Bios and memory as well.

    So I did, I bought memory 10600 and crusial 12600 and corsair, a single and two put in correspondence of the sticks, just to be in business, and I've updated the bios. of F.13 to F.29

    The computer worked perfectly for about 4-5 hours, then there are allmost quite dead.

    Ive tried to pass on different memorycabsm like the original samsungs that came with the computer.

    Ive tried the famous "hard reset".

    Nothing, the computer starts "boots" but don't approach the entered message turnes off.

    Presedure same each time.

    Any memory I put in, the same result.

    Ive used different powerbricks, turned of the computer resets hard, between 10s 2 min, picked up the bios battery, has offered free energy.

    Let the rest of the computer for half a day, put it all together exept cmos battery = exactly the same as before.

    "take out all the memories and the computer works and get that caps lock flashing light.

    So my question is this

    Why you encourage people to update, when it's clearly the fault at hand.

    Sell your computers with 8 GB of ram from the beginning so the people do not have upgraded later because your hardware is not able to manage different memorycaps of accepted and authorized as crusial or corsair providers.

    Ive built perhaps 50-60 computers and had about 10 laptops and NEVER had a fault like this.

    My laptop $1200 is useless, and I actually held you at HP responsible of it.

    The computer is of course out of warranty, so its my own falult, as usual.

    «A simple question, is there a way to 'force' a new bios on the Board, without memory of the computer, because it is the only time where it works and works welll.»

    Thnx, 'a sick owner HP.

    For later use, it's really kff upward, but I got it working again.

    1 changed the original memorycabs for much faster, 1600 mhz, I know that this mobo doesn't support, but he did start the computer, so I could run the Windows + arrows Bios recover.

    Installed the HP bios tools F10 + GIS and it worked.

    so I guess I have to myself a thank you and a boost of the kudosbutton, hahah

    Well, when your computer went down, don't give up and try everything you can, this prob took me about 3-4 days to eradicate, but now its working again.

    See you soon

    How to access the BIOS and disable hype-threading on xp


    During the initial boot, you should see a brief message posted to press a specific key (usually the delete key) to access the BIOS. If there is an option to disable Hyper-Threading, you will need to find it.  You can also see if there is a guide for your motherboard and the BIOS options.

    Any reason, you need to disable?

    This file will be located in C:\SWSetup\sp38833.

    Then restart.

    If your nc6400 has this problem with the SMSC Infrared driver with the! Marc, I went into the BIOS, found the menu of Ports and disabled the infrared port, saved and restarted.
