It's been a while since I updated the bios on my computer and recently its been giving me a blue screen. I'm trying to follow the instructions on my computer manufacturer's website but I can't find the "Select Burn to transfer BIOS image to CD" option on my CD burning program. When I try to open the file with my program it says it can't read those type of files.

The CD burning programs I have are:
-Nero 6 Ultra Edition
-Sonic RecordNow DX version 4.6

I would appreciate any explanation as to how to follow these installation notes. I'm really new at this, please forgive my ignorance!

1. Download the file and use the CD burning software to open the file.
2. Select Burn to transfer BIOS image to CD.
3. Restart the system with CD and follow on screen message to complete BIOS update.

EDIT: Sorry, I should have given more detail. I get the blue screen when I boot into XP and it said that if I hadn't seen it before I should restart the computer, but if I had seen it before, to update the bios. Currently my bios version is 1.01 and the one on the website for my specific notebook (Versa E680) is 1.07. I have found version 1.03 on the net. Should I just upgrade to that one instead?

The bios should not need to be upgraded if it the computer has been working, unless you have added something and it is having problems.

Look in the Event Viewer and see what errors are showing up at the times that this is occurring.


Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

On the right side of the page you will see the options Applications, Security, and Systems, double click on Systems. There are eight columns on this page, the three that you will want are Type, Date, Time, and Event.

The errors will appear in the Type column, they are red dots with a white X inside of them.

Warnings will appear as a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside.

When you see an error, double click on it and see what the description is.

Please post the error code/s found in the Event column and the descriptions back in this topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
