Hi after upgrading my motherboard I have a BIOS error. Could anyone help with this problem please:

 

ERROR 0167 No processor BIOS update found 

 

I can eventually boot into windows 7 if I leave it. I would like to fix this problem if possible though.

 

My CPU is Intel Duo Core E4400@2.00 GHz 775 Socket

 

My Bios is: 2RKT57AUS        Date: 28/11/2008

 

The Motherboard is Lenovo Thinkcentre M57 45R312

 

System Model: 9174Y1A

 

 

Do I need to Flash/Update the Bios?

 

I looked on the Lenovo site out of curiosity and found they didn't have a 9174Y1A update, but they did have a 9174Y1B update. I don't know if that would work?

 

I have my original Windows 7 CD and key. If I need to reinstall. Would rather avoid it if possible.

I noticed the updates on Lenovo for my close system match are for XP and Vista.

 

 

Any help appreciated. I'm not that great with the technical jargon.

 

Thanks

Was the processor updated on this computer. From searching Google on this error, it relates to an updated CPU needing an updated BIOS. The only BIOS update I could find on the M57 was for the 9174 series without the suffix.

It would seem you would need to use the CD iso (2rj964b.iso) to update the BIOS as the only WIndows one available is for a 32bit OS assuming your Win 7 is 64bit. From the 2rj964b.txt file.

Flash BIOS update - bootable diskette version
for ThinkCentre M57, M57p
Version 2RKT64B
Installation README


This package updates the basic input/output system (BIOS) on
ThinkCentre M57 (type 6008, 6010, 6019, 6062, 6065, 6066, 6068,
6069, 6071, 6072, 6074, 6075, 6076, 6077, 6079, 6081, 6082, 6086,
6087, 6089, 9172, 9174, 9181, 9182) and M57p (type 6064, 6067, 
6073, 6078, 6088, 9011, 9012, 9013, 9014, 9018, 9019, 9071, 9087, 
9088, 9089, 9096, 9160, 9162, 9164, 9163, 9193, 9194, 9196, 9303) 
systems.
You could contact Lenovo customer support to confirm that this is the correct version for your computer.

Hi. Thanks for the reply. I'm using the same processor from my old motherboard: Intel Duo Core E4400@2.00 GHz.

The new motherboard was bought off ebay and I used my old processor in that.

 

Would I be safe flashing with the BIOS you found?

I noticed it says OS: XP and Vista. I have Windows 7 running 32 bit.

 

Thanks.

I believe the Visa/XP OS relates to updating the BIOS within Windows. If updated with the bootable iso, the OS would not come into play. Also, I cannot confirm if this is the correct BIOS. I would contact Lenovo Customer support to confirm if the BIOS I linked to is the correct one.

Thanks for the info. I'll contact Lenovo.

 

Sorry if this is a daft question but would removing the battery and putting it back in be of any use?

 

Cheers

Are you talking about the CMOS battery? That would be worth a try along with setting the BIOS back to default settings. If removing the CMOS battery, also remove the main battery and hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Then replace the batteries.

Sorry for the confusion, when I wrote the last post, I was thinking you had a laptop. Just unplug the power supply when you clear the BIOS. There may also be a jumper on the motherboard that will clear the BIOS.
