Windows 7: New Bios driver messed up

most vendors dont want you to send your hd in with the pc, because they cant be sure that you get your same pc back. You dont void your warrenty, its a "user replaceable" part. Call and ask if you can send the laptop without the hard drive. But at least pull the drive out and get your data off of it.

I agree, its better that way, just incase you have " Personal viewing " at least u can get rid of it before u send it

Wiisper, I agree with the advice to remove your drives. It's best to keep your data as safe as possible. Contact the manufacturer and get the RMA process started.

Good luck with it.

I have not read every responce, but 99.9% of all laptops have the bios set to allow CD-DVD boot. I have been able at different times to salvage a BAD BIOS install, with.
1. copy all the required files onto cd that are need to FLASH the BIOS.
2. using the emergency open switch- open the CD insert the flash bios disk.
3. power on the computer, and when it boots into the cd you can flash your bios. correctly that way.
4. If you carefully watch, when you power up the system checks all items , hd, floppy, cd, usb, etc etc, and if 1 of them fails on pre boot test. the system fails. always before you see the BIOS flash on the screen.

depends on system, and how it is set to boot. (sometimes the manual give you a simple method, like F2 or some other key.

Full details on the Laptop would help. Intel A22m uses F2. and will flash bios via the USB port.
