How about we just use the adapter plugged into the laptop . Turn off the laptop remove the battery plug in the adapter and turn on the laptop and retry the bios update .

Place the Bios file to your desktop

Click on the button type CMD inside the Search programs and files box. Right-click on CMD under Programs (1) choose Run as administrator . Note: Command Prompt opens to this path C:\Windows\System32

Type in
Code:
cd desktop
and press [ENTER]

Note   Note
It should open to C:\Users\{your account name}\Desktop>_


type
Code:
1545_A14.EXE /forceit
and press [ENTER]

Note   Note
There is a space between .exe and the forward slash

ok so, i opened the command prompt without running as administrator, and i typed cd desktop and pressed enter and it went through and brought up C:\Users\"my account name"\Desktop>

but i didnt go any further, because i was wondering, so i have do i have to run it as administrator? because when i turn on my laptop, i think it signs me in as the administrator, because im the only one that uses the machine, just thought id ask, thanks again

Ok If you did " cd desktop " and it opened to the path of C:\Users\"YourUserName"\Desktop> _ then type in the command below

Code:
1545_A14.EXE /forceit
Note   Note
Make sure the 1545_A14.exe file is on your Desktop
