    I messed my BIOS up, need help


    Recently, my computer was running poorly and i had never updated my bios so i tried and i believe i messed up somehow. Sometimes it will start and other times it won't, sometimes it will start in safe mode and other times it won't. I have Biostar motherboard and an Intel chipset E2200. I have been to the website and tried to fix things but i'm not real sure where to start. Nothing i do seems to help and i am at wits end. I don't mind re-installing and starting over if i could reformat the hard drive i would do that and start over. Need help, thanks for anything.

    Welcome to Seven Forums.

    Generally BIOS won't affect Windows but can address RAM or CPU problems, sleep, resume etc.

    To better help us to help you would you please add your systems specs? Here's the correct way to do it. :SystemInfo See Your System Specs Under System Manufacturer/Model Number add whether it is a desktop or laptop and whether self built. Very important

    Log in to Seven Forums and you will be able to transfer the info directly to the specs page in your profile from within the System Info app.

    Your System Specs here.

    After doing this your specs will be available in each of your posts.
    Click on My system Specs in the lower left of this post to see how it should look.:)
    Full instructions are in the tutorial.

    Then we can be better equipped to help.

    The bios has nothing to do with windows running poorly, and re installing windows will not have any affect on the bios.

    Where did you get the idea it would ?

    Even though you`ve said you tried everything...........

    Have you tried re flashing the bios ?

    I tried downloading from Biostars website the utility for that but it didn't work so now i can't do very much. Sometimes i get a message that tells me some files may be corrutpted.

    Ahh, yes, probably so, sorry.

    Have a read in the manuals you should have.
    Is your computer a Dell or built yourself?

    the computer was build for me. I have tried a different approach, i have a win 7 disc (not the original) and i have tried to install the OS again from the disc and haven't been successful. During one the attempts i choose the format option from the disc and now the drive has been formatted and the OS won't install. I feel like i fell deeper into the hole with that move. Still don't know what to do from this point. Someone please help. Thanks
