Do I have a door stopper?

2012-10-12, 0:18 AM

Hi, hopefully somebody will be able to help me.


I bought a used laptop B570.. Right now the computer does not boot as it does not recognize the Wi-Fi card and halts there. Also, it won't boot with the battery inserted. If I try to insert the battery while it is on, the laptop will beep once and turn off. I think it has to do with the BIOS not recognizing the battery anymore. So I tried to reinstall the BIOS, but  am getting an error that the battery must be inserted.


How to reinstall the BIOS without the battery


Other notes:

I removed the Wi-Fi card, and was able to boot with the CDROM to a simulated Windows XP (using Hiren's Tools)

The last person removed the hard drive for security reason
