G555 Bios problem

[ Edited ]

Hi, today I bought Lenovo g555

after installing windows XP, I have installed all the drivers from lenovo site, and everything was ok, but then i realised that there is new bios for my laptop. when i flashed the bios my ati card was not recognized any more. i tried to reinstall the driver but nothing happens. My original bios was ( 2cec19ww (v1.06 ), and the new one is 2ccn21ww(v1.10).

I dont know what to do now, should i somehow clear the cmos and how? or can i find old bios firmware and where ?

Please help

Re: Bios problem

Try to enter BIOS and load default settings. If this doesn't solve this, maybe you need to call customer service.

Re: Bios problem

Maybe you should back to previous version. You need to contact customer suppor because Lenovo shows only the latest BIOS on download page.

Re: Bios problem

Congratulations. This is not a solution for XP user, though. I have the same problem. I was looking for the original BIOS on the net, but can't get it anywhere. I've also contacted the Customer support with no sucess. The only solution seems to be to ask for it here or another forum, if somebody has it backed up. Can someone help ?

I just don't understand why people update the BIOS when they do not have an issue. I have NEVER updated any of my PC's BIOS. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Re: Bios problem

They do it to get support for new functions. Like USB booting.
