Downgrade Bios for Lenovo 3000 N200 0769-BWG

2008-03-27, 15:04 PM
Using the Lenovo Updater from Windows XP I upgraded the bios and then the computer restarted. Now it only get as far as windows xp starting up and then it blue screens and restarts. How can I downgrade the bios to the previous version? We have been able to run dos from a disk on key.

Thanks
Simmy

Usually , when I load in a new bios, it asks me on reboot to go into the bios and load setup defaults.

simmy, welcome to the forum,
 
is it possible that you were running XP with the hard drive set to compatabilty / ide mode in bios, and the update has set it to default AHCI / SATA mode?
It might be worth looking, you need to press F1 when booting in order to enter bios.
