Bios Download failed, corrupting bios; machine will not boot up

2009-10-13, 18:49 PM

My unit -Lonovo 3000 K100 57068352; Vista OS.

on 10/12/09 I downloaded Bios; 2skg33a; released by Mar coGU; Release date 2009, 2, 27; based on Bios 2skg31a.  The download went smooth, and reported everything completed.  I rebooted the machine, and it will boot until the OS reaches the beginning of the start page, then recycles to the start.

 

I have done a complete recovery of my system and this doesn't help.  It does the same thing.  I believe the Bios are corrupted and is not part of the Hard Disk system.

 

I need to be able to download the original Bios for this machine. 

 

Can anyone help?  My machine is not usable without a correct Bios.

Thanks for any help.

AL

Did u download the correct one? I checked this page and found there are 2 different bios available for different bios ID.

 

Flash BIOS update (BIOS ID: 2SKG)

Flash BIOS update (BIOS ID: 2SKT)

 

Also, i saw the release date is 2009-03-25, and the download link showed the text as 2SJG33A and not the one with K. Where did u download actually?

 

Btw, U have to check ur bios ID before installing the correct ones. Follow the description in the page for steps to check the ID.

Thank you very much for the quick response.  I did run the program they specified and thought I used the correct file to download.

 

This morning I downloaded the .iso file, burned it to CD and loaded it.  It worked and my machine is working fine.  I appreciate your help.  I don't know what happened, but it is working.

 

Thanks again
