2018-01-20, 13:03 PM
Flash from SO Windows 7 pro

when it arrives at:
"loading capsules to secure memory buffer".......

It locks them (77% charge) and does not go further.
I have to turn off the power to start it up again.

Any suggestions?

Solution is to prepare CD or Pendrive with newest update and try to flash it in maintenence mode.

1.unplug powercord
2 find CLR_CMOS jumper add change position from pins 1 and 2 to 2 and 3
3 plug powercord
4 plug Pendrive or insert CD and turn on computer.
5 wait until it flash BIOS
6 if succes it will stay off after update
7 unplug powercord, set back the jumper to 1 and 2, turn on computer.
8 naw make one more update in standart way to eliminate 0162 error message.


for me it warked.

I have the same problem on M73 Tiny (10AX) after MoBo replacement.
During update it freeze on screen

 

There is no problem on two other PC's with old MoBo's.
Even older wersions than 82 (81 and 79) have the same problem
