i was trying to update my BIOS.. its tells me to do this
You must restart the computer in DOS mode.
For Win-ME systems, this requires the use of a boot floppy.
2. At the DOS prompt, position to C:\HP\BIOSupdt
3. Begin the BIOS update process by entering the command: BIOSupdt
4. When rebooting after the update, the following message may be displayed:
0251: System CMOS checksum bad - Default configuration used
Press <F1> to Setup, <F2> to Resume
5. Press F1 to enter SETUP
6. Press F5 to reset BIOS defaults.
7. Press F10 to exit SETUP saving your changes.
8. Press ENTER to confirm the save.
I dont understand how to position to C:\HP\BIOSupdt

well i lost my USB drive last week
so guess i cant do that
So my friend took my hard drive and said he formatted it, so there is no windows on it now.. so when trying to have it boot from the CD rom i still get nothing, just a black screen wanting me to do intel boot utilities and wanting me to press CTRL+S ... if i dont do that then that screen goes away after 8 sec then it goes to a all black screen.. in the past i have re-installed windows before with this same CD and never had this problem.
