    hi

    thanks for that.

    the cmospwd thing seems really complicated - is there an easier way ?

    i physically cant find anything on the board indicating if its 940 or 943.

    thanks

    well after unplugging the battery on the board all night i have been able to boot (several times) into windows and all seems ok.

    it added a few bits of new hardware on first boot - but back to normal now.

    so back to my original question - is there an easier way of getting the new processor added - that cmospwd process scares me !!

    oberkorn28, in similar situation (new CPU should be recognized, but won't boot at all) cmospwd -k was the only solution that worked for me; everything else, including what you mentioned, didn`t. The command I mention does the same as removing CMOS battery (which is often very hard to access inside notebook, sometimes even soldered) - nothing to be afraid of, and it should resolve BIOS issues. Reflashing BIOS... well, it is the usual practice to flash latest version prior to upgrade. While reflashing the same version may help, you should flash BIOS only when system is 100% stable i.e. with old CPU. Oh, and the boot loop almost always means Windows problems, not hardware.

    Thanks

    oberkorn28, why are you so keen on believing your notebook's BIOS is corrupted? Did you flash modified BIOS or what? Reflashing BIOS won't reset all BIOS settings and solve BIOS settings corruption; removing CMOS battery or running cmospwd -k will. Disassemble it completely and remove CMOS battery for couple minutes if you're afraid of cmospwd.

    hi

    i am sure its a bios issue because i downloaded that cmospwd file and double clicked on one of the elements of the program (ioperm.exe) - it briefly opened a dos window and then shut the window.

    ever since i rebooted it has either not booted or booted and crashed shortly afterwards.

    would a corrupt bios work intermittently - as the machine does occasionally boot.

    i just paid that bioagentplus place £25 as they said they had an updated bios - but now they havent - so i am chasing them for a refund.

    cheers

    oberkorn28, you should have followed my instruction. =/ Use another machine to make a bootable DOS usb flash disk, copy cmospwd there and run cmoswpd.exe -k when booted from this flash disk - or disconnect CMOS battery for couple minutes. Either should solve your issues. Good luck!

    hi

    i have disconnected cmos battery for a while and when inserted it loaded default settings - as expected - but it still wont take new processor.
    if i follow your instructions above will that let me put in the new processor ?

    and one last thing - how the heck do i create a bootable usb stick using windows 7 - cant seem to work that out.

    thanks so much
