|"After getting upgrade for my bios and installing it. My machine keeps on restarting without reaching the desktop."|
There is a difference between a bios update and a bios upgrade.
A bios update is free - you get it from the mboard manufacturer's web site in the downloads for your specific model, or from the brand name system's web site in the downloads for your specific model, and flash the bios with it yourself.
You MUST use a bios update for the right model.
Some mboard models have several versions or revisions and you must use a bios update for the right one
A bios upgrade is NOT free, you buy it on the web, and it's not available from anywhere else free.
It's either ......
- a replacement bios chip already flashed, you replace your original bios flash chip with it
- or - a specialized bios update - you flash your bios flash chip with it yourself .
In either case it enables every bios feature possible and it supports recognizing all possible cpus your mboard can use
If it's a replacement bios chip it should work fine if you followed the installation directions correctly.
If it's a specialized bios update, you must follow the flashing directions correctly.
Which did you have - a bios update or an actual bios upgrade ??
When you flash the bios yourself, that's the riskiest thing you can do with a computer.
You are taking a big risk when you flash your bios - if the flash fails, and/or the flash chip physically fails while flashing (this is COMMON - these cheap flash chips can only be flashed an unpredictable small number of times), you will have a mboard that will not boot normally..
Did your flash the bios yourself ?
If yes, your bios is probably trashed. There's no way you can fix the problem when it's repeatedly restarting.
You could try re-seating the ram and removing the hard drive(s) but if it still repeatedly restarts you bios is trashed - you can't fix the problem.
In that case, or if the bios chip physically failed while flashing, it must be replaced.
If it's in a socket and removable, you can order a new bios chip already flashed with the latest bios update.
If it's soldered into the mboard only an expert with specialized equipment can replace it, and in most cases you must ship it to him and have him ship it back - that can cost more than buying a used same mboard model on the web, or even a new one.
