HI, I TRIED TO UPDATE MY FIRMWARE ON MY HP PAVILLION A1720N. WHEN REBOOTING I RECEIVED THE AWARD BOOTBLOCK BOIS. BIOS ROM CHECKSUM ERROR. KEYBOARD NOT FOUND, DETECTING IDE APATI DEVICE. I DOWNLOADED A ER BOOTDISK AND IT READ IT BUT I THINK I MAY HAVE BURNED THE ISO FILE INCORRECTLY. FLASHING BIOS'S SEEMS CONFUSING TO ME. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
First try resetting the bios by removing the board battery for one minute with the system off, or move the cmos jumper over one position keeping 2 of the 3 pins covered, then return to the original position after one minute. If this doesn't work, try pressing the "del" key when posting and check your bios settings. I disable "spread spectrum" but your bios may not use this setting. Oem bios settings are sparse for a reason: the manufacturer's don't want people changing the settings as the system may refuse to post.
