You don't have a floppy drive, or you don't have a floppy disk? They are pretty cheap and they do come in handy when working with computers, still. You can also still purchase the floppy disks also.

You'll have to find out if you can boot to a USB drive. If not, you'll have to make a bootable cd-rom disk and update it that way.

Does the system already have a working processor on it? if so, the link contains a file to update the bios from within Windows.

Keep trying that page, I got it the first time, but the 2nd time it took me a few tries.

I don't see one listed for Win 7. I see one of course for Dos, Win 2000, and XP.
So those are your choices.

if you get the page cannot be found or error message, just try and drill-down and select your model from the page..."mainboards" etc.

If it boots you into dos, you would then run the downloaded file. You should be able to copy the file onto the USB drive also.

February 2, 2013 9:41:48 PM

maybe i did something wrong while trying to make the usb drive bootable.i will search for other tutorial for usb,or,maybe you have one :D

I didn't download the bios files, so I'm not sure if it already included the necessary dos boot files or not.

If not, you can download them from a place like bootdisk.com for dos. or freedos.com

Then you can use your HP boot disk software and point that to your downloaded dos files to make it bootable.

you would boot to dos with the usb.
once it is booted to DOS,
type: cd gumish and press the Enter key.
Then you would type the name of file that contains the bios.
If you tell me the names, I can tell you which one to type.

you can run the autoexec.bat file by typing the name. It should launch the biosflash.exe.
February 13, 2013 9:12:15 AM

nothing hapening when type autoexec.bat,the cursor moves to the next line and just blinking,in the next line nothing is writen,there is just a blinking cursor.When i pres almost any key the bios sound is apear.I put out usb and restarted the pc,everything is normal again.any sugestions on that?

what happens when you run bioflash.exe from the dos prompt?
February 13, 2013 7:15:38 PM

nothing happens,i got a message something like-file not recognisible as batch executable file-i cant remember.I forgot to mention that autoexec.bat is not visible on usb but it is there,becouse when i copy again downloaded bios on the bootable usb drive ask me to replace that file,I had to download also dos files for usb which give me a lot of trouble to find matchable dos becouse when i tried to format with hp tool i was getting error message something like-cannot format becouse dos files are not compatible with fat32-then i found win98boot files on internet and used them during formating usb.Then i placed bios files on usb.2 of them are invisible.I set boot priority to usb and then i restarted and the dos comes up

I don't have the downloaded files, but you probably have to type:
bioflash.exe A2151_A1.OMF

Replace the autoexec.bat with the one from Fuji
I would then type this: bioflash.exe D2151_A1.OCF
