Hi all. i have a fujitsu seimans scaleo 3601
250gb hd, 2048 mem 3 gig pent 4. just reinstalled windows has a lot of programs would not work or un- install, anyway instalation went ok but......comp crashes on internet and some times between log offs, just a black screen to say the system has recovered from a serious error then it restarts. I go to event veiwer and the report comes back krn crash, about bios not been compliant? bios date is 21-12-2005 would this be out of date because of re-installed windows? I have re-installed windows twice now and after a day it does the same thing. I have read up on bios updates / flashin bios, seems awkward to do, dont want to wreck pc! any ideas thanks, oh yeah when i bought this from pc world he had to update the bios i think? because it would not boot straight on to wndows? out of warrenty now, was paying for pc support £6 a month they wont come out and sort it out!! aparently you only pay for telephone service!! what a rip off!
