Hi , I run the pcpitstop full test once or twice a month for peace of mind , its a great test to show everything is running ok ... theres an added test called XP Readiness Test that I also run and for some reason the BIOS result has changed and I dont understand why , All I know about bios is that its a function that reads all the hardware I have connected , or words to that effect ... anyway here is the result of the BIOS ...
"Sort of Ready. Your PC meets minimum hardware requirements for Windows XP, but we recommend upgrading some components. However, none of your software is on our list of applications that may not run properly under Windows XP
You have 04/30/03
Bare Minimum None
Sort of Ready. The BIOS on this system was created before January 1, 2000. Microsoft has indicated that problems may occur using Windows XP with an older BIOS. You may be able to obtain an update from your vendor."
i have ran this xp readiness test a million times in the past and it has always come back with a tick but this time it has given me a question mark , why does it say "The BIOS on this system was created before January 1, 2000" when it also tells me that "You have 04/30/03"
if anyone understands this and what the BIOS is all about I'd be greatfull for any advice , is there a way to correct the bios ??
