Problem executing installing Bios update

 

I was trying to download and update the Bios in this HP computer.

Model No: “Pavilion zv5213”

Product Code: PJ813EA#ABU

Software Windows XP SP3

Hardwire to Router Broadband

 

Bios in Pavilion zv5213 HP now is F.11. 30/04/04 SMBIOS Ver. 2.31

 

Extracting 08A0F35.wph
Extracting FLASH.BAT
Cannot open FLASH.BAT
Extracting MFC42.DLL
Extracting MSVCP60.DLL
Extracting MSVCRT.DLL
Extracting PHLASH9X.VXD
Extracting PHLASH.INI
Extracting PHLASH.LOG
Extracting PHLASHLC.DLL
Extracting PHLASHNT.SYS
Extracting winphlash.EXE
Cannot open winphlash.EXE
Extracting WINPHLASH.HLP

I found on HP's site a update 2005-05-06 , Version:F.35, 1.67M

 

It was downloaded and I ran the .ex. File, see errors above.

 

Please could anyone advise me what the problem could be?

 

Thank you

Hi, Rich:

 

When I look at the BIOS release notes for that flash it only goes back to F.21.

 

You have F.11

 

Do you have an AMD processor in your notebook?  The flash is only good for AMD's.

 

If so, maybe you want to try flashing it to a F.22 first and then flashing it to F.35.

 

Make sure you have your antivirus disabled. I usually like to run those flashes in Windows Safe Mode.

 

Lastly, I wouldn't flash the BIOS unless your notebook is having the issues addressed in the release notes.
