Phoenix BIOS Firstware

By Shaun.G ·
My pc is a win xp home pc, under warranty and guarantee.

I find that after the updates, IE7 is installed, and it seems to always give some error when it closes, and wont close when I press the cross button. I have to press it several times before it closes.

I have had to restore using firstware utility, but I find that this does not seem to restore in the same way and I find that I have to restore more than once before it becomes usable.

Can anyone give me some ideas as to why this occurs please?

Error

by Shaun.G In reply to Whats the error?

The error is that the restore does not always restore in the same, and that I have to redo the restore several times before it is a workable restore.

For example... after a restore:
1/. I get a network error - that it cannot connect
2/. Or when I rename the pc from that which is provided in the restore, I cannot do it... evidence of this is when I set up a scheduled task, it will take the original name of pc and not the one its renamed to, but if I do another restore, this wont happen and it will be ok.
3/. Or what happens is that it wont recognise the router or other pcs on the network and that I need to ensure that I have access rights to other pcs... yet, again, on doing a restore again, this error goes away.

I can almost hear you ask why to restore... I was constantly getting exception handler errors on IE7 closing, and IE7 closing for no reason at all... or that my pc would suddenly run very slow and I cannot do anything. At the same time I could not close or open windows explorer. I didnt mess about, I just ran a restore to resolve this issue... but I have to do it several times.

I remember from install WinNT 4 workstation and or server, that things had to be installed in a set order, perhaps there is this issue with firstware restore?
