Hi guys,

Im living a weird situation with one 2006 laptop. It is a Airis N619 (755ll0), 40 Gb hard disk
and 256 Mb RAM. Here its main characteristics:
http://www.airissupport.com/SoporteHome ... /N619/N620

This laptop was running windows XP and I decided to try one linux distro. While I was installing linux I
began to browse the web and I collapsed the limited RAM memory... the laptop was frozed and I was
forced to perform a hard reboot (the linux installation wasnt completed yet).

After the hard reboot the situation is the followong:
the computer turn on, the CD unit try to read and the monitor works. The laptop shows the manufacter
screen (Airis) but it holds here. Before the crash, I was showed the message to click F2 button to
access the BIOS menu. Now, I cant see this message. If I click F2, I can acces the BIOS anyway, but it
is not like before: now I just see the confirmation of the system about it recognize my HH,
CD unit and my memory RAM; but now I have no a real menu, I mean, I cant see the boot priorities
of my system or change the clock.

I have extracted the BIOS battery but the situation doesnt change.
It seems my BIOS is corrupted in some way.

I have try the AMIBOOT.ROM method (my bios is an AMI bios) without success. I also try to register
in several forums but nobody seems to be expected a similar problem. I would like to know if this could
be a problem of my BIOS, because in that case I just order you a new reprogrammed chip.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

1. what happens if you remove the HDD?
2. and yes, it could be that your bios is corrupted. Sometimes shit happens...

But first try this:
- remove all drives like HDD, CDROM, floppy (if possible)
- remove all RAM
- reboot notebook for 15 minutes
- power off notebook
- insert drives and RAM
- reboot again

Hi biosflash, thanks for the replay,

Your advise help me a lot of. After a long and hard fight with a screw, I had success
taking off the hard disk. Without the hard disk I could make the flashing of my
Bios and I get the bios setup. Now, the situation is the following:
I can boot from CD of USB whatever linux distro. If I include the
hard disk again it is no detected by the BIOS. So, it seems that my hard reboot
destroied my hard disk...
I'm ordering a new hard disk and I hope I will enjoy my old laptop again.

Thanks for your help!
Cheers!

Confirmed: I order a new hard disk. With the new hard disk my laptop is fully operative again.
It seems that when I reseted my laptop the electric part of the hard disk was damaged.
Thanks.
