and after trying a number of "things" I
please put in an exhaustive list of what you tried as I suspect replacing the memory and checking the power supply for bloated capacitors are not in that list of "things"

Re: Samsung 439 for Windows 10

This is from another Samsung Notebook series that IS windows 10 compatible: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Samsung-BA92-08418A-b-g-n-Wireless-Bluetooth-4-0-PCIe-Half-Atheros-AR5B225/231157399491 So I suggest you check if the connector looks physically the same as what you have on your incompatible Broadco...

Re: Samsung 439 for Windows 10

replacing it with WiFi module from another manufacturer (eg Atheros AR5B225) or using an external USB WiFi module.
So either Atheros or Intel WiFi modules seem to work in Windows 10.

Re: Bioteq MB-1433/50UiV-A V3

I would start on the pins of the actual keyboard connector as that is close and any traces leading there as they may have been eaten by the acid from the NiCd cell...

Re: Samsung 439 for Windows 10

From what I see here: https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/windows10-update/ and here: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/05/31/windows_10_samsung_fail/ they simply are not supporting windows 10 at all on your laptop.

Ok, if you can make it into windows, flash the bios again with the utility from MSI, but this time run it as Administrator. Because I have a feeling that is what went wrong the first time...

Re: Computer not starting after BIOS flashed

Hi, First of all, try a fresh new CR2032 3V lithium coin cell battery. If that is empty, your machine will appear to be dead. If that doesn't do the trick, we'll have to go to barebones setup meaning disconnecting drives etc to see if we can make the bare minimum combination (CPU,motherboard, one me...

Re: Update BIOS Id=AMI P01-A1

I gave a link to the bios update for that Acer system. In the same way you need to find a bios update for your system at Packard Bell support.

Re: need bios update MS CUBA MS-7301

I don't know where you found information that the E8xxx CPUs are supported. The chipset on your board does not support them: http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-VIA_(chipsets)/P4M890.html That is a hardware limit that cannot be overcome with any software, BIOS or otherwise. It is not just the FSB but also...

So not only you have a working system but also a disk image that you can restore. Well done sir, and thank you for sharing this method, this took some out of the box thinking (pun intended).

Re: Gateway 2000 4DX2-66V - Bios Update

We need to try and find out what board is inside. This typenumber comes as big tower or mini tower. Most likely there's a JX30 board or an Intel Classic R board in there. Current bios info and/or a clear picture of the motherboard itself would help a lot.

Re: MOBO intel al440lx with Matrox G400

You do NOT have an Intel AL440LX. You have a board made by DTK and they used an Intel chipset.
Most likely the model is PRM-0076I E0 as that is the only one with an SMC multi I/O chip.

It has an AGP 2x slot that should be compatible with that Matrox card.

Re: 128GB: Taken TX3 (LGS Prime 3C 2A59IT4C)

What brand/model harddisk are you using, what firmware release is it and what kind of brand/model cable are you using?
