Re: Possible bios virus infection

It appears that the screenshot does not include the interference! The interference takes the form of 3 rectangular shapes each progressively larger. On a 20" monitor the first is 6"x6" with 1"x1" corners cropped out, the centre one is 5"x5" again with 1" corners cropped out and the last is a simple ...

Re: BIOS update without Windows

It is probably a bit late in the day but I used an XP version of windows in VirtualBox.
You may be able to use PlayonLinux but I have not tried that.

My bios seems to be 'bug'gered so I may be trying it soon!

Re: fitPC3Pro

My cure was to create another bios and load the new bios from a usb stick.
I was lucky as I could download an update from fitPc support.

Re: Fit-Pc3 Pro

This is an afterthought;

Will a fitPC3 Pro work with fitPC4 Pro bios software?

Obviously if the answer is yes please can I have a download of fitPC4 Pro bios software.

Resetting Bios.

Resetting bios by removing RAM and fumbling for little tiny contacts on a motherboard is a challenge to the more mature user. If you have a usb loaded with the bios software it is a doddle - even for the more, or even most, mature users. Please may I suggest that the current software is available to...
