the drivers take a very long time to download, since my internet is slow.
i will tell you when i installed them.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Ok, i installed both drivers and the computer wont boot again..
I copied the bios driver to a flashdrive, but it says there is no bios file on it when i try to open it in the bios.
I don't know what to do next.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I updated the BIOS to 11.1
Instead of getting stuck in black screen, the computer just keeps rebooting over and over.
I changed my monitor, but same problem.
He switches between monitor modes and stops at 'no signal', then he reboots on his own.

Hi,

Could you please try reinstalling Windows using Windows 7 disc and check if the issue persists again?

Thank you.
