    hey guys, i have an HP ze 1210 hp laptop. everytime i turn on the comp, it freezes up. sometimes it does so after 20 seconds, sometimes after 10 mins. i read on some sites that i need to update the bios. hp's site only has an .exe with two files in it that i extracted: copydisk.exe and bios.img. the problem is i don't have a floppy drive so i'm guessing i need to create a bios boot disc. can someone help me out. thanks.

    http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm

    Make yourself a bootable cd with the files on that website and then change the boot order in the bios to boot from cd first then you're good to go.
