Hi,

I've flashed the 1.19, VT works, you have to load bios default setting. But IT seems to be very slow. I'm waiting for 2.0 bios and hope win 2008 hyper V will work faster.

I did back to 1.18 BIOS because after installing newest updates for WinXP PRO (with SP3) the laptop goes unstable (& freeze when i left it on it's own for longer moment, so when i back it's dead and only hard reset helps, but mouse cursor is still working. I think something that wake him up has been changed in some winxp update & it's not longer works with 1.19 as it should).

well when i back to 1.18 VT works great & there are no such freezing laptop problems :)

So everyone please back to 1.18 if u feel your laptop is unstable :)

Well AFAIK Compal will not release any newer BIOS for FL90 systems because it is no longer supported. Sorry guys. 1.19 (unstable) beta is last release, and i recommend using 1.18.

Hi, I flashed may compal fl90 with 1.19 which I found here and now my laptop turned to brick - it even does not start at all, just turns on power light and thats all. Is there some way to recover?

p.s.

previously was using bios 1.07 - had some issues with new RAM so decided to flash new bios

artishox it is better to update BIOS version by version, 1.07 to 1.08, 1.08 to 1.09 etc.

It is also strange that your laptop do not start.

There is method to repair it. you just need USB floppy drive for that, empty floppy disk and old verion of BIOS.

Here are all the files that you will need for that and instructions: fl90tools.rar

Give it a try. Tell us if you made it :)

Hi guys.

Thanks a lot for the update.

I wanted to give the Windows 7 a chance to impress me when I discovered a Code 12 issue on my graphic card.

After an n update v1.19 everything works like a charm. Thanks again

Hi,

After using your bios iso my compal wanted password to start up. Can someone help ?

Impossible, BIOS files do not have password inside (password is saved in CMOS not in BIOS).

And for anyone else, please use 1.18 instead of 1.19. There are some problems with 1.19.

I do not plan releasing modded BIOS as .iso image because it "may be" not stable as original version.

It looks like Your file is broken, try to download again, from other source maybe.

Another problem may be old winrar bersion. Try to use the newest.

It is little hard to update BIOS in Compal, because we need to boot in DOS mode & then do it.

So i prepared CD image in .iso format, so anyone can record it & start computer with such CD.

It will work automatically then ;-)

UPDATE!!!

BIOS version 1,13. Here is link to my package that automatically change BIOS, that uses today released BIOS v1.13 (10-27-2007):

BUMP

ive recently come into 2 compal fl90s both with bad 8600 gt cards... ive seen everything avalible for the compal fl90/ifl90, sager np2090... im aware that the easy fix is to get the ati card... but im looking into working on this http://www.ebay.com/itm/251074865580?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 this is a 9300/9400 gs but modeled for a fl90...

 

ive not done ANYTHING with the laptops as i only want to have to open either of them once...

 

also im wondering about using the jhl model 8600 gt seeing as how its "suppossedly" the redone chispet and pcb which is to be less faulty (going on the fact the the jhl models where released about 1yr after the i/fl)...
