Default bios?

when i restart my comp or turn it on(either one) it says the brand of my computer(in this case) SONY then a bunch of letters and numbers come up..example: PCI DEVICE LISTING etc
is there a way to get rid of that?

You can go into your CMOS settings, and there should be a "Quick boot" option, if you disable it I don't think it will show the sony screen.

You could edit your exsisting BIOS and mask that. Then flash the new one. But you would have to know how to make and edit BIO's.

Do you have something against these letters and numbers? Did they violate you in anyway when you were a child? I'm sure you can, flip through your boot settings in BIOS and see what options you have.

this screen is the screen that you see when you start up the computer. POST stands for Power On Self Test. It is here that you will whether you have hooked everything up properly. You should see the computer identify all of the IDE devices that are in the computer. So, if it fails to identify one of your drives, then you probably have done something wrong. Most hardware problems become obvious during the POST screen.
