Ok, one of the two Dell 780 3GHz computers (the one I'm using) that I got has a problem of sorts. These computers are running Win7 Pro 64-bit. The blue progress bar that is seen when the bios is booting up only fills in one segment of the bar length and then goes on to the Windows splash screen. The other 780 completely fills out the bar before going on to the Windows splash screen. Both take about the same time to get to windows. I'm figuring on putting our small business on these two computers and I'm wondering about this discrepancy between the two computers.
The only problem that I've had has to do with a weather website that I put online... www.beeweather.com
...with the problem being on the page www.beeweather.com/gauges-ss.htm
. The gauges work ok but the LCD "tape" forecast at the top does not....both the tape and gauges use the same uploaded text file to operate. The problem appears to be only with this computer with the short "progress bar" as the other computer has no problem with the forecast. The computer that works ok has a version A04 (older) bios while the one I'm having a problem with has a newer bios...A14. I'm wondering if this website issue could be associated with the truncated "progress bar"...if it might be a symptom.
A final question...can I replace the newer A14 bios with the older A04 bios?
