Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Generally, you need to go to the web site of the board manufacturer. AMI sells BIOSes to many manufacturers, who each may require slight modifications- meaning that no one upgrade will work for all boards.

Sometimes I’ve found it helpful to go over the board with a good light and a magnifying glass to find the manufacturer, or some number that I can Google which will lead me to the manufacturer.

Good luck,

Bob

    Go to the American Megatrends web page, http://www.ami.com/, click on the Bios Update icon, identify your motherboard and download the bios. The instructions on the site appear intuitive. Updating a bios is simply if you carefully follow the directions. Read all the required steps BEFORE attempting the update. Good luck.
