If you want to update your BIOS you have to go to manufacturer's website, and look for BIOS update for specificaly your model of motherboard.

Previous Post Corrct

Yep, the previous post is exactly right. I just flashed my AwardBIOS last week, as a matter of fact. When I went to Award (I called them, too, actually), they wanted to sell me the entire BIOS chip for $70. I was like, "Hmmm, that can't be right; I should just be able to flash it."

So the long and the short of it is, yes, you have to find out the manufacturer of your motherboard (I think my was ASUS), and then get the correct flash update from there.

Hope that helps!

What chipset is the board??

by paul.aaron In reply to Can't Find motherboard ma ...

Does the board have a recognisable chipset, ie:VIA or Intel??
Also, check the serial number!! Usually the model of board is present somewhere in the serial number!!
