http://www.viatech.com/drivers/index.htm lists the updates for the VIA chipset. As you know, if you actually need the BIOS update, it's a different beast entirely.

You need to find out the specific make/model of your system board. Lots of manufacturers use the Via Chipset, yet each may have a different Bios set, and withing those bios sets, certain boards can only be flashed to a certain version of Bios.

Post Make/Model of Motherboard
Bios version

Then we may be able to help you and point you in the right direction.

Angie boot your system and when the start up screen begins look at the top to see who is the manufacturer of your BIOS is,then get the manual or look up the type system you have and see what motherboard you are using.
You will then have the info toupdate your bios,most Pentium systems with Intel inside will mostly use Awards bios,check these two sites for upgrades
www.awards.com-formerly Phoenix
www.tomshardware.com-gives great info on motherboards and bios upgrades.
Cannot be more specific with info not enough information about your system,you may want to repost and give more info about the motherboard and type.
