New PSU and Videocard in Sony VGC-RA840G (yuck, I know)
I hope Everest did its job:
Operating System Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 5.1.2600
Computer:
OS Service Pack Service Pack 3
DirectX 4.09.00.0904 (DirectX 9.0c)
Motherboard:
CPU Type DualCore Intel Pentium D 820, 2800 MHz (14 x 200)
Motherboard Name Unknown
Motherboard Chipset Intel Lakeport i945P
System Memory 1024 MB (DDR2-533 DDR2 SDRAM)
BIOS Type Award (05/18/05)
Video Adapter ATI Radeon X300/X550/X1050 Series (128 MB)

Motherboard 05/18/2005-LakePort-P5LP-VX-00
Motherboard 1001
Motherboard DMIMOBO: ASUSTek Computer INC. P5LP-VX
Motherboard DMISYS: Sony Corporation VGC-RA840G

I have a Cosair 450W psu for my new EVGA e-GeForce 9600 GT KO.
When I installed Cosair, I got an error message that said the fan wasn't detected, though it spins fine. BIOS outdated, right? (three years out of date)
I finally found that it's an AUStek motherboard in the debug section of the Everest report, though now I can't find the model number.

So close! And I'll for sure need a hard disk to update my BIOS when(!) I find the update with your help, right?
How self-sufficient is a BIOS update? Meaning: How easily can I screw it up?

Help anyone? Thanks in advance.

Apparently I got it:
Asus p5lp-vx motherboard
Problem is, Sony built it custom and never (surprise!) released any BIOS updates for it.
...Now where are those return receipts...?
