    we'll need to find out what kind of comp you have first. is it a dell, hp, ect. if it's not a manufactured pc then you'll need to find out what kind of mother board you have

    if it's a manufactured pc, what make and model IE ( dell dimension 4400, compaq persario 1100,)

    thanks

    I am not familiar with qtech. Is this a pre-built system or did you have someone do a custom build for you? If it is a pre-built system, you need to get the bios update from the builder. If it is a custom build that you had done, then you download the update from ecs.

    The reason is that big box systems like dell, etc often use an intel or asus board however the boards use a custom bios and cannot be flashed with a standard intel or asus bios.

    Next before you flash the bios, make sure you fully understand the procedure. An incorrect bios flash can render the system unbootable.
