    Hi there, I need to flash my BIOS, they give all the explanation, just up to the part of how to make a DOS boot disk. I guess the manufactures of the AWARD BIOS assume that everyone learnt how to use a computer during the days of dos.
    Could someone please explain in detail how I'm to make one.
    I've recently flashed my videocard Bios and now it's alot better than before. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Debe... If you woulddn't mind me asking, I have a rather old Intel PII 434 MHz 224 mbs ram, and 15 gig HDD machine, my Mainboard is a Shuttle HOT 661. Could you yourself point me in the right direction to help me speed up my machine? who or where do I go in here for answwers? I'm very new here, and cannot afford a new computer, and would rather speed-up what I have. Would putting more memory help ?

    You have plenty of memory installed. If it's running slow, then it may just need some good cleaning. We could take a look at what you have starting up. See if you have unnecessary programs starting when your computer starts and running in the background. It will also give us a chance to look for any spyware that might have gotten installed. All these things can relate to a slowdown.
    Go here...........

    and download the Startup list program. Run it and it will create a text file that you can copy and paste in your reply for us to see.

    I might not be around later, but someone will be glad to help you.
