    I am no expert, but when I needed to update my BIOS in an old Compaq, someone here suggested to go to their website and click support. Type search what you need and it should be available with instructions.

    Only attempt the update (a) if it is essential that you do so (not just for some minor extra bells and whistles) and (b), if you have full details about how to backup and restore your current BIOS in case things go wrong.

    A computer with a fried BIOS is just a paperweight!

    Remember some PC manufacurers use custom Award bios's, so you must use a bios update from that particular manufacturer, ie; Dell, HP, Toshiba.

    Post your exact model number for more help.
