    hi, I'm new here, and need help updating my bios, i know my way around a computer a bit, but this has got me stuck, i have no floppy drive, so thats out of the question, i just bought a CD burner, tried that once didn't seem to do anything, may have burnt it wrong i really don't know, could use some step by step instructions
    the motherboard is an abit IB9, i have already found the correct update for it, any help would be greatly appreciated

    Is there a specific problem with your board that a BIOS update corrects? If not, I would leave it alone.

    Here is a link from Abit that explains the flashing process in detail.

    Additionally, it is reported that Abit ceased motherboard manufacture at the end of 2008. If you should encounter a problem with the flash and need to RMA the board you may or may not be able to do so. I would proceed with caution.

    thank you for the info, unfortunately i have already read that and it didn't help much, the reason I'm trying to update my bios is that i just bought a printer/scanner and if it's plugged in when i start my PC nothing happens no screen at all, customer support told me that this should fix the problem, i haven't been able to find any other way but the bios, witch is most definitely a last resort,
