If you go to the website for your board they will have the lastest bios upgrade and flash utility. also you will find a text file that tells you what bug fixes the newer bios cures.
be that as it may.... i just don't recommend a bios upgrade if everything is working as you can cause the computer to fail if you flash the incorrect bios etc.

I have a p5kpl-amse moth,board . the BIOS is faulty !! how do Iupdate it ?? I have to push reboot several times to get my computer to start.

Searches for newer BIOS for your board
Assists in flash upgrading your system BIOS to a later version. BIOS Finder determines your system BIOS and when run, cross references Flash upgrade BIOS files you have downloaded from the manufactures web site. If a later version match is found this BIOS is placed into a directory for you to upgrade to. Great for Y2K issues and beyond, overcome that greater than 8.4 Gig limitation with your BIOS, resolve those video card glitches. Download, run and your on your way to a later BIOS version! (Award only).
This older version will only work on motherboards with 128K bios files. Most boards these days are supplied with 256 or 512K firmware.
hope this helps

Hello, I have intel desktop board 845wn mother board and bios version is ''HV84510A.86A.0029.P07'' Actualy i need to update bios. So I downloaded file from below site....


Hello!

I must write again, because my conection is fall.
Upgrade bios first time is very hard, and upgrade bios is always dengerous.
First read from the site what you give with upgrade bios, and read all about upgrade.
The best solution is upgrade from the floppy, because you can save present bios, if something move bad.
In some case some part of motherboar isn¨t compatible with win. xp, and upgrade bios is solution for some bug on motherboard (broken sound, better CPU, better grafik card,ide and usb ).
It is question can you give anithing with upgrade bios in your case.

But if you want upgrade, do this:
X:\hv86ap15bi.exe (X - name drive in comp. from you boot )
Than upgrade give you a possibility to save your present bios, if you have a floppy save to them.
When you save or not bios then go far, and when is done you need to restart you comp.

Good luck.

The BIOS bin file is a BIOS upgrade file. It is used to flash the BIOS to upgrade the BIOS version.
This file is has to be downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's WEB site.

Bad bios flash


Hopefully you save a backup copy of the bios before you did the upgrade. If you did then start the upgrade process again and select the original backup copy as the bios file to upgrade. This will put you back where you were before the upgrade.

Can't boot after upgrade bios f6


If you flashed the BIOS and it stopped for whatever reason or you flashed the wrong BIOS version, there is nothing that you can do except to replace the BIOS IC.
  • If the system has a boot block to restore the original BIOS, use it. Refer to your motherboard documentation.

  • If not, you will need to contact the system or motherboard manufacturer for a replacement.

Motherboard BIOS softwere for update


The process of upgrading the BIOS on a computer is also
called "FLASHING" the BIOS.

On very old computers (486 and older) the BIOS may be
permanently programmed into read-only memory chips,
which are not flash-able, although it may be possible to
replace the chips, or re-program them using special
equipment by a qualified technician.

On virtual all modern computers, the BIOS can be updated
using new data and a special FLASH program available via
download from the manufacturer.

This is a very dangerous procedure that can destroy the
motherboard if performed incorrectly, and should not be
performed unless absolutely necessary, such as when
you computer or software will not run properly without it.

Most mother board manufacturer's (for example Asus) offer
software patches and downloads on their web site, as well
as BIOS upgrades.

Note that the BIOS is 100% board specific, installing the wrong
BIOS can permanently destroy *********** board, so make sure
that you download the correct one for your board.

Once you have the downloaded the BIOS upgrade, there are 3
possibilities:

1) The downloaded file is self-installing, either from Windows,
or it creates a boot-able diskette, which in turn contains all
the files needed to update (FLASH) the BIOS.

2) The BIOS comes with a a separate installer (.exe) which
either runs from Windows or via a boot-able diskette.

3) The existing BIOS has a "built-in" flash utility, accessable
through the BIOS settings. This utility runs at a very low
level without any operating system to self-update the BIOS
from your download binary file, located on the hard drive or
on a diskette.

This is by far the best and safest way to do the job, but only
if your motherboard and (existing BIOS) has that capability.

===
In any event, the first step is to visit the manufacturer's WEB
site, then go to SUPPORT or DOWNLOADS.

Find the exact model and version number of you motherboard
in the manufacturer's list, and download the latest BIOS
update, and any installation (or flashing) utilities that come
with it.

1) Follow the manufacturer's instruction exactly !!!!

2) Do not turn off the computer until the BIOS update is
complete, and you are instructed to do so !!!

N.B.
The computer BIOS is the lowest level program on your PC,
without which the computer CANNOT read the disk drives or
perform the lowest necessary functions.

If the BIOS is damaged, or
If the wrong upgrade is installed, or
If the upgrade is performed incorrectly, or
If the upgrade is interrupted or crashes before finishing,

the computer may become unable to repair itself, and
the mother-board may become permanently unusable.

(This depends on the actual mother-board and BIOS design,
and on the damage done by the failed installation)

Good luck,

3. Go to EZ FLASH with ALT + F2 and then insert the 1004 CD wait till Erasing is ready Then Turn OFF your PC :-) so you crashed the bios thats what you need to run the embeded CrashFRee Tool

4 After you turn your PC on insert the 0804 CD then it flashes the this Rom and we are Happy :-)

Windows 200o pinstallation problem on intel 945 motherboard


I think that this can be bypassed on a per boot basis (press F7) on the boot where it asks you to press f8 if there is any problems. (before win2k flash screen)

you can get round this by updating your motherboard's BIOS

To upgrade your bios you need to follow the online instructions carefully.  (mis flashing your BIOS  can stop your board from loading at all)


FOR BOARD D945GCZ!!! WARNING  IF THIS IS NOT YOUR BOARD DO NOT CONTINUE AS THE FILES WILL BE WRONG!!!!

To upgrade to the latest bios  you first need to upgrade to ver 1788 (you cannot go direct to the latest version.. if your current BIOS Version is already 1788 you can skip this

please read and follow the instructions on this page http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=N&Inst=Yes&ProductID=2063&DwnldID=9165&strOSs=19&OSFullName=Windows*+2000&lang=eng
one this is completed you can upgrade to the latest version here
