2. Set an identification Mark, on the bios chip, by the permanent marker because you need to remove and install it. It could not be possible for all mother board.clip_image011.gifclip_image012.gifclip_image002.gifclip_image013.gif

4.For Intel mother board ,install a floppy drive and switch on the power and, watch the "led light",( floppy drives )either Blink with a long times or not.
If the floppy drives led light on, download updated bios your Intel mother board,and use a floppy disk for restore the bios , Download link.http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&keyword=%22865%22.

5. Don't switch off your motherboard at the time of updating the bios, so please use ups and insert the floppy, along with bios file. Set the cmos jumper in recovery mode (just change the normal position). http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/cs-023360.htmhttp://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/s5520ur/sb/CS-030161.htmNow switch on motherboard, hope, through these processes,should recover the mother board.

I have a desktop with an amer megatrend bios.I want to get a new bios that works with win 8.1 and needs to have support for PAE,NX.and SSE2


It's best to simply replace the entire Mother Board than try to replace the BIOS. Replacing a Mother Board vs replacing a BIOS is way easier.

Your current BIOS MIGHT work if you can find a flash file for it, but you have to be careful. If the BIOS your flashing isn't in production it's usually only PATCH flash file, to fix a problem with a BIOS, not upgrade it. And if you use the wrong flash file, it will TRASH your BIOS!

The BIOS, which is a chip, is usually micro-soldered to the Mother Board with high precision, by a robotic arm, and not easily removed or duplicated. The exception is if you happen to have a BIOS chip, that can be replaced, in a socket, but this is unusual instead of common.

The best source for BIOS info such as you are looking for is the American Megatrends Website itself at: AMI American Megatrends Inc Aptio (compatible with Windows 8) however their website is for the Mother Board manufacturer so you can't buy the BIOS as a consumer, but through a reseller, AMI Office, Authorized Representatives, etc (AMI American Megatrends Inc How to Buy).

You can however, buy a replacement Mother Board with a BIOS already installed on it (that's the way you usually buy them - with the BIOS pre-installed on the Mother Board) that's PAE, NX, and SSE2 and whatever else you want compatible. A great website to find computer parts and kits, new, refurbished, out of box, etc is the Tiger Direct Website at: TigerDirect com Electronics Tablets Phones Office Supplies Video Games. Just search for BIOS to find your specs, then check the bottom for possible best Mother Board kits to replace the one you have now. Hope this helps. :-)

I have changed the motherboard from Intel to Gigabyte(GA-G32M ES2L) since then the problem of my pc freezing while playing games started. My configuration is Processor:Pentium D...


1) Make sure that your Power Source is giving enough energy to the new Mother Board and make sure it's compatible.
2) Make sure that the new Mother Board is compatible with all of your current hardware, you can check this in the webpage from the Mother Board Company.
3) Check the voltage requirements for the Mother Board, check the BUS speed of the Mother Board and compatibility with the transfer speed of each of your current hardware.
4) It's never recommended yo change only a Mother Board since usually there's going to be problems with the rest of the hardware if it wasn't changed, if the problem persists, you'll have to buy new hardware that is compatible with your new Mother Board.
5) If you know how a BIOS works and how to configure one, you could also check the configuration in the BIOS, not sure it will work but it's worth a try if you know what you're doing.

Hi! I need 81845gvm-rz cd bios . My m/s rev 1.0,


You cannot get bios from cd. Bios are installed from companies who make motherboards and they cannot be deleted. The companies install bootable bios after making motherboards. Discuss this problem to your PC distributor.
