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. :-)

If same as before now please take a risk and ready to chip label repair,

clip_image010.jpg
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
3. Remove bios chip from base, clean with solvent and install it proper again.It could not be apply for all mother board.ONLY FOR INTEL PLATFORM
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 can not upade bios alweys I see upade microprosesor If I restart


I advise caution when attempting to update the BIOS on any PC as if it becomes corrupt, the mother board is un serviceable without removing the BIOS chip.
Always use the BIOS programme downloaded direct from the manufacturer and NEVER from a third party!
I hope you are successfull and this information helps.

How can i get to command prompt in dos through bios?


Sorry but basically you cant access command propmt through the bios. The command prompt is part of the operating system of the pc, either as DOS (disk operating system) or part of windows.
The BIOS (Basic Input output system) which is on a rom(read only memory) chip on the mother board, and initiates post(power on self test) when the computer starts, without the bios the computer would not boot up at all. To access the command prompt you must have a operating system installed, ie Windows. hope this helps.
