    You buy the BIOS chipset already programmed. Old chipset is unsoldered, and new one soldered in. Some motherboards actually have a socket on them, that a BIOS chipset can be unplugged from, and the new one plugged in. Some motherboards have two BIOS chipsets on them, and when one fails, the other is brought into action. A BIOS program costs THOUSANDS of dollars. The pre-built computer companies have the BIOS program written for them, and a BIOS chipset manufacturer makes the BIOS chipset, and programs it. Is this towards a Latitude D610 Notebook PC?

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. :-)

Buying a used laptop with a password protected bios

Folks when you are considering buying a used laptop. NEVER buy one that has a password protected bios. If you are looking at it and its not in a Windows screen asking for a password DONT buy it unless the seller shows you they can log on past it. Then make sure in that case you have that password when you leave. There is NO bios password work around, no program that can get past a firmware password at all. I think today I posted at least 10 times the same answer for people asking for a bios password. If they say they forgot it then that laptop is a paper weight unless your buying it for parts only.

I need a bios start up disk

What have you done?

Did you try to update the BIOS, and did the update fail?

If so, then it's cheaper & much simpler to buy a new motherboard
than it is to buy a PROM-programmer device,
remove the PROM from your computer,
stick it into the PROM-programmer,
and then program a new BIOS onto the PROM.

Hi syednayeem, please click on the link posted & read about check some error.
Before flashing you're bios. Buy another battery. Or you can test the voltage of the battery. It should read 3.0 volts DC. You can
buy a new battery from places like RadioShack.
The most common bios battery looks like this, (Click on the link).
