You might be able to update the BIOS(re-flash) by checking your pc manufacturer's website and searching by model for drivers and downloads.

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. :-)

MY MOTHERBOARD WON'T BOOT ERROR BIOS IS NOT FULLY ACPI COMPLIANT


Run BIOS configuration...power on...then press the DEL to run BIOS setup configuration...if you cannot access this process. Your Motherboard BIOS IC is defective and need to replace it. But most of this kind of problem...technicians replace the whole MOTHERBOARD with new one.
So, I suggest you to replace the motherboard with new. Do not intent to replace the BIOS IC because it will not work...due to different programming language depending on the brand of BIOS. Because AWARD and PHOENIX has different configuration...

Bios replacing


You will need to download the BIOS installation software for DOS if they have one from the motherboard manufacturer and the BIOS file. You will then need to make a bootable dos cd-r disc using windows. Once you have done this you can use the disc to start your computer in DOS mode. Then burn the BIOS DOS SOFTWARE and the BIOS FILE on a cd-r. Then you will be able to run the BIOS software from dos and install the bios file. You could also install windows on a USB hard drive then try to boot from it if your computer can boot from USB and the USB boot device option is still working.

Toshiba Satellite M35 and BIOS/CPU Replacement


No the BIOS is not a replaceable chip. Yes the BIOS can be reflashed once the computer is working. And, definitely Yes. An overheated CPU will definitely cause a shutdown.

Bios problem in A8N-VM


Hi jino284, you're bios has become corrupted. One reason for this can be the cmos battery is no longer holding its 3volt
charge. Virus can also cause corruption. Power off the PC & unplug the power cord. Open the case & pull the cmos battery. (Its about the size of a quarter). Check the 3 volt battery with a volt meter. If the battery reads less than 3 volts replace it with a new battery. If the battery checks good than fash the bios. Go to Asus web site & download the Bios - Utilities.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=A8N-VM&SLanguage=en-us
Than download the bios file.
Instruction on how to flash you're bios.

I'm betting the cmos/bios batter needs replaced.

Good Luck!
