I need BIOS ACPI for windows 2000 professional at the moment i have inside : ACPI Vers.1.000 12


If you are looking to upgrade your BIOS, you will need to find the manufacturer information for your motherboard. After you have the manufacturer, make, and model for your motherboard, you can then go to the motherboard manufacturers website to obtain the upgrade.

The BIOS is not related to what operating system you have. The BIOS is the software used to tell the hardware in your computer (such as the hard drive, disk drive) how to work.

Tip

Firmware upgrade


NEVER EVER UPGRADE UR FIRMWARE OF ANY HARDWARE(MP3, SOUNDCARD, BIOS, MOBILE, DVD PLAYER, ETC)
UR HARDWARES DO NOT REQUIRE ANY UPGRADE OF FIRMWARE
THEY ARE MENT TO WORK THE WAY THEY WERE MFG
MOST OF THE MFGS DONT RECOMEND ANY FIRMWARE UPGRADE UNLESS THERE IS A LARGE CHANGE IN THE FUNCTION OF THE HARDWARE AFTER U BOUGHT THE HARDWARE AND IF IT IS COMPATIBLE FOR THE CHANGE.

SO NEVER EVER UPGRADE FIRMWARES OF UR HARDWARES.

IF U DO, IT WILL BE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND YOU MAY DAMAGE THE EQUIPMENT / TOTALLY LOSE THE HARDWARE FUNCTIONS.

I upgraded my os to xp pro sp2 however drivers no longer work after the upgrade


thats a common probablem if you are upgrading your os.. because some drivers are not compatible to your os so you need to update the drivers by going to the manufacturers website of your hardware.... for example: "if your sound card is realtek then you need to go to realtek.com to download drivers".

I want to boot from usb devices, but the bios of my notebook (Acer Aspire 1406 LC) does not have this capability. Where can I download a bios upgrade? thank you


Go to your manufactures web site, if there is an upgrade they'll have it or be able to tell you where you can get it.

Your hardware may not support booting from USB in which case you won't be able to find the correct BIOS upgrade.

Microsoft is unable to determine the exact cause of this error. However, this problem was most likely caused by an error in your computer?s random access memory (RAM). RAM is the main internal storage area...


What are you doing when this happens? It sounds like you will have to get a BIOS upgrade weather you like it or not. Visit the motherboard manufacturer's website and obtain the BIOS update from there.

How to flash my BIOS


Flashing Your BIOS

General Instructions:
Flashing [aka upgrading] your bios should be the last resort to solve a problem. Most people flash to gain the use of larger hard drives although recently, many are flashing to get all the features of XP to work. Other people have to upgrade their bios just to get XP to work properly with some specific hardware.

A couple of items are really important if you decide to flash. First. Make sure the updated bios addresses the issue you are trying to solve. eg many motherboard makers update their bios's for many different reasons. A reason may simply be to get a certain big name brand of pc to work correctly with a new cd writer big brand pc is selling.

So you really have to read the docs so see if the upgrade addresses your specific niggle or concern. Secondly, try your motherboard maker first to see if they have the files you need. Bios's upgrades are best had, if available, from the company that made your motherboard or pc. In most cases these are free.

Thirdly, READ THE DOCS CAREFULLY AND FOLLOW THEM TO THE LETTER. Dont skip any steps, especially the backup option if available. Fourth, if the upgrade calls for a clean bootdisk, use one. The disk I made especially for bios flashing is the one you can download above. It's a DrDOS bootdisk with NO drivers loading up in config.sys or autoexec.bat which is very important. My bios flash bootdisk is recommended by the most popular motherboad makers.

If you dont have a 1.44 drive I also created a utility to use to flash from a CD which you can add the new bios and flash utility to and then burn it.

It should have room to add your new bios, the flash utility, and also have room for the backup. If not one can always use another disk for the info. Always use BRAND NEW MEDIA when dealing with flashes.

In order to locate the correct bios upgrade for your motherboard you need to know who made it AND you need to know the model number. If your PC was made locally perhaps you have the manual. If not, then you need to find out the maker and model. Or, and very common with major brands, your computer maker will/may have the updated bios's on their website.

I have one windows and three dos utils that find your motherboard maker and model number. One of them should work for you. The DOS utils are on my DOStools Page under Diagnostics, and are called CTbios, MBID, and HW iNFO. The windows utility is called BIOS Agent and is on my Utilities Page under Hardware .

Once you ID your motherboard and model go the the manufacturers website and see what they have available. Note that some upgrades will come with their own bootdisk/utility so you may not need the disk I made.

Again, note that even tho many people flash their bios regularly to get the latest features and never have a problem, I still recommend it as a last resort as a flash gone bad will make your pc unusable if the backup doesn't work. Look at it this way, suppose I have a used 80 gig drive I want to resuse and my old P400 cant even detect it so I have an unusable pc. This is the best, and most common reason to flash.

On the other hand, if you have a more modern pc that cant see lets say a 180 gig drive and but all else is working properly then you may want to consider a PCI hard drive controller card which has an onboard bios that will see your new large hard drive and also come with 2 more IDE channels you can use in addition to the 2 channels you already have. This is safer than flashing the bios.

Upgrading


Hello densola,

Do you want to keep your current motherboard? If that is the case, then you'll need to...

Check w/ the motherboard manufacturer for documentation on that board. This will give you the maximum specs (RAM and CPU) that the motherboard will support.

As for changing the BIOS, that's a whole other matter. The BIOS is written to firmware that resides in an IC that is soldered onto the motherboard. You can, however, check w/ the manufacturer to see what their latest BIOS update is. In fact, you'll likely need the latest BIOS update in order to support the hardware changes.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have more questions, etc on this topic.

Thank you
BJ
