You will need the exact model number for you m/b. Using a free program such as PCWizard2008 you can find out the m/b model and the existing bios version . Go to the manufacturer's website and see if there is a later version. Download the firmware and follow the instructions for flashing the new firmware. Do not turn off the PC until the flashing is complete!

You have few ways.one the clasic one.download a new version of bios,make a bootable floppy or cd and in dos mode rewrite the new bios.
-you can put it on  a syick and make it bootable
-if supported by your actual bios as an option flash it using this bios option
-you can also update it by using some software specific from your motherboard instalation cd.
everyway you choose be carefull.flasing or updating the bios is a very delicate operation and can severly damage your board.
so if you are not sure you can do it better talk to someone who did it several times before  and let him do it.
good luck
bye

SOURCE: bios flash

Hello,
firstly i want to tell you that every motherbord bios has a unique program to control the devices.
it this bios is fit on another board casing then you try to firstly run the mother board with old bios. then copy the bios code by any flashing tool and then remove this bios and fit the dead mother board bios in the casing then flash it and then update it which file you copy the old one.
then your motherboard perhaps go on with the dead motherboard bios.
thanks

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. :-)

Black screen of death


What do you mean "Flash Bios"? If you have updated your BIOS and it has failed, that is it. You need to fit a new programmed BIOS chip or the mother board is toast.

How to upgrade bios


If you're talking about flashing the BIOS on the mother board, you must go to the website for your specific mother board or brand of computer. Go to the Dell site for a Dell, HP site for an HP computer and so on. The site will ask you to identify your specific computer. Then you'll be able to get a list of drivers, upgrades and BIOS updates that may be available for your computer. Note: Flashing the BIOS is not to be undertaken lightly as this can kill a mother board if something goes wrong.

Bad bios flash, backup gives bad checksum error. downloaded correct ver - still bad checksum. what should I do? AMI bios ver 1.0


Is the mother board working? If so, why are you flashing the bios? If the bios is bad and can not be flashed, you may be able to buy a pre-flashed chip if it uses a removable flash chip. Try this site but you can find others on the Internet.
