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 recently updated my bios of mother board g31-m7te,how to roll back to old bios


Why do you think that you need to roll-back?
Each BIOS-update typically is 95% the "same" as the previous, so it's strange that the "new" 5% could be causing a problem.
What has stopped working?

Did you use the BIOS-update utility to create a 'backup' of the old BIOS? If so, re-flash with that code.

If not, look at the web-site from where you got the updated BIOS;
perhaps, it also offers back-level versions of the BIOS.
Re-flash your BIOS, with the older code.

Dear Friends i have used in gigabyte mother board model no:GA-G41M-ES2L the problem is how i update my bios now is currently used in old version 1.0 but i have to update my bios pls tell me and solve...


you need to flash the bios .

download the new bios from gigabyte website and follow their instructions on how to update bios. be very carefull when doing this because if done incorrectly it would render your motherboard useless permanently .

in my experience if your m/b is working its best not to update the bios only time i would update the bios would be if the new bios update has new features that i really needed . if not i would not really flash the bios .

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.

D865GVHZ mother board Doesnt boots


Hi,
If everything was working fine before, and you flashed bios unsuccessfully, then yes, if would be a bios problem.

If you didn't flash the bios you should check the connections on your monitor. If that's okay then check your memory, hard drive and cpu.

Good luck,
Hank

I want to upgrade my HP BA 600 Mother Board`s RAM Capacity


Hello,
Most likely your MB is too old for this upgrade although there is a chance you could flash your bios (reprogram your computer's brain to accept the new memory providing hp has a flash for it).
here is a link for the latest bios flash for your computer, use at your own risk.

good luck.

Motherboard BIOS softwere for update


The process of upgrading the BIOS on a computer is also
called "FLASHING" the BIOS.

On very old computers (486 and older) the BIOS may be
permanently programmed into read-only memory chips,
which are not flash-able, although it may be possible to
replace the chips, or re-program them using special
equipment by a qualified technician.

On virtual all modern computers, the BIOS can be updated
using new data and a special FLASH program available via
download from the manufacturer.

This is a very dangerous procedure that can destroy the
motherboard if performed incorrectly, and should not be
performed unless absolutely necessary, such as when
you computer or software will not run properly without it.

Most mother board manufacturer's (for example Asus) offer
software patches and downloads on their web site, as well
as BIOS upgrades.

Note that the BIOS is 100% board specific, installing the wrong
BIOS can permanently destroy *********** board, so make sure
that you download the correct one for your board.

Once you have the downloaded the BIOS upgrade, there are 3
possibilities:

1) The downloaded file is self-installing, either from Windows,
or it creates a boot-able diskette, which in turn contains all
the files needed to update (FLASH) the BIOS.

2) The BIOS comes with a a separate installer (.exe) which
either runs from Windows or via a boot-able diskette.

3) The existing BIOS has a "built-in" flash utility, accessable
through the BIOS settings. This utility runs at a very low
level without any operating system to self-update the BIOS
from your download binary file, located on the hard drive or
on a diskette.

This is by far the best and safest way to do the job, but only
if your motherboard and (existing BIOS) has that capability.

===
In any event, the first step is to visit the manufacturer's WEB
site, then go to SUPPORT or DOWNLOADS.

Find the exact model and version number of you motherboard
in the manufacturer's list, and download the latest BIOS
update, and any installation (or flashing) utilities that come
with it.

1) Follow the manufacturer's instruction exactly !!!!

2) Do not turn off the computer until the BIOS update is
complete, and you are instructed to do so !!!

N.B.
The computer BIOS is the lowest level program on your PC,
without which the computer CANNOT read the disk drives or
perform the lowest necessary functions.

If the BIOS is damaged, or
If the wrong upgrade is installed, or
If the upgrade is performed incorrectly, or
If the upgrade is interrupted or crashes before finishing,

the computer may become unable to repair itself, and
the mother-board may become permanently unusable.

(This depends on the actual mother-board and BIOS design,
and on the damage done by the failed installation)

Good luck,
