Bios update fox Win XP with t-1140

Upgrading your BIOS

Now lets go through the various procedures needed to update your motherboards BIOS.

First you need to find out if there is a BIOS update available for your motherboard model, and if there is, whether you need it. Before we go searching for that information, you will need to locate your motherboard model number/name.

This can be done by looking at the documentation that came with your system, or even just by opening up the case and looking for the name silk screened onto the motherboard.

If you have a system that was built by a major manufacturer, such as Dell or IBM, look on the manufacturers website under your systems name or number to find updates.

If your computer was assembled by a smaller manufacturer, look for the motherboard manual to identify it. If this fails, use a program like Sisoft's Sandra to identify your motherboard model and manufacturer.

To determine your motherboard make and model through Sandra first down load and install the program. Start up Sandra and double click mainboard information.
This should give you both the manufacturers name, and the model number of your motherboard. Note down that information.

Once you have your motherboard manufacturer name and model, its time to find your motherboard's model, current BIOS revision and look up what newer BIOS revisions are available.
There are two ways to do this, the first through the manufacturers automatic BIOS update software, and the second by searching through the manufacturers website support section.

hope this helps

How do i find out which ibm motherboard i have?

Is the motherboard installed in a desktop computer and is it working OK?
If so you can run a program called Everest, there is a trial version you can try. Use this link to the Lavalys WEB site.

If the motherboard is not installed in a desktop computer the look at the motherboard and you can see the make and model number printed somewhere on the motherboard.

Hi tushar_bhavs, all Intel motherboards start with the letter ( D ).
Please click on this Intel link & find which motherboard is yours'.

You can find the correct model number either printed on the motherboard or typed on a sticker in-between the wihte PCI slots. Check all sides of all slots including the IDE slots. If your motherboard came in a case (Pre-assembled) the model number may be found on the case. Every Intel is a little different. Once you find the correct Intel model number, use the link above & click on its link. Choose your operating system from Intel.
Creat a folder on your desktop & name the folder Audio. Download the sound driver software into the audio folder.
TIP: Enter your Bios & make sure the Audio is set to [Enabled] or [Realtek] depending which MB you have.

If you still need help post your issue here & I'll help you further.

Good luck tushar_bhavs!
