: now i have this motheboard with original BIOS but i want to change my CPU to newer but new i have AMD k6-2 350Mhz and thats all that this motheboard can, maybe someone know if i upgrade my BIOS can i get in beter CPU?


You may be able to put in a faster CPU and have it run OK but without BIOS update the BIOS might display the wrong CPU speed. You should try to find the BIOS update ONLY IF NEEDED at the mainboard makers web site:
http://www.atrend.com.tw/

You will need to know mainboard model and hardware revision. Use ONLY the BIOS for YOUR mainboard. If you use the BIOS for a different mainboard or if you misflash the BIOS you will have to recover corrupt BIOS.

Read the Release Notes for the BIOS updates - that should tell you which CPUs are supported. The latest BIOS update usually includes all of the changes made since the beginning, so you need to update the BIOS only once.

Good Luck,
Henry
