: Hi All,

: I have a motherboard.. make unknown
: I have the bios info and the chipset info
: Bios (award) : 09/18/1998-vp3-586b-w977-2a5leecac-00
: Chipset (via) : VT82C598mvp

: How do I go about getting a bios upgrade? is there any way to get hold of the manufacturer from this information? (I have a feeling it may be by DTK but their website is not responding)

: Any help appreciated
: Cheers
: Will

You have a tough problem. You need to know your mainboard maker, model and hardware revision - may be printed on the board. Suggest that you follow the motherboard ID article at:

Your mainboard maker MAY be out of business. If you just "want" to update your BIOS - reconsider. If a BIOS update will not cure a specific problem that YOU have or provide a feature that you NEED there is nothing to be gained and plenty to lose if you misflash the BIOS.

If you need large HDD support consider getting it with an ATA/66 or ATA/100 expansion card; they support HDDs up to about 128GB.

Good Luck,
