I need updates for my BIOS in order to run Windows XP.
I don't want to pay for the update so dont tell me to go to the award site.
I really need the updates. It is a via MPV4 chipset. Details are below.

DONT TELL ME TO GO TO THE MAINBOARD MAKERS WEBSITE. I HAVE CHECKED FOR SEVERAL WEEKS, looking for the BIOS update. So far, I have only found a very expensive payment in order to get the update. I am looking for a free solution, so only tell me if i can get this update for free. I need the bin file so I can flash my BIOS, I don't want to pay for an expensive update kit. I REALLY NEED IT FOR Windows XP to work!!!!!!!!
