: Looking for BIOS upgrade for 04/10/96-i430FX-2A59CPAOC-00. If you can help I would appreciate your help.

Look for BIOS update on the mainboard maker's web site - I think your mainboard was made by Epox at:

You will need to know your model number and maybe hardware version. If you don't know maker, model and version, just follow the motherboard ID article at:

BIOS releases are usually cumulative; the latest release includes all previous "improvements". READ the BIOS Release Notes CAREFULLY - if the notes don't mention a solution to your problem an "update" WILL NOT solve your problem. If you need support for large HDDs the simplest, safest solution is to use an ATA/66 expansion card (HDDs up to about 128GB). If your PC is working OK and you don't need a new feature then DO NOT UPDATE - it WILL NOT improve anything and may do harm (misflashed BIOS is likely).
