: You should try to find a BIOS at your mainboard maker's web site. You need to know your mainboard maker, your mainboard model number and hardware revision number (possibly on the board). IF you get the BIOS update for the wrong board some or all of your mainboard functions may not work - that is, if anything works at all. Note that some boards differ by a revision number ONLY, but that is enough difference to cause BIG TROUBLE. READ the BIOS release notes carefully - there is nothing to be gained if the update will not solve your problem (support HDD >40GB). If BIOS update won't help consider an ATA/66 or ATA/100 expansion card - supports HDDs to 128GB.

: If you need to figure out your mainboard model just follow the motherboard ID article at:
