: I want to upragete my MAIN BOARD Bios but I don`t know how :(
: I have only few parameters:

: BIOS ID: 2A69KPNDC-00
: BIOS TYPE: Award Software Inc.
: BIOS DATE: 03/02/1999
: CHIPSET ID: i440zx-ali513
: OEM INFO: B687ZX BIOS Ver:1.2 N ROM

: PLEASE HELP


WHY do you want to "upgrade" your BIOS? There is NO NEED to "update" BIOS if your PC is working OK and you have all the features the board can produce. If you "update" anyway you have NOTHING to gain and your BIOS to corrupt.

If you NEED a BIOS update you should look for a free upate AND update instructions on the mainboard maker's web site. If all info is correct it appears your mainboard was made by Procomp at:

http://www.procomp.com.tw/
and:
http://www.procomp.com.tw/procomp/usa

You will need to figure out your mainboard model and version. Be CERTAIN that you get the right BIOS update - if you use the wrong update you will corrupt your BIOS.

Good Luck,
Henry
