: I am trying to find an updated bios for my Compaq Presario 5724. Can someone please tell me what I need to do and where I need to go to be able to get this?

Why do you think you need a BIOS "update"? I STRONGLY URGE that you DO NOT alter your BIOS unless you have a problem that must be fixed to make your PC run right or you need a feature the update provides for certain. Study the release notes to be sure what you are getting before you flash your BIOS.

Have you tried compaq? The maker is usually the most reliable source for BIOS updates, if any exist:
http://www.compaq.com

compaq's web site is a little hard to dig around until you are familiar with it (search for your model number). If you can't find updates of any kind, try e-mail to compaq. Lots of their updates are free - I recently got an update CD for my old 486 - and compaq didn't even charge for mailing it.

Good Hunting,
Henry
