: : 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:

: 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,
