BIOS Date: 08/03/01
BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
BIOS ID: 08/03/2001-8363-686B-6A6LMM4AC
OEM Sign-On: W6330MS V2.9 080301 14:42:47
Chipset: VIA 82C305 rev 3
Superio: VIA 686 rev 64 found at port 7h
OS: Microsoft Windows ME Version: 4.90.3000
CPU: AMD Duron 1200 Mhz MAX: 1200 Mhz
BIOS ROM in Socket: Yes
BIOS ROM Size: 256K
Memory Installed: 768MB

Using the above information, can someone point me to where I can find:

- BIOS upgrade
- BIOS upgrade installation instructions/manual
- A way to backup the original BIOS (if possible)
- sites that go into some detail on the procedure; I've never done this before

I want to install a 200Gig drive but it only sees 137gig. I was told that a BIOS upgrade would solve this problem.

I looked through some of the postings here and they were a little confusing. Not all of the posted info matched mine so I wasn't sure if the advice would work for me and I'm afraid of frying my MB. Also, some of the older posts that had 3 and 4 levels of replies, would only show the original message and none of the replies (no help there).

Thanks in advance for any info.
