Bios Flashing

Hello again everyone,
In my persuit (which seems never ending) to get my pc to run smoothly (not crashing).
I downloaded and ran sandra burn-in wizard. After it has completed it offers tips on how to improve ur system.
The only tips it offered me were upgrading my motherboard and video bios.
At the moment they are running on the original versions that came already installed on them.
i know that newer versions of the bios can be downloaded from epox, but i wouldnt have a clue how to update my pc with the new bios's.
And as for the video bios um in the dark again, dont even know where i could get them.

can anyone tell me the process of flashing my bios or any links to information about it.

any help would be gratefully recieved as i think(hope) this will solve some of my problems, but if not, hey an update cant be a bad thing!

You'll find all you need to flash the BIOS here:

Don't bother flashing the video BIOS. If it goes wrong the card will be useless.

If you use the floppy disk method, I recommend flashing with more parameters :
/py/sn/cc/cd/cp/QI/F/R.
With "awdflash /?" you can always check what exactly they do.

good luck!

It's not really worth flashing the video bios, there isn't really any performance ganis to be had frm it, the only reason to do it is if there is a bug with the current one, or for increased voltage etc..
The safest way to flash a bios is with a dos bootable floppy, and to have the bios files on a fat32 hd partition, theres less chance of failure than keeping the files on a floppy. You also want to have a floppy with an autoexec.bat file containing a command for an unprompted flash, that way if the flash does fail, you can recover the system with the boot disk
