I want to update (flash) my bios, but in the event that I make a mess of it, I would like to save my original bios, so I can restore the computer to a working state again. I assume that (if possible)I can save it to a floppy disk, to restart the machine. Any help would be appreciated Thanks Terry
I have purchased an 1800 xp chip for my ECS K7S5A Motherboard,with the Bios American Megatrends 07.00T Bios dated 04/02/01, and it reads at 1150mhz. I need the updated Bios to upgrade to run the processor to its full speed. Terry
do you have 133 ram? if not try 133/100 settings the last update i did was the 2002 bios it was easy enough to do just make sure you have the right flash installer and the right bios for your motherboard version,with or without the lan option.
if you're REALLY paranoid about screwing up your bios, the best way to secure it is to remove the eeprom and make a physical copy using a eeprom programmer and another chip. there's usually someone in your local tech/uni who can do this. the part number of the chip will be under the holographic label.
