BIOS Flash- Where do I get the files.

  Suzuki ITFC 20:12 16 May 2004

I want to add USB ports and I think that i have to flash my BIOS for this to work. Where can i get the files i need. The following is info from BIOS Agent about my current BIOS:

BIOS Date: 02/02/96
BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v4.50PG
BIOS ID: 02/02/96-i430FX-2A59CE1NC
OEM Sign-On: TR5510 AIO Ver2.2 02/02/1996
Chipset: Intel Triton 430FX rev 2
Superio: UMC 8663B rev 0 found at port 108h

Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

Suzuki ITFC,

Bios updates usually come from your motherboard

So as radi8or says you go to the manufacturers website which is ECS click here and pick the download for the motherboard you have, make sure you pick the correct motherboard Bios instructions are on the site. I hope you realise that if you get it wrong you can make the motherboard unusable? Why do you think you have to flash the Bios to get your USB to work or to add more USB ports? You usually only have to flash the Bios when you're upgrading the processor or such like.

So flashing the bios wont make USB work. I thought that flashing the BIOS would make USBs work because I have an old system and added a USB pci card, it didn't work so i thought that it wasn't recognised in BIOs because it is to old. (1996 I think)

You should have a cd with the pci card,install the drivers and the usb port should work
