Bios update - How do you do it?

  igram 20:19 29 Mar 2003

I have a PCChips m/board with an AMI Bios

I have downloaded the latest bios from the PCChips site (303010s.rom) and a flash utility (aminf336.exe)

What do I do next?

I'll say my usual to this, and I know others agree, if you don't actually have a problem don't, if it goes wrong which it can very easily, bang goes your motherboard.

Thanks for the advice. I have upgraded a bios on an antiquated m/board in the past - no problems as the manufacturer (Iwill/Award) gave clear instructions and provided all the software.

My new hardware freezes occasionally - so the bios update is to see if that is the fix.

I am still game to give it a try

Bios now updated and problems fixed. The process was easier than I expected. Well done AMI and PC Chips
