PC Chips M870 mobo...

I am trying to update the BIOS on my PC Chips M870 v2.0 motherboard to fix a known issue with RAM (click here for the post). I have downloaded the latest BIOS from manufacturers site plus the flash utility to do it. But when I try the flash program says that the BIOS file is "not award bios". BIOS type is Pheonix Award BIOS.

Any ideas?

As you may be aware, Elite Computer Systems now owns the PC Chips and Matsonic mobo brand names (it also wholly produces Acer desktop systems).

This link may be of interest (see bit about ECS 755-A2 and PC Chips M870 V2.0 being identical motherboards, except for branding and
color scheme):

It states that ECS has a more recent BIOS update for this board, but whether it will be OK to use with yours I don't know.

Cheers mate! Got the updates BIOS for the ECS board as you said. Worked a treat. Had to reset the jumper at first as it didnt want to play, but works great now.
