    First question: Why do you want to update? If everything is working, then you don't need to.

    I agree with Beefy. But are you also sure that it is a VIA mobo and not just a VIA chipset in your rig?

    This is what SIS says it is Manufacture-VIA Technologies Inc
    System Bios- 10/22/2001 P4x266-8233-6A6CW00BC00(Award)
    Chip set-P4x266/A
    Model-P4x266-8233
    And SIS say's i should update my BIOS because SIS can't read some of the info like how much memory i have. Not that i am really kean on doing an upgrade but i thought i would look it up just in case i needed to do one.Just to answer your question if its a VIA motherboard I wen't on via's web site found my board
    P4x266 VL33-S

    Man, I hate to pass you onto another forum, but you should really check out a placed called Motherboards.org. These guys are all over mobo's, BIOS and similar feats. If you can't find your answer there, then there probably isn't one to be found.

    Good luck!
