    YOU SHOULD BE VERY CAREFUL - MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD THE EXACT MOTHERBOARD BIOS UPDATE. THERE IS NO MARGIN FOR ERRORS OR YOU COULD FRY YOUR BOARD. BASICALLY DOWNLOAD THE UPDATE WHICH WILL PROBABLY BE AN EXTRACTION FILE. EXTRACT THE FILES TO A FOLDER WHERE YOU CAN FIND THEM EASILY. CUT OR COPY THE FILES AND PASTE TO A DOS FORMATTED FLOPPY DISK. MAKE SURE THE FILES COPIED PROPERLY. NOW DON'T TRY TO RUN THE UPDATE IN WINDOWS. BATCH FILES DON'T RUN IN WINDOWS. LOAD TO MS -DOS OR COMMAND PROMPT AND THEN TYPE A: TO RUN THE FLOPPY DRIVE- IT WILL LOAD THE FILES. THEN TYPE IN RUNME OR EQUIVALENT AND THE FILES SHOULD EXTRACT INDICATING WHITE FOR SUCCESFUL UPDATE. THEN YOU HAVE TO REBOOT YOUR COMPUTER. IF IT DOESNT BOOT OR POST FIRST TIME, YOU SHOULD TRY UNPLUGGING YOUR COMPUTER FROM THE MAINS, AND THEN RE CONNECTING CABLES AND REBOOT. IF THIS DOES NOT WORK TRY A CMOS DISCHARGE. LOOK IN YOUR MOTHERBOARD AND IT WILL SHOW YOU WHERE YOUR CMOS JUMPERS ARE. GENERALLY FOR NORMAL OPERATION JUMPERS ARE SET TO PINS 1 AND 2, BUT TO DISCHARGE CHANGE THE JUMPER TO 2 AND 3 SETTING. REMEMBER THAT THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO DO TO RESET THE CMOS DATA. ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU SWITCH THE CMOS JUMPERS BACK TO 1 AND 2 PINS FOR NORMAL OPERATION FOR YOUR MOTHERBOARD TO BOOT.
