Updating your BIOS ================== WARNNG: If you do not need to update your BIOS for a specific reason it is strongly recommended that you do not do so. Updating your BIOS may render your motherboard unusable (And you warranty will be void). Although it is usually possible To fix after a bad flash knowledge and confidence with computer hardware is required. To update your BIOS follow the instructions below: Extract the NF24ALH - B14.exe file to a blank floppy disk. Reboot the PC with the floppy disk left in the floppy drive. When the DOS prompt appears type the following: awdflash NF24ALH.B14 /sy Press the enter key and a window should appear. NF24ALH.B14 should be displayed in one box and a flashing "Loading Please Wait" should be visible at the bottom. When the program finishes loading the update file it will ask you for a filename in the second box. This is the filename the backup will be stored under. Enter NF24ALH.XXX (Replacing the XXX with the current BIOS Version [EG. B10]) and press Enter. The backup of your current BIOS will begin and when complete you will be asked to press Y to start or N to abort the update. Press Y to start. DO NOT SWITCH THE COMPUTER OFF OR RESTART IT AS IT WILL RUIN YOUR MOTHERBOARD!! When the update is complete you will be asked to remove the disk before pressing F1. Remove the disk from the floppy drive then press the F1 key. Your computer should restart and boot to windows normally. Some BIOS settings may need to be adjusted depending on your configuration. Consult your Motherboard manual for information on how to adjust the relevant settings. Important Note: If your computer will not boot after the update you must follow these instructions to clear the CMOS and edit your BIOS settings: Switch off and unplug your computer Open the side of your computer case and locate the "Clear CMOS Jumper" (Itís the three pin jumper just below the chip to the right of the PCI slots) Move the jumper across so that it covers pins 2 and 3 (Middle and right) and leave for 15 seconds. Move the jumper back to cover pins 1 and 2 (Left and middle) Reconnect your power plug and switch the computer back on. As soon as you can see the startup message press the Delete key to enter the BIOS settings menu Adjust the BIOS settings for your configuration. The main settings that cause problems at bootup are: Enable USB Keyboard support Enable USB Mouse support Start using AGP graphics (If you have an AGP graphics card) Enable 3 1/2 inch 1.44 floppy drive A Other settings will need to be adjusted depending on what else is in your system. Hope this lot helps, Rebels Advocate. When you update the BIOS to a new version, your current BIOS settings are overwritten. This will occasionally cause your computer to fail to boot. If this problem occurs find the "Clear CMOS" guide in your motherboard manual and clear the CMOS memory. On first boot after clearing the CMOS open the BIOS menu and change the settings applicable and save them.Download Driver Pack
