Bios Upgrade Help

By Kickass
Aug 7, 2006
  1. Hi guys,
    Here's the deal, my machine freezes regularyl for no real reason, no blue screen, doesn't matter, can be screensaver, or browsing, or just sitting. Occasionally with the send error report it takes me to microsoft and suggests a Bios Upgrade. I have not installed any new hardware in quite some time. The 3 things I believe it might be is the video card, GeForce 5200, overheating, or the Bios.
    so,,,the drivers seem good for the video, according to driveragent, i could tell you if it overheats, sooo, here's my Bios string, I cannot find an update for it:

    An AMIBIOS ID String Was Detected:
    - ---- ------ ------
    | | | |
    | | | Chipset/BIOS Info
    | | BIOS Build Date
    | Manufacturer ID
    BIOS ROM Information
    AMIBIOS ROM Size: 256 KB
    BIOS Build Date: Apr 02 2001

    That is an ECS Motherboard Model M935D with a SIS 650 Rev. 128 chipset. you need to go to the ECS website and the support\downloads section to see if there is a newer bios available for it.

    maybe this can help. Check the manual before you do anything.
