    1 Do not flash the bios unless you really have too. In order to flash your bios go to your mobo manufacturers website, and download the bios upgrade and flashing utilities, and read the instructions very carefully.

    2 You can get these from almost any computer shop.

    3 Most mobo`s use a 20 pin connector.

    Regards Howard :)
