Where or where to find for sure..?????

Feb 24, 2004
  1. Hello All.....

    Newbie here asking a newbie question.

    I bought my system (specs below) in 2000 and have never updated my mobo, bios, hard drive etc. etc etc

    Ive been upgrading my system best as i can, and sure would like to update my board, and chipset and whatever else I can.
    I just installed a ge fx 5700ultra and have the new 5304 drivers and have done the same with my audio.

    I goto intel to look at updating my board ( & chipset..?), and I cant seem to find the exact one I need and am afraid to start messing with the mobo, if Im not sure.

    Is there a way to update the mobo and bios at the same time..??? Pretty good at understanding the language of computers, but the d/l'ing at intel scares me.

    thanks for all your help....

    Here is where you find all stuff for your mobo:

    Please note that your mobo is no longer supported by Intel.
    The above link shows all available drivers for that mobo, as you did not specify your OS.
    Unless you have any problems with your mobo, I would advise you not to bother updating the BIOS.
    As they say: if it ain't broken, don't try to fix it!
