I want to update my BIOS and the ASUS website says its needs to know my
motherboard model number. I pressed F2 during startup as it suggested, but
it did not list any BIOS numbers as suggested by the site.

How do I determine my motherboard model? I have a Sony PCV RX752 running
Windows XP for Home. It is a P4, and the system summary lists the system
BIOS Version as ASUS 42302e31. I read in setup that my BIOS is Award1003, so
I am confused as to what model/make my motherboard is. Thanks.

I finally opened the chassis and found this model on the motherboard:
P4S266-VX. When I typed this model number into ASUS website to obtain BIOS
update, it said it was not found. Ready to tear out my hair!

Try using ASUS Update software from here:
http://www.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/flash/Asusupdt52801.zip

This program automatically knows what motherboard you have and knows if
there is a BIOS update available and will update the BIOS for you from
within XP ;)

Don't worry too much about that because the software program I noted in
my other link should take care of it.

WOW, what a great response. The website had an agent that detected my
motherboard, like Nathan's suggestion for the Asus site. It IS an Award
motherboard! Now I just need to figure out how to update it. Thanks very
much!

You have to go to Sony. There is an abundance of OEM hardware
in the market place.

You are posting nonsense. He has an OEM board which
is supported by Sony.

Probably a she since it is PNW *girl* and either way, I missed the part
about it being a Sony machine. Also, I kind of wonder what the software
would have said because it is an ASUS board even though it may not be
listed on their site.

I've tried most of these w/o luck, but will explore them again. Thanks for
your help. BTW I emailed Sony explaining I had been to the site and asking
for help, but just got a canned reply back telling me to check their website.
Been there, done that! And they say Sony has sorry support....

If you dont know what a zip file is, do you really think you should try
flashing a bios?
If it goes wrong yr sys may be unuseable!

Only it is a software program that flashes from within XP and pretty
much can't be messed up. Also, she needs to use the Install.exe file
contained in the zip file to install the software which I think she may
have figured out.

I am not sure if this board is supported by the software or not, but at
the time of originally posting, I missed the Sony part of the message
and thought perhaps it was either unlisted or a regional board.

Typical smart-butt answer, friend! Of course I know what a zip file is. The
responder merely said he was sending me a link to a website and instead the
link downloaded some zipped files I just needed to know why before I
unzipped them - with the viruses going on these days, I don't think that is
inappropriate or ignorant. It amazes me how many people would rather
criticize than actually be of help. Back off, partner!

Thank you for the clarification. I was worried about opening the file.

expect him to read a post and actually post an educated reply! I mean, come

The response was as a result of reading all yr posts.
PS I agree Sony support is non existant, their usual answer is to use the
Sony recovery cd.

DL, I am not sure what this means either, but it sounds like a slight dig.
Isn't this a HELP forum??? If I was an expert, I'd be GIVING advice rather
than asking for it. I've been working with computers for over 25 years,
starting from the outside in. Haven't learned it all yet, but I do my
darnedest! If I get the terminology wrong or get headed in the wrong
direction, don't shoot me buck-o. I was THERE when zipped/compressed files
were the newest rage those many years ago. (Guess I'm really a Pacific
Northwest Woman rather than a PNW girl.) Can you say 24-inch removable
back-up disk, COBALT, or command-driven software? How about UNIX, INFORMIX,
DOS, BASIC???

A more helpful response would be to let me know what you mean to FLASH a
BIOS, and to maybe suggest I don't or do need to update my BIOS to install a
USB 2.0 card, or to let me know how exactly to enable my BIOS for 2.0, get my
drift?

Thanks for stopping by my post. If you ever need my help, please let me
know. I am a killer end-user, among other things.

Thank you for the clarification. I was being tounge-in-cheek with my replies
and hope it did not come across offensively as it was not meant to be. I
appreciate your taking the time to help me with this. Have a great weekend
when it finally gets here.

BTW there is a body of opinion, often expressed in ng's, that a bios
should'nt be updated unless to cure a specific problem or get extra
functionality.

Thank you and everyone else who tried to help me with this problem. I think
I was trying to crack a nut by hitting it with a sledgehammer. Take care!

If you have not got any answers among the several responses, get the
free Everest Home edition from
http://www.lavalys.com/index.php?page=product&view=1
which is an excellent general System Info tool, and its Motherboard -
Motherboard will give you make and model; while Motherboard - BIOS will
tell you detail of the present BIOS. And *much* more
