Not sure which private message you're referring to, but my last few PM's had nothing to do with the BIOS as there were other questions some users had.

Now as to the BIOS,

First off make sure your system is clean, you can run MalwareByte's Anti-Malware, then SpyBot-Search & Destroy 1.6.2 (without the tea timer). Both of these programs should clear out most any parasites you MIGHT have on your system.

- Updating BIOS

The most important thing is to login to windows using an Administrator account and to disable UAC (user account control).

After that, temporarily disable your Anti-Virus and any other resident protection programs.

The Bios Zip file - make sure all the files are extracted to the same directory such as C:\BIOS or some such.

Close any programs which may be running.

Start > Run

Browse to the folder where you extracted the files from the BIOS zip file and select Flash.bat

- NOTE: If you can't see the file extensions, then you need to do this:

Control Panel > Folder Options > View tab > Scroll down to Hidden files and folders

- Select "Show hidden files and folders"

- The next two items should be selected also.

You should be able to see the file extensions now.


Click OK and the BIOS should update successfully.

The UAC is what causes most of the problems with the BIOS update. But other programs can interfere too.


Once you have successfully updated the BIOS, then you can re-enable the UAC and you should be all set.
