    Hi, I would like to update my Phoenix Bios Version 4.06 Rev 1.05.115 to the lastest version. Anyone know the latest version and download link. Cheers.

    Also I'm looking to update my graphics card bios. The card is a Geforce 2 MX 400 64MB SD W/tv out. The version is, 3.11.01.30.00

    Can someone tell me were to get the latest version for this bios, I'm also looking for overclocking tools. I heard that some bioses require and unlocked version for GFX card. Is this true? Any information welcome.

    Later

    Mark.

    I would advise agains't updating your video cards bios, but there should be a bios update on the peoples site who made your board.

    Yer but it would be nice to keep my GFX card bios update for more features and more FPS p/s. Were is the phoenix web site, i just download a bios of there right. But maybe not, the computer was orginaly a siemens sceneic 300 but that just the whole computer parts, was wondering what I need to find out on mobo for mobo make.

    I think it's D1115 or something. But that's what it said on the manual.

    you won't get any boosted FPS or extra features from flashing your video cards bios, you can get support for more cpu's by flashing your mobo's bios buts thats about it.

    Hey mark,
    The latest version is v4.06 R1.07, dated 11.06.2002
    here
    All you had to do was look on their site...

    Don't know about the graphics card, i still see no benefit from updating it, you're asking for trouble IMO.

    Hiya thanks for the information. I've downloaded the utlility but I don't wan't to flash it incase I do anything wrong or incase you have provided me with the wrong version (looks right to me). Ace123 helped me out upgrading the bios for an old computer so I would like to speak to him for this computer. He hasn't been on MSN for a while, can someone get him speaking to me.
