    You should be able to check 'em out at http://www.asus.com

    Click under support and download, select your motherboard model and click on BIOS. : ) Hope this helps ..

    After finding my model and going to BIOS, then do I go to motherboard as the next option. If so it asks about various slots and utilities. How do I determine which slot #. I ran Belarc Advisor to get a read out of my system specs but couldn't find slot information. I was hoping there was an update utility that can read my system and determine what I specificly need so I don't download the wrong update. This stuff is new to me..

    What sort of processor are you running on?

    Basically Socket 370 is for P3 / Celeron, Socket 478 is for P4. Socket A is for Athlon .. ??

    Either these few ..

    I replaced my Celeron with a Pentium 3.
