Phoenix AwardBIOS

Hi all,

I'm looking for a BIOS update for my E-System laptop but don't think I should have to pay for it. Does any1 know where I can get hold of the latest Phoenix AwardBIOS update?

I know the latest is v6 and I want it! *stamps feet* LOL

Cheers

Pay for a bios update ...that's ludicrous. e-system charges its pc owners to fix e-systems mistakes or improve stability and usability?

Wish I could help, but you would know better than me where to get something for free.

Good Luck

Just a question? How does one know what version one has?

You can boot to it, or type system info in search and click on system information, it's in there.

Man, I have looked everywhere I can possible think of, and can't find this. I will keep looking though, and let you know if I do find it.

Orb, you gotta be kidding me. You have to PAY for a BIOS update?!?

I'm in shock. Revolt. Kill. Exceedingly foul language!

(And yes, 'Beginning', that appears to be your BIOS version)

I remember several years ago, I had a Phx Bios I wanted to upgrade, & every where I looked on the internet, they wanted to sell you a new chip with the bios already installed. So I was more careful when I picked my motherboards, that they would have Award Bios chips.

The bull$h1t icing on the cake is that if you go through the right channels (esupport.com) you get redirected to another site & have to pay nearly $40 for an update!!

You would have thought that it would be free considering I paid full price for my laptop

Thanks for the interest though guys & gals
