    Seems you can't download a bios upgrade anymore unless you pay more
    than an old board is worth or am I missing something?

    flash the bios whenever I like, its like a virus checker update thingy,

    Award, used to be able to get them if you had the bios string.
    Manufacturers don't want to know about anything old.
    3 - 4 years old.. is old.

    I wasn't aware that any motherboard manufacturer charged for BIOS
    upgrades. I've always downloaded them for free.

    Take a look here: http://www.biosupgrades.com/
    Seems you can get a *late* bios upgrade for an old board, some time
    back tried it for my old PC chips board (super socket 7) I discarded
    their e-mail, and as I said before it cost probably more than the
    board is worth.
