    Hi Everyone,

    I was wondering I need to update my current bios to use my new hard
    drive. But the only company I found that offers it says I have to pay
    39.00-50.00 to get it. Does anyone know where I could get the file for
    alot cheap or for free?
    The file I needs is:
    Award Modualar Bios v6.00 PC W6167 msv1.6 083000


    Thanks for the help

    Hi Shera...

    I've never found a motherboard maker that doesn't offer
    bios upgrades free.

    I'd suspect that you might have an msi motherboard. If
    that's correct, then go to msicomputer.com and check their
    bios downloads page.

    If it isn't msi, then google the mainboard makers name until
    you find their site, and look around.

    Be very very very careful updating bios. Follow every
    instruction to the letter. Any error on your part will be
    catastrophic.

    You can download a program that allows you to do this without upgrading the
    BIOS. This must be a very old computer, yes?
