well, the problem may be solved. I just spoke with the computer guy at my workplace (the original source of this computer). He gave me a 3 GB Drive to try instead of the 30. If this works, then I won't need the bios upgrade.

my fingers are crossed

He might actually prefer a MRBIOS BIOS... then. http://www.knowplace.org/bios.html MR_FIC_.ZIP... both releases are there (just the different I/O). Supposing this works, how does a "shareware" bios work? If I upgrade and don't pay the shareware fees on time, will my CPU Explode? Or will my computer...

Where is the I/O chip on the motherboard? Is it something that is usually clearly labeled? (I just don't want to get home, open the box and stare at it like an idiot for an hour looking for the right chip.)

Thanks,

Check if the board has flash write protection jumper - that might be the problem.
How can I tell?

Which I/O do I use?

Neither of those worked either. I am starting to wonder if there's something wrong with my motherboard. My computer will recognize an 8 gb hd, but as I was installing Linux, I became curious because the installer's automatic partition scheme had a 22 gb partition listed. I then looked at the hard dr...

Use AMIFLASH 6.34
It's lots stabler and more reliable
AMIFlash 6.34 didn't work because it is for AMI BIOS. I have an Award BIOS.

Can you recommend another?

It is a PT-2003. I cracked open the box when I got home from work and looked at it. There is a bar code sticker with PT-2003 written on it. I also contacted FIC Tech Sup. They told me the correct bios to download, which introduces my next problem. When I was satisfied that I had the correct bios upd...

FIC? bios update

BIOS VERSION: 3.02E703

RELEASE DATE: 10/21/95

AMI BIOS id: 2A59CF0JC-00

I can't find the appropriate update/info at fic's website. F0 is supposed to represent FIC, but I can find no reference to a model represented by the J.

Thanks,

Russell
