Here's my bios info.

[BIOS Information]
Vendor String : Award Software, Inc.
Version String : ASUS P5A ACPI BIOS Revision 1007.A
Release Date : 07/16/99
ROM Size : 256 KB

[Motherboard Information]
Manufacturer : ASUSTeK Computer INC.
Product String : P5A
Version String : REV 1.XX
Serial Number : MB-1234567890

I have a amd k6 400 mhz computer running win xp but the bios version is very old and I've read and read on this forum and can't figure out which update to use.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you are already using the latest bios ever released and your board is running fine on XP. Leave the bios alone...

Probably the best advice. Or, if you're feeling brave, here's a BETA BIOS. Use at your own risk.

Flash your BIOS at your own risk.

The latest Beta Bios is known to be a very fine one without problems
Supports K6-2+ and K6-3+ as well as HDD up to 128GB
Cured some Power Management problems AFAIK
