Ok this may sound a little simplistic to those of you who do this often, but...

I have a Dell PIII computer that I am trying to put in a 100Gb Hard Drive and it is not being recognized. I have done quite a bit on research and have come to the conclusion I need to update my BIOS. (who woulda thunk it eh?) My problem is I cannot find an update for my system I have been to the Dell page, but If it's there I'm blind. I have been to the Intel page, but again I don't see anything that is the same, close, but still different. (-2 at the end instead of -3)

I am looking for the upgrade for the following: (Using WCPUID)

Motherboard Information:

Manufacturer: Intel CORP
Product String: SE440BX-3 (*note is -2 and -3 the same? I can find -2)
Version String: AA722396

BIOS Information:

Vgendor String: Intel Corp.
Version String: 4S4EB2X0.10A.0017.P05
Release Date: 4/22/99
ROM Size: 512Kb

Any information would be helpful. Thanks :!: [/b]

That would be a Dimension XPS T series then.
