Old Gateway P5-120

I have an old P5-120 with a Pentium 120 MHz CPU, a Selectron motherboard (MBDSAC045AAWW), and an Intel Triton 430 FX chip set running under the AMI 1.00.03.CN0T Bios. I am trying to upgrade the
memory on this machine from 64 Meg to 128 Meg. But when I install the
new memory, 4x32 Meg 60ns EDO SIMMs (which I tested on my other computer), the system sees only 64 Meg and malfunctions. Gateway's on-line documentation ...

k7vta3 rev3.1 bios n/a

well, i bought a ecs k7vta3 rev3.1 mb, and it seems like it came with a non programmed bios. bios for this mainboard are not available on site (only for 3.0x versions). i've tried all 3.0x but none of it worked. i'm trying not to waste a lot of time sending the mainboard back to the store. so if any of you has a rev3.1 bios please send it to me.

I can't believe that there is no way to upgrade ...

SP-586TB death-melody ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Here's a toff one!

I had (RIP?) for several years a computer with an SP-586TB motherboard / AMDK6II-200 processor. A couple of weeks ago, I was working on that computer, and suddenly the computer started to play a tune trough the MB speaker. I was really shocked, experience said to me that it could be only a virus - but there's no "entry point" in the whole 8 computer network (all floppies have cables detached ...

Wim's BIOS is the internet premier source for finding (EFI) BIOS Upgrades. Started in 1996, the site hosts a lot of unique content on how to find the correct BIOS updates and general information about your PC's (EFI) BIOS.

To quickly get started try the online BIOS scan (spyware/adware free) which will scan your computer, get back with a BIOS report and propose an updated BIOS if available. Alternatively search for your bios update manually. You can also use the menu at the top to navigate through the site!
