I have a Sharp Actius RD-20 laptop computer that is running into problems when installing Windows SP2. Basically after install I get the blue screen of death after I log in that says to contact manufacturer for updated bios driver and such. After reviewing Microsoft article 885626, I'm finding that I need to update my bios because some Intel Pentium 4 and Intel Celeron D processors based on the Prescott C-0 stepping are running into problems with Windows SP2.

Anyhow, Sharp say's they tested it...and it was fun. I installed it twice and no dice...had to go through a back door to do a system restore and now it's fine...bottom line...I need a updated bios driver for this computer and was wondering if there are any good sites to look at for this computer. So far Sharp has had zero updates for this computer which is frustrating.

Let me know if there is a computer guru out there that can help and I'll give you the specs on the system. Thanks all!!!
