Hi guys ... i want to update me computer bios but i cannot find an update anywhere .. not even on manufacturers site

I hope that i will be able to get a bios update here... :?

Well yeah i have this Mobo.. quite old .. it comes from a packard bell unit AND i am running windows 7 on it.

Manufacturer: ECS
Mobo: RC415ST-PM

Bios chipset onboard: 686 AMIBIOS 1999 UK95 8518

when i start the pc, this bios info shows at the bottom of the screen: 63-0100-000001-00101111-121106-RS400-RC415ST-PM-Y2KC

now i had a look in wim's bios archives but could not find anything matching with my bios. i also have 2 attached files that might help someone to figure out this bios of mine.

That is a board made by ECS for Packard Bell which PB refers to as RIO 3, the bios you have now is the last ever released for it:
ftp://ftp.packardbell.com/pub/itemnr/6997800000/

There are no upgrades.

Do not assume anything

Really really great and quick work ....

Judging by the time Since you were a member .. You must know a lot about bioses.

well in first place i did not even had a copy of this current version, thanks for that

just 1 last thing ... do you know anything about modifying a bios rom file, to enable/unhide the overclocking option in bios ?

As i wont get an update of my bios ... this seems to b the only option ahead.

Thanks a lot
