I have an old 486 Hsing Tech VIP Mainboard. I need a bios upgrade but the Hsing Tech home page does not seem to have any bios links. I have tried their other name PCChips but no success.
The full ID of the board is 41-A300-001437-00101111-101094-21011/33-E.
I hope someone is able to point me in the right direction.
Thanks

Is it the PC Chips M918 board (with ALi chipset)? I have the M918 board - but it refused to boot with the original BIOS. So I've replaced the PROM chip with a flashable on and flashed GigaByte GA-5486AL BIOS into it. After some modifications, it works fine.

Thanks for reply. Yes it does have ALI chips. It is an Edge desktop system.
Looks like I may as well scavenge the parts to use on another unit as this one seems doomed if no bios update available.
Thanks again.
