Hello all.

I am upgrading my BIOS on my PC-Chips (yeah i know) mobo. The upgrade proggie is AMINF331 and the newer BIOS is 0204155. The paths are as follows:

C:\aminf331\AMINF331.EXE
C:\aminf331\0204155.rom

I am using windows XP. The problem is when im at the command line and type 'C:\aminf331\AMINF331.EXE', it runs for a second then says 'Chipset/Flash part not available. This function will be invalid.'

What am i doing wrong ? I have searched around for a different upgrade program, but cant find one. The link from this site is down. Is it because im in XP?

Any help would be appreciated.

Read our FAQ (main site) regarding flashing procedures, and under which OS these are possible.

I might buy this one. I know for a fact now it WORKS. Was able to lead back many problems on two different machines to bad RAM. Saved a lot of time :)
