Howdy folks.

I'll get right down to it. I've got an Emachines, AMD XP 2600+, 512 mb pc2100, FIC AM37 mobo, Via KM266 chipset.

I've been wanting to overclock this thing for a while, and got a BIOS upgrade from FIC. When I tried flashing the BIOS, I got this error message: "The program file's BIOS-Lock String does not match with your system".
ID string: 08/02/2003-KM266-8235-6A6L-VF0DC-00

What is going on? Can anyone point me in the right direction as to getting the "good" BIOS for this thing? I can't do jack with the current version.
