*Specs will follow message,

I'm having trouble determining if there is an update for my BIOS.

I have all info but between the BIOS and Motherboard, neither have been forthcoming with a download.

I assumed that one of these companies (PCChips and American Megatrends) would have something to help me determine if there is an updated BIOS and a download. I also assumed that it would be a self extracting and self installing operation?

I started this because my desktop requires the on/off button to be pressed twice in order for XP OS to start, and the 'restart' function doesn't work, 'turn off' fuction works, I'm hoping by updating all drivers and BIOS will fix. It evens happens when there is no harddrive installed, so I figure the cause is upfront and not in XP OS.

*Specs:
