Does anybody know ehere to get an update file for the following BIOS?

The string that was shown on the screen at bootup said:

08/21/96-UMC-881/886A-2A4X5J6HC-00

and on the AWARD BIOS chip was said:

S/N: 032193412

Also, such string appeared on the screen at bootup:

JT486UP4

From this webpage I found out, that the chipset was UMC8886BF and the motherboard manufacturer, which wasn't mentioned on the motherboard itself, was Jossi, a nonexistent firm anymore. The motherboard is quite old, but still i would need to run it. Presently the BIOS seems to have been damaged and is unable to perform a boot completely.

If anyone has a flash upgrade for this BIOS, could you PLEASE tell me?
:cry:

But does not anyone have a patch for it? And also, might it not be, that other MotherBoards have the same BIOS and I could use the patch from them?
