does anyone have BIOS ugrades for 6VIA96A (acorp). This model is not on their website, and I searched google and got very little.

BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PGN
BIOS Date: 04/06/00
BIOS ID: 04/06/2000-694X-686A-6A6LJF99C-00
OEM Sign-On: 6VIA96A FOR AGP/PCI/ISA/AMR MODE VER:1.1
Super I/0: VIA 686 rev 27 Found at port 7h
Chipset: VIA 82C691 rev 196
OS: Microsoft Windows XP Version: 5.1.2600 Service Pack 1

I have been having problems with seemingly random reboots....
In my event viewer I find ACPI errors.
" AMLI: ACPI BIOS is attempting to read from an illegal I0 port address(0xcfc), which lies in the 0xcf8 - 0xcff proteccted address range. this could lead to system instability. Please contact Vendor for technical assistance."

I did the automated report and XP told me to get a BIOS upgrade.

on a side not I found a flasher tagged for this board, but no bin file.
