If you picked up the patched BIOS from Denniss's link, you need make sure that the diskette is DOS bootable and has no extra drivers/memory managers etc - no EMM or himem - and an Award flasher. You may actually need to look for an older version of awdflash.

Check to see what is printed on the motherboard.
As regards whether a BIOS upgrade will make it run better - have they done this? Maybe they could send you the later BIOS. If not, they're probably just guessing and it may not be worth the risk.

The limit on a patched 4.51 BIOS should be 128GiB=137GB. 32GiB and 64GiB bugs should be patched, but there are many variations of the code and sometimes the automatic patcher doesn't pick up one of the instances (e.g. size display in CMOS setup). This could mean you have to unplug the drive to use C...

Theis does NOT look right; ECS 651-M PCB version 1.0:
03/18/2004-SiS-650GX-6A6IXE19C-00
651-M Ver1.0b 03/18/2004
but this may be worth considering; ECS 651-M PCB version 2.0:
05/13/2005-SiS-651-6A6IXE19C-00
651-M Ver2.0f 05/13/2005P
Can you check the board for codes & version nos?

Syntax P4 S651M = ECS/PC-Chips L4S5MG3 according to our previous research, but the BIOS for L4S5MG3 appears to be older than yours.
03/13/2003-SiS-651-6A6IXE19C-00
L4S5MG3 Ver1.0d 03/13/2003
What's the problem?

Re: point noted

It was just too good to be true I had to try it out, the thought of better thermal control did it for me, the chance to hold laptop without asbestos gloves...

OK, according to the manuals V3.1 has an 8-pin set of jumpers JP39, but V1.1 and V2 have only a 6-pin JP39. Also, the front panel connectors are different, see p6 of each manual - V3.1 has 6 blocks, not 5. (J42 is repeated at the edge of the board as well as being near JP37.) Manuals etc currently a...

Hi and welcome, nrd.

The best bet as regards versions is to find something printed on the mobo. Sometimes the writing is quite small. Can you take a look and see whether you can spot anything useful? Meanwhile I'll do some research based on what you've given us.
