I have an Intergraph TDZ-2000 with the following information:

BIOS Manufacturer : American Megatrends
BIOS ID : 61-841F-006350-00111111-071595-82440LX
BIOS Date : 07/15/95
BIOS OEM Signon :
BIOS ROM Size : 256K
Chipset : Intel 440EX/LX rev 3
Super I/O Chip : SMC 93x rev 1 found at port 370h

I cannot find the motherboard mfg #006350 so I can find a BIOS update. I have upgraded to W2K and recently added a new ATI FIRE GL2 video card. The graphics display degrades (some text/graphics become unreadable) and then the system will freeze - everything locks, mouse will not move, cannot reboot, etc.

Do you think a BIOS update will help?

I appreciate any replys to this post.

Please search for markings printed onto your Board .
Your freezing might be a power problem - many 440LX based boards have problems feeding 3d-graphics card with enough power .

Specially made for Intergraph.

probably not your bios that is the issue but the i440LX chipset used on your board...

Do not assume anything

Make sure you have the latest drivers for your card.
It might be the power problem - I remember that this problem was also on earlier Asus P2L97 boards - there was a linear voltage regulator which can't provide enough current for some cards. Asus provided a simple rework http://web.archive.org/web/200110050226 ... ework.html
