I intalled winXP pro on my computer and now it freezes up all the time. I found out the bios is incompatible with XP and needs to be upgraded only problem is I cant find the numbers that fit any of the boards the manufacture has listed. I must be looking at the wrong manufacture or wrong numbers . Please help, I am tempted to tie a rope to the computer and convert it into a boat anchor but then I wouldnt have a computer :( .
