Ok the dilemma I suppose?

Well I am trying to find a bios update for a Packard Bell motherboard. Unfortunately, this particular board was made by intel for PB. I know the current bios version but can't find any updates because intel doesn't support this board. They tell me to go to PB. Well since Packard Bell is a freaking idiotic company they don't have any updates that I can find anywhere, (aside from being banned in the US). Any help would be appreciated. Here is my current bios version.

4MUE0X1.11a.003.p03

Thanks again.

Flash your BIOS at your own risk.

If you know the name of the mobo, some of the PB systems listed under http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/pb/mb/pbmb.htm have BIOS for download. May not be yours, but maybe.

MU440EX is Intel, nicknamed Maui. Guess what, Packard Bell has a Maui too. The PB 880/885 board
