BIOS updates are supplied by the motherboard manufacturer via the support > downloads pages on their website. For Uniwill motherboards, go here:

✔ Best Answer
If it's working OK, why do you need a BIOS update? Have you ever flashed a BIOS before? If you do it incorrectly, you'll be shopping for a new motherboard.

"bios agent"

I suggest you get that crapware off your system, & if you're also running a "driver agent" or "driver finder", get rid of that as well. They're all garbage. And it's generally best to flash a BIOS thru DOS using a floppy disk, you'll run a higher risk of bricking the board if you perform the flash from within Windows.

Those are both mobile CPUs. Is this a laptop board you're working with? The fact that the system is running with the new CPU means that a BIOS update probably isn't required. It would help to know the model number of the board. Does it support the higher 667MHz FSB used by the T2300? If not, it's probably running at 1.33GHz instead of 1.66GHz but that shouldn't have anything to do with the system hanging. You should list all the specs so we have a better idea of what you're working with. All I can tell from the CPUs you mentioned is that it's old stuff, so it's not worth much & not worth throwing much money at.

Are you sure you mounted the heatsink on the CPU correctly? And used the correct amount of thermal paste, applied properly? Have you monitored the temps to make sure it's not overheating? Or tested the RAM with memtest86? How much do you have? Microsoft claims 512MB is the minimum for Vista Basic but I think the amount is understated. You should really have 1GB or more for decent performance.
