Reputable Web Sites

Specs: Windows XP, 3.2 GHz/ 2 GB
Is there a reputable web site that has BIOS updates for older PC's that does not "SCAM" you or place spyware or adware on your PC? I very well know the Mfg. web site should contain this information, however, for older PC's and no longer supported pc's, I need an update. I can even handle a "pay" site, as long as it does not scam, add spyware or viri to my PC.

Talking about Socket 7 boards? If so, I know most are eastern european sites that offer porn, a dandy virus or two, etc.

For boards like Slot 1 and later, the manufacturer website usually works for me.

I never flash a BIOS on old boards unless it's absolutely required and I'm sure I have the proper BIOS. It can take a lot of research to identify an old motherboard correctly.

Why not give us the info on the motherboard you're asking about...there's really no catch all site for BIOS updates.

I can't find it now but there was a project that made sort of a universal bios. Dunno how good it was/is.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I've never seen any Malware from this site, yes it's Pay to Play, or was. Unfortunately it is only for Phoenix, Award or American Megatrends(AMI) BIOS support. Enter at your own risk.

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.

Tell us what you hope to accomplish with a BIOS update and what brand/slot type board you have.
