What I'm currently working on is a basic FAQ/HOW-TO on flashing the BIOS of the PC. As this FAQ develops, it may or may not cover other aspects of the BIOS, such as settings and configuring it in detail. For now, it will be just an FAQ for flashing. What I would like to know for others is what questions they have about this. To comprise the FAQ, I want to stick to format of question/answer responses. I've compiled a list of typical questions that I am currently working on answers to: How do I flash a BIOS? Why should I update my system BIOS? How do I clear the CMOS? How do I get a replacement BIOS chip? How do I save my BIOS settings so I can restore them later? How can I fix my BIOS chip after a bad upgrade? Why can't I access my BIOS? I press Delete and nothing happens? How do I tell what version of BIOS is currently installed on the motherboard? What does CAS Latency 2 and CAS Latency 3 mean? How do I disable ACPI? How do I clear the password? These are a few that I have compiled. If you have any that you would like to contribute to the FAQ please post them here or email them to if you prefer. Any contributions will be noted and if used, the contributor will be listed in the FAQ in a special thanks section for all those who participate.
