Bios Update on a Soyo Motherboard?
Question: I have a Soyo P4x400 Dragon Lite motherboard and I need to update the bios. I can find nothing but pay sites that claim to have the update, but you won't find out if it's really true until after they are paid. Please DO NOT TELL ME TO GO TO THE MANUFACTURER'S WEBSITE! Soyo went out of business last year. I'm planning on getting a new computer next year, if I can afford it. But for now I would just like to see if a bios update will fix a few problems. So does anyone know where I can get an update? What is wrong with my computer is my problem. I just want a source for the bios update. Every time I find someplace that claims to have it either leads to a pay-site or a nonexistent soyo site. Anyone reading this, don't bother with driverguide.com, it is just another pay site.

go to driverguide.com and sign up it's free and you will be able to find just about any old or discontinued driver ever made. I have used it and it really helped out a few times for me. The drivers have been uploaded by people. It's kind of like a p2p site in a way or a torrent site. But it works . Just click the loin tab at the top of page. http://www.driverguide.com/ Good luck
Go to www.Asus.com. Choose the region and click the download tab on the top of the page. Then locate the download link. You should come to page with drop down menus that asks you to choose the product, its series, and model. Choose all the appropriate selections, in this case motherboards, and it will direct you to a page that list driver and bios updates.
Spit out the problems you are having! If the PC has been running with no problems for some time, it's highly doubtfull a bios update is going to solve them. Secondly, a bios update IS a last resort. One glitch and you can kiss the mobo goodbye!
The rules of BIOS flashing: -Do it rarely (a 'when all else fails' solution, too many flashes can corrupt it). -Do it safely (make sure the flash wont go interrupted). -Do it with a BIOS made for your desktop (so don't flash your dv2000 with dv2500 profiles). -Most importantly, never, EVER do it in a OS environment (software can interfere with the flash, Windows could crash, all sorts of things can go wrong here).
