    im having trouble fixing this pc im working on, the bios is older than the hills, I am needing to have a CD start at startup, it gives an option F9 to choose booting order or soemthign like that.. only thing that works is F1 to start the system

    I ran CPU-Z and under mainboard, the MANUFARTURER is not present.. just GRAYED OUT,
    the model is p4m800ce-8237
    southbridge via vt8237
    lpcia ITE IT8705

    Phoenix Technologies LTD
    version - 6.00 PG
    date - 12/22/2005

    I have read there are updates up to at least 2008

    If anyone could PLEASE point me in the right direction of where to get the bios update I would highly appreciate it.. I tried to look on the phoenix tech website.. couldnt find anything..

    Open up the computer to find the motherboard make and model

    Should be Asus judging from the model name.

    No, p4m800ce is the chipset model. It's a VIA chipset.

    tre2010, you have to open up the chassis. Usually, the motherboard will have a brand and a model printed on it. You need that information to find the appropriate BIOS upgrade.
