I'm trying to find a BIOS update for a motherboard on an old computer I've recently acquired as the Blue Screen of Death keeps coming up and I'd like to try updating the BIOS to see if it will solve any problems. I've determined the following information, but can anyone figure out what is the motherboard?

For Cpu-Z information go here

BIOS ID: 11/02/2001-i845-6A69VJ19C
OEM Sign-On: V.I406 A02 11-02-2001
Chipset: Intel 1A30 rev 3
Superio: Winbond 627F/HF rev 3 found at port 2Eh
OS: Win98
CPU: Intel Pentium(R) 4 1300 Mhz MAX: 2400 Mhz
BIOS ROM In Socket: Yes
BIOS ROM Size: 256K
Memory Installed: 640 MB
Memory Maximum: 3072 MB
Memory Slot 01: 256 MB
Memory Slot 02: 256 MB

Thanks in advance. =)

before you flash the bios, post the BSOD error and ill see what i can do to help you out.
The last thing you want to do is flash the bios of a flakey board.
You might try ASTRA , it can run in dos and fits on a floppy.
Platform: DOS, MS Windows 95/98/ME. Version: 5.10 download

If you don't get a motherboard ID then it's possibly a generic OEM board (bought in batches), likely not find a bois update for it.

From the data shown, it should run any Windows platform.
If a fresh install of Win98 is having problems then likely bios settings wrong or hardware failure, suspects: bios settings, bad ram, underpowered PSU, bad IDE cable, PCI cards, bad board/CPU.

Run memtest86 to check the ram.

Sometimes Win98 has issues with more than 512Meg of ram so you might find it stabalizes after removing that 128 stick.

Check the BIOS settings (write them down) and try the Default/fail safe settings.
