  I ran aida32  which I think Sandi recommended a long time ago as a good 
program 
  and looked in the motherboard and bios sections. It had the address of the 
board 
  maker and the place to get a bios update. Aida32 is a program that gets all 
the 
  information on all the stuff in your computer.
