Without knowing anything about your PC make and model, nor your reason for wanting an update, I'm afraid I can't help you further. We have a limited selection of BIOS updates available for specific models, which are listed in the relevant part of the Downloads section. Depending on your PC's make and model, you may find the original motherboard manufacturer has updates on their own website, but these are not supported by Advent, so if you were to try and install it and run into problems, you'd be on your own.

Hi Advent, I too would like to update my BIOS, my specs are;

Desktop PC Advent DT2313
Motherboard model: DT2
Processor: Intel Core i7 3770
CPU: 3.40GHz
Chipset: Intel 150 Rev. 9
BIOS Date: 27th June 2012

I recently cleared my CMOS and now windows backup cannot see my second internal hard drive, although windows explorer can.

I'm sorry, but there is no BIOS update available for the DT2313. Although it appears related to you clearing your CMOS, I doubt very much that the issue you're now having with Windows Backup is related to the BIOS at all, particularly as the drive itself is still visible in Windows Explorer.

It might help if you could post a new thread with your problem - as it's not relevant to this thread - under the title "Windows Backup cannot see my internal drive". Please include as much information as you can - are you creating a basic file backup, or a complete system image, for example? Are there any other drives attached to your system, etc? Was this hard drive shipped with your PC, or did you add it yourself? Has it previously worked correctly with Windows Backup, or is this your first attempt to back up to it?

i need a bios update for advent centurion ci 5231 motherboard foxconn p55a the board can take upto 16g but it will not allow me to put in any more than 4g could you help please

Apologies, we don't provide BIOS updates for the CI5231. You could try, but there's no guarantee it'll work and you would be updating the BIOS entirely at your own risk.

With regards to the problematic RAM upgrade, it's imperative you purchase compatible memory for the computer - in the CI 5231's case, it appears you need four matched 4GB sticks to achieve the full 16GB capacity.

Unfortunately I personally know very little about the CI 5231, so I can't offer any more specific advice on upgrading the RAM other than the above, sorry.

I can't find any information about Advent 7098? Where is the latest BIOS? I found one at the net, but bricked the computer. Can you give me some information about bios recovery procedure at this model?

Do you have any BIOS updates available for Advent Desktop QC6003 with Bios Version Intel Corp. IDG4511H.86A.0090.2008.0924.1800 24/09/2008.
Originally on Vista but now running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit. Having issues with black screens and I've updated literally everything else.
Intel site only lists updates for BIOS IDG4510H.....
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
