    Smile VIA Mini-itx M10000 Bios Upragde

    Very new to pc's let alone carpc's being a Mac user for the last ten years, so apologies if this is a little obvious.

    I have a Epia Via M100000 motherboard that I wouild like to upgrade the bios. Main reason: So that I can get a better refresh rate for my xenarch screen. I only get 60mhz at the moment.

    1. How do I upgrade the Bios?
    2. Any one know which Bios is reliable. 'I have heard of a few problems people having after upgrading. Version numbers would be great.

    I have been to via's website but any further insight would be a great from actual users. Thanks.

    Via M10000, Xenarc 7" LCD, Centrafuse, Destinator3, PhoneControl.

    If you are new to PCs flashing the BIOS is one of the last things I would attempt.

    Be sure to do it right otherwise you will cause the motherboard to be in-operable.

    if you search on the forums here there is a walk through somewhere but be completely sure you have everything right before flashing .... as it could have disastrous results.

    Thanks for the warning UK MP3Car,

    but quite keen to get the screen refresh up to 70hz.

    After a little searching I have found the following links.
    How to upgrade your Via Bios:

    and this link explains how to recover from a bad bios flash.

    My question now is...
    Has anyone updated using this bios: 1.16 (10/14/2004) for the Via M10000 motherboard. Was it sucessfull? any problems after?

    Thanks Hafster.

    I'm running 75hz 800X600 with just the basic S3 drivers on my M10000. Didn't have to upgrade the BIOS to do it.
