I've extracted both the flash and correct BIOS to a floppy.Running on windows XP, I go to the command promt and proceed to flsh the BIOS and I get this error window that reads "Flash.exe is not a valid Win32 application."
And then that's it.Could anyone help me here?

Cheers
Goli

Everything is OK. You are trying to flash card from XP OS. No way Pedro:),flash program works in DOS mode.
Make start up diskette from win 98 or ME and start computer from diskette. Flash program works ONLY in pure DOS. Type flash and then name of the bios file. 15.06 SG is BIOS for V3 2000 with SGRAM memory moduls. I have exactly the same BIOS on my card (mentioned above).
ADVICE 2: run flash program and bios file from hard disk it is more safe and faster.
Good luck.

As I know there is no newer BIOS. What's wrong with this one? If everything works fine and stable don't touch it. Please describe me your card (number of memory modules,heatsink,is it PCI?) or attach photo of the card if you have one. I have V3 2000 PCI SGRAM and didn't find anybody who has exactly the same card.

You have now.
There isn't anything wrong with the BIOS, it's just old and I was wondering if there was a newer one.
