Before i give you the bios update let me just tell you that bios updates are done on an extreme level of upgrade however if Bios update fails to get updated then it make the motherboard fail or it goes bad as hardware fails.I will not be responsible for any hardware damage due to hardware bios update.Bios update linkhttp://dl.dropbox.com/u/747181/Gateway%20FX6800%20Unlocked%20By%201234s282.zip
