    You will need to find the revision type


    There is only one revision type for H12V, and that is revison 1.02
    There are Two BIOS for H12Y (H12YT BIOS R1.04 Version and H12YT BIOS R1.08 Version)

    To find your revision number, look on your motherboard>motherboard window in everest, or take the side panel off of your computer and look for a revision number somewhere on the motherboard.

    Also, EverestUltimate is a retired/expired product. Change up to the new software, AIDA64.
    Code:

    Becareful that you double check this, as the motherboard maybe a Twinhead but i expect the bios has been provided by phillips, most prob just to include the phillips logo on startup. Have youlooked at the phillips support site regarding this?.

    (OP)
    theres no revison numbers shown in everest/aida64..in another useful program i used
    Code:
    http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html
    it came up with revision 3 for the north/south bridge ?? not sure if thats connected.
    i then took off the bottom of the lappy.three stickers at different places each starting with h12yt or h12y. not sure if this is any help as I'm lost with this:(
    would have liked a bios mod Rather that a loader.

    you could try and run a driver updater program, it may just find the bios update for you, look through the foum, i did see a post the other day about driver update software
