Sorry for the bad news, but there are no universal BIOSes for chipsets. I would say look for an app that does it but I'm 99% sure that 845 series of chipsets would not sopport them.

Simplest one is swap out your board with an Abit or Asus. You could use any of the boards based on any of the 845 chipset, or better still use a board based on the 865 ir 875 chipset. They allow for more OCing and upgradablity.

By the looks of your system it uses a standard ATX MB.

Not trying to sound mean or nothing but in your computer manual it should say what button you should push to enter BIOS on your computer. Ex: I have an hp and all I do is push F1 at the HP invent sign. You should buy a new motherboard if you enter BIOS and it won't let you change the setting on the cpu or anything. Mine won't let me do it either. I'd say buy a new MB.

I can get into my bios easy but I cant OC it because its a stock compaq setup that wont let me change things. No worries though, I have a micro ATX on the way that should do everything I need it to.
