    Default BIOS update for Packard Bell Legend 408 CD?

    I was able to replace the dead BIOS battery in this machine, but I can't set the date later than 1999.


    It there a BIOS update available? Possibly drivers as well?

    The current BIOS is version 1.00.04.BYOR

    Also looks like the Packard Bell FTP site is still up and running, but finding what you need might be a little bit of work.

    ftp://ftp.packardbell.com/pub/

    That Thread I posted has a Link to the "1007YBOR.zip" BIOS File, but I'm not sure if that is the one for your system, so be careful.

    Nope, I need whatever BIOS goes with a Packard Bell 810/820 motherboard. I have no idea what the file is because every link I found to said file is broken.

    The files on the pb ftp server seem to be classified by either product number or perhaps that's a motherboard part number. Either way, it's a puzzle.

    Big list of Packard Bell BIOS here, but I don't think yours is listed.

    That's the one, I hate this motherboard honestly but I'm stuck with it. It doesn't even have L2 cache...
