Default Updating Bios Firmware

Hi Guys,

I'm new to this forum, quite savvy with computers. But I like to be thorough with Bios updates. I would like to update my Bios firmware, considering my laptop is quite old. To hopefully give me more compatibility with different hardware and more settings to edit.

Attatched I have the system information which I pulled up from msinfo32. I know its on xp, but I believe the old software is still the best for performance.

I'm struggling to find the correct firmware for my bios, I also need help carrying out the upgrade, such as help making a bootable USB or Disc for the upgrade.

Thanks,
Ash

Information not included in the system information:
-Intel Core [R] Celeron[R] 420
-KBC Version : 1.08

Your laptop is most likely OEM and you need to get your bios update from that manufacture of your laptop. If you attempt a different bios, you'll brick it
