PC Chips should supply you with a BIOS upgrade via their site, not AMI since you have a customized by PC Chips bios.

Well thats the thing.
1. PC Chips have a bob website
2. Other programs say my motherboard is a ECS.

Thats the problem..

Sorry for insult, but this goes out to everyone:
If you're going to post here, I really think you should look for the answer, learning it more, than to ask for a direct answer here (sorry if insult).
I just googled "62-0913-001131-00101111-071595-SiS730S-M810LR", and wow does it tell you a lot.

why do you want to update your bios?

I don\'t play for fun, I play to win and winning is fun.

Well supposably my AGP slot can do 4x but at the moment it can only do 2x. I thought maybe updating the BIOS might change it. I just want a performance increase on my PC.

I have tried google tons of times but that doesn't make it tell me what kind of motherboard it is. There is two terms which i get for that code. PCChips and ECS. I cannot have two different motherboards. Therefore, i cannot be sure what it is...

If your board supports AGP 4x, then it shouldn't need a BIOS flash.

BIOS updates don't unlock things that aren't already there in your current BIOS.

Either it's a 2x AGP slot, which I believe requires like 3.3v video cards, the much older ones compared to 4x and 8x needing the 1.5v video cards.

The option has to currently be in your BIOS or your board does not support AGP 4x.

I can set the AGP speed in my BIOS so perhaps yours has the same options
