After the conversion you need to upfate again with . CAP file.

the last thing he clicked on at 1:50 was the 2105.CAP so that's the newly converted CAP file. Were you able to get your BIOS updated with a CAP file?

well im going to try it today. so iv downloaded the new,est bios and i have downloaded the cap converter so it run the converter first then i click on the new bios file and install it ? does it convert the bios that is not installed ??

ok so iv just been i the bios and the flash tool but mine does not look as neat as the video i have 4 drives in it and loads of folders to choose from iv made a new folder in disk E and unzipped the bios and cap converter. so now i should be able to fine it this time. again i getting worried about my pc this morning it just kept restarting every 2 seconds on start up about 6 times then i turned of the power and turned it back on and it turned on by it self and kept restarting so i held the CMOS clear button and its ok now but this is getting worrying.
