    Hey guys, I've recently bought a 2nd hand laptop off ebay and I'm trying to update the
    Bios. I've run in to a problem in that I need to extract an image to burn onto a cd, but 7zip or winrar doesnt seem to support extracting it.

    any clues?

    It works for me using winrar 3.71 as well as the inbuilt winxp zip utility. I can also open the extracted iso using nero.

    Try redownloading the file.

    Are you sure it is a .zip (etc) file?
    Some of those BIOS images are a binary file

    Edit: Didn't see link in OP.
