I have an old gaming laptop here with unknown origins that I'm trying to clean up, with the original driver disks being lost to time. . It was custom made back in 2014 or so, it has no external MSI markings or Asus markings. I'm trying to update the BIOS installed which is the AMIBIOS version E1757IG6.719 dated 03/14/2014. However, the model of the motherboard is MS-1757 and there is no "System Manufacturer" recorded anywhere in the system.

Apparently updating the AMIBIOS is tough without know the original manufacturer. I've done as much digging as I can with this one, I've used the motherboard ID tool (MBIDWIN) from the American Megatrends website, I've checked the windows system information manually, I've used CPU-Z to get the info, and nowhere is the System Manufacturer listed, just the motherboard manufacturer.

I've half a mind to overwrite the current BIOS with MSIs but I don't want to ruin a fine computer. Anybody ever run into this problem? Would overwriting the BIOS with a different one brick the whole thing? Any tips from people who've dealt with this kind of thing before?
