Question: What is an EPA File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an EPA file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an EPA file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .EPA extension are known as Award Bios Logo image format files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the EPA extension, please let us know.

How to open a EPA file:

The best way to open an EPA file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the EPA file.

This file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the EPA file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

The .EPA file extension is used within Award - Phoenix - BIOS to display what is a typically the BORING Energy Star logo that appears somewhere on the screen during the boot process. This image can be customized to be whatever one desires within technological constraints.

It IS possible to have a 'full-screen' styled EPA logo, but if that is implemented the boot-up sequence messages will become obscured. If the particular BIOS allows full-screen-logo display during boot, then the EPA logo will not be displayed; the full-screen logo displays immediately after POST and during the prompt to enter BIOS setup.
