Hi Folks,
I have downloaded bios update for my motherboard in the form of a Zip file. Do I have to unzip the file first and then copy the files to a dos disc?

Thanks

it depends on the MOBO manufacturer

Have you the flash utility?

Do you know what you are doing?

If you do not know what you are really doing then don't do it as you could end up with a MOBO thats non-operational

Also, just wondered if when booting up to find out what bios version you have on your pc, is there any button configuration you can press to freeze this caption?

Thanks in advance,

Update- My query was, I was expecting to update the Bios. After booting the PC, I found the bios version was adequate for my new CPU so I want to say, thanks to everyone, many thanks.

PS, I know some day my turn will no doubt come to have to update the bios but not today !!
