Personally, if working I leave well alone!

Upgrading BIOS is extremely unlikely to "improve" anything (e.g. performance). At best it might fix a few known problems - but if you aren't having problems, as onthelimit1 says, leave well alone.

If it goes wrong you have a door stop instead of a PC

Leave well alone!

What the guys said. Unless you're having problems that you believe a BIOS upgrade will solve, or unless there is functionality in the BIOS upgrade you need - don't touch it! There is no value at all in upgrading it just for the sake of it.

thanks to you both, my thoughts exactly "if it don't itch don't scratch it" but I thought I would ask anyway. regards
