To Flash

  OPEN18 18:39 01 May 2004

Someone was talking about flashing their computer to obtain the optimal settings.

What is this? Is it beneficial (I have heard some horror stories). Where can I go to get it done?

There is rarely any need to flash the BIOS and judging by some recent threads, it would not be a terribly good idea. The gains in performance are nil for most software applications and the risks of knackering your CPU are great.

If you do not know *exactly* what you are doing this is a good way of ending up with a 'puter that will not boot.

As GANDALF <|:-)> indicates, there have been many tales of woe on this forum (alone).
