mother board information

I have a HP Pavillion 7925 with Windows XP. Sisoft Sandra has told me that I should look for a BIOS update. How can I find the information I need about the motherboard and BIOS in order to search for it.

I am extremely reluctant to perform this operation until I am absolutely sure I am doing the right thing.

Any information about this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

My advice, for what it is worth, is do NOT flash the BIOS unless it is absolutely necessary. If things go wrong you could end up with a 'puter that won't boot.

On the Sandra main window in the Information Modules 'CPU & BIOS Information' this will tell you what BIOS you have (or just look on booting up the machine).

Unless you have a problem or an essential upgrade can not be done without a BIOS upgrade then I would ignore what Sandra says and leave well alone.

Thanks both of you for the advice. I'm even more frightened of the damn thing now.

I don't know whether it would help or not but the reason I am doing this is that my Internet connexion keeps cutting me off, sometimes after only a couple of minutes. I have another computer which connects through the same line, though not at the same time. This one works no bother. I have a dial up connexion.

I am really clutching at atraws as I haven't a clue what's wrong.
