updating BIOS

  sleepy01 18:23 18 May 2008

hi, not long put together new PC and have an ASUS 750i MoBo revision 0302, having checked the Asus site there are newer BIOS available for this MoBo and was wondering if updating BIOS is the same as drivers, ie: do you just get the latest and improved one or is there more to consider before updating it. Just being cautious, many thx.

Do you need to update the bios? If all is running fine or your don't want to upgrade you CPU then leave well alone.

Upgrading the BIOS can be dangerous if anything goes wrong during the process - it can render your computer useless and unrecoverable. As ICF says, if all is OK, then leave well alone unless you understand and accept the risks.

yeah all seems fine with it, thx for the words of warning i'll go with the 'if its not broken dont fix it' mentality :)
