Updating bios

  badgermansix 11:56 05 Apr 2010

Having had a few blue screens it has been suggested that I should update the BIOS.
the motherboard is "EP-8K3A+".
I have looked on google but there are so many options that I don't know where to start.
Any advice please on how to do this, and where to get the update from?
And....would this be a free update or should I be prepared to pay for this (if I can Get it).

A BIOS update should be considered as a last resort.
A failure could result in a scrap motherboard (been there done that).

Blue screening is usually op system errors, corrupt hard drive or memory problems.

It's better to leave the bios leave.

It's is a free update updating bios doing it wrongly can make your PC don't startup

The manufacturer of the motherboard is EPOX.

Blue screens are caused by the Operating System.
