Upgrading Bios

  romaneagle 19:43 06 Mar 2006

Has anyone any experience of upgrading their BIOS, please?

My BIOS is Award Medallion v.6.0 and I have been on their site, but have been directed to another (it seems unrelated site) and I don't even know whether there is an upgrade available, yet they want to charge me $29.95.

I am a little baffled by this.

Any ideas, please?

Thanks in anticipation!

Thanks to all of you for your responses - I think you have given me the advice I need - leave it!


AsusTek Computer Inc.Kestrel rev 1.xx - 6 years

I am running a P3 533mhz.

I am shortly to upgrade to XP and thought I would check for upgrade to Bios - I am somewhat of a novice when it comes to this field.

The advice you have received is good advice, you shouldn't flash the bios unless you are trying to achieve/cure something specific. Having said that, I do also think that there is a bit too much made of the risks and if you follow the procedure properly and back up the bios before flashing there is not too much to worry about. Only my opinion so probably wise to stick with the majority!!
