Why do you want to update the BIOS?

And if you need to, you do it exactly by the manufacturers instructions. No deviations.

Agree with USAFRet. BIOS is one of those things: If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

My computer is locking up every 15-20 minutes. This recent update I thought might fix it. More info on the (Locking-up) here: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-2049305/frequent...

Info in that thread does not lead me to think a BIOS update is the solution.

Why is it locking up?

I wish I knew! I'm trying to fix the problem, and if the BIOS is not the problem I won't bother updating it.

Also has it been locking up ever since you built the system? Your processor is supported by the earliest version of BIOS installed on your motherboard. An issue like this, affecting the earliest version of processors supported by this board would have been resolved before it was released to the public.

No, the system was built around 9 months ago, and the locking up began only a couple days ago.

Then that is almost certainly not a BIOS issue. It was working, now it is not.
Something else is the cause.

Alright, I will take it in and see if an expert can find the problem. Thanks for the help!
