How important is it to brought up to date? Larry More about : update bios Hawkeye22 a b V Motherboard July 28, 2011 6:48:57 PM Normally, you only want to update the bios if it fixes a known current issue you are having. Resetting the bios to default does not downgrade your bios, it only changes the settings back to default. m 0 l spinker July 29, 2011 4:07:48 AM Thank you for your reply.

The only time you should ever really update your BIOS is: A) If there is a major issue, with the update being a known solution B) If a major feature is implemented in the newer version or C) Well, there really isn't a C. Messing with your BIOS can be very tricky, even if you get the update straight from the manufacturer's website. To me, changing the BIOS is a last option kind of thing. m 0 l spinker July 29, 2011 4:48:12 AM Thank you for your prompt reply Larry m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
