Tried updating using uefi update utility internet flash. It would say initializing internet connection after that download and update firmware version 1.30? I'd click yes then it would say internet connection error. Is something blocking the download because it seems like its getting a connection to the internet just can't download. My mobo is a asrock z77 pro3. This is my first time ever updating bios so I'd appreciate any help.
There you can learn how update bios from usb flash drive. Check the link How to update bios there. Updating bios from storage is safer.
But if you dont face any problam, then dont update the bios. It is a potential risk. It is best to leave the bios as it is if you dont face any problem.
I am having ploblems my computer keeps freezing. Most of the time it just freezes but a few times a screen popped up with hardware malfuntion system has halted or nmi: parity check/ memory parity error and once it just said parity error. I don't know much about computers I did try a few things. I ran prime95 for 5 hours no errors and I tested my ram with the windows memory test it said it was fine. It was freezing a lot during games so I just got a new card (needed to get a new one anyway) but that didn't work. My HDD makes noise at weird times I'll just be going from one web page to the next and it will start making noises. Maybe its just that model http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I found out that this type of hdd is made for a raid 0 setup or something could that be a problem?
