I'm great thanks and you

the item i was looking at wouldn't of worked with my pc but i saw it for 3 quid and was intrigued by what it could do - i'm trying to learn about motherboards and bios' ( how to flash them, updates and generally how they work ) this is not easy going but i'll get there

The terminology is a bit mad but then i've only been on here a few weeks

Any help on the above would be appreciated

Cheers
