Trying to run Saints Row The Third, read a lot of people saying that AMD FX doesn't run well on it unless you use some weird program every time you run it, or update your BIOS. After reading about other games that are the same way, I decided with the 'fix all games' solution and update the BIOS. I downloaded the proper one but it says it can't be used on a 64 bit system? What am I doing wrong? Please be specific in telling me what to do, really don't want to brick my PC.
1. Download the bios from Gigabyte website and copy it to a freshly formatted (FAT32) flash drive
2. Reboot and at the boot screen press the END key to enter Q flash
3. Save your current bios and only then update with new one.
DO NOT STOP AT THE MIDDLE OF THE UPDATE PROCESS. MAKE SURE YOUR PC DOES NOT TURN OFF DURING THAT PROCESS.
It only takes some seconds.
