I have an idea of how to replace the cpu(hardware). Is there anything besides the bios update that i need to do. An answer would be much appreciated. THANK YOU More about : software rolli59 November 18, 2012 4:03:53 AM Just replacing CPU might not even need BIOS update so check on motherboards manufacturers website for what BIOS is needed.

One last thing, when replacing either the ram or video card is there any other major requirements(software) besides the drivers that are needed.
