Im new to PCs and since my motherboard is three years old is it a good idea
to upgrade? I contacted the maker of my motherboard and they say an upgrade
is available and sent it to me for { DON'T CRACKUP} $49.00. I already read
that you can really mess up your PC if you do one thing wrong when upgrading.
Am I a fool for buying the upgrade? Please let me know as I can send the
Floppy discs back. Thanks all for your help.JJ

JJ,

Why are they charging money? What company is this? Don't they have a website where you can download the BIOS update?

Yes, you do have to be careful when doing a BIOS update. Make certain you study the manufacturer's instructions.

If the pc functions ok and an upgrade doesnt offer greater functionality,
theres no need to upgrade anything.
PS never heard of a manu.that charges for software/driver updates
Who is this manu?
