How do I upgrade my BIOs?
buy another MB or get it flashed with another firmware
I am using DX58SO. any new mobo
that website helped a lot. thanks.
Y u want to UPDATE the BIOS ?? any big problem or any glitches ??
If u r using any other brand Mobo like EVga, Gigabyte , asus the Bios can be updated without any fear , BUT
Intel is very strict in RMA now a days , also they dont even RMA any bios failure on the update , most of the brand wont RMA on bios update failure sometimes some brands do it !!
Flasing ur BIOS if u most important & if u dont have any option to solve then u can proceed make sure all the programs are shutdown antivirus too & U have UPS !!
Unless there's something wrong with your current BIOS that can be solved with a newer version, flashing a BIOS just because there's a newer version is not advisable.
It's like overclocking your CPU from 3.0 GHz to 3.01 GHz. You won't notice any difference. And flashing a BIOS carries more risk than mild overclocking. If somethng goes wrong, your motherboard may become unuseable.
I just flashed my bios for 10 times with in 1 month cause there are lot of problem with the Phenom 2 proccies so i did it - but make sure if u have correct Bios for Correct mobo - MAIN THING IS UPS !!
I actually want to upgrade my previous PC's BIOS. that one is 9 yrs. old.
