    Normally you would go to your mobo manufacturers website and get the bios update from there.

    Why do you want to upgrade your bios? Unless there is a specific reason, you should leave it as it is.

    Regards Howard :)

    Don`t worry about what Everest says. If your system is running fine, leave well alone.

    As my sig says "If it aint broke don`t fix it!"
