  1. i put this up in another thread about my graphics card not peroformign at full power but noone is replying so ill post it here as it sort of a different topic. i have seen this metniond so many tiems about flashing the mobo. What is this? What does it do? how do you do it? i have built many computers and never remembered anything about this (unless i done it without knoing what it actually was) . And can you flash a graphics card? i have seen this mentioned before an i remember the card i have (thats not working, go here to see details http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic20020.html ) has 3 pins on it and a jumper. As i thought this gflashing might fix the card problem but i guess its an idea to know what it is and how to do it first lol

    Flashing refers to updating the BIOS or firmware.
    If you can actually find a newer BIOS for your card then it might fix something but you might as well end up with an unusable vid card.
