Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

BIOS Upgrade I have a Mesh PC fitted with an ASUS ATX Micro NForce 4 939 PCI motherboard. I have just replaced my AMD Athlon 3500 chip with an AMD Athlon X2 4200, which runs fine. However I have heard that one can get a BIOS update that will make the most of the new chip. Is this correct and if so, where can I get it and what is it called?


Answers :

Please read the following statement from ASUS:

\015\012All BIOS posted at ASUS Website is for products sold and packaged by ASUS.

Updating the BIOS only if you have problems and you are sure that the new BIOS revision will solve your problems.
Careless updating may result to more problems with the motherboard!
