its not "bio's", its "bios" and its what stores all the information that boots up your computer

i.e- voltages, hd boot up, pci slots, agp/pci-ex slots, etc.

I checked my bios once and under video card options. there was 64MB and 256MB, i had a 64 long time ago and i got a 256 now, but the 64MB was always highlighted. i changed the option to 256MB and i dont see a difference. What did i just change? Does it improve anything?

It should you probably see no difference because you will only notice a big diffence in games and sometimes you have to change the vid card settings in windows too.
