as far as everything is working fine I see no reason to update the bios. Only exception would be if there is some new feature that you want or need.

If it ain't broken, don't fix it.

Most people only flash the Bois if they have a hardware issue such as a hdd not compatible, there are things that can go wrong like frying your chip set and stuff, so unless it is necessary leave as is. if you must, google around as there are a few websites that give you step by step guides so you don't mess up

These are the correct answers.

The only reason you should flash your bios is for a problem fix or added functionality.

Default Re: BIOS update

nope, that would be pure speculation.

you would need to troubleshoot each component to find the culprit.

What are your system specs?
