Step 5

Restart your computer. If you followed my instructions, in the left hand corner of the POSTing screen you will see the new BIOS version number. Enter the BIOS again by hitting the Delete or F2 key, and choose "set BIOS to default settings". Restart the system and go back into the BIOS, then you can adjust your BIOS to whatever your settings were before or choose new settings. Restart your computer and you should be off and running. If you do not like how the new BIOS affects your system, follow the steps and re-flash your BIOS off the saved bin file you created when you flashed the BIOS. If for some reason the system does not restart, you will have to contact your vendor or manufacturer. The EPROM chip can go bad sometimes, even when everything was smooth sailing, and will have to be changed out. This procedure is not for the meek, as it is a delicate task and should be done by the vendor or manufacturer of your product.

The decision to upgrade your BIOS is yours. By following the procedures outlined in this article you agree that Motherboard HomeWorld is in no way liable or responsible for any resulting loss of system functionality. If your system is working without problems or conflicts, then it is not recommended that you flash your BIOS.
