    New to SysOpt.com

    Hello all,

    I've spent a few days (more than a few hours!) reading through these threads, and I can definately say WOW!! Great information, great discussions, super Knowledgeable people!

    I've got a million questions - but I'll just ask one, for now - what is the reason for flashing the BIOS?

    Thanks to my new self-described computer geek of a friend (hehe), i've got some idea, but would LOVE to hear more about it!

    Thanks to all!

    Welcome to SysOpt!

    The Basic Input/Output System provides the roadmap to all computer operations for each of the various subsystems. Most motherboard vendors release BIOS updates on a regular basis, as each new version typically offers improved performance, stability, or compatibility.

    Hope this helps,
