Specs: Windows XP Professional, IntelĀ® PentiumĀ® 4 processor
Hi guys,

I've recently been told that I need to update my BIOS, I downloaded the update from the sony website.

I'm running Windows XP Professional SP3. My Vaio model # is PCV-RS246.

When I try to run the .exe, I get an error message: "WBFLASH - cannot read the system information".

If all is working well I recommend you leave it alone. Flashing the BIOS can result in turning your motherboard into scrap.

Only update a BIOS file if it will improve the performance or add a feature, like running a newer CPU.

OtheHill, I had a friend tell me to update the BIOS "just to be safe".

What do you recommend?
