You the man, if you lived in the UK i'd buy you a drink or 10 for all the help you have always given me!!!!!! :-)
So i read the guide, it was awesome, i updated my bios in increments i went from F2 to F4, F4 to F7, F7 to F10 and then to F12, it worked first time and flawlessly....!!!
Thanks so so much for that guide, without that, dude, i think i would have messed my machine up.. when i say i downloaded it 5 times i meant i was checking to see if the checksum error appeared on every download, btw it did come up each time i updated but i was still able to successfully update the bios.
Ok so iv updated, but now my M.I.T section of Bios has a few new options in there and i am not sure what to do to optimize them, can you possibly check to see if my attempts are correct please?
the page was too big so had to take twp pics...
very true mate, but sometimes we all tend to jump too far ahead, luckily i was able to control myself from pressing the enter button at "are you sure you want to update?" and was able to ask the question...PHEW!
glad it all worked out for you on your system, bios update is one thing i have NEVER attempted (was too scared) but when you done your one, i was inspired :-). Thanks for the help and advice mate appreciate it all.
