Risk updating bios

Does anyone know whether or not it would be necessary to proceed with this BIOS upgrade (to A11) to support the proposed graphics card upgrade?

( nvidia GTX 7xxx series or AMD R9 ) If yes, has anybody successfully managed to update their BIOS from A02 directly to A11 without raising the BIOS version incrementally, to A03, A04......

i am picking parts for my first PC i found a motherboard to go with my gigabyte website says. Hi everyone, I have the Maximus VI Formula motherboard and just noticed that there was a bios update to 0903.

To enable AM3 AMD FX-Series CPU support, please update your motherboard with the most current BIOS found in your motherboard’s download section. Well i have read around and seen ALOT of people have f*&ed their motherboards updating. upd...there is an MSI Motherboard sale going on that also gives you free Memory but in order to do that I would have to update my BIOS (according to PCPart Picker) because I'm using a i5 4690K CPU(Haswell Refresh) and would not be compatible with the motherboard unless I do the update A few moments... I already have the e7200 processor, so there's no going back. Using the ASUS EZ Update utility, it downloaded the latest bios from the internet and went to the "updating screen". Hi Mac Rumors, I just wanted to know if it's okay to update my software without backing my files up.

(Note: BIOS file and boot files should fit on a floppy disk. "afudos /ip4c800b.rom" is the command that will install it. Your monitor will display the update's progress with a series of messages: "Reading file," then "Erasing flash," then "Writing flash." The "writing flash" message will be followed with a percentage counter that tells you how far the write has proceeded.

If the BIOS file is too large to fit with boot files, consider using the EZ Flash method described below.)Insert the motherboard support CD into optical drive. The final message will be "Verifying flash." DO NOT switch off or reboot at any point in this process or you will ruin your motherboard.

If you built your own computer, a BIOS update would come from your motherboard vendor.

risk updating bios-81

I have an Alienware Auorora R4 desktop which currently has BIOS version A02 (since i purchased it).CPU- AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processormotherboard- Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3PI have been having a series of BSODs on O/C system: Win 7 x64 ASUS X79-Deluxe mobo with 8/15/13 BIOS ver 0401. But on Tom's I have read that one should not update BIOS except under very specific conditions because of risk of doing so. Well bassicly as you can see here : my BIOS Version is outdated. I want to upgrade from intel celeron D 331 to intel core 2 duo e7200, so I need to upgrade bios. Edit: Stupid me, motherboard is asus p5ld2 SEHey guys and girls, So I recently built a computer and i seems to be running well. if so were do i go to find the software, because I can't seem to find it... Is there any risk of messing up while updating or a risk of losing files?I have a few questions with the BIOS updating and the driver updating. I haven't exactly done this before and I don't have an external HDD yet.(Select Tools YES)Wait for your system to check current BIOS information. Select the drive letter with the BIOS update file, then select the file. After the file check is finished, click "Yes" to update your BIOS. When the update is finished, remove the floppy or USB drive and reboot.Enter the BIOS Menu and load "Setup Default."Reboot. If it isn't installed already, install the ASUS Update utility.
