    Duh, put the old Bios back in. The update web sites all tell you not to update bios unless you are having a specific problem that the new bios fixes. Newer is not better, it's just different.

    This is some good advice. Write it down and look @ it next time you think of updating your bios.

    heh

    you should always keep the motherboard flashed to the latest bios. AMD and Intel both supply updated microcode patches failry reglary to bios makers so even if you dont directly suddfer from problems the firmware can improve performance and fix potential bugs or issues in the cpus.

    However, the last thing you should be doing is messing with the bios when you dont know what you're doing. Granted youo need to learn somehow, but learn by understanding most of what the configuration options are and how they cann affet your hardware after being reset to default when flashing.
