    Default Flashing the BIOS

    I was needing to know about flashing the BIOS using the @BIOS program. I had already used it when later on I discovered that you shouldn't. I'm currently using the GA-EP45-UD3P FA version motherboard and after flashing the board with this @BIOS program it's still seems to working okay. I will not use it again. But are you saying that since I've use it my mobo will eventually start having problems? So if not at this point what should I do? Should I try to flash the mobo again using Q-Flash or simply leave it as is and hope everthing is okay?

    it will be fine,q-flash is more reliable as in it wont give you a bad flash like @bios can,when a flash goes wrong using @bios you wont be able to boot at all,leave it now its working fine its only while flashing that it can go wrong hence the advice to flash with q-flash

    Also recommend looking at the Flash guide in this forum here http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/bios...h-guide-27576/
    Oh and one other thing I read somewhere that its best to only flash up one or two versions ( ie go from FA to F1 or F2 - not FA to F10 you see?)

    You would be fine flashing from F1 to F10 for example, but some do believe this could cause issues.

    Not sure why though, it is fine really. If you do run into issue with a huge update difference just try one in the middle of your jump.

    No offense meant Madmax2911, so no calling me out to the Thunderdome!
