[B]If you think about it logically, why would manufacturers make any bios updates (and the programs used to update/flash a bios) available to the general public if there was more chance of messing up a system rather than upgrading it?

These days, the only real thing you have to worry about is if your computer loses power while the flash is in progress [/B]
No one said there was a greater risk but there is [B]some[/B] risk. If the pc works & you won't get any benefits from flashing the bios then don't muck about with it. In this case though I would agree it [B]is[/B] worth while.

Think the main problem is people using the wrong bios file. If you are going to flash it be 110% sure you have the correct one.

As for finding the m/b revision your best bet is to take the side off the case & see if it's printed on the board.
