Updating the BIOS can cause untold damage. You should never flash the BIOS if you have no need to. You don't go and buy a new car just because you can, you go and buy a new one because you have to or want to. Therefore you shouldn't flash the BIOS if the system is running happily. A computer that's six years old isn't going to suddenly get a lot faster because it has a different date on the front screen.

Hello jerry1967

I agree with Neil Jones about bios updates, never do these, if they are working why update :)

But I am getting a lot of error messages. How do I fix them?

Regards

Without knowing what messages you're getting it's kind of hard to say. You get messages but the computer works. Like saying I can't get the car to go but if I take the handbrake off and put it in neutral it'll move.

That is a problem with the web page you're looking at.
