When I built my rig (for the first time ever) back in October, I updated all of my drivers but never thought to update my motherboard's BIOS. Is that something that is necessary and is it as easy as downloading it from the manufacturer's site and just running the installer? Is there any prep work I need to do or any precautions I should follow? I've heard that it's something that shouldn't be messed with unless I'm running into problems.
The reason why I'm asking is that I'm playing Just Cause 2 from Steam and it's constantly freezing and CTD (a very common problem among JC2's players) and updating the BIOS is on the "checklist" of things to do for stability in the game.
I'm a bit leery of this process because it's something I've never done as a PC owner. Anyone got any pointers?
