There are instructions at your motherboard manufacturer's web site. But basicall you download the bios, unzip it to a bootble disk, preferably a win98 boot disk, then reboot your computer with the bootable disk. Then you activate the bios flasher.

But you should check the instructions at your motherboard's manufacturer website.

Well if you don't know that much, you need to do some research.

Doesn't really matter as long as you apply it correctly. Its just a matter of personal preference IMHO.

Maybe with watercooling rig with liquid nitrogen running through it. :laughing:

I've been into computers for a long time. I'm only new here. Saying that, I haven't learned what I know from one place. This is accumulated knowledge. But I have learned much from here and other forums. Most notably the MSI forum (my motherboard manufacturer) and the amd forum.

Your manufacturer should have a forum. Go check it. Then look though AMD's forums. Lots of info. You might need glasses if you don't have them already when you finish reading. :tired:
