: I was wondering if I would need to update my BIOS or install any new patches for my Asus K7M Slot Motherbaord while running Windows XP


DO NOT EVER "update" your BIOS unless you KNOW that the "update" will either fix your problem or provide the feature that you NEED. In that case you have nothing to gain and your BIOS to corrupt. You find out if the update will help by hearing it directly from your mainboard maker (as a required update) OR you find the fix described/listed in the BIOS Release Notes posted with the BIOS updates. If winxp runs OK, accept it as a minor miracle and leave the BIOS alone. Post again if you have specific problems and someone will probably have some suggestions.

Good Luck,
Henry
