: My computer freezes up a lot, especialy when i play games, i think it I need to upgrade the bios, but im not sure, if anyone has any information on how to fix this problem, i would be more than greatful to hear it. thamks, travis


Make sure that you have installed all of the Operating System patches and/or service packs that are available. Then find and install all of the very latest drivers for your onboard features and your interface cards - especially video and sound. Check for hardware conflicts (windows Device Manager). Try that awhile (cured my similar problems).

Check your mainboard maker's web site for BIOS updates. Read the release notes - do not flash the BIOS unless the maker says it will fix your problem.

Good Luck,
Henry
