Updating bios benefit No registration adult dating chat
You apparently have no reason at all to believe that changing to a new BIOS will solve anything. When you say screwed, you mean it no longer works and repairshop can't fix it and you can't replace it with a different hard drive? Im not sure if i need to secure bios with a password or not because several ppl say thats a must and i need to disable usb boot as well. It controls the keyboard, monitor, disk drives and other devices. But if i dont do that, is doing the secure bios with password and disable bio pretty safe then? But ppl tell me this is very simple and very safe... So you had bad expeirence with updating bios or know of lot of others who update bios and screwed their computer? If so, i would just do the secure bios and disable usb boot.

But they did say if something goes wrong with updating bios update... I took long time before i installed bitlocker but did it because someone on another forum was helping me via the forum posts. I thought very few ppl assuming they dont know much about security right?
