    Eido - TX man!

    The questions were not about Steam issues.


    RE: MB drivers - there is on on Asus site, P6T Deluxe V2 1003 BIOS (2010/04/01 update)
    which is more current than mine.

    1) If I update it, my OC settings will not be affected or will they?

    2) Also, I assume the 1003 includes all the prior Bios update fixes?

    EDIT - I also see there are updates for my MB SATA controller for ACHI/Raid support - perhaps that explains my SSD load issues? V 8.9.0.1023 23 Mg !!

    Hi Doug, it is suggested that when updating the bios that you should do so with the system set to the bios defaults.
    Just get a pen and paper and write down all the settings only takes about 2-3 minutes. Using the ASUS Update utility is very easy when updating the bios. Just updated mine 2 days ago.

    (But remember that there is always a risk when updating the bios that it could fail and render the machine useless). At that point you would have to contact ASUS for a new Bios chip which is easily changed.

    Yes the latest version will always have all the updates it is not necessary to load each bios release before the latest.

  3. The following user thanks 4hams For this above post:

    Tx for the reply!

    I wish there was a read me from Asus explaining what these updates "fix" or enhance.

    I think this is beyond my skill level & unless I know what the bennefits are I will leave well enough alone - sure wish I knew what advantages I might benefit from...

    I think I have a utility that can update the bios from the XP desktop - but if MB settings are not ready for that it may not be worth the risk...

    & with my luck the chip from Asus would be in an unaccessable place on the MB...

    Further, the 23Mg SATA update zip file from Asus has a corrupt driver file in it !! or so winrar indicates !!

    Doug, in most cases your bios does not need to ever be updated if things are running correctly. The old saying don't fix it if it ain't broke sort of applies.

    Totally agree with 4hams here. I've killed a BIOS before from a bad BIOS update. That's why I only buy Gigabyte dual BIOS motherboards - to protect me against my own occasional stupidity. And if you ever update your BIOS, do not do in Windows even if you can. Install the update and the update program as a bootable USB and reboot your machine to make the changes - with the machine connected to A/C power (if a laptop) and to a UPS battery if a desktop.

    On ASUS site for your board, when you click on download, set your O/S as Win7-64 bit, and then click on BIOS, each BIOS lists what is changed/added/deleted. For example, BIOS 1003 says:

    P6T Deluxe V2 1003 BIOS
    1. Fix HDD size shown incorrectly if it's bigger than 2.2TB
    2. Fix DEL and F8 keys doesn't work with Microsoft Reclusa Keyboard
    So, no reason to upgrade to that

    Now the BIOS before that says:
    P6T Deluxe V2 0901 BIOS
    1. Improve system stability
    2. Support new CPUs. Please refer to our website at: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/c...Language=en-us
    System stability looks like a good thing to me, so if you have the older 0707 BIOS (from Jan 11, 2010), you might want to update. But if you already have 0901, no need to go up to 1003.
