I want to update this bios, but the only 8k5a2 bios update is for the + models. Can I use it or would it cause problems?

Thanks,

BIOS chips run like $200 to replace (factory)

Although there is a sticky, that some 1 can reprogram them.

BUT, e-mail / call the OEM Tech support to see if you are able to do this.

I really don't recommend it.

Certain items are model specific and could give you a "no boot" condition.

Good Luck.

Cool, thanks Ronin, I'll grab that and get it going tonight.

Warrior: that's the kind of thing I was worried could happen.

Much appreciated, both of you.
