Hi there,

no you donīt need to update your bios, just upgrade to service pack 2 because itīs just an pure windows thing.

May I ask you how you get this idea for updating bios before installing SP2?? :)

Hi

The BIOS has nothing to do with the Microsoft service packs!!!!
Your sounds like a newbie and therefore I’m patience with you ;)

The service packs are provided by Microsoft and these patches fix only the Windows code mistakes! ;) You know?

Just for info: the BIOS update is mostly very risky! Many users updates the BIOS and don’t know that a wrong BIOS or wrong update procedure could damage the notebook!

Hello Julie

As far as I know you do not need BIOS update but I am wondering that you still use WXP without SP2.

If you are often online please run Windows Update option in Internet Explorer (Tools > Windows Updates) and install all latest Microsoft updates.
