    Indeed, if it goes wrong then you can end up needing a new motherboard.
    And an alarming percentage do go wrong.

    Can you tell us that you know with 100% certainty that you need the BIOS update to get the video card to work, and that the new BIOS release notes specifically reference that this is a cure?

    We cannot verify this as we have no idea what video card you have.

    The card i have just added is a XFX GeForce 7950 GX2 Extreme Hear is the exact link to the one i bought with all specs http://www.amazon.co.uk/XFX-GeForce.../B000G0HJZI/ref=de_a_smtd/026-1842426-3697240 Yes i am absolutely positive that that is the problem, i have read countless threads seen the same thing in forums. even the guy i bought it from sugested it. I tryed to do it myslef but i dont think it worked as my computer is still working :p
