I have a question about doing a bios update on a gateway nv52 laptop, so here is the story.
I'm getting ready to order a new hard drive for my lap top so I can get it running again because it's my mobile repair pc. For when I have to go and fix some one's pc for them, I keep diag programs and varius boot disk stored as iso's. Well I made recovery disk and gateway sent me a win 7 upgrade disk to install win 7, on one disk has all the drivers and a folder with a new bios version. I didn't update the bios the last time I had win 7 on it and I have seen a few threads here where people said they had to update thier bios to run win 7 properly. I am some what famiur with the bios update as I have done two of my pc's this year, 1 being my xp 3000+ pc and the other my compaq. But I am leery of doing it with my laptop because of the numerus threads of failed bios updates on lap tops. I don't want a perminate paper weight as I have three in my room that serve that function and one is mine (the nv 52). So should I update the bios? Or should I hold off and see if any bsod errors pop up to do this?
any advice would be greatly appriciated
