Updating BIOS??
« on: November 26, 2017, 09:58:41 PM »
Is this something that needs to be done periodically and if so, is there anyone out there that can walk me through it? I have a Gigabyte MoBo if that matters.

Unless you you're having issues you shouldn't need to mess with it.

I correct computer problems daily and only mess with BIOS setting when someone messes with it.

OK Thud, maybe I'll leave well enough alone. The only "issue" I have with my gamer is, the SOB will start itself back up after I have shut it down. It's pretty annoying. I work around it by turning the power supply off after shutting the computer down. I also toyed with the idea that the long load times I am experiencing in DCS 2.1 might be cured by a more current version of the BIOS.

I had a win 10 laptop that had the start back up issue. Suggest you try this first.

Hopefully that fixed it.  If not, I would check to see what the setting is set to for when you shut down.  It might be set to Sleep instead of shut down.

Worked like a charm Thud  :thumbsup:  The setting was indeed, "Fast startup". I unchecked it and the problem seems to have gone away.
