In System device manager under plug and play BIOS properties
there is a switch to disable NVRAM/ESCD updates.  What is it
and how do I use it?  Also how is it related to startup
message that ESCD is being updated?

Whn plug and play hardwarde is removed/added the BIOS normally writes this info in the registers (the ESCD). you can disable this if you encounter problems. but normally it should be left on.

I've had problems with autodetection when I crash and reboot so
is it safe to leave it off unless I intend to upgrade hardware?
Or does the BIOS need to be updated on a regular basis?

No, normally it doesnt need to be upodated unless a card is added/removed or relocated. it should be safe to leave this option off. I would recommend you to see if your hardware wendor ahs a new bios revision available, as this seems to fix most problems.
