I am having a bit of a brain malfunction here but I just want to be sure. When you update the BIOS of a machine are you simply updating the Chipset Drivers? Are they one in the same. I have a Intel Q965/Q963 Express Chipset board and maybe I have my terminology backwards but I need to be sure. I was told to update the BIOS at intel but the only thing they show me is the Chipset Driver. I assume they are the same? I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. I am trying to update everything. Some things seem to be unsupported and others have an update. However even the Intell Update Manager tool does not seem to be working as when I search on the Intel Q965/Q963 Express Chipset it tells me the graphics driver for the G35 and the Intel Q965/Q963 Express Chipset have a graphics driver update. Okay that is all well and good but I still do not know if I have updated the BIOS. Any thoughts on this?
