does updating the bios of the geforce 2MX gives any more power to it , and what is the the last version to be out ?
(i think mine is quite old) :(

When you find an update, download it! because my motto is: "the newer, the better!".
Generally, a newer BIOS makes the card more compatible, but I don't think that it improves speed.

I agree with bobotns
for example, i updated the firmware of my cd burner
now it can rip audio at 32x before 24x
it also has better capability of reading scratched cds
and many other improvements

Alway update when ever and where ever you can. That way you will alway be maintaining your equipment in top operating form.

Just be careful when flashing any bios for any device. There is usually no going back if things go pear shaped. This especially applies to updating DVD/CD-roms as if you enter the wrong details into the flash program you could flash the wrong one.
If you know what you are doing it should be ok though

I upgraded the firmware of my cdrw and it made the thing worse instead of better > recording quality stayed the same but it hardly ever reads any disc except the ones burned with it...fortunately the other "normal" cd-rom drive has no problems reading.
So my advice: be careful...personally I wouldn't use new firmware or a new bios if I didn't need it.

That s right Samor...
Be careful w/ bioses:
Think as if ur Geforce bios was ur motherboard bios...
My advice is: NEVER upgrade bioses because of a lot of things dude...(Too long to explain ;) )
