Just I read the HowTo about the bios update - for what I need such things for graphic devices? Could it solve any problems? :?:

Because graphics devices nowadays also have an installed BIOS/Firmware :)

Could it solve any problems?


By the nature of updates, they are supposed to. Unfortunately, Matrox doesn't
provide a Changelog about what has changed from previous releases to the
most current ones, so suggesting a BIOS update to a user who has troubles
is always a bit complicated :-/

Practically, it is never wrong to have the latest version flashed onto your card,
so you could download the BIOS update and read out your current BIOS
with the '-o' flag and check if your version is the most current one.
If not, it is save to upgrade it.
