I'm sorry if this seems to be a dumb question, but I'm not familiar with this topic and I'd like to learn a bit. Several years ago I upgraded my Asus K53e computer with a new Bios from Asus. I haven't touched bios since. I am very interested in faster performance and if there is something I should do with bios, that would be great. I already cleaned the machine with Hitman Pro and erased all temp files. That helped a lot. My wife uses the computer. I have an i7. She has the i5. World of difference. The i5 details are Model: K53E BBR17 Processor: Intel Core i5-2450M Socket G2 2.5GHz BIOS: K53.217 10/25/2011 Came with: Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit but I upgraded to Windows 10. That seemed to slow it down.
