I know that seems a simple question but i read a lot of these threads about updating your bios, I also know that if it's not broke then dont fix it.

What i really want to know is, how would i check my bios to see what it is and also would updating it improve my machine, or should i just leave it alone?
thanx in advance.

Start with the FAQ's but ......

If the PC has no major problems then LEAVE BIOS ALONE !!!
Flashing (changing) a bios can wreck the computer !!!

I would leave well alone, the only reason you might want to flash your BIOS would be if it was needed to perhaps recognize a bigger hard drive or a more powerful processor but flashing your BIOS for the sake of it would not improve the performance of your system.

So is flashing and upgrading the same thing? If not is it ok to upgrade?

They are the same, and as the others have said if you have no problem DON'T do it, you could end up with a dead computer. If it ain't broke don't fix it.
