tuning up, using sisoft!



i ran sisofts performance tune-up wizard and it tells me a few things. how do i solve em? the help is stupid, i trust you people more.
1-> Tip T212 - The BIOS can be shadowed. Shadowing is a technique of copying the BIOS program from slow EPROM or EEPROM to RAM. This may yield some increase in performance.
2->The BIOS can be updated (flashed) but is surface mounted. If the update goes wrong you may not be able to get a new chip to replace the old BIOS. This does not mean that you cannot recover from an unsuccessful flash but it removes an option. (Intel mainboards and those using AWARD BIOS have a recovery option)
3->and also a simple one, i know i am a retard but i really dont need it, how do i uninstall accessiblities functions in win2k?

Everything I have read about shadowing the bios, and video bios, has said that it improved performance in dos, but does not improve performance in windows.

As for 1->...this link will answer your question and more!!

2-> I've never had a problem updating my bios. Just make sure to boot to a floppy with the files needed for the update. The floppy should contain only the bare minimum files for booting..i.e. no memory managers. Check your mb vendors website for changes made to each bios revision and see if they apply to you. If they don't then don't upgrade your bios.

3-> I don't know off the top of my head, but I would guess Add/Remove programs in the control panel, then add remove windows components.

Hope that helps.

P.S. At the bottom of the page linked above is a pdf version of the bios guide that is perfect for printing!
