Can anybody here give an idea of the approx cost to do a bios update. I'm only asking because a lady I know has had her PC into a local main street computer shop here (Kaitaia) with intermitant shut down & freezing problems on a machine she purchased from them. After returning the computer many times for repair (being charged extra each time) they now have told her that it was a bios problem (on a M/B they replaced as part of the diagnostic proceedure) and have asked for $150 to update it, mentioning it was half price since she is a previous customer.
Surely the charge is a bit much for a half hour job (max). They have also told her her 1 yr warranty has run out yesterday!
