it is mate i wouldnt worry mate ive done a couple of benqs and it was very easy everyone feels the same way before their 1st one but its worth doin unless you fancy payining everytime theres a updated f/w it takes longer to take thing the thing to pieces than it does to flash and i know 1st hand there are plenty of people on here that will help (it seems i allways get stuck with sammys lol) give it ago mate as long as you have a sata point with a working chipset you wont have any trouble just follow the tut and ask if you get stuck.

just read the tut, wow you call all that easy lol. must admit it looks pretty straight forward and very well writen.

unfortunately i dont have compatable chip set, mine being sis 748 nor do i have the sata ports.

any advice as to where to go from here would be greatly appreciated

cheers
