BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

Greetings!

I have Acer Aspire 5750G. My current BIOS version is 1.07. The latest version is 1.12.

There are a few versions in between. Should I do incremental updates and reach 1.12 or should I just go direct to 1.12?

Many Thanks!

Bios updates are cumulative, so you only need the latest.

You also don't need to update the bios unless there is a fix in it/them that fixes an issue you may be having. For the most part updating the bios is as easy as updating a driver, only if a bios update goes wrong you can't roll back to the old and you basically end up with a nice paperweight.

I'm having BSOD issues.

There are updates to BIOS, but I do not understand the lingo on what exactly is being updated:
Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / Aspire / Aspire 5750G

I'm just obtaining knowledge atm.
