    Does firmware drivers get completely replaced by OS drivers at boot?

    To my knowledge, when an OS such as Windows 8.1 is booted, all firmware/bios drivers are replaced by more appropriate OS drivers in the boot drive during start up. I learnt this happens for the latest versions of Windows. Am I right? Do all bios drivers get replaced? Does this happen with the latest versions of OS X as well?

    If this is so, then you can discard firmware as suspected of causing problems on a computer that's already booted up. Unless there's a problem that's causing a driver to remain in RAM after boot.

    I have never heard of an operating system install affecting BIOS is anyway what so ever. If you are having issues it is most likely related to your drivers imo. Search you PC manufactures website for drivers and download the most current stable version and install those.
