Kelvin my friend .. there are no 'stupid questions'. However there Are indeed stupid answers. (This, I hope, is not one of them.hehe)

Generally speaking-If it is not broke-do not fix it. (ie..bios updates ect.)
But, that said:
Updated driver can serve many purposes. Some are to correct 'qlitches' in previously released software (the driver)
and others are advancing technologies, able to do more with the same hardware.
Question is : Do you need to update your drivers ? Short Answer: Maybe.
We know that there is a sound software/driver issue with the Gseries that 'we' are waiting for the fix to.
In general, here, if it is an official update -- Go for It !!!
If it is the bios -- skip the 'on-board' updater - and follow 'flashing bios instructions' ie.. 32bit thumbdrive.ect.

If this doesnt clear up your question, please continue ... c.
