Hi There, There are currently no easy ways to update a bios through linux at all - including live cd's. Your best bet is to make a bios update USB stick (or floppy depending on the age of the computer) Here's a link to those instructions: http://www.biosflash.com/e/bios-boot-usb-stick.htm Alternatively, speaking from my own experience with a similar situation, you can take the hard drive out, use it in place of the usb stick, boot from it, update your bios, and go from there.
Sounds like your OS installation got corrupted somehow. See if you can boot to the recovery/ diagnostic partition if you have one. (On dells it is F8 at startup, but yours may be different). If you can get in there run the diagnostics and see if it finds any problems.
I would also try booting into a bootable version of linux like ubuntu. You can simply download it and burn to a cd, then put that in your drive and boot linux right off the disc. If you can successfully boot that way then you know that your hardware is ok and it is a problem with your OS. If that is the case you need to reinstall windows or try doing a windows repair.
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!
