The process of upgrading the BIOS on a computer is also
called "FLASHING" the BIOS.
On very old computers (486 and older) the BIOS may be
permanently programmed into read-only memory chips,
which are not flash-able, although it may be possible to
replace the chips, or re-program them using special
equipment by a qualified technician.
On virtual all modern computers, the BIOS can be updated
using new data and a special FLASH program available via
download from the manufacturer.
This is a very dangerous procedure that can destroy the
motherboard if performed incorrectly, and should not be
performed unless absolutely necessary, such as when
you computer or software will not run properly without it.
Most mother board manufacturer's (for example Asus) offer
software patches and downloads on their web site, as well
as BIOS upgrades.
Note that the BIOS is 100% board specific, installing the wrong
BIOS can permanently destroy *********** board, so make sure
that you download the correct one for your board.
Once you have the downloaded the BIOS upgrade, there are 3
1) The downloaded file is self-installing, either from Windows,
or it creates a boot-able diskette, which in turn contains all
the files needed to update (FLASH) the BIOS.
2) The BIOS comes with a a separate installer (.exe) which
either runs from Windows or via a boot-able diskette.
3) The existing BIOS has a "built-in" flash utility, accessable
through the BIOS settings. This utility runs at a very low
level without any operating system to self-update the BIOS
from your download binary file, located on the hard drive or
on a diskette.
This is by far the best and safest way to do the job, but only
if your motherboard and (existing BIOS) has that capability.
In any event, the first step is to visit the manufacturer's WEB
site, then go to SUPPORT or DOWNLOADS.
Find the exact model and version number of you motherboard
in the manufacturer's list, and download the latest BIOS
update, and any installation (or flashing) utilities that come
1) Follow the manufacturer's instruction exactly !!!!
2) Do not turn off the computer until the BIOS update is
complete, and you are instructed to do so !!!
The computer BIOS is the lowest level program on your PC,
without which the computer CANNOT read the disk drives or
perform the lowest necessary functions.
If the BIOS is damaged, or
If the wrong upgrade is installed, or
If the upgrade is performed incorrectly, or
If the upgrade is interrupted or crashes before finishing,
the computer may become unable to repair itself, and
the mother-board may become permanently unusable.
(This depends on the actual mother-board and BIOS design,
and on the damage done by the failed installation)

SOURCE: no processor bios update
Sounds like you need to flash the BIOS (UPDATE the BIOS).
Do you know how to do this? The way I do it is by setting up a USB key as a boot device and have the FLASH utility on there....
HERE IS A LINK which contains files to create the FLASH utility either on:
CD (via ISO IMAGE)
... as well as some guides on what to do and other helpful stuff.
Its worth noting that if you have made any changes to BIOS, they will be restored to the 'factory' settings when you FLASH in the updated BIOS.
This should work, let me know if it doesn't.

SOURCE: BIOS update for Asus A7V-ML
For branded computers like HP, Compaq, Dell the only place you can get the correct bios updates would be your computer manufacturer website under the support link. These companies do not use industry standard motherboards so it could corrupt your system to update from any other source. Hope this helps.
