First you need to find out if there is a BIOS update available for your motherboard model, and if there is, whether you need it. Before we go searching for that information, you will need to locate your motherboard model number/name. This can be done by looking at the documentation that came with your system, or even just by opening up the case and looking for the name silk screened onto the motherboard.
If you have a system that was built by a major manufacturer, such as Dell or IBM, look on the manufacturer's website under your system's name or number to find updates.
If your computer was assembled by a smaller manufacturer, look for the motherboard manual to identify it. If this fails, use a program like Sisoft's Sandra to identify your motherboard model and manufacturer.
To determine your motherboard make and model through Sandra first down load and install the program. Start up Sandra and double click 'mainboard information.' This should give you both the manufacturers name, and the model number of your motherboard. Note down that information.
Once you have your motherboard manufacturer name and model, it's time to find your motherboard's model, current BIOS revision and look up what newer BIOS revisions are available. There are two ways to do this, the first through the manufacturers automatic BIOS update software, and the second by searching through the manufacturers website support section.
Here's some links to Asus, MSI, ABIT and Gigabyte's BIOS support pages to get you started. If you don't know the website of your motherboard manufacturer, have a look below, or run a search through Google.
Motherboard Manufacturer Websites
Once you find the website for the maker of your motherboard, look around for their BIOS update tool, if they have one. If they do, download, install and run this program to find the exact make and model of your board.
hope this helps
