Click on Start and then Run.
In the text box in the Run window, type msinfo32 and click OK. This will open the System Information program.
When System Information first opens, it defaults to the System Summary, a short list with some of the most important information about your computer system listed.
On the right side of the program, locate the BIOS Version/Date entry.
This field contains the BIOS version that is currently running on your motherboard.
This field may also contain additional information such as the BIOS date, BIOS manufacturer, motherboard manufacturer and the motherboard model number.
Note: If the BIOS date is shown, it can be useful in determining the current BIOS version from a motherboard manufacturer's website if the version is not clear here.
Write down your existing BIOS settings so you can restore them after you've flashed the new BIOS firmware.
Determine the correct BIOS firmware that you need for your computer.
Check your computer manufacturer's website for this information.
If you have a custom-built system, check the motherboard manufacturer's website for the latest BIOS firmware.
Download the latest BIOS firmware specific to your computer.
Some manufacturers provide custom software that initiates the update through your operating system; others provide a third-party application that allows you to flash the BIOS through DOS.
Run the installer or executable file that you downloaded.
Alternately, if the BIOS firmware update is handled via your operating system, simply click "Update," "Write," "Confirm" or a similarly-named button.
If you are prompted for an installation CD, insert the media into your disc drive.
If the CD contains an "autoexec.bat" file, the BIOS will flash automatically when you restart the computer.
While the BIOS flashing procedure varies, nearly all manufacturers provide detailed instructions for completing the task.
Turn off your computer.
Wait about one minute and then reboot.
On some systems, the flash update will restart your computer automatically.
As your computer reboots, go immediately into the BIOS setup menu and look for an option to "Restore Defaults" or "Load Fail-Safe Defaults."
This will be on the main page or the last page of a tabbed menu.
Navigate using the arrow keys on your keyboard and follow all on-screen instructions.
When finished, save your new settings and then exit BIOS.
Your computer will load the operating system.
hope this helps
