You can't use a generic BIOS update, you will need to find out who made your motherboard.

If you don't know, try CTBIOS (a quick search on google will find a copy).

If it doesn't give you a URL try looking it up here:

IMPORTANT!!!

I flashed my BIOS a few months ago (AWARD BIOS) and it failed and my machine wouldn't start. I tried everything. It turned out that the AWARD BIOS had a write-protected section. It was eventualy taken care of by a professional. Contact him first http://www.angelfire.com/dc/apparition/submit.html

At least you'll get the best advice

You need to have virus protection and bios shadowing disabled in you bios before you flash it.

Was that what caused yours to fail?
