Unless your very familiar with computer repair, there is no real reason to persue this issue.  Flashing a bios with the wrong flash would render your MB worthless.

Basicly you would have to crack the case and get the Motherboard info, and then proceed to that web site.

A program you might want to try is belarc advisor,

 http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

That program should give you an idea of what to google, and find your downloads.

Unless you have a serious issue with your present BIOS, I would not fiddle with it, it isn't worth the agravation

Icecube is right. I wouldn't update you BIOS if there's nothing wrong with the current one. The only time you would need to update your BIOS is to allow you to use newer CPUs or something like that. If it ain't broken, don't fix it.

Oh okay thank you vary much for both of your guys's help & advise it means so much, the reason on why I was asking that question is simply because people have been telling me that newer version of the BIOS would mean smoother running of the whole computer.....

Sometimes it can help but if you have performance issues ie. slow programs etc. I'd suggest upgrading your hardware. If you'd like to upgrade an you want some advice you know where to come.

I'll close this topic but if you'd like it re-opened PM me or another moderator.
