It depends who your manufacture is. Find out what brand is your board and visit their site.

I'm doing this for my PC Hardware class and its on an old gateway. I looked at the motherboard itself and could not find anything on it. I mean this is an old Pentium 1 gateway.

Well you can't really upgrade BIOS just like that. Each BIOS comes from a different manufacture. You just can't use let say umm Gigabyte drivers to upgrade an Asus motherboard. They are specific to the manufacture. You can download softwares like Aida 32 to see all the specs of your computer.
