goto your boards website.. asus.com abit.com etc... download the updated version of the bios for that exact board. There is typcailly a flash program to download, it'll give you instructions on how to flash the bios..

Chances are that if you were prompted to update your BIOS, there are other components in your PC that you will need to update your drivers for as well.

In addition, I would check with MS's website and search for a list of their hardware compatibility list.

Well, update BIOS is a very serious case.
Usually, we seldom need to update the BIOS. Unless cannot support some hardwares.
Any mistake during updating BIOS may spoil your mobo.

AMD Athlon 64x2 4000+
2GB Kingston DDRII667Mhz
MSI 256MB GeForce8500GT
Western Digital 160GB SATAII HDD
Maxtor 80GB 8M ATA133 HDD
17" Samsung 793Dfx Monitor
Win XP Pro
