Default BIOS update

If you know how to update a BIOS or know a place that runs you through the process, let me know.

It's a Compaq Presario 4770 computer.

When I boot up my computer with the new NIC I purchased, I get this:

Intel UNDI, PXE-2.0 (build 071)
Copyright (C) 1997,1998,1999 Intel Corporation

PXE-E00: Could not find enough free base memory.

I looked up what I need to do to solve this, here is the information I found:

"System does not have enough free memory to run PXE image. The Boot Agent was unable to find enough free base memory (below 640K) to install the PXE client software. The system cannot boot via PXE in its current configuration. The error returns control to the BIOS and the system does not attempt to remote boot. If this error persists, try updating your system's BIOS to the most-recent version."

* Preboot Execution Environment. PXE provides a way for a system to initiate a network connection to various servers prior to loading an OS. This network connection supports a number of standard IP protocols such as DHCP and TFTP, and can be used for purposes such as software installation and system inventory maintenance. *

Well, the error is still there so I want to try updating.
