There are two seperate bios update downloads
for that board.
One is the old traditional dos based using a boot floppy and the other is usable directly from windows.
Next to the downloads is an "how to update" link for each. Click and read.
Rule #1. Never
running if you're flashing from windows. Disable every
running app. Updating the bios via a floppy boot disk avoids all this and still the method I prefer myself.
Regardless of which way you go, disable any virus detection that already may be enabled in the bios itself first as well. Typicly you will see boot virus detection enabled in there somewhere.
Is there some particular reason you're upgrading the bios?
If you look at the bios description in the link above, the difference between v.2.10 and v.2.50 doesn't address much. In fact, the "update cpu code" from version 2.10 to version 2.50 addresses only one cpu upgrade (Core 2 Duo E4300(L2) ).
The other two issues addressed between your current version and 2.50 are usb and quite fan.
Unless you're upgrading to that exact
cpu or are having usb\quite fan issues, there's really no need.
