What is your motherboard model # ? You will also need to know your BIOS string #IDmotherboards.org

If you are unsure how to flash a BIOS it is best not to do it. You might end up with a paperweight. I have one sitting on my desk right now. Depending on your motherboard it is possible to replace the BIOS chip. I've used biosman.com a few times with excellent results. It only cost $25
