The P4R8T uses an ATI Chipset. Latest version available is V7.95. The download from Asus is a two-parter with instructions, seperated by OS category. Whenever you update your chipset drivers, shutdown all
running apps first.
Latest bios version is 1006 Beta. I would not install a beta version of the bios. Use version 1005 instead.
There are multiple methods used to update the bios. The traditional method is to create a boot floppy and add the bios file to it. You can also update it via windows. Either way, create a backup of the old version.
Methods of updating your bios and backing up the old version are in the manual (section 5).
All is available for download here.
Before you update anything however, check your bios setup for any existing hyperthreading options. Typicly in the advanced section submenus. And last but not least, take a look at the cpu's with HT supported by that board here.
If your cpu is not in the list with the "HT" designation, don't bother with any of this.
