    You did not mention why do you need to update the BIOS.

    Put the BIOS file on a usbflash-drive, reboot the pc and hold tap the delete key (or numpad decimal) to get into BIOS.

    No I haven't heard of it, the only game I play on steam works great most of the time.
    What is the problem with steam?

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket AM3+ - GA-990FXA-UD7 (rev. 1.x)

    can i use this BIOS update with my motherboard that I mentioned at the top. i'm thinking that'd be unwise

    Absolutely not, nor the Q-Flash will let you do it, but better not even try.

    alright i didn't think so. thats what their support forum sent me to. i updated with my own motherboards BIOS. still no solution. i guess maybe it's just something that needs looked into. wondering why it won't work. oh yeah and my motherboards most recent BIOS update is august of 2011. Most motherboards are alot more recent than that. I don't know how much you guys know on this forum and what not but is there any plan on this being updated anytime soon.
