    Get the link to your manufacturer's support site from my system optimization guide (on front page of TT), then follow the instructions there. It differs depending on mobo brand and chipset.

    Usually you need to boot into DOS mode and run the .exe file that comes with the floppy, then enter the name of the file you want to flash (usually a .bin file).

    HOWEVER make 100% sure you follow your manufacturer's instructions. A bad BIOS flash renders your board useless.

    FLaCo,
    Read the post directly above your last one. It is rather important. Each motherboard manufacturer usually puts out their own Flash updating utility. Get this and follow the manufacturer's directions EXACTLY or you may have yourself a fancy new paperweight.
