    You can go to your motherboard manufacturer's site and see if they offer a utility to update the BIOS in Windows.

    Personally, I still prefer the floppy method.

    MSI has a utility to flash it VIA Windows. Just be sure that your computer is stable, last thing you want is for WINDOWS to crash inthe middle of a BIOS flash.


    I've done it several tims when I had my MSI mobo, always worked great. Very easy.....

    It's an MSI utility called "Live Update3"

    The link will take you the the MSI web-site. Try this
