    Try this link it will tell you everything you need to know. I didn't know anything about doing this either but a little bit of web research using google helped me out. Updated my motherboard and videocard bios successfully just 2 days ago

    thats the way to do it* I wanted to answer but wasn't sure myself.... Its so much easier to do a google search with "exact" words on what your looking for and 75% of the time you can find an answer of some sort. nice find*
