First tell us what the problem is as a very much doubt it is the BIOS.

It is extremely rare for a BIOS in a computer to go wrong unless the user has done something to help it, like try and flash it with the wrong code.

To upload the BIOS to the motherboard, you must first have a BIOS that is working.

It IS best to avoid 'flashing' your BIOS, unless you can confirm that this is actually needed. I have only needed to do it once in the last 15 years (probably back in 1995 or 1996) and spent hours making sure I knew the proper procedure and making sure I had the correct file, the process took less than one minute from a floppy disk (I am not sure how you would do it without a floppy drive). Remember, a bad flash might mean replacing your motherboard (even a power 'brown out' during a flash with the correct file and correct procedure can leave you with a pile of junk).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

I have done it twice in a similar time period. Once to correct a fan problem in a Dell Laptop and once to correct a video problem that only effected Nvidia video cards running under Windows XP when XP was first released.

On both occasion the computer was running fine except in certain well defined circumstances. As stated, so many many times, BIOS updates are only ever released to correct certain well defined problems. They are not updated as a matter of routine.
