SPECS OF PC or laptop?????

Work the problem, not ADD to it. If your USB ports suddenly stopped working, why would a BIOS update fix that? If the BIOS was fine before, why would it cause USB ports to stop working now? That doesn't happen - if a BIOS stopped working or became corrupt, nothing would work and the PC wouldn't even boot. You need to troubleshoot the problem - that being USB:

Try going into Windows Safe Mode 1st to see if USB works.

Just another stupid saying...

Yeah, you can make a hard drive bootable with dos system files and then do a bios upgrade. But to make it bootable you normally need a working floppy drive to start off with--which you don't have. And as already mentioned, it's unlikely a bios upgrade will fix your USB ports.
