Identifying your motherboard model number and BIOS version are the key things in determining your BIOS flash needs. When you first get a POSTing on your screen, you will see a set of numbers and BIOS date in the left hand corner. Identify your BIOS version and date, and write them down on a piece of paper. Make sure you check yourself twice, as this is a very important thing. The wrong BIOS flash can result in a dead motherboard. Sometimes the screen does go by pretty quickly, so you might have to restart it a couple of times to get it right. Take your time and get the exact details needed to ensure a successful mission.
