    You can get the files off abits website. The BIOS update procedure differs from motherboard to motherboard, however the standard way of doing things is to copy the files you downloaded from your mobo's manurfacturers website onto a floppy and then boot from the flopping and follow the onscreen instructions. However if you get incorrect BIOS for your mobo, then you might screw the whole board up.

    If you're still unsure then get a computer retailer or someone who knows about this kind of thing to do it for you
