Maybe it is up to date. Why do you think that you need to do this? This procedure is less risky than it used to be but can still result in an unbootable puter.

What version of BIOS is on the mobo now?

And why do you need to update the BIOS?

according to asus update utility it has version 1006, i am trying to update it because its not recognising my amd x2 3800, i've tried 1008, 1013 and 1014.

download the bios update to your hard drive or onto a floppy disk. then run the bios update software utility.

i always update the bios from the cmos area (bios update must be on a floppy for this method)rather than using the windows utility but both are o.k. (manual should give instructions on both).
