automatic bios update checker

Is there any software that can automatically check my bios version, and let me know if there are any updates? Thanks.

There are a variety of system inventory progs like sisoft Sandra and PC Wizard that'll identify the version currently installed, but I'm not aware of any automatic software that can check for updates.
What exactly are you looking to do, rule of thumb with BIOS is if it ain't busted don't fix it, largely as if the update goes pear shaped you can end up with a singularly non responsive PC. Usually only applied for very specific requirements where the BIOS upgrade has increased the range of componants, ie CPU or RAM that can be applied to the MOBO.
