If your system has hardware issues then maybe, flash your BIOS. If it ain't broken don't fix it. You could end up with a dead motherboard.
If you are going to do it, ensure that you you have the correct one for your mobo.

BIOS updates normally address very specific problems, or upgraded facilities (eg support for larger drives).

Unless you have a specific issue that is fixed by a BIOS upgrade, you should stay away from them. As noted earlier, one slip, and you will have an unuseable motherboard.
