Flash bios to remedy bsod?

  Dalglish2 21:39 10 Oct 2010


I've had my windows xp desktop repaired (sp3) and is now giving a Bsod especially when my iPhone is synced to iTunes. I believe a USB 2.0 upgrade was done when.
My question is should I flash my bios which seems from Internet posts to be a remedy for this bsod? If so, how do I do this safely?
Many thanks

BIOS flash is always last resort as a failed flash turns the machine into a door stop.

What error message on BSOD?

This Stop error indicates that requested data was not in memory.
The system generates an exception error when using a reference to an invalid system memory address.

Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM)
