Evening. there are two ways bios can be flashed that vary from computer to computer. the first way to upgrade bios is from within windows. If the file is executable (*.exe) follow your computers documention.

second is you put the file on a dvd, cd, usb drive and reboot from the media. what kind of comuter do you have?

With Asus can't you use 'EZ Flash 2' with a USB. I have a Asus P5Q Deluxe and use EZ Flash. Read your manual!
