Windows 7: BIOS Update in Windows 7

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, 64-bit

Exactly why do you need to flash the BIOS? It can be done, but the standard advice is to NOT do it unless you have an over-riding reason to believe it will solve your issues.

BIOS flashing is not part of normal maintenance like maintaining antivirus, defragging, etc.
