Try right clicking on it and selecting Run as Administrator, see if that helps.

Otherwise, fill out your System Specs in User CP and provide a link to where you downloaded the BIOS update from.

Some motherboards now lock the bios so it can not be flashed. To check this, go to the Motherboard web site, or reboot and open the bios menu and see if there is a setting to lock or unlock, or otherwise protect the bios.

Cheers!

Ok, what type of motherboard (or type of pc) is it?
And have you checked physical connections inside your pc? The optical drive connections could be loose.

If you feel uncomfortable with that, take it to a pc repair place.

either, but I believe a loose connection is more probable.

But...given you inability to flash the bios, the mobo could be bad.

How old is it? Under a year, then perhaps under warranty

If it was a mobo problem it would never display optical drive right?
