Hi there,

you can download BIOS from here: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3833#bios

You can find the BIOS version either on screen ( it follows your motherboard model number, ie GA-78LMT-S2P F2 with the F2 indicating BIOS version) when you do a cold BOOT or, if you go into BIOS press the F9 key which should bring up the details.

Depending on which BIOS version you are currently running you may have to use the latest version of @BIOS to actually update. You can download @BIOS from here: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3833#utility.

If your current BIOS version is F3 or F4 then you can use the QFlash utility to update the BIOS. For details on using QFlash check the FAQ here: http://forum.giga-byte.co.uk/index.php/topic,2441.0.html
