Flashing ASUS P3B-F BIOS

I am trying to upgrade to the new ASUS P3BF bios version, since the old one keeps reporting wrong CPU temprature, and keeps messing up my programs because of it... i wanted to know if anyone could tell me how to do it.. do I have to change any jumpers? I was reading some articles on the ASUS site, but they were confusing. please help if you know what you are doing. i have never flashed a bios before... thanks...

What articles were you looking at? ASUS have thier own flash utility for their bios upgrades and usage instructions are here....
http://www.asus.com/Products/Motherboard/flash.html

Referring to revision 1.10 of the manual for PCB 1.00 I see there appears to be no jumpers needing setting for flashing the BIOS. However, the instructions for flashing the bios state "Upon first use of the computer..." which means the CMOS settings need to be clear before flashing, so go through setup and note down all your settings, make the bios disk first in DOS, then remove the motherboard battery (that silver thing the size of a nickel) for 1/2 an hour, then put it back in and boot the bios flash setup disk that you made according to the instructions at the top of the page above.

Follow the instuctions given in the page above and on screen, IT IS A VERY GOOD IDEA TO SAVE YOUR OLD BIOS, just in case the new one works worse

If you still have problems/questions, please be specific.

The Aflash utility and the bios file seem easy to find on the site, if you need pointers though, just ask.
