POST BEEP DISABLING AND BIOS UPGRADING

I want to disable the post check beep at the boot up of the computer. I know that the simple  way is to unplug the pc speaker but i want to do so. I want to know whether there is an option in bios (i know that there is) that disables it without having to unplug the speaker. What is that option called like give me a general term or menu that i can find in the bios of my computer. Moreover, i don't think it is available in my bios so do i need to upgrade bios? which arises a second question that what is the simplest way to upgrade a bios and make sure that it is properly done or pc won't boot up. Please avoid giving me links to info as i can do it myself but i want to know in simple sentences or even complicated sentences as long as it is here. Please give me the links only when you think that download a certain software might be a good idea.

Hi all. Ok thanks
The reason that i want to disable it is that it annoys me on boot up specially when I hae to restart my pc. Actually I like to play around with my computer so i am always loading  and unloading softwares and formatting the drives as well as trying to create various live cds etc. for which i have to restart my computer very often. Unplugging the speaker was a choice for me but i didn't know that it wasn't possible by bios to do so. So, thanks for the info you have secured your points but the major points are still left for the bios upgrading until i conclude this question and split among you.
once again thanks for the info
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

LOL I must have been typing my answer to you at the same time as r2r, sorry, I didnt mean to repeat what was already said.

As for the BIOS, if you wish to update it you can. If you go to this site it will display the latest update for your Motherboard:

http://www.wimsbios.com/HTML1/bios.html

Alternatly you can go to your motherboard manufactors site.

You must be careful when you update your BOIS though, it is pretty straight forward now. Normally putting the update onto a floppy or disk and updating from the BIOS itself, or even updating from Windows itself. The problem is that if there is a power failure or problem during the installation you can currupt your CMOS which will make you PC unusable and you will have to replace it.

Normally this isnt a problem and I have updated many BOIS without any dramas.

Regards.
