I am trying to flash the bios of my ASUS A8N-SLI Premium motherboard.  Asus's website states that you can use their built-in bios refresher by simply holding down certain keys during POST.

Which keys do I hold down.  Their instructions say "When the system is at POST after reboot please hold down + to view the following image".

Now, I held down the "PLUS" key on my keyboard and nothing happened.  It does not make sense that this would be the only key.  Does anyone know the key combination to use this utility?
