your bios being out of date is not really important.
if the pc is working just fine then the bios is ok and i do not advise a update bios unless you have problems

with that said the last bios for that board is dated 22/11/2005 on ecs site.
if thats the version your running then you are up to date.

everest is saying you have version 1 of that motherboard so this is the correct page at ecs to get what your looking for.

please keep in mind that you flash the bios at your own risk, if it goes wrong you could end up with a dead motherboard.

Thanks Dave for your reply.

My PC has started crashing (It just shuts off and corrupts the OS) quite frequently in recent days and I am getting a Windows 7 solution recommendation that I should update my BIOS.

Is there any way to find out if the PC is crashing due to BIOS or something else? I have got all hardware checked and seems normal.

Thanks.

if the pc was stable under windows xp and even vista it should be stable under windows 7

the problem is windows 7 is still new and its effects on older bios are still unclear.
when windows xp first came out it did indeed have problems with the older bios ACPI power controls.
windows 7 maybe the same way.

however with that said i would check the following as well.
that via chipset the p4m800 was not the best one they done, it was never that stable , i would check via for possible updates to the out the box stuff from microsoft.

reset your bios back to its full defaults that will reset all IRQ back to full auto and allow windows to access what it wants.
if your using the onboard GFX i would think about a cheap upgrade.
that board has a older AGP port and those cards are very cheap on ebay now even for a nvidia 6600GT which is pretty good all be it limited by todays standards.
