You can update Bios in Many ways, one thing is after updating bios, your may face some minute problems like getting strucked, slow performance..etc beacuse I faced these problems after updating my ASUS K8V-MX motherboard, well I did got some other problems like capacitors failure after I came to know that this problems came into existence because of failure of BIOS. But I am not sure about the problem caused beacause of updating BIOS.

http://www.gigabyte.in/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3894#bios in this link you might be choosing 32bit operating system, downloading the exe file but check which operating system selected by you and download the exe file and follow the on screen instructions. If same problem persists there might other ways to update BIOS.
