    I'm building a new pc myself for the first time. I've run into a problem and a solution i found was to flash my BIOS because it was too old for my new ivy bridge processor. My monitor doesn't get a signal so i can't actually do anything on it. What is the best way to flash my BIOS?
    Put in an older processor so i can boot it up and then flash it or....?

    Thanks in advance.

    My motherboard is an ASRock P67 Extreme4 Gen3 and my processor is an i5 3570k.

    If you have a processor that works in that board with both the old and the new BIOS, that is the safer solution.
