    I've done this before with a program someone on here alerted me to. I just upgraded to Win 7 when my previos hard drive died and I lost everything. I was told that I would need to flash the BIOS so that my computer would recognize my CPU and graphics card so that I can get the most out of both.

    I can't remember how to do this. I have a Biostar A740G M2+ for AMD.

    Whoever told you that misled you badly. BIOS flashes are to correct specific problems, so if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it.
    BIOS flashing is often specific to the motherboard maker, so look on the Biostar site for this info.
