I have an older AMD Athlon 1 gig processor and I can't play a game because my cpu doesn't have SSE. Now is there any bios updates available that could enable SSE for me?

thnx

Nope, you would need a new processor that supports SSE
If you motherboard supports;
133(266) FSB: AMD Duron 1.8 266MHz FSB Socket A Processor
166(333) FSB: AMD Sempron 2400+ 333MHz FSB Socket A Processor
Also you might want a whole new system, and BTW if you get one them CPU's you'll need a new CPU fan.

Here you have an explaination about SSE. It is a part of the instruction from CPU, so you can not simply update BIOS to enable SSE.
