The BIOS is not AMD/CPU related...it is a motherboard component.

What is the make/model of your motherboard? Can you post the BIOS ID string as shown on your monitor as the PC boots up?

You can download a utility that can read this information.

Check any of the BIOS update/upgrade sites to get one.
