Trouble with Flashing BIOS

Last response: in Motherboards

Hey guys, for those who may or may not know - I've been trying to get my old Dell Dimension working for months now - And I finally got it up and loaded today!

The BIOS for this machine is A10 and the latest from DELL is A12 - The BIOS Flash is an EXE so don't you just run in it from the desktop?

When I do this, it says Flash Access Denied - Please try logging on as an Administrator and restart the app. Problem is..I am an Administrator - The only admin on the computer.

If I'm supposed to boot with it, how do I do that.

Please help guys :3

most dell bios make a floppy disk that you boot from. look at the bios notes on dell web page to see if this bios is one of them.
