How do I update the BIOS of a Dell laptop?

I need to upgrade my bios to eliminate some issue i'm haveing with my system. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 on my Asus g75vw ( No Duel Boot ) after a clean install.

I have downloaded bios version 222 to replace the existing 210 that it is currently using. My question is how do I go about doing this?

I am very new to linux (3 days) and could really use some help.

Thank you

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

'some issue'. And this issue can not be solved? – Rinzwind Jan 13 '13 at 1:09
As shown by @blvbeer this is the topic to follow and esp. Bobble's answer:… It is a general answer not specifically for DELL and works for other brands too. – Rinzwind Jan 13 '13 at 1:14

Usualy you don't do this with linux, because the most flash-tools just run on Windows (as far as i know). You should get the tools at the asus website. They mustly also run under some dos-like live-systems.

There was a similar question about upgrading the BIOS on dell laptop, take a look at it here. The procedure described there (especially the answer by Bobble) could come in handy – blvdeer Jan 13 '13 at 0:08
