You need to know your mainboard maker (appears to be Shuttle), mainboard Model and (usually) hardware revision (usually etched or printed on the mainboard). If you can confirm Shuttle as the mainboard maker you should look for a BIOS update at the Shuttle web site:

Be sure to read the BIOS release notes (to see if the update will solve your problem - if not, don't bother with the update) and follow the mainboard makers update instructions ONLY IF the update will solve your problem.

Good Hunting,
