The most reliable place to find a free BIOS update for your mainboard is the mainboard maker's web site; if no update there then there is probably no free BIOS update available. You need to know your mainboard maker, mainboard model and sometimes mainboard version. If you need to figure out what you have just follow the motherboard ID article at:

If you already tried your mainboard maker there probably isn't a BIOS update solution for your mainboard (wouldn't be surprising for an older mainboard). In that case just get an ATA/66 expansion card; it will support HDDs up to about 128GB. You won't get much better performance until sustained data transfer rate of IDE HDDs significantly exceeds 66 MB/sec.

Good Luck,
