    A BIOS update is a very precarious procedure, not for the faint hearted because if it goes wrong, very bad things happen.
    This would be a last resort IMO.

    BIOS update is also not for those with little knowledge and is something even guys in the know are reluctant to perform.
    I just did one because I had no choice.

    When you get BSOD what error code do you get?
    As for programs, have you tried reinstalling them?

    What did you do just before this started happening? (eg:install software/hardware etc)
