thanks guys, but there is no one update for this motherboard - P5E3 , there are two uptates i find for sata

should i download both of them ?  and how do i update it ? i have never done motherboard updates before .

Hi, I would suggest that you download the manual for your mobo as well, but here is a brief description of the BIOS update procedure:

The mobo has a flash utility called EZ-flash.  Download the latest BIOS version for you motherboard, triple checking model number, BIOS version, etc.

Unzip the file on a USB drive, and plug it in.  During boot, press Alt+F2, that should bring you direct in to the EZ-flash utility.  If the USB drive is available, select it by pressing TAB.

I'm guessing the utility will go through a number of checks, once everything is confirmed, the update will start.  Wait patiently for the successful end and make sure not to interrupt it.

Good luck,
