?upgrade for vaio pcg 717 phoenix bios r0135s0?

I am trying desperately to find any kind of update for my bios because it's troubling me.

ASUS P2V rev.1.12 - BIOS Update problem :(


I have problem with ASUS P2V. Every flashing program displays BIOS Chip: UNKNOW or something like that. Only one version of AFLASH and UniFlash displays BIOS chip: Flash Protected or something like that. Problem is that, that there isn't any jumpers to disable this protection. There isn't any BIOS settings to disable this protection too. How I can flash this chip (SST39SF020)???

Sorry for my english.
