It sounds like your PC thinks the update didn't complete for some strange reason. I would try reinstalling the BIOS update and see what happens.

can you get your hands on the original bios...? Try flashing it from scratch, although dangerous.

Your computer seems pretty hungry for a nice helping of Basic Input Output System. I would try to boot into safe mode or something if you can. Just give it a try that or load up a bootable CD and boot into windows via it.

See if you can get into the BIOS and see if there are any changes in there you can make...?
