[flashrom] Intel MBD question

I have recently built a new Computer with an Intel DG41WV MBD. This has 
an 82G41 BIOS chip and a GMA X4500 video chip. My Operating System is 
Linux Mint 10 KDE.

I have problems with the screen display not refreshing correctly leaving 
part of the old screen still showing. Forcing a refresh by moving the 
window off screen and back again cures this.

Therefore I am wanting to update the BIOS to see if this will correct 
the problem. From recommendations on the Ubuntu Form it has been 
recommended that I use Flashrom to do this. However I can find no 
reference to either this Intel MBD or the Chipsets on your site.

Can you please advise me on whether these are supported with Flashrom 
and if necessary recommend the correct method to do this.

Thanks a lot.
