    12.04 won't shut down updating the BIOS?

    With the release of 14.04.1 just around the corner, I ask if I need to upgrade my BIOS from 2009. My 12.04 has never been able to power down the computer. The most recent BIOS from the motherboard's maker is 2011. I don't expect anyone to know much about BIOSs. I see reports at Sourceforge and other places that this is pretty common with older BIOSs. Anybody know what to do? FYI - this is not a UEFI BIOS.
    AMD Athlon II X4 620, 4gig ddr2-800, m/b MSI K9N6PGM2, 1T SATA, EVGA 9500GT, Brother MFC-240C prntr, LG DVD-rom GSA-H55N

    The latest BIOS in the manufacturer's website is from 2009: http://www.msi.com/support/mb/K9N6PGM2V.html#down-bios
