Updating bios administrator
You should see a list of available BIOS versions, along with any changes/bug fixes in each and the dates they were released. You’ll probably want to grab the newest BIOS version—unless you have a specific need for an older one.If you purchased a pre-built computer instead of building your own, head to the computer manufacturer’s website, look up the computer model, and look at its downloads page. Your BIOS download probably comes in an archive—usually a ZIP file. Inside, you’ll find some sort of BIOS file—in the screenshot below, it’s the E7887IMS.140 file.RELATED: You’ll need to choose one of several different types of BIOS-flashing tools, depending on your motherboard and what it supports.The BIOS update’s included README file should recommend the ideal option for your hardware.Some manufacturers provide Windows-based flashing tools, which you run on the Windows desktop to flash your BIOS and then reboot.We don’t recommend using these, and even many manufacturers who provide these tools caution against using them.The archive should also contain a README file that will walk you through updating to the new BIOS.You should check out this file for instructions that apply specifically to your hardware, but we’ll try to cover the basics that work across all hardware here.
A second option usually called Boot Up Password or something similar has to be enabled in order for you to see a message before the operating system loads.
The DOS-based flashing tool is often provided in the BIOS archive you download from the manufacturer’s website, although you may have to download it separately. In the past, this process was performed with bootable floppy disks and CDs.
We recommend a USB drive because it’s probably be the easiest method on modern hardware.
However, you’ll perform the same basic process on all motherboards.
