What does updating the bios do
As as computer user, you’ve probably heard of the BIOS by now, which stands for Basic Input/Output System.
It’s that blue DOS-like screen that pops up if you press F8 or F2 while the computer is starting. It’s code that is stored on a chip attached to your motherboard and is the first code that is run when your computer starts.
The main purpose of the BIOS is to check all the hardware components attached to the computer and then to load the software on a boot device (hard disk or CD/DVD). The BIOS will check for all hardware components like hard disk drives, CPUs, RAM, graphics cards, keyboards, mice, optical disk drives, and other hardware. Mainly, you can use it to configure the hardware on your computer.
You can modify settings for hard drives, RAM chips, the CPU and other hardware.
BIOSes are computer-specific (or motherboard-specific), so you will need the BIOS for your exact model of computer (or motherboard) to update your computer’s BIOS.
Probably not, but in this article I’ll walk you through the process of determining whether or not there is an update for your BIOS or UEFI firmware and whether or not you need to install it.
I think now it is diffrenent and there is actually a Flashback option with newer Asus Motherboards. I am wandering would it benefit me at all to update the BIOS.
Updating your operating system and software is important.
Feel free to let us know what you think in the comments.Occasionally, a computer will need to have its BIOS updated. As new devices and standards arise, the BIOS needs to change in order to understand the new hardware.Since the BIOS is stored in some form of ROM, changing it is a bit harder than upgrading most other types of software.Sometimes the utility and update are combined in a single file to download.Copy the program, along with the BIOS update, onto a floppy disk.
