What Is BIOS? How to update the BIOS?
Your computer’s BIOS is the first thing that loads when you start your computer. The computers boots the BIOS, which configures your hardware before handing off to a boot device (usually your hard drive). The BIOS system is also responsible for managing data flow between your computer’s operating system and any attached devices including a hard drive, keyboard, video adapter, printer, or mouse. It ensures the operating system is correctly loaded onto the memory, making it a crucial to the effective running of your device. If BIOS detects any problems, an error screen will appear or a series of beep codes will sound, effectively indicating to you that something has gone wrong. Updating your BIOS might be necessary to support the latest processors, while it can also help boost performance and troubleshoot problems. However, upgrading the BIOS can cause a computer to stop working if something goes wrong.
Since BIOS updates don’t usually introduce new features or huge speed boosts, you probably won’t see a huge benefit anyway. Unless the latest BIOS comes with security patches, support for new hardware you plan to use, or fixes a bug that’s been plaguing your daily usage, you’re best off leaving it alone altogether.
