Updating motherboard

From there, you choose the BIOS-updating option, select the BIOS file you placed on the USB drive, and the BIOS updates to the new version.

RELATED: You generally access the BIOS screen by pressing the appropriate key while your computer boots—it’s often displayed on the screen during the boot process and will be noted in your motherboard or PC’s manual. The process for entering a UEFI setup screen can be a bit different.

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.

However, you’ll perform the same basic process on all motherboards.

RELATED: First, head to the motherboard manufacturer’s website and find the Downloads or Support page for your specific model of motherboard.

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.

You probably shouldn’t update your BIOS, but sometimes you need to.

Here’s how to check what BIOS version your computer is using and flash that new BIOS version onto your motherboard as quickly and safely as possible. If your computer freezes, crashes, or loses power during the process, the BIOS or UEFI firmware may be corrupted.
