Updating bios administrator
It’s better to be safe than sorry, so we recommend using a BIOS-based flashing tool or booting to a minimal DOS environment to flash your BIOS.That’s it—after you run the BIOS-flashing utility, reboot your computer and the new BIOS or UEFI firmware version 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.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.All that software running in the background—including security programs that may interfere with writing to the computer’s BIOS—can cause the process to fail and corrupt your BIOS.Any system crashes or freezes might also result in a corrupted BIOS.
In the minimal DOS environment that appears after the reboot, you run the appropriate command—often something like BIOS3245.bin—and the tool flashes the new version of the BIOS onto the firmware.This will render your computer unbootable—it’ll be “bricked.” Your computer’s BIOS version is displayed in the BIOS setup menu itself, but you don’t have to reboot to check this version number.
