Start Updating bios without a floppy

Updating bios without a floppy

Your computer's BIOS - Basic Input/Output System - is a chip on the motherboard which contains enough information to allow it to start up before the main operating system begins to load.

Sometimes this will be done automatically as part of the updating process, but if it requires you to do it manually, be sure not to skip this step.

The easiest way is to look in the user manual of your mainboard.

In most cases, nothing will go wrong at all, but it's important to know that there's an associated risk and not to treat the process too lightly.

Similarly, creating a backup of your BIOS is also a good idea.

Additionally, the full model name –such as P5E3 Deluxe – is usually found somewhere on the board itself.

It’s important to get the full name as there are ususally subtly different versions.

Head to the motherboard or laptop manufacturer's website and look for a support link.
