Updating intel bios
You should see a list of available BIOS versions, along with any changes/bug fixes in each and the dates they were released. You’ll probably want to grab the newest BIOS version—unless you have a specific need for an older one.
If you purchased a pre-built computer instead of building your own, head to the computer manufacturer’s website, look up the computer model, and look at its downloads page. Your BIOS download probably comes in an archive—usually a ZIP file. Inside, you’ll find some sort of BIOS file—in the screenshot below, it’s the E7887IMS.140 file.
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.
To check your BIOS version from the Command Prompt, hit Start, type “cmd” in the search box, and then click the “Command Prompt” result—no need to run it as an administrator.
At the prompt, type (or copy and paste) the following command, and then hit Enter: You can also find your BIOS’s version number in the System Information window.
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.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.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.
