Updating bios new computer
The flash completed successfully, and the system restarted itself. She told me that updating the BIOS was not advised by Acer, and that I was responsible for the computer breaking.
I asked to speak to a tier 2 tech, and she REFUSED to let me.
Short for Basic Input/Output System, the BIOS (pronounced bye-oss) is a ROM chip found on motherboards that allows you to access and set up your computer system at the most basic level.
In the picture below, is an example of what a BIOS chip may look like on your computer motherboard.
The updates usually bake in enhancements and fixes which will eventually help the software maintain its compatibility with the hardware and the software.
That being said unlike most of the other apps the BIOS needs to be updated manually, and that’s precisely the very thing that we will be explaining in this segment.
Hey there everyone, so I have had this Windows 8 asus computer for about a year now, never had any big problems with it, I was on steam, I started dark souls, it started normally, then all of a sudden, the screen turned tealish and the speakers were making a screeching noise.
The computer crashed Now when it starts, displays the asus screen (where you can press f8 to go to bios) when I don't press f8, it brings me to the bios screen anyways, it will not start Windows up at all.
In any case, should you wish to, we recommend that you do not try to update your BIOS yourself, but instead take it to a computer technician who may be better equipped to do it. Once the System Information Tool opens, you can check the BIOS version.
Updating BIOS isn't something you do manually, not completely anyway.
