Updating an old computer

Rated 3.87/5 based on 670 customer reviews

BIOS flashing tools usually try to detect whether the BIOS fits your hardware, but if the tool attempts to flash the BIOS anyway, your computer could become unbootable.

If your computer loses power while flashing the BIOS, your computer could become “bricked” and unable to boot.

Flashing a BIOS isn’t as easy as installing a normal software update.You won’t get anything out of it except possible new problems. The simple beauty of building a PC is having a constant gaming platform.Computers are now coming with UEFI firmware instead of the traditional BIOS, but the same is true for UEFI – it’s low-level system software with a similar role.Unlike your operating system (which is stored on your hard drive), your computer’s BIOS is stored on a chip on your motherboard.
