Updating the bios file
For this reason, it's worth checking whether you really need to update your BIOS.
Read the release notes of the latest version (and each version back to the one currently installed) to see whether it will add the features you need or fix a problem you're having.
It’s a myth that BIOS updates somehow make your computer faster or run better.
In some rare instances, a BIOS update can fix a motherboard issue that might make your computer perform better, but it’s usually not related to speed.
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.
Here's everything you need to know about how to update a PC BIOS, whether traditional or the newer UEFI standard.
If you specifically need this new hardware, then it’s probably worth taking the risk to install it.
If not, then you should simply stick with your current BIOS because the new BIOS won’t make any difference and could actually cause more problems.
Also, many BIOS updates are released that simply support new hardware like a new CPU model or graphics card.
If not, there may be little point in taking the risk by updating.
