Question about Computers & Internet
Correction the bios update is for the Mainboard or motherboard for a PC. It not for the "memory"? To update your Bios you have to to know the precisely the model/brand of your mainboard before you can download the new bios file needed for the update from the manufacturer site.
There are precautions you need to heed before doing a bios update for the mainboard. In case of any eventualities or mistakes you made may render the mainboard useless!! If you are not 100% sure how to do it, get some professional help.
If you Mainboard is running ie with no errors!, it is advisable not to do the bios update unless recommended by the OEM manufacturer or you need to run a new function from the mainboard which is not included in the old bios.
Hope this helps.
