BIOS is a term we have heard from quite sometimes, in fact, it’s possible that for most of your hardware issues the IT guy may have suggested a BIOS upgrade before troubleshooting the hardware. BIOS is an acronym for (Basic Input Output System) and is a piece of software that goes along with the PC’s motherboard.

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.

One can also run a command in CMD to check the BIOS version.

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.

Alternatively, you can directly download the BIOS from the Lenovo support site and install the same manually.

Occasionally, a computer will need to have its BIOS updated. As new devices and standards arise, the BIOS needs to change in order to understand the new hardware.

Since the BIOS is stored in some form of ROM, changing it is a bit harder than upgrading most other types of software.

Sometimes the utility and update are combined in a single file to download.

Copy the program, along with the BIOS update, onto a floppy disk.

To change the BIOS itself, you'll probably need a special program from the computer or BIOS manufacturer.
