Install Bios Software On A Computer

Download the appropriate BIOS on the Internet.

BIOS is an acronym for the Basic Input/Output System on a computer. The BIOS contains the computer's basic control functions. It regulates how the computer starts up and boots. The BIOS is loaded into a computer's memory when the unit turns on. It can become corrupted due to malicious programming or user error, rendering a computer unusable. If this occurs, you will need to install the BIOS on your computer again.


1. Get on the Internet with another computer and download the BIOS file from the website of your own computer's manufacturer. Save the file.

2. Open the BIOS file you have downloaded. You will be prompted to extract the BIOS files you need. Extract the files and save them to the same place you saved the BIOS download. Write down the name of the .BIO file you have extracted.

3. Insert your flash drive into the USB port. Copy both the BIOS file (.BIO) and the extracted files (IFLASH.exe).

4. Remove the flash drive and insert it into your computer before you turn it on. Boot your computer and press F2 during the boot. This will take you to the boot menu. Click on "Enable USB boot" using the arrow keys, then press the "Enter" key. Press F10 when you are finished.

5. Boot your computer with the flash drive when asked. In the dialog prompt box, type "iflash/pf" followed by the name of the .BIO file that you wrote down. Follow this with ".BIO" without any quotations. Your computer will install the BIOS and associated files. When the installation has finished, restart the computer.
