Updating the BIOS via Windows or DOS
Usually a BIOS update program includes installation instructions. For Dell, HP laptops, etc. It’s just an install exe file that can be run like any of their driver files, and takes care of the rest.
The update installation file is usually placed in a ZIP archive along with instructions. Remove it and read the instructions carefully. While updating, turn off all unnecessary programs and plug your laptop or computer into a reliable power source. A power failure or surge will cause your computer to stop working.
The advantage of updating the BIOS through Windows is an automatic check that you can not install software that is not compatible with your hardware. If you run the update developed for the DELL computer under HP, the program shows a warning and closes down. In the case of the DOS program, you will also have to study the instructions and update commands.
