Updating bios benefit

Dell recommends updating the BIOS as part of your scheduled update cycle.

This process can be executed if you have a USB memory stick formatted to the FAT32 file system and the BIOS executable file that you downloaded from the Dell Support Website and copied to the root of the USB key For more information on this process, please see the following article: Caution: If Bit Locker is not suspended before updating the BIOS, the next time you reboot the system it will not recognize the Bit Locker key.

You will then be prompted to enter the recovery key to progress and the system will ask for this on each reboot.

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.

For example, a BIOS update may help solve an overheating issue.

The BIOS chip is often referred to as the ROM BIOS because, in its traditional form, it was a read-only memory chip with contents that could not be changed.

Later versions could be reprogrammed with an EPROM programmer, and, beginning in the mid-1990s, BIOSes using flash memory (flash BIOS) began to appear.
