You probably shouldn’t update your BIOS, but sometimes you need to.

RELATED: First, head to the motherboard manufacturer’s website and find the Downloads or Support page for your specific model of motherboard.

The archive should also contain a README file that will walk you through updating to the new BIOS.

You should check out this file for instructions that apply specifically to your hardware, but we’ll try to cover the basics that work across all hardware here.

On most modern BIOS systems, you can set a supervisor password, which simply restricts access to the BIOS utility itself, but allows Windows to load.

A second option usually called Boot Up Password or something similar has to be enabled in order for you to see a message before the operating system loads.
