How to update (reflash) BIOS on a laptop

BIOS is an inconspicuous thing (when your laptop works normally), but with problems with it it can take a lot of time! In general, BIOS needs to be updated only in extreme cases, when it really needs it (for example, in order for BIOS to start supporting new equipment), and not just because a new version of the microprogram appears.

BIOS updating is not complicated, but requires accuracy and attentiveness. If something is wrong, the laptop will have to be carried to the service center. In this article, I want to dwell on the main aspects of the update process and all typical issues of users who are faced with this for the first time (especially since my previous article is more focused on PC and somewhat outdated: https: // PCPRO100.info/kak.obnovit-bios/).

By the way, BIOS updating may cause warranty service for equipment service. In addition, with this procedure (if you are mistaken), you can bring a laptop to a breakdown, which can only be fixed in the service center. Everything that is described in the article further. do at your own peril and risk.

Important notes when updating BIOS:

On the example of the Dell Inspiron 15R 5537 laptop

The whole process, it seems to me, is convenient to consider, describing each step, conducting screenshots with explanations, etc.

Download the new version of BIOS

You need to download the new version of the BIOS from the official website (it is not subject to discussion :)). In my case: on the website https: // www.Dell.com through the search I found drivers and updates for my laptop. The BIOS update file is a regular EXE file (which is always used to install ordinary programs) and weighed approximately 12 MB (see. rice. one).

By the way, BIOS updating files do not appear every week. The release of a new firmware is half a year-a year (or even less often), this is a common phenomenon. Therefore, do not be surprised if the firmware will be a rather old date for your “new” laptop.

How to find out which version of BIOS on your laptop?

Suppose you see a new version of the firmware on the manufacturer’s website, and it is recommended for installation. But you do not know what version you have at present. Find out the BIOS version is very simple.

Go to the Start menu (for Windows 7), or click the combination of Winr buttons (for Windows 8, 10). Enter the MSINFO32 command in the line and click Enter.

A window with the parameters of your computer should appear, in which the BIOS version will be indicated.

Launching the BIOS update process

After the file was downloaded and the decision to update is made. start the executable file (I recommend doing this late in the evening, the reason indicated at the beginning of the article).

The program will warn you once again that in the process of updating:

  • – you cannot transfer the system into a mode of gibbernation, sleeping mode, etc.;
  • – other programs cannot be launched;
  • – Do not press the power button, do not block the system, do not insert new USB devices (do not disconnect already connected).

If you agree with everyone “impossible”, click the OK button to start launching the update process. A window will appear on the screen with the process of loading new firmware (as in rice. 5).

Next, your laptop will go to reboot, after which you will see the BIOS update itself directly (the most important 1-2 minutes, see. rice. 6).

By the way, many users are afraid of one moment: at this moment, coolers begin to work on the maximum of their capabilities, which causes a fairly large noise. Some users are afraid that they did something wrong and turn off the laptop-in no case do so. Just wait for the end of the update process, the laptop will continue to automatically restart and the noise from the coolers will disappear.

If everything went well, then the laptop will download the installed version of Windows as usual: you will not see anything new by eye, everything will work as before. Only the firmware version will now be more new (and, for example, support new equipment. by the way, this is the most common reason for installing a new firmware version).

How to go to the BIOS laptop Lenovo

Usually, in order to enter the BIOS on Lenovo laptops (on most models), it is enough to press the F2 (or FNF2) button when it is turned on. Or button with the image of the arrow on the side or on top of the case (near the power button).

Lenovo (ThinkPad, Ideapad, 3000 Series, Thinkcentre, ThinkStation)-F1-F2 or DEL

Third way: F8 or Delete

The third way to go to the BIOS on the Dell laptop to install Windows or make changes to the system settings is to use the F8 or Delete (Del) keys. If none of the above methods helps, then you should use this method. This information will be especially relevant for users of Dell laptops, the models of which were released from 2005 to 2010.

Sometimes, even on one model, two of these buttons can be involved at once, that is, in order to enter the BIOS, it was enough to press any of them immediately after turning on the laptop.

Fourth method: ESC

The penultimate, fourth way to go to BIOS on Dell laptops is to use the ESC key. Dell, perhaps one of the few companies that at one time practiced this method, but very quickly abandoned it due to unpopularity and inconvenience. Many users complained that they have random presses on ESC, which is why the entrance is made to BIOS.

This method will also be very relevant for most old laptop models.
