Can anyone share me some idea about process of update BIOS? because when I visit to Dell official website, I can't find driver for windows 8.1!!!!

Note: My current windows 7 64bit and CPU core i5=2.4GHz and RAM=8GBThank you big big!!!! A BIOS update is only needed to address a particular problem.

If you are not sure a BIOS update witll work best to leave because if you get it wrong you end up with an expensive door stop. you will need to know what exactly is installed in terms of hardware - as the drivers for tit all may not be available from Dell website/support etc.

You do NOT have to update the BIOS, but you WILL have to find the necessary drivers for Windows 8. Run Belarc Advisor and it will generate a full report on what is installed - hardware (and software with the keys too).

If they are not available from the Dell website, you will have to do some detective work to identify each of your hardware components (chipset, graphics, audio, network, wireless, etc), then locate & download the Win8 compatible drivers. Print that report and also save it off the system as a file - for future reference.

Forum rules There are no such things as "stupid" questions. Enter BIOS, and change the relevant options to boot from the flash drive/memory card. A GRUB-like menu should appear with only one option (i.e. In my case, it was C:\ then run the BIOS update utility. Note: I've only tested this method with a 512MB Kingston SD Card and a 1GB Transcend USB flash drive. Just tried procedure outlined above on Acer Aspire One but without success. I'm trying to update bios version to fix battery problem.

However if you think your question is a bit stupid, then this is the right place for you to post it. Open up a terminal window then enter the code below to make Unetbootin executable:5. When I run the bios utility (stuff.exe) it returns the error message "This FD file can not open."Any ideas?

The other option is to run the BIOS update utility from a DOS environment with a floppy disk. This is how I flashed my laptop's BIOS using a DOS utility provided by the manufacturer.

Please stick to easy to-the-point questions that you feel people can answer fast. In Unetbootin, choose 'Disk image' and -- this is important -- select 'Floppy' from the drop-down list next to it.6. Now copy the BIOS update utility to your flash drive/memory card.

For long and complicated questions prefer the other forums within the support section. Now click on '...' and navigate to the Free DOS image you extracted at Step 1.7. Trust me, just copy it as you would any other file.11.

On the other hand, we have previously covered why you shouldn’t generally update your hardware drivers, although gamers will definitely want to update their graphics drivers. BIOS updates will not make your computer faster, they generally won’t add new features you need, and they may even cause additional problems.
