BIOS update on Asus laptop

BIOS update procedure

  • Go to the manufacturer’s website and find the support page for your model on the website. Better to use search. In any leading brand, the list of laptops is at least hundreds of devices of different age. Below, for example, is the ASUS support page. On the support page, you usually need to select the Drivers & Utilities section, then specify the operating system. The menu items we need should be called BIOS and BIOS utilities. The first contains information about the latest versions of the basic I / O system, and in
  • Determine the available BIOS version. Please note that many manufacturers publish a changelog that carries the update. If the solution to your problem is not listed, then it is likely that the problem is not in the BIOS, but in the installed programs and operating system
  • Now we determine the current BIOS version: launch the MSInfo application, press the Win key and start writing the first letters of the program name. Find the BIOS section and see the version. Build 216 is installed and only 216 is available. If you have an older version than on the manufacturer’s website, then go ahead.
  • Download the BIOS update utility. Previously, only DOS programs were used for firmware. Now everything can be done with a regular application, for example, WinFlash directly from under Windows.
  • Install the program and run.
  • Download the latest BIOS from the manufacturer’s website. Be sure to remember the directory where you unzipped the file.
  • During the launch of the update utility, BIO S asks for the path to the firmware file. We find the directory in which we unpacked it, and select with the mouse.
  • Be sure to connect the power supply and make sure that the battery charge is at least 20%. Otherwise, the program will not even start its work. In case of power failures, you run the risk of Getting a dead piece of iron and plastic instead of a working laptop with an outdated BIOS version.
  • In the update utility window, in our case WinFlash, we will see the installed version again, and the version from the manufacturer’s website. If they match, then the Flash button will be disabled. Otherwise, click on Flash and wait for the procedure to complete.

How to enter BIOS on a laptop

BIOS starts immediately at startup. In older models, the letters are clearly visible in the upper left corner of the screen immediately after starting the download. Then they disappear and are replaced by pictures of the OS startup, since it is to it that control of the laptop is transferred.

First you need to determine your laptop model. Here are typical ways for popular brands:

  • ASUS: Hold F2 when power on.
  • ACER: also F2, DEL. exotic keys: Ctrl-Alt-ESC or F1.
  • Compaq: F10 key.
  • DELL: classic DEL, F2, extremely rare. Ctrl-Alt-Enter.
  • HP: F2, ESC keys.
  • LENOVO: Del, F2.

If everything worked out for you, then something like this window should appear.

Remember to reboot first. The BIOS window is visible only in the first seconds of operation.

Instructions for updating BIOS on a laptop

In the laptop maintenance recommendations, you can find a mention of the need to update the BIOS. Few users know why. However, without BIOS, it is impossible to work on computers in principle.

Important notes

A laptop is a rather closed device in terms of flexibility. Increasing the frequency of the processor or memory will inevitably lead to overheating and premature failure of laptop components. Therefore, it is not worth pinning high expectations on the BIOS construction site. The most you can do is slightly raise the processor frequency, if allowed by the manufacturer, and select a device to boot.

The latter feature is useful when you need to boot from a USB flash drive. For example, it is necessary to fight viruses. In this case, you need to download the boot disk image from the antivirus developer’s website and boot from it. Previously, you must go into the laptop BIOS and specify the USB-drive as the main device to boot.

I warn you. it is better to entrust the operations to repair or improve your laptop to professionals. Most crashes occur due to incorrect operation of programs in the operating system. The BIOS is only an intermediary between the software and hardware of the laptop.

First step in updating BIOS on asus laptop via Windows

First of all, follow the link in front and download the utility for updating the BIOS.

There is an important point here. By clicking on the link you will be able to download two utilities directly from this site, and instructions on how to download from the manufacturer’s website.

Why? The fact is that if your laptop is a little old. it was released when there were no Windows 7 and windows 8 (8.1) or even Windows 10 operating systems yet, then developers for new systems do not create new utilities, therefore, there will be for old OS.

At the moment, you could have installed sevens, eight or ten. the utilities for updating the BIOS that are located there may NOT work, but the ones that will work on the site are usually v2. With the utilities sorted out, go to the second step.

How even a teapot update the BIOS of an ASUS laptop

If you write in any search engine how to update the BIOS of a motherboard on an asus laptop: eee pc x101ch, p5b, p8z77 v, p5ld2 se, m2n mx, p5ld2, p5k, x551m, asus m2n, p5kpl, p8p67, p8h61, p5q, m5a97, x551ma. p5pl2, p8h67, z87, p7p55d, p5k, x200ma, x54h, x55a or any other, you will be offered several ways.

The first is to update BIOS on asus laptop via doc. The second is to update through the built-in tools of the BIOS itself. The third is to reflash via a USB flash drive.

The fourth is how to update via the Internet. Fifth. how to update the BIOS on an asus laptop directly through Windows.

I will describe only the last option. it is the simplest and most difficult one. Any teapot can use it (beginner).

If you choose the first way to update the BIOS version in ASUS laptops, then there was no gimmick, and not everyone can use the second, especially the owners of old models, and it is not necessary to update on new ones.

There is another one through the asus BIOS update utility, only on two laptops, for some reason it did NOT want to be installed

Also, two laptops did not see the flash drive with the BIOS image, so, so as not to confuse you, the fifth update method will be described here. it worked on 5 ASUS laptops. I hope it will work for you.

The second step in updating the BIOS version on ASUS

Now you need to find the new BIOS version and install it instead of the old one. update.

Where to get it. You can find it by the name of the motherboard, only for so long, it’s much easier to download a ready-made one from the manufacturer’s website.

To do this, go to the ASUS website and look for your laptop model. To do this, slowly begin to enter the name in the search bar, one character at a time.

When you write below, the relevant name will begin to appear, when you see the name of your model, click on it (you can copy, paste and click search). Take for example p5b se.

I got two results.

You may have more, or if one, then this step will be skipped, and you will be taken to the page for selecting drivers and utilities. click on this option.

Now you will need to specify the OS (if you have something wrong as I am describing here, you will have to look for a new BIOS version by the name of the motherboard. over time, the site interface may also change. at the time of this writing, he is like me Describing).

Now we press the BIOS and download the version that is higher by clicking on the line “global”.

Third step is to update BIOS on ASUS

Now you have everything you need. a new BIOS version and an update program. We take it all out of the archive to the desktop, Install the program and run it.

After launching the utility, you need to tell it where your new BIOS is located, so place it on your desktop. this will make it easier to find.

After you indicate the junk where the new version is located, it will determine whether it is correct or not. so DO NOT worry that something will go wrong.

After that, at the bottom, click “FLASH” and wait 1. 2 minutes until your BIOS is updated.

After that, restart your laptop and admire the new version. very often new options appear.

That’s all. the update is over. You will not find an easier and safer option, although you can experiment. your business.

And what to do if the described method has failed. the test has NOT passed. Then write the reason or the error in the comments. we’ll figure it out. Success.

Updating the BIOS from the operating system

The easiest and safest way, which is:

  • Goes to the official Asus website. www.Asus.com/ru/support;
  • You need to enter your laptop model;
  • Go to the “Drivers and Utilities” menu;
  • Then you need to choose your operating system Windows 7, 8 or 10,
  • Save BIOS firmware to your computer.

Then we need a specialized utility. Windows BIOS Flash Utility, with which we open the firmware and press Flash. It will only take a couple of minutes to update, then restart your laptop.

Despite all the advantages of this upgrade method, there are some disadvantages. The method is unlikely to work on too old laptop models; experimental or beta versions may also be missing. For this reason, this update method may NOT work for all Asus laptop users.

How to update BIOS on Asus laptop

Good day to those who decided to visit our blog cho-cho.Ru. In today’s article we will answer the question: “How to update the BIOS on an Asus laptop”, although the update on a personal computer will be exactly the same.

Most laptop and personal computer users are unlikely to need a BIOS update. But if it is necessary to perform this operation, serious problems may arise, since updating the BIOS is not so easy and any error can completely disable the laptop.

Before getting down to business, you need to find out the exact model of the motherboard of your laptop, an attempt to install the BIOS of a different model can lead to several results:

  • The banal impossibility of updating;
  • Update with further Incorrect device performance;
  • Complete laptop breakdown.

It is also worth checking the BIOS version preinstalled on the laptop from the factory. The laptop can be installed with the latest version available, which will reduce the point from its upgrade to zero.

Updating directly from BIOS

The method is complicated and will require the following specific knowledge from the user: the ability to launch the BIOS (we wrote about this in detail in this article) and configure it, exact knowledge of the model of his laptop and the BIOS version, and at least basic knowledge of English.

This method has the following advantages:

  • The ability to use the latest versions;
  • The ability to expand the original functionality of a laptop by installing a modified version It is not uncommon for a cheap laptop to have the functionality of a more expensive version, but it is blocked by software, in which case the installation of a modified version by enthusiasts will help. Attention: installing such a BIOS can damage the laptop and void the warranty for the device, therefore, such actions are strongly discouraged.!
  • The ability to install an older version (it is useful when you find many errors in a new BIOS).
  • The first step is to download the required version onto a prepared flash drive. The best source is the official Asus website. www.Asus.com/ru/support/
  • Reboot the laptop into BIOS (“F2” key immediately after turning on the device). Install the drive into the laptop before rebooting.
  • Find the menu item “Update Firmware”, “Update BIOS” or something similar.
  • Specify the desired drive and wait for the update to complete.

What should I do if after the upgrade the laptop turns on, an image appears on the monitor, but the operating system does not load? In this case, you need to reset the BIOS settings to factory defaults. To do this, go into the BIOS and press the “F5” key.

If the operating system still does NOT boot, you can try reinstalling the BIOS again. If, it is worth trying to insert the installation media with the operating system and try to boot from it, if nothing happens, the BIOS is faulty and you need to install an older version. You can use any functioning computer to download the old version.

General recommendations

Before installing a new BIOS version on a laptop, you need to find out as much information as possible about the motherboard on which it works. You will definitely need the following information:

  • The name of your motherboard manufacturer. If you have a laptop from ASUS, then the manufacturer will be respectively ASUS;
  • Motherboard model and serial number (if available). The fact is that some older models may NOT support newer BIOS versions, so it would be wise to find out if your oregano supports the update;
  • Current BIOS version. Perhaps you already have the latest version installed, or perhaps your motherboard no longer supports a newer version.

If you decide to ignore these recommendations, then when updating, you risk disrupting the device’s performance or completely disable it.

Updating from a USB flash drive via BIOS

You may need to flash the BIOS if you notice a problem with your device. In most cases, it is thanks to this procedure that the repetition of critical system errors and other malfunctions can be avoided. If you are NOT sure that the problems of your laptop are related specifically to the BIOS. Contact the official ASUS service center, where they will carry out hardware diagnostics of the device.

Firmware

If after updating the computer monitor does NOT display an image or the computer refuses to turn on at all, then your attempt to overclock the video adapter clearly failed.

There can be two reasons:

  • Incorrect BIOS version installed;
  • An error was made during the update.

To rectify the situation, and enjoy the work of the old, not overclocked card, you will need a second video adapter. This is a prerequisite, so it’s better to worry about its availability in advance.

Insert the second video adapter into an empty slot, and then connect a monitor to it. Reload the disk from which the new BIOS version was written. As you remember, we saved the old version on it. Now it needs to be restored.

Type nvflash.A in MS-DOS mode. With its help, you will find out the code of the adapter that requires a new firmware. Enter the command “nvflash.I x.F oldBIOS.Bin”. X in this case is the same adapter code, and “oldBIOS.Bin” is the file with the old BIOS version.

Turn off the computer, disconnect the second video card and try to boot with the first video adapter. If everything went right, it will be working again.

BIOS update via manufacturer software

The first method, which will allow you to install a new BIOS on a laptop, is simple, but not suitable for all equipment. It assumes loading the program. Which independently update the BIOS. Such applications are often developed by the most reputable manufacturers.

Updating the base system goes like this:

  • Run the MSInfo utility on your hardware and find the section that deals with BIOS specifications. Here you need to find out the version of the base system. You can also get information in it by looking at the back of the case, or using Special utilities that determine the version of the system. In general, there are several options, how to find out the version of the software, and which one to choose, it remains a matter of your preferences.
  • Now go to the laptop manufacturer’s website and find information about your model.
  • Stop at the section with drivers to update the device. Usually you need to specify which version of Windows you are using, after which you can view a list of available new drivers.
  • Find BIOS updates in the mentioned list, look at the suggested version. If it is older by number, then you can update the system.

Note. Be sure to download all the necessary files only from the official website, otherwise you risk damaging your laptop. As for their selection on the web page. Pay close attention to all the intricacies of the model name, model number or version.

  • Download the file with the program for updating, save it to the Hard disk. Then download another and new BIOS version for your hardware.
  • Unpack the archive and install the program, run it.
  • Specify the path to the firmware file in the application. Yaky also need to be unpacked first. After the program will offer to start the update process.

There are two things to keep in mind when updating:

  • Connect the laptop to the network so that it does NOT suddenly run out of power.
  • DO NOT perform the second actions while the program is running, wait until it does everything necessary.

After the update is complete, you can start using the new BIOS version the next time you boot your computer.

You have just learned how to update the BIOS on a laptop using a specially designed application. It’s quite simple, because the whole process takes place directly in the system, and the utility independently performs almost all actions.

But installation is not always possible using a simple program, there are cases when new software is loaded only with the introduction of a bootable USB flash drive. Therefore, let’s look at how to install a different BIOS on a laptop from DOS via an external drive.

Creating a DOS boot disk

This is the most used method, although DOS itself is not very common among users. Most of the instructions that describe how to update the BIOS on a laptop call this method the best and most secure.

Preparing to upgrade

When deciding how to update the BIOS of the motherboard, the first thing to do is find out which version you have installed. It’s easy to do: you can look at the board itself, or in the documentation that came with it in the box.

You can find out the version in the system itself by pressing the WinR combination that calls the Run menu, and typing the command “msinfo32”. In the “System Information” window that appears, you will also find the entry you need.

You learned the version. Now, if you want to update the BIOS of your asus or any other motherboard, you need to visit the official website of that manufacturer. Here in the “Downloads” section you need to look if there is an update for your version.

Note: if you bought a computer from a major manufacturer, which completely completes the system unit with all the boards, then go to the website of this company and look for the device model if there are any new BIOS versions.
