This will render your computer unbootable—it’ll be “bricked.” Your computer’s BIOS version is displayed in the BIOS setup menu itself, but you don’t have to reboot to check this version number.

There are several ways to see your BIOS version from within Windows, and they work the same on PCs with a traditional BIOS or a newer UEFI firmware.

If you purchased a pre-built computer instead of building your own, head to the computer manufacturer’s website, look up the computer model, and look at its downloads page.

Inside, you’ll find some sort of BIOS file—in the screenshot below, it’s the E7887IMS.140 file.RELATED: You’ll need to choose one of several different types of BIOS-flashing tools, depending on your motherboard and what it supports.The BIOS update’s included README file should recommend the ideal option for your hardware.Some manufacturers offer a BIOS-flashing option directly in their BIOS, or as a special key-press option when you boot the computer.You copy the BIOS file to a USB drive, reboot your computer, and then enter the BIOS or UEFI screen.
