Updating bios on asus

13 Mar

The BIOS version number is displayed on the System Summary pane. Different motherboards use different utilities and procedures, so there’s no one-size-fits-all set of instructions here.

To check your BIOS version from the Command Prompt, hit Start, type “cmd” in the search box, and then click the “Command Prompt” result—no need to run it as an administrator.

At the prompt, type (or copy and paste) the following command, and then hit Enter: You can also find your BIOS’s version number in the System Information window.

Download the latest/desired version from the manufacturer’s website, and double-click to extract the files within it.

Copy/Extract the files into a USB drive with FAT32/16/12 file system.

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.

The interface is not quite eye-candy but it was not really supposed to be since the role of the whole application is to perform this difficult task as safely and efficiently as possible, not to look nice and be of no use.

ASUS Manager Update is an advanced application that can be installed in a matter of seconds and can really give you a helping hand when trying to update the BIOS.
