How to Install Asus BIOS

Your computer's motherboard needs the correct version of the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) to properly run through all its power on tests and ensure each hardware device is working. When you start to experience hardware problems or have trouble loading the operating system, its likely time to install a new BIOS, which is a process called "flashing." The BIOS can be upgraded directly from your desktop by running the Asus BIOS updater tool.
