How to Install Asus BIOS Update

By David Ward

ASUSTek produces a wide array of motherboards. It sometimes becomes necessary to update the basic input/output system (BIOS) on the motherboard. This is primarily necessary due to system instability that has been solved with later versions of the BIOS software. ASUS provides a utility called the "BIOS Update" utility. Using the most up-to-date version of this utility can ensure proper function of any ASUS motherboard.

Step 1

Navigate to the ASUSTek support site. Use the drop-down menus to select your product type, model and operating system.

Step 2

Select the model of your motherboard and the system that you are using. This will take you to a download screen with the correct version of the ASUS BIOS update utility. Download the utility.

Step 3

Close all other Windows programs and open the BIOS Update file that you downloaded. The "Driver" menu will appear. Click "Utilities" and select "Install Asus Update."

Tips & Warnings

  • BIOS updates can cause system instability if not done correctly. Only update the BIOS if necessary and if you have experience doing this.
  • Once started, BIOS updates must complete or system instability will result. Ensure that the computer has a constant power supply before starting this process.
