As I mentioned earlier, the computer without software (or firmware) is essentially useless.For most of our day to day use, the main operating system (Windows, Linux...) determines the capabilities of a computer.That memory is used to store the values entered when you set up the computer's BIOS parameters.This page shows some of the various setting and will tell, briefly what the setting affect in the computer's operation.Also ASRock motherboard MUST use ASRock's Flash utility to update BIOS, those uncertified BIOS flashing tools will cause motherboard damage.
If you encounter problems while updating the new BIOS, DO NOT turn off your system since this corrupt BIOS might cause your system failed to boot up.Before I go any further, I should tell you that you should not go into the BIOS unless you either know what you're doing or you're working on a computer that is unimportant to you or anyone who may need it.While it's relatively difficult to destroy data by changing values in the BIOS, it IS easy to make changes that would prevent the computer from booting.: The Flash Memory Writer utility is included in the Win Zip format of BIOS file. ) The Flash Memory Writer utility can not be suitable for all ASRock motherboards.It updates the BIOS by uploading a new BIOS file to the programmable flash ROM chip on the motherboard. Please use the Flash utility which is included in each BIOS file to update its BIOS.When the PC is switched on, it is this chip that starts first.
