Is BIOS hardware or software?
BIOS is software that works with the hardware. It is stored on a chip that is part of the computer’s motherboard. It is basically a set of instructions.
Should you update BIOS?
Experts recommend that you should only update BIOS (or mess with it at all) unless there is a very specific, clear reason for doing so (meaning that you are experiencing a problem).
Will a BIOS update delete anything?
BIOS is software, separate and apart from the hard drive data. Doing a BIOS update should not delete files.
What is a motherboard?
It is a printed circuit board, located on the back or deep down at the bottom of the computer tower (or inside the laptop). It distributes the power and facilitates communication between all of the various hardware parts.
