Bios updating option

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.

Generally, there is no mouse capability in the BIOS.

The information in the BIOS allows the computer to interface with the monitor, keyboard and mouse (among other things) until the OS can take over.

The BIOS is stored on a small IC that has a small amount of flash memory.

The BIOS section of the manual will tell you what you need to know about the BIOS settings.

If you're unsure, you can almost always find help on one of the computer forums like the Major Geeks forum.

If you set it too high, your computer may become unstable, it may be unable to boot and/or it could overheat.

If you ever make a BIOS change that prevents the computer from booting, you can clear the CMOS memory with the 'clear CMOS' jumper.The Super Recovery allows you to partition off the drive in a way that nothing can access it from the OS (nothing -- not partitioning software or malware -- nothing).It is supposed to offer the highest level of protection for your data. It allows you to increase the speed of the processor but you have to be careful.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.Here you can see some relatively new/unique BIOS features.
