What is BIOS?

BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is a firmware program loaded when the computer starts up. It is stored on a small memory chip on the motherboard. The main functions of BIOS include initializing and testing hardware components, loading the operating system, and providing a set of basic input/output services for the operating system and other software.

Entering the BIOS allows you to perform the following operations:

  1. Boot Order: You can specify which device the computer should load the operating system from during startup, such as the hard drive, optical drive, or USB device.

  2. Hardware Configuration: You can enable or disable specific hardware components, such as onboard audio, network adapters, or USB ports.

  3. System Time and Date: You can set the system's time and date, which is important for some operating systems and applications.

  4. Security Settings: You can set passwords to protect BIOS settings, preventing unauthorized changes. Additionally, you can enable or disable a boot password to restrict physical access to the computer.

  5. Performance Adjustments: Advanced users can adjust CPU, memory, and other hardware performance parameters in the BIOS to optimize system performance or perform overclocking (increasing the operating speed of hardware within safe limits).

  6. Power Management: You can configure power management options to enhance energy efficiency, such as enabling or disabling power-saving modes and sleep functions.

  7. Hardware Diagnostics: You can run hardware diagnostic tools to check the status of the system's hardware and identify potential issues.
