Identifying your BIOS version is easy: hold down the Windows key R to bring up the Run command prompt and type in msinfo32.

Additionally, the full model name –such as P5E3 Deluxe – is usually found somewhere on the board itself.

It’s important to get the full name as there are ususally subtly different versions.

The process is automatic and doesn't require you to type any commands at a prompt.

However this isn't always the case, even for new motherboards or laptops, and it's possible that you will have to create a bootable CD or USB drive and copy the files to that.

For this reason, it's worth checking whether you really need to update your BIOS.

Read the release notes of the latest version (and each version back to the one currently installed) to see whether it will add the features you need or fix a problem you're having.

Even if the BIOS update is designed to be run from a floppy disk you can usually use a USB flash drive, but you may need to first enter the BIOS to tell it to boot from the CD or USB drive instead of the hard drive.

Typically you won't need to as a PC or laptop will be set up to look for a removable disc or drive before trying to boot from the hard drive.

Alternatively, look for a 'Press F10 for boot options' or similar as your computer is starting to bring up a list of drives.

To make a USB drive bootable, you will need a utility such as Rufus or Unetbootin.

They do vary, and you may need to configure some things before starting the update process, such as disabling secure boot modes and fast boot modes.
