Updating bios version 9d 02
Hey, My laptop decided today to have the error of EFI Network 0 for IPv4 and IPv6 both failing and I've tried doing the f2 thing but nothing's coming up Got the laptop in December and I don't know what else to do or how to do it, can someone help as I need the laptop desperately for my university computer course Thank you.I want to update my BIOS from version F3 to version F11 which is latest however I am not sure as to what I should be doing with the file I got from the manufacturer. My motherboard is from Gigabyte and it's model number is 965P-DS3 rev 1.0 (C1) and chipset is P965/G965. I got a file which extracted then 3 other files to where I desired. F11 (i assume this is the bios file itself or patcher for it or w/e related to it)(it runs the exe and fills in it seems the file name for the bios "965PDS3. This is called the ESCD (Extended System Configuration Data) and this is usually stored in additional non-volatile memory also referred to as NVRAM (Non-Volatile Random Access Memory) Over the years as technology has changed people still refer to the BIOS as both CMOS and NVRAM, however they are subtly different.
EXE (the exe itself which can be run or if i want i can pick the autoexec to fill in for me)If I run and let it do it's thing it will suddenly exit the program and as a result I got a log.
The BIOS also contains instructions that the PC uses to perform basic instructions, such as whether to Boot from Network or Hard drive, which drive to Boot from first.
BIOS is also used to identify and configure hardware components in a computer such as the hard drive, floppy drive, optical drive, CPU, memory, Plug and Play devices etc.
This will render your computer unbootable — it’ll be “bricked.” Your computer’s BIOS version is displayed in the BIOS setup menu itself, but you don’t have to reboot to check this version number.
There are several ways to see your BIOS version from within Windows, and they work the same on PCs with a traditional BIOS or a newer UEFI firmware.
