BIOSAgentPlus Driver Update

Every computer system contains a program called the BIOS, or the basic input-output system. This is basically like a foundation of a structure on which all other software, such as the OS, rely on. Of course, like the structure’s foundation, it is advised to keep the BIOS in good working condition in order for the computer system to stay strong.

Modern PCs can do a lot of complicated tasks. But once as you turn them on, they are not as powerful as everyone thinks. What the computer’s central processing unit, or the CPU, only does is access a certain chip to find a certain set of instructions that tells what to do after. That set of instructions refers to the BIOS. This program guides the CPU to perform basic operations, like read computer peripherals and turn on the display.

The BIOS is called out in order to be ready for use. This process is called “bootstrapping,” taken from the phrase “pulling oneself by their bootstraps.” The BIOS starts the system hardware and directs the CPU how to use it. It will then let the PC test its hardware to check if it’s fully functional and tells the PC where and how to look for a special boot program on the disk drive. With the disk boot program, the computer learns how to find files on the disk in order to load and run the operating system.

Bootstrapping is not just the BIOS’s role. The BIOS must understand the PC’s hardware and settings and interact directly with that hardware. The BIOS, therefore, serves as operating system’s guide, interpreter, and foreman for communicating with the hardware.

While the BIOS plays these important roles in both the PC’s startup and ongoing operation, it can affect the PC’s performance and operational stability as well as the speed of graphics and other signal channels. Making sure that the computer is updated is vital to keep it functional. It is also important to give the PC access to new hardware controls. These include CPU upgrades, updates and repairs as well as system power control.

The best source for updates and maintenance for the computer’s BIOS is the BIOS developer. A BIOS developer has a stake in keeping their BIOS updated, strong and operating at utmost efficiency.

Phoenix Technologies is the leading BIOS developer that offers tools, such as BIOSAgentPlus to ease BIOS maintenance virtually for any PC. These utilities can keep the PC’s foundation strong so that the rest can still work well.
