If you are a bit skeptical or doubtful when it comes to updating your motherboard’s BIOS, you have all the rights to be so because messing around with BIOS updates could be a very tricky business that renders your computer unusable.
Not in the case of ASUS motherboards though, as the Taiwanese hardware manufacturer has released a dedicated software solution that can make the entire process a lot easier.
ASUS Update is an advanced application that can be installed in a matter of seconds and can really give you a helping hand when trying to update the BIOS. Basically, it offers multiple updating modes, including an online one or through a downloaded file, but both of them should work just fine.
The interface is not quite eye-candy but it was not really supposed to be since the role of the whole application is to perform this difficult task as safely and efficiently as possible, not to look nice and be of no use.
There is a whole procedure to follow before jumping into flashing the BIOS, so it is recommendable to check every step twice just to be sure that nothing goes wrong.
We’ve tested the tool using the online mode and the BIOS was updated successfully, so we must mention once again that it’s very important to follow the steps provided by the manufacturer.
All in all, ASUS Update is a life-saving tool when you need to address some hardware issues by updating the BIOS, so give it a shot if you really have to. It comes with a freeware license, but don’t mess around with it unless you really know what you’re doing.
