- The latest version of Windows apparently allows manufacturers to pawn off the BIOS upgrade to Microsoft. Instead of you having to locate and install the BIOS by downloading it from the manufacturer's website or using the manufacturer's own system update utility, an update to the firmware will download the latest BIOS available on Microsoft servers.
A few facts.
1. Sometimes, the firmware available may not be the latest, compared to the website. Sometimes however, what is on Microsoft server may be the latest one, even preceding the one published on the manufacturer website. Happens to me a few time with HP laptops.
2. Be very careful when updating that involves Intel's ME updates. I had one update that sort of skipped an ME update on the Predator Helios 300 and it sort of screwed something since the system claims that I don't have windows. Probably screwed up the encryption of something.
Some of the malware these days are targeting even the firmware stored on a small BIOS/UEFI chip that resides on your computer’s motherboard. At this point not many security products are capable of scanning the BIOS/UEFI firmware and therefore these kinds of rootkits are very dangerous. As we explained in a previous article – how to protect against Lojax rootkit, the only way to get rid of these type of malware is to re-flash the firmware in the BIOS/UEFI chip on your motherboard.
If you have a computer that uses Insyde BIOS/UEFI then it is very easy to re-flash or update the firmware. The first obvious step is to find and download the update. You won’t get these updates from the Insyde website. If you have a desktop computer, then you should get it from the motherboard manufacturer’s website. If you have a laptop/notebook computer, then you should get it from the device manufacturer’s website. Usually these updates are located in the “Support” section of their websites.
Once you have procured the firmware update file for Insyde BIOS/UEFI, then you can follow these steps:
WEP came up with the idea of creating a safe platform for internet network user by avoiding hackers from snooping onto internet connections. But after a few years, researchers found out that WEP is rather unsafe to use because various methods had then been available to bypass the security strength of the 90s based network security type.

- Attach the AC adapter cable to your notebook even if battery is fully charged.
- Close all the programs running in your computer.
- Launch the Insyde firmware update tool for your computer.

- It will erase the older firmware first, then it will continue to write newer firmware.
- When the firmware is flashed completely, your computer will be restarted automatically.
After computer has rebooted back into Windows, it should work without no problem. But an old method to ensure that the new firmware works properly is to reset the BIOS to default values and adjust the values again after each firmware update.
