Colin’s Travel Tech

Regular readers may notice that this is my first article in a while. Why, you may ask? I've been traveling throughout the eastern United States on business. Since June, I've spent more than 18 of 30 weeks on the road, in the air, or on a train. In that time, I honed my travel skills and, most importantly to we geeks, my travel kit.

How to Flash (Update) Your Motherboard’s System BIOS

There were numerous articles on the subject back when I first got into building, and all of them involved a 3.5” floppy drive. Today, nearly all motherboards have multiple options for flashing the BIOS, and normally a floppy isn’t required.

Many people who have built their own computer should already know this, but if you somehow forget or you have purchased your computer from a store this guide will easy show you where to find this information.
