I am having an Intel processor based dual core system with 64 bit windows-7 version installed in it. Whenever I switch it on, the first option that arrives on my screen is BIOS setting. Same is the case with every computer based on Intel motherboard. BIOS settings refers to the system settings entering which you can choose any device while booting it from a USB or you can check the status of your hard disk in order to determine if it is connected or not.

It is recommended that you try to upgrade your system’s BIOS but it is never recommended that you downgrade it. When you try to upgrade your system to an earlier arrived version of BIOS, it is never called an up-gradation but rather it is referred as down-gradation. We advise you not to perform any such down-gradation of your computer’s BIOS.
