So today we will learn about BIOS in detail.

What is Computer BIOS?

The BIOS i.e. Basic Input Output System is the most important part of a computer. Its main function is to start up Computer Boot Process i.e. to start Computer Start.

With this, it configures all the Input / Output Devices such as Mouse, Keyboard, Scanner, Printer etc. and identifies the Computer which is the Input Device and which is the Output Device. The EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable ROM) on the BIOS Software Motherboard is stored on the ROM chip.

What is CMOS ?

The CMOS i.e. Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor is a battery, which stores all the settings in the BIOS, and with the help of this the BIOS starts the Computer Booting Process.

You must have seen that even after computer OFF, its time & date does not change.

This is because the setting of Time & Date is stored in the BIOS and it runs with CMOS Battery. If the CMOS battery of a computer is bad, after plugging in, it takes a little time to start the computer and the time & date is also reset.

What does the BIOS work?

As I mentioned above, the BIOS helps in starting the computer and it configures all the Input / Output Devices. But with this the BIOS does many more important tasks that help the computer to run well. for example -

  • Checking Computer Setting and CMOS Setting

  • Loading All Computer Drivers

  • Power-on-self-testing

  • BIOS Password Set / Reset

Can BIOS Setting be viewed?

Many people have a question that how to open BIOS setting? If you also have a question in your mind that "Can BIOS Setting be seen?" So the answer is yes, of course you can access BIOS setting.
