BIOS is a firmware on your motherboard that is used to initialize the hardware when you power on your PC. As soon as you power on your PC, BIOS performs the basic hardware tests, and if everything is in order, it loads the boot loader and starts the operating system.
In addition to checking your hardware and booting the system, you can also use BIOS to configure your hardware. By accessing BIOS, you can disable or enable certain components, set the boot devices, change device settings, and overclock your components. BIOS also allows you to monitor the health of your system, so you can easily check the PC temperature, current voltage, and speed of your fans.
In case you have any issues with BIOS, be sure to check our wide collection of troubleshooting guides.
