Then type msinfo32 and press the return or enter key and the system information window will pop up If you still can’t get the information, you can use command prompt. In command prompt enter the same command as above which is “msinfo32” and you should get the information as in the Dell Inspiron screen shot below.

Another option would be to go on this page all dell drivers are listed and scroll or search for your computer.

An important thing to note is that in order to update the BIOS successfully you need to have the battery and power adapter connected if it’s a laptop. It will open a window with details about the new BIOS firmware you downloaded.

The acronyms BIOS, CMOS and NVRAM, they are often used interchangeable to mean the same thing while they are different.
