Download BIOS update utility

The BIOS update utility is a software provided by the system manufacturer i.e. Dell for use with the Dell OptiPlex GX280 desktop. This program can be downloaded for free from the official Dell support website and should be saved to the system desktop for accessing it later. It is advised that the users download the latest version of BIOS update utility from the official product support page only so as to prevent the risk of infections and crashes.

Run program in Windows

Users should close all applications, programs and running non system critical processes prior to executing the saved Dell BIOS update utility file. This is because the program requires a system restart to update the BIOS version and the programs and applications running in system background can cause issues. Running the program after fixing system issues and using admin privileges is recommended.

Update BIOS version

Once the user executes the BIOS update utility file in the desktop, it will show a warning message that running the utility will close all programs and processes so as to facilitate a system restart.
