This package updates the basic input/output system (BIOS) on ThinkCentre A55 (type 9636, 9638, 9640, 9641) and ThinkCentre M55e (type 9300, 9301, 9642, 9643, 9644, 9645) systems.

BIOS is programming that controls low-level hardware operations, including interactions with diskette drives, hard drives, and the keyboard. The BIOS is stored on a chip. Your computer uses flash BIOS, which can be updated through a program on a flash diskette so that you do not have to replace the BIOS chip to update the BIOS.

Note: Make note of any settings you have changed in the BIOS Configuration Utility. These settings may have to be re-entered after updating the BIOS.
