    You change the bios by flashing it with a different one. You can do it in windows sometimes or by using a floppy disc. You need to download the new bios file from the manufacture website

    Since you have no clue, I would recommend you don't do it, since you can brick a device.

    First off learn how to use your computer, know what parts are in your computer (exact make/model/BIOS revision) download correct firmware files and flasher, read instructions, see if you need to flash it in the first place...and only flash on a stable machine also.
