A computer's basic input output system (BIOS) is the structure underlying all the computer's functions. The BIOS is the skeleton programming over which the operating system, such as Windows, is layered. It's responsible for core computer functions. Each motherboard manufacturer uses a different BIOS. Therefore, each BIOS requires a different access key. Computer users who run 32-bit operating systems often enable the memory remapping feature in BIOS, to allow a greater capacity of RAM to be used.
