Find the BIOS Version from the Command Line and Powershell

Similar to finding the Dell Service Tag via the command line, we can use WMI to retrieve the BIOS Version.

This is useful for finding out whether your PC is up-to-date with the BIOS revisions provided by the manufacturer.

Command Line

Start your command line, using  Start > Run > Cmd.exe.

Enter the following command:

wmic bios get smbiosbiosversion

Powershell (Local)

Run PowerShell by right clicking the start menu, and clicking Windows PowerShell (Admin) or Windows Terminal (Admin).

Enter the following command:

(Get-WmiObject win32_bios).SMBIOSBIOSVersion

Powershell (Remote)

(Get-WmiObject win32_bios -computer COMPUTERNAME).SMBIOSBIOSVersion
