We are puzzled few times about CMOS and BIOS the reason is that the information may either specify to enter the BIOS setup or the CMOS setup. But the setup is similar of both BIOS and CMOS; both are dissimilar module on the motherboard.

CMOS is the subsidiary of the CMOS battery and in include your system settings and is altered and modified by entering the CMOS setup.

How the computer is booted and is simply modified or updated with BIOS updates this information contains on BIOS on the motherboard. CMOS is the subsidiary of CMOS battery it. After running the CMOS setup it contains system setting and is modified and changed.

Hi user,

To put it simply BIOS is software while CMOS is hardware. BIOS is the information contained in a computer's ROM that is used to boot a computer. It checks if there is any devices connected to the computer and load the drivers for them.

They also contain information on what order to boot devices. They have the settings assigned by the user stored in them that rules the way they boot.

CMOS is a round silver coin that is embedded on the motherboard. It is like a mini clock, by which the computer keep track of the time. It also stores some hardware settings.

It is called a CMOS battery as it has tiny amount power to maintain the clock in it even when the computer is not powered on.
