Driver & Firmware Updates on College-owned Dell Computers

Posted April 2nd, 2018 at 9:07 am.

LITS has added a new utility to Dell computers to ensure that drivers, bios, and firmware remain updated.  This is necessary to address security and stability concerns.

Dell Command | Update is configured to check for updates once a month, and may occasionally place a pop up message in the lower right corner of your display. When you see this, please choose to install these updates at your earliest convenience — keep in mind you may be prompted to restart your computer as part of this process.  If you are using a laptop dock, you should plan to stay plugged into the dock while updates are running — the dock will also be updated.

If you receive a new computer or you have received a new configuration (or “image”), you may already see this utility.  Additional computers will see this update in the next few weeks.

Contact the Help Desk with questions: or 610-526-7440.
