You should really specify you question. There is a plenty of computer devices that use a variety of different firmwares. I depends of many things such as CPU, GPU etc. There is no one answer for this question. @Edi tried to describe the most popular units but there is no general answer for such a question.

Firmware for what? Can you make your question a bit more specific? What exactly do you want to know?

Firmware of the computer itself would be the motherboard boot, as stated above the most common ones are BIOS and UEFI.
After that you will need an Operating System to make your computer work, windows being the most common for users, as it is widely known.
For better explanations you would need to say in more detail what you want.
