Preferred Solution: Bios Update to latest version

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I want to update my BIOS to the latest version but its soo complicated.

The Asus Update tool is the most disfunctional piece of crap i've ever come across and i've been to the Asus site and downloaded the updates ut dont know how to work them.

I havent got a clue how to do it.

Anyway, i've also had trouble determining my currrent BIOS version.

In my BIOS, it says...

Version: 08.00.09
Build Date: 08/03/04
ID: A0058002

It also says at the bottom...

V02.54 (C) Copyright 1985 - 2003, American Megatrends, Inc.

And in dxdiag window, it says...

BIOS: Rev2.00

Now for f*ck sake, what the bloody hell is that all about???

Anyway, could someone link me to the files I need to update my BIOS to the latest version and how?

Thanks in advance :slurp:

Answer:How do I update my K8V SE Deluxe BIOS to latest version???

not an answer but after this you'll feel better

I followed the complicated steps.

I'm pretty sure I had the right .rom file, And I'm pretty sure I did everything correctly.

Too bad that the system doesn't start at all...Oh the fans turn on. but screen stays blank.

Now I'm wondering is there anything more I can do...or should I just toss that mobo to trash...

hi, i have a lenovo b590 laptop (20208 type) with i3 3110m and nvidia gt720m and whenever i try to update the BIOS using the latest BIOS version available on the lenovo drivers download page , i get the following error: this is the actual BIOS version on the laptop:  how can i update the BIOS on it? i guess the problem is that the allready running BIOS is H1ETXXXX version and on the lenovo drivers download page is only the H9ETXXXX version which i guess isn't compatible with the 20208 version of the laptop and shows the "machine does not match with this bios" error. forgot to mention that my OS is windows 7 x64 on which i tried to run the bios update.  also will this laptop model gonna receive any new bios updates especially regarding the newly discovered intel security flaws or it's completely abandoned allready in terms of support?

I have Acer Aspire 5750G. My current BIOS version is 1.07. The latest version is 1.12.

There are a few versions in between. Should I do incremental updates and reach 1.12 or should I just go direct to 1.12?

Many Thanks!

Answer:BIOS - Incremental updates to latest vrsn or direct update to latest?

Bios updates are cumulative, so you only need the latest.

You also don't need to update the bios unless there is a fix in it/them that fixes an issue you may be having. For the most part updating the bios is as easy as updating a driver, only if a bios update goes wrong you can't roll back to the old and you basically end up with a nice paperweight.

Hi there,

This is something I've seen for the first time: latest BIOS version (that, by chance, I use) disappears from site.

A few months ago I updated the BIOS (HP Insyde) to the latest version: site mentioned this is version F.26 and all went well.
Checked BIOS and System Info: yep is F.26 alright.
I have it backuped. Was released in April - May.

There are no issues at all so far but HP seems to have reverted back to version F.24 as the latest one on the website.
I don't think it's possible to revert back the update because it was mentioned in the change-log but to me this version is stable.

This is the same site and laptop model.
Notice sp60606 for F.24 while the F.26 is called sp61457...

I wonder why they removed it...
Any ideas on this one? Anyone else seen this or similar on their machines?

Well, since all functions normally I'll keep this F.26 version and check their site regularly just in case.


Answer:BIOS latest version

Maybe they pulled it because of this discovered issue when certain hardware configurations were trying (unsuccessfully) to update to F.26:

Answer:Which is the latest BIOS version for Satellite L30-113 (PSL 33)?

First of all the BIOS update is not necessary if your notebook functions correctly.

But back to your questions;
On the Toshiba European driver page you will find all available drivers and also the newest available BIOS. At this time it seems to be a 3.10-WIN version

How to find out the BIOS version?
This is very easy? you have to access the BIOS and then you could see the BIOS version.
To access the BIOS you have to press the F2 button immediately after notebook was started.

I have the same problem.  My machine is Envy x360 M6-AQ105DX Convertible.  It started the day before yeserday.
I had F.21 installed, and Support Assistant notified me to upgrade to F23, 12/23/16.  I did so, and it worked. 
Then Suppoert Assistant said I needed another BIOS upgrade to F.23 Ap1 1/12/17.  I installed it, but it just re-installed F.23.  I tried it twice with the same result.
Today, it is still saying I need an updated BIOS (F.23 Ap1),  So I went to  the HP site and it said the latest BIOS is F,23 Rev 1 dated 1/12/17.  I downloaded the SP file SP78934.exe and installed the BIOS yet again.  It reinstalled F23, 12/23/16.
Support Assistant is still showing that a newer BIOS is available.
Someone needs to tell HP that they have the wrong SP file associated with the new BIOS.

I have an HP Compaq 6910p with BIOS F.19 and a T7300 processor.  Looking at possible upgrades I have three questions: 1) Is F.19 the last BIOS level for these?  If not what is the latest BIOS level and where can I find it? 2) I see Core 2 Extreme X9000 support was added in F.13 - is that the fastest possible processor? 3) Can you confirm the maximum memory for these is 8GB (not 4GB as stated in the spec.)? ThanksDave

Answer:6910p latest BIOS version and faster supported processor

Right now HP is reworking its support websites to the service manual is not accessible. I was able to access the driver page and can confirm F.19 was the last issued BIOS. F.13 just says added support for additional Intel processors; I cannot find a list of which. Debatable whether you are better off with something like a T9x00 with higher clock speed or the Quad Core. I would guess that if it takes a Quad Core processor it can also run 8 gigs of DDR2, but 8 gigs of DDR2 costs about $100 and not sure that is a justified investment in a laptop that still has posted Windows 2000 drivers it is so old.  These classic Windows Xp era HP/Compaq business notebooks are great, rugged machines and I can understand wanting to keep it going, however.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

Why doesn't Lenovo make older BIOS versions available for download?
I am trying to upgrade to the latest, but the version I downloaded says it is not for my laptop even though I am on the downloads page for my specific make/model.  Scouring the Internet, I have discovered that there are, in fact, several versions between what is currently on my laptop (v1.05) and the most current version availble for download.
All of the prior versions I have discovered are downloadable, but from other, untrusted, sources.  I would appreciate being able to download them directly from Lenovo in an effort to "roll up" my BIOS, version by verion if necessary, to the current one.
There is a feature that was introduced in v2.02 (locking the Fn key, current is v2.03) that, as a developer and prolific user of debugging tools, would be incredibly helpful for me (I use F10/F11 WAY more often than brightness controls).  It is somewhat ridiculous it was never in prior versions.  (I have a 10-year-old keyboard at my desk that can lock the Fn key, but I'm not always at my desk).
Please do not respond with posts that I don't need this version.  You will not receive any "Correct Answers" this way.
Thank you!

Upgraded the BIOS on my G50-45 (latest version of windows 10).  Upgraded to BIOS version AZCN38WW version 2.06.  Bluetooth stopped working right after the BIOS update.  Uninstalled and then re-installed the Atheros bluetooth drivers with no succcess.  If I shut the system down (power off) and then power on, the bluetooth icon shows in the tool bar and will run for about a minute before failing again.  Can anyone help me get my bluetooth working again? If I revert to the original BIOS will that fix the problem. If it will, where can I find the original version of the BIOS which would be the last one prior to 2.06?  Thanks.

Answer:Upgraded G50-45 bios to latest version. Blue tooth stopped working

hi jlongobardo,
Welcome to the Forums.
If you look into the Device Manager, do you see a Bluetooth entry when the bluetooth stops working?
If the Bluetooth entry is visible under Device Manager, can you try to Disable/Enable the device and observe.
If the Bluetooth entry is missing under Device Manager, try the following:
1. Shutdown the machine and remove the battery and AC adapter.
2. Press and hold the power button for 20secs to remove any residual power on the machine.
3. Plugin the AC adapter and power up the machine then continuously tap F2 to boot into the BIOS. Once in the BIOS, hit F9 to reload defaults then hit F10 to save and exit.
4. Once the machine boots back into Windows, check if the Bluetooth functionality is now working and stable.
If the above steps doesn't work then your problem might be similar to this thread and the problem might be with the BIOS update.
The old version of the BIOS that you're looking for is (A2CN36WW) 2.04 and doing a backflash may work and fix the problem as another user have done this step. If you don't have a backup copy of the old BIOS then I would recommend you contact the lenovo helpdesk to investigate what's going on

If this is about the mobile version then yes it does appear to get stuck for a while before jumping forward rapidly. Give it sometime and be connected to the internet during the entire period. If it still doesn't progress then you might have to start fresh, i.e. rollback to 8.1 stock and then upgrade to 10.

Updating doesn't lose that info. It's in your FF Profile. In FF, just go to Help>About FF and Update occurs automatically. Bookmarks can always be saved on a detachable medium. Also, your backups, if you do them save all your personal data.

Hello, I've installed UFT 12.02 on my laptop (Win 8.1) which has java version 8 update 65. After installing UFT, I tried to execute few scripts. After sometime noticed that Java console is erased. Later tried to download latest version of Java but couldn't. is UFT 12.02 compatible with higher versions of Java (8 and above) Thanks,SB

Answer:Is latest version of Java (8 update 65) compatible with UFT ...

Partial SOLUTION. I kept having problems with the setup or Java re-install aborting (something like a 1608 error...) The ultimate workaround, was to DELETE the JRE folder under HP/HPE's  UFT directory (since UFT was using it's own JRE that somehow conflicted with other JAVA installs) -- -AND- I removed all the ENVIRONMENT variables that dealt with "JAVA".   After that the JAVA setup would work without failure. Getting UFT install back so that it doesn't clobber the JAVA8 is the next step...

Hi guys, I just want to post an issue that I'm experiencing for your reference. My P50 machine is docked and connected with an external display. When its bios is upgraded to the latest two version, i.e. version 1.39 or 1.40, it cannot be started up properly at docking condition. The external display is dark, while the LCD display seems stuck at "LENOVO" screen. I am unable to access the bios mode at that time. However, when I undock the machine, it begins to start up and ultimately enters  Windows. Then I dock it back, everything works well. I restart the machine and it can also start up properly to Windows. But if I try a "cold" startup, the issue comes back. Now I downgrade the machine to bios version 1.38 and everything works fine. I figure that there could be something wrong with the latest two version of bios. If you want to upgrade your bios and you have the similar configuration as I have, please be aware that you might experience the issue. BRJin

Reading around, it seems the state of things at Microsoft has changed drastically since W10 was announced.

Most frighteningly they changed the name of the updater and left this article to depreciate
"Note The latest version of the Windows Update Agent for Windows 8.1 is 7.9.9600.16422. The latest version of the Windows Update Agent for Windows 8 is 7.8.9200.16693. The latest version of the Windows Update Agent for Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP is 7.6.7600.256."

Horrifyingly that is still the top result for Windows Update Client because everything sucks.

Anyways so from my understanding, it seems that reinstalling windows 7 will result in the updater trying to update to 7.6.7600.320 which is a horrible update that eats memory and takes three times longer to update.

So one should manually update the updater to the latest version before doing anything on a fresh install of windows 7. But where is one to go to find the latest version? Microsoft seemingly helps with this but does not, and instead deceives as I have explained above.

Anyways, is there a better way than using google to search these forums to find out?

I recently upgraded/updated Windows 10 Home with the Nov/Dec 2015 update version ?1511?.

File associations for Web Browser and Music have always been Firefox and VLC
Player respectively, i.e. .htm files open in Firefox and .mp3 files open in VLC.

However, since the update version ?1511?, every time I zip an mp3 file with WinZip, the file associations for Web Browser get removed and local .htm web pages get associated with Microsoft Edge, and mp3 files get associated with Groove. I then have to manually reset files back to Firefox and VLC through Settings / System / Default Apps and/or use Open With / always use this app to open this type of file.

Similarly, if I zip an .htm file with Winzip, then .htm files get changed from being associated with Firefox and become associated with Microsoft Edge [but mp3 files do not lose their association with VLC in this instance].

This behaviour did not occur before the major update version ?1511?.

Is anyone aware of what is happening here? Thanks.

Answer:htm & mp3 file associations change since latest update version “1511”

I would say do not use WinZip. There are other options.

Right... So here I am trying to perform miracles with a XFX/NVidia board again. I'm running out of hair to pull out, but I can't afford to get another one right now.

I'm sure the whole world knows that XFX and NVidia aren't buddies anymore, and I know that XFX skimped on the processor TDP ratings to 'save money', but I'm not sure if this problem is a faulty BIOS from XFX or if my chip is failing.. Anybody else still running this board? Perhaps someone can give a second opinion here...

Currently I'm running the v1.6 BIOS, the latest is v1.7. My PC doesn't have any problems with 1.6, I was just trying to see if I could get a Phenom II 740 BE to work on this board. The BIOS flashes without any problems, no errors or warnings or suspicious beeps.. But then the two-digit diagnostic LED on the board goes haywire with 1.7, with 1.6 it shows normal alpha-numeric codes, but on 1.7 the lines are completely mixed up and don't make any legible numbers or letters.

I must admit, other than that, I haven't found any problems.. My 740 BE still didn't work, but I'm not sure if that was also because of the BIOS or not. Has anybody else perhaps tried this BIOS yet...? If not, and you're comfortable with it, could you try it and see? I had no issues flashing back to 1.6 after trying 1.7, so you don't have to worry about being stuck on it if you don't like it...

Hello I would like to ask:I updated my BIOS last night to the latest version. I am on Windows 10, HP Envy x360. I updated it sucessfully and I am not facing any issues as of now. I wasn't facing one before I updated. Everything was going smoothly but I saw in the HP Support Assistant that I have numerous things to update so I clicked it all & updated. When the BIOS finished installing the computer restarted and I continued updating the others (which included the BIOS internal) but in the middle of the update, I stopped it. And it said it's not applicable anymore. I clicked to update again & the other 3 (there was 4 of them including the BIOS internal) updated succesfully. I even contacted support at that same night to let them do the manual update to give me a peace of mind. The technician said I updated it correctly. But what I read on everyp site on the internet that not to update the BIOS. So I am worrying & scared right now because my laptop might encounter problems that weren't there before the update.

Answer:Latest bios update help (dv6700)

Hi: Yes, F.34 is the latest BIOS version and if you have that installed, good. I am going to save you from having to strip your notebook for parts and tossing it in the trash if you try to flash the BIOS after you installed Windows 7. DON'T FLASH THE BIOS IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED WINDOWS 7. There will be a 100% chance of totally bricking your notebook if you do. Below is the link to the support and driver page for your specific notebook model. As long as the BIOS in your PC is at F.27 or newer, there is no reason that you can't install 4 GB of memory in your notebook right now. I have a dv6810us with the same hardware as yours and I am running W7 64 bit with 4 GB of memory (2 x 2GB of PC2-6400), and it works just fine. If you ever need to flash the BIOS (which you shouldn't ever need to), you will need to reinstall Vista, flash it, and reinstall W7.

Latest BIOS updated are always offered on official Toshiba support page so if you cannot find it there probably it doesn?t exist.

As far as I know Toshiba doesn?t offer any kind of Linux support so all offered stuff is for Windows. All offered BIOS updates are WIN versions so it can be started under running Windows OS and I don?t know how you can do it using Linux.

The ?bios agent plus program? is an 3rd part software and not Toshiba certified application.

Furthermore the all latest BIOS updates for Toshiba EU notebook models can be downloaded from the Toshiba EU driver page.

I checked this page and the BIOS 2.30 is the latest BIOS released for this model and this means that your BIOS is already up to date.

Few months back I got a Lenovo ThinkPad P40, it has been working just fine untill the latest BIOS update from Lenovo Companion (R05ET72W 1.50).  Since I use it for work, it is connected to power all the time. I have disabled Sleep & hibernation when plugged-in. When I leave the workstation, I usually just lock the machine (Win + L), so that I can access the laptop from home.  After the latest BIOS update, when I get back to work in the morning, ThinkPad does not wake up no mater what button I press. Opening the lid, shows a black screen, does not respond to anything. The red light on the "ThinkPad" logo is lit.  All I can do is hold the power button for 5 sec and re-power. This is horrible, as it will sonner or later corrupt my Windows installation.  I've had to do this now 3 days in a row, after the BIOS update.  I've updated all drivers and ran Windows 10 update. The EventViewer shows only this:"The previous system shutdown at 5:56:01 AM on ?11/?5/?2017 was unexpected." But I ran the force shut-down at 8:30 AM...

Has anyone with this board tried this bios update? I believe the version # is 2205. Is it mainly important just for upgrading to the new 5th. Gen. processors or, is there benefits for the 4th. Gen. i7 4790k also? Thanks!

Answer:latest bios update for asus z97-a motherboard Questions

I own the Asus Z97-A motherboard and my instruction manual says not to upgrade the BIOS if my system is running smoothly. The manual clearly states to upgrade BIOS only when you have to, thus I have never upgraded my BIOS.

After successfully updating my BIOS with the latest from HP I completely borked the BIOS by fiddling around with the settings. Push 'power on' 6 long beeps no video. Then a thought came back from the dim recesses of my mind from the dawn of time...that is about 5 years ago. I carefully(!) pulled the side cover of the machine and extra carefully removed the CMOS Battery (CR2032) and let it sit for 5 minutes. Reassemble, power on, successful boot. Remember this trick so you can tell your wait they'll be quantum computing by telepathy...hmm.

Hi everyone,I have a severe problem (I guess) after the latest BIOS Update. Windows 7 freezes during startup.I own a 64-bit Lenovo FLex 2 15D with AMD A6-6310 and R4, 4GB RAM and a SSHD (8GBSSH). I purchased it without OS and installed Windows 7 - which worked fine so far.I yesterday updated the BIOS with version 9FCN23WW (for Win7 and Win8), the latest BIOS update. A mistake, it seems.After Reboot, I first had to disable Secure Boot in the BIOS, because it would not let me boot at all. I figured out how to get into the BIOS-Setup to disable this (press Enter 2x, press Tab when in the Boot Menu to access the "Apps Menu", then "SETUP" - just in case this helps someone).Now Win7 begins to start up, but freezes during the startup process (the splash screen with the win flag freezes and looks a bit strange. I used the "protected mode" Windows Startup and saw that the process always hangs when loading "amdkmpfd.sys".That is basically it.I guess I have to find a way to re-install the previous version of the BIOS, but I have no idea how!Any idea?!.......Now about what I did to fix this (poor, but I tried):If I try to start from a Win7 installation CD-ROM (actually it is one for Dell PCs, but I guess that is not the problem) and press a key to boot from CD, Windows loads files, shows "Starting Windows"  and at a certain point again just freezes. When I -do not- press a key, WIndows Boot Manager shows up and mentions that "Windows failed to start (etc.)" "File: \EFI\Microsoft\Boo... Read more

Answer:Boot Fail after latest BIOS Update on Flex 2-15D

I found our the solution to my problem with the help of SebastianLenovo ... In the BIOS / Boot Mode, I switched back from "UEFI" to "Legacy". That's it. That simple. The BIOS Upgrade routine just did not transfer that setting from the old BIOS to the new. Given the fact that 1. I did not change that setting, so it is default and 2. it would have been easy to avoid, if the BIOS update routine would be well programmed to transfer the current BIOS settings to the new, upgraded BIOS ... Anyway a strange situation that a 64-bit system has a 32-bit BIOS. Actually no Linux distribution (except FatDog and rescue systems) are able to deal with it - Linux only running as a Virtual Machine under Windows. I think this is inappropriate and really taking away a part of the fun if you can not run this laptop as a dual boot system. Thanks to Sebastian and I hope this solution helps someone in the future... Regards, Tristam.

This post is primarily focused on Fruitbat because he posted the link which has taken me to this point in my saga but anyone is welcome to join in especially if they have a knowledge of Dos.
I followed the instructions in the link you posted and successfully booted from CD and while in Dos told the computer to open the BIOSUPDATE. EXE file. I then got a long list of type which appeared to be lots of instructions for example "update microcode". It finished with a list of four options the last one being: answer YES to any prompt. I presume these instructions were not meant for my immediate use but were part of the update. Then everything stopped. I did not know what to do next. How could I get those instructions up and running? After a while I tried typing 'yes' but it just moved to the next line: nothing happened. So what I need to know is what response do I need to give to make the programme execute all the instructions it listed?
When copying the files onto the boot disc I only copied BIOSUPDATE.EXE. I noticed there was an Autoexec batch file which I ignored. Should I have copied it to the boot disc as well. I just feel I am close to resolving the issue, it is just that I lack the final expertese.
Can you help, Fruitbat?

I recently updated the BIOS on my z30c pt263e as per advice from the toshiba update application installed on my PC.

Since that update, my LAN (wireless) and bluetooth have been behaving abnormally, including:
Connecting to various wireless networks, but not being able to access the internet. In order to do so, I have to do a wireless troubleshoot in windows, which resets the wifi adapter, then it works againIf I switch between networks (say a wireless, to a hotspot wireless on my phone) it does the same thing. Will connect to the network, but not access the internet, necessitating the same resetBluetooth has started to work abnormally at the same time, including saying my bluetooth keyboard is paired, but it won't recognise any input from my keyboard.

I've since downloaded and reinstalled both the LAN and Bluetooth drivers from the Toshiba website. This has NOT fixed the problem.

If toshiba is not aware or not going to do anything about this, can someone please post a link to the previous BIOS version (which isn't available when I search on the EU support site) so I can at least verify if it was the BIOS update causing the problem

I have a Dell XPS 9550 laptop, and I've recently made two BIOS updates. The one 1.3.something, and now I have 1.4.0
They both had the same terrible issue.
It seems like the processor cooling policy is completely broken.
My laptop's fans never go to silent mode now. They always run, with pretty high speed and noise. Even when CPU is totally idle, or loaded on about 1-5%
Before these updates my Dell never ever turned on the fans with this kind of CPU load, staying completely silent.

If this is BIOS's issue, I'd like to ask Dell engineers to fix it and push new update.
If there is anything I can do myself to fix it, I would highly appreciate any help.
Thank you!

Answer:XPS 15, latest BIOS update ruined the cooling system.

Below are what those two BIOS addressed. I do not see anything specifically dealing with cooling.
XPS_9550_1.4.0.exe9/15/171. Fixes system defense with wireless parameter will cause ME failure2. System stability enhancements3. To prevent user update ME Firmware to blacklist 11.6 ME firmware 4. Correct error message in Excalibur5. Fix Bitlocker issue on Win7 ultimate/enterprise
XPS_9550_1.3.0.exe8/28/171. Enhance dock's audio performance
You can try to down flash to 1.2.29. But, the system may not let you. It might say you have a newer BIOS and not allow it. Give it a shot.
XPS_9550_1.2.29.exe8/1/171. Fixed a potential security issue with Bootguard code integrity chaining enforcement".2. Fixed a potential security issue with the Support Assist PreBoot feature3. Updated processor microcode4. Update Computrace 9575. Support Win10 RS2 Enterprise6. Enhance NVME support and reduce noise
