DO I have latest bios and how to update

Question: DO I have latest bios and how to update

My bios version is J01 V02.24 When I check on the HP bios downloads I see there is a v02.29 available. But when I try to download and install the install assistant says it may not have installed, try again. When I try again, I dont get a message at all. But if I check system bios is still shows v02.24 I dont understand how to flash the bios and am apprehensive about messing the bios up. Is there a utility that checks and updates or any other way for the novice to upgrade bios without blowing the computer up? Appeciate any help or advice on this. Below is my system bios settings, if that helps any.

Preferred Solution: DO I have latest bios and how to update

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Greetings!

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.

Answer:Latest bios update help (dv6700)

Hi, @Reddwarf4ever : Yes, I would imagine if the BIOS update bricks the notebook on W7, the same would apply to W10 as well. You already have the latest BIOS installed which is F.34, so you don't have to be concerned. http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/HP-Pavilion-dv6800-Entertainment-Notebook-PC-series/...

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. I am regretting my decision, I am not a techy person and I don't understand the computer world very well yet I decided to update without knowing first what it was. I am very scared of what might happen because of my carelessness.My questions are:1. Will updating the latest version of the BIOS without any problems in the hardware or anything (it was running smoothly, I just recently purchased it) harm the laptop or give problems to the laptop?2.

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 have recently upgraded my OS to Windows 7 on my Pavillion Notebook, which is a dv6700, with product number KW097EA#UUW, and with an AMD processor. Its bios version is F.34, and I would like to know if it's the latest bios. Unfortunately I cannot find my computer model on the website, so I'm needing your help.

View Solution.

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. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3717145&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&os=228&query=KW097EA&sw_lang=&tool= 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.

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

In my BIOS, it says...

It also says at the bottom...

And in dxdiag window, it says...

BIOS: Rev2.00

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

Hi, can anybody tell me which is the latest possible BIOS version for Satellite L300 11M? The drivers page only gives me v.1.50 as an option, but I see that other L300 models have ver. 2.20. Can I use 2.20 for L300 11m or download some other version from somewhere?
The reason I ask is that I want to try to update my CPU. Yes, I know it's not recommended, but as long as it is possible, I want to try. However, I've been told that my laptop model BIOS will only recognize CPUs with up to 3MB cache. That's why I need more up to date BIOS.

First of all why are there so many BIOS updates in a short time? I get my brand new L40-17S (20/05/08) with the BIOS 1.70, the Tempro software from Toshiba give me the warning to update it to 1.80 that works fine, after a few day's a new warning update it to 1.90 and now 2.00 in June! The problem is that I can't update anymore above 1.80, when I click on the winflash.exe only a short screen and then nothing.

I am trying to upgrade the current bios (v1.60) to the latest (v2.10) I downloaded P0054v210.exe but when I try to run it I get the error 'BIOS update is not supported OS....' I have tried XP compatible mode but still no luck. I don't want to have to reinstall XP if possible.

I read elsewhere that installing the Value Added Pack would work but it was already installed. I have now unistalled the VAP and installed it again with no errors reported. Still can't run P0054V210.exe.

However, when I try to run HW Setup from the Toshiba Utilities folder on the Start menu I get "HCI Load Error!!" followed by "SCI Load Error!!" but it then puts up a Setup dialoge box with "General" tab with details of the current Bios version. I have uninstalled and re-installed twice and still get the same problem.

Answer:Re: Need latest BIOS update for my Satellite A660

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

Answer:I need the latest BIOS update for Satellite A660 PSAW3E

>And every time i run bios agent plus program he show me that there is a newer bios update

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.

Lat but not least Toshiba provide own sofware called Toshiba Service Station and this tool notifies you about the real latest updates

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.
Fruitbat,
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?

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.

I think your problem is twofold. You used a third-party non-supported flash utility, and you used the windows flash file. Download the CD rom image BIOs update from the Lenovo webstie, burn it to a disk and reflash your system. It will ask you if you want to update the machine type and serial number, answer yes and enter the information as it appears on the case of the A70.

I updated the BIOS yesterday and after using it today, i realised that the laptop was heating up, even though i wasn't playing any games. Just watching some videos on youtube using Microsoft Edge. The bottom side of the laptop, the one below the keyboard, felt hotter than usual. Same for the part right above the fan, one where the power button is. Never had an issue before the update as it never used to get hot enough for me to feel it unless I was playing a heavy game. It only gets better if I use the extreme cooling feature, but that shouldn't be the case for regular browsing. Could this BIOS update be the reason for my laptop heating up? Please help.

Hello, dear Lenovo users. Today, a few hours ago, I decided to update my bios via the following:http://mobilesupport.lenovo.com/in/hi/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-z-series-laptops/ideapad... After updating, the computer restarted and then suddenly something very unusual displayed on the screen: "Loading files.." with a progressbar, then afterwards the Lenovo logo showed up trying to boot into OneKey Recovery. I assure you that I had all the programs closed, and encountered no issues when I first ran this update. It automatically caused me to restart and began updating. How do I fix this issue? I have really important files in this laptop and I do not want to restore my data to its initial state. I do not mind restoring everything to the very beginning but I need my data for work.

Answer:Z510 - Latest Bios update caused automatic booting to OneKey Recovery

Oh dear. I managed to access the bios by spamming my F2 key, changing the boot mode from UEFI to Legacy, exiting saving changes and then it stopped looping into OneKey Recovery. Afterwards I restarted my computer and entered the bios, changed the boot mode back to UEFI and it still worked. Unusual, but at least it worked. Just incase if anyone encounters this issue as I did, this might help solve it.

Try checking in a bootable Linux environment to see if it happens there. If it does, it's probably the BIOS, which you can revert to an earlier version. If it doesn't happen, try installing the latest Intel chipset package as found from Intel's Download Center.

I am trying to get this Yoga 14 up to date.  First, I was surprised that runs Windows 10 home vs. pro but that is what it is. However here is my question. The bios on the unit as shipped is 1.2 and is from the JFET43WW family. The latest bios listed is 1.3 from the R05ETxxW family (per the readme) and the filename is r05uj03ww.  Perhaps this is Lenovo's way, but all the prior bios history for that family is under JFETxxWW. Is this the right bios? The latest NIVIDA/Intel driver listed states that " *This driver can be only used on ThinkPad S3 Yoga 14 Broadwell(BIOS ID:JFETxxWW)". So.....can the latest video driver be used with the latest bios which per the readme (and filename) is NOT from the JFETxxWW family? Hopefully I am posting in the right place.  I have been underwhelmed with phone support where "hardware" support will only answer hardware questions and "software support" is "premium" and they want you to pay when this system is only a week old.  Not sure where else to go for answers.  Also have issues with expresscache as....well..they shipped it with windows 10 and with an SSD and no expresscache.  But that is another post.... Thanks, BJB

I bought a Dell XPS 8900 about a year ago and have had 0 issues with the setup. Tonight, the SupportAssist Dell App popped up saying my system needed critical system updates. Listed was a BIOS update (don't recall the version number). I let it install and update the BIOS but now my computer goes from the black and white DELL logo screen to a support assist white screen that appears because I have removed a fan in order to install a Radeon Fury X. I usually have to hit escape from that screen to load windows but instead the boot process starts all over again and I go back to the black and white DELL logo screen and the process stays in this endless loop. I have loaded the BIOS options and it says 2.1.10 as the BIOS version. I have tried to both use BIOS restore and Downgrade BIOS but nothing works and my system refuses to boot Windows. Is there an older BIOS version I can manually flash to correct this issue? I have had no issues with anything prior to updating the BIOS so can only assume that is the culprit. Perhaps an incorrect or corrupt BIOS upgrade? I let the computer do its thing and had no power outage, <profanity> thing just refuses to boot Windows. I cannot even get safe mode to come up (if I am using the proper keyboard command that is).

I googled the issue and found that this could mean my system reserved partition is full and indeed that is what I found. My C: drive is a 500 GB SSD but the system partition is only 100 MB of which only 3 MB is free.

MS web page has a long convoluted command line "fix" for this (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3086249) but I was wondering why I couldn't just "shrink" the main C: drive partition and then "extend" the system partition using diskmgmt.msc.

Or is there a better way?

Answer:latest update failed - can't update system reserved partition

Hello Ray Lo,

Yes, potentially you can do this... But I would suggest backup of your SSD, before you try to do anything as such... WRT shrinking and moving partitions! Just in case!

One extra step enforcing security does no hurt, does it?

In preparation for Win 10 key I updated the BIOS on an E520 using the Lenovo Service Bridge.  Os is Win 7 64-bit.  LSB showed old BIOS was backed up. Old bios   LENOVO 8HET30WW(1.12) New bios LENOVO 8HET44WW(1.26) Now bootup and windows start up are painfully slow.  Further there is a black screen in the middle of the wake up process. How can I undo the BIOS update to revert back to Old bios   LENOVO 8HET30WW(1.12)? Or can anything be tweaked to improve the bootup time?

Answer:E520 slows/black screen after BIOS update. Can I undo BIOS update?

Hello and welcome,
 
The older versions of the BIOS are located at the bottom of the download page:

I downloaded an optional update for my laptop wireless connection this morning (there seems to be one every month for the Realtek Wirless LAN). My wireless connection now no longer works despite everything. I assume the best thing to do is use the pre installation system restore point?

Answer:Latest Realtek Wireless Update via Windows update

Yes, Realtek are not great @ writing drivers. Good hardware requires good code. They have the same issues with the high def. sound drivers.

Not sure when the latest store app update came through, sometime this week but only jus back from hols. Noticed that when checking for updates it now always has a 1 next to the arrow indicating one is available for some app. But there is nothing showing, anyone else notice this? If you manually check get updates and then wait for cycle to finish. Then click on another tab in the app such as home and it'll then always appear. But clicking on it yields no pending updates or updates in motion

Seen this on both our machines across all user accounts

Answer:Latest store update always has 1 next to arrow but no update availble

Same thing is occurring on my machine as well. Just started recently. Can make the "1" disappear by resetting the Store App, but it always keeps coming back.

Hello everyone I have a problem updating my windows to version 1703 (Currently on 1607). What happened was on my PC there was an update available and decided to update after it restarted I got the screen "working on updates" So I decided to leave it there for a while and did something else when I came back all I saw was a black screen the PC wasn't like restarting or anything. I waited 30 minutes and nothing has changed just black screen so I decided to force turn off my PC and turn it on again my PC was checking for repairs then went back to updating when it got to 87% the update just froze like nothing was moving at all not even the loading thing it's just literally froze I waited an hour and nothing so unfortunately I forced turned off my PC and it restored back to the previous version I look through the update history it says I have updated the windows 10 creators update privacy settings? which was the one I failed and I looked at the version I was and it's still 1607 (screenshots below) and when I try to update it says it's up to date. I am kinda panicking a little and was wondering why is this happening to my gaming computer.

Oh by the way I went to troubleshooting and this is what I got a lot of errors

Update:I ran troubleshooter again and got the same thing "Repair Windows Update Database Corruption" Dang this makes me more panicking. Honestly, I hope this really gets fixed

Answer:Windows Update Failed To Install Latest Update

Hi, just a note on that most recent update:
Upgrading to Creators Update requires installing KB4013214

It seems like the download failed.

Given your repairs, an excellent start, I'd suggest you do this by way of basic checks:
From an admin command prompt
[Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
chkdsk C: /F
Your PC will need to restart.
Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!
Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.

Then from an admin prompt run
sfc /scannow

and post the result (not the whole log).

I would recommend you MANUALLY download the Creator's Upgrade.

Why?
- it lets you create a useful bootable medium with some repair features
- you can use it to do a future clean install or in-place upgrade
- if the upgrade fails, you can repeat it without downloading again.
Download Windows 10 ISO File - Windows 10 Installation Upgrade Tutorials

Now, once you are happy with your disk and integrity of your Windows, please take this precautionary step:
Download and use Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot disk - and you will need a large external disk or similar
and create a disk image (in particular, option Windows Backup).

Then do the upgrade using the iso you have downloaded.
When you upgrade, disconnect any unnecessary peripherals, esp. wireless mouse.

If you end up with an unbootable PC you can then restore it exactly as it was.

Please be aware that if you use lenovo update software updating the latest ATI catalyst driver, you may get blue screen crash constantly on windows xp sp2 platform.I recently had encountered this problem on my Thinkpad T60  (X1400 graphic), after several blue screens, I did a fresh system resotre to manufacture state, run all patches and still got the same error.  I finally decided to caputre the whole memory dump and used the windows debugger to trace the file, this is the error message I got in the debuggerBUCKET_ID: 0x7f_d_ati2mtag+102550?I immediately realize that this is cauesd by my latest update from lenovo a week ago. I uninstalled all ATI entries in ADD/Remove software, and restart the windows in normal mode. When windows find new hardware just let windows download the driver from web, so far it solved the problem.Lenovo should do a better job than just shove a copy of ATI driver to the update repository without test it.Also, if you use lenovo system update software updating any one or any combination of the following software: wireless card driver/hot key driver/access connection software, please do not expect it will work right after you run the update. In most castes, your fn+f5 is gonna to break or your access connection cannot load. If you need to update those, just uninstall all of the above components first , restart and use system update to update all of the above in one batch..This problem almost exists from the day one i got my thinkpad, an...

Hello to the BleepingComputer community,First of all I'm sorry I haven't finished some of the steps from the Preparation Guide. It's because these steps require a reboot (e.g. Step 6: Disable your CD Emulation Software - DeFogger will ask me to reboot the machine), and I have a bad feeling about the question if it is safe to reboot in my situation: I'm not sure if I have a type of malware which is ready to infect the BIOS - if it is so, then it could infect it much easier during the reboot process.- If there is a good way to find out what is the problem (and fix the BIOS threat part if it really is present) without rebooting / shutting down this PC, or at least without booting from this hard drive (which I feel is probably infected), then please tell me what should I do.- If you know a place / forum where I can get a specialized help for this (seemingly BIOS-malware related) situation, please tell me where I could go.- If there is no way to move forward, I'll go ahead and risk the reboot, and follow the other steps (steps 6 to 10) in the Preparation Guide, no problem.I kindly ask you to please read below the details of the problem as it occured to me, and the things I have tried so far.The PC is AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core BE-2350 2.1GHz, Motherboard Biostar TA690G AM2 (with AWARD BIOS), 4GB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, and an ASUS EAH4870 card added a few years ago.It's with WinXP SP3, AVG Free 2012, (standard) Windows Firewall, and it's behind a router.I ...

If nothing shows in update history, try clicking on 'uninstall updates'. Sometimes this list is more complete. Having said that, I have nothing new in either list.

Clarification, please! I've been told on this forum that I should upgrade the BIOS for my Pavilion g6-1d21dx to version F.48, which seems to be the latest one available on the product page. However, the BIOS currently on my machine is version F.49. Wouldn't F.49 be newer than F.48? Can anyone explain the discrepancy and tell me if there are any meaningful differences between the two BIOS versions?

95% of the time that I use my T440p, I boot from a Windows To Go USB 3.0 stick that is Windows 8.1 based.  My native hard drive is the default Win 8 from Lenovo.  After updating to the latest BIOS (i.e., 2.19), which I believe is supposed to address the USB 3.0 issue, I still am getting the prompt/message to "Keep the USB drive plugged in" and to only remove it after the PC has shut down, etc.  When this message is shown, I have never observed a loss of functionality. Thoughts? I'm on the High Performance power option,  and have the USB selective suspend setting disabled, and also changed the USB 3.0 setting in the BIOS to Enabled instead of Auto after the BIOS update. Should I go back to Auto?

Answer:Latest BIOS and USB 3.0 Issues... Still?

Yes! But I seem to be having a different issue.Since update 2.18, my external (USB 3.0) HDD disconnects/reconnects/disconnects/reconnects/repeat.. I've tried the Windows 8.1 registery settings (PID/VID numbers) and disabled selective suspend.This was a persistent issue PRE 2.18/2.19 but it is far more frequent, now. Based on the release notes, I would have thought this Bios version would have fixed this

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-P61-S3 (rev. 2.0)

Ive managed to update/flash (its the same thing?) my bios from F5 to F7 version within an utility provided by motherboard manufacturer called @BIOS ( you can find it on the same support and download section ). I had 3 options to update: from server, file or drive and I choosed the 1st one. The latest F8 version is no longer BETA but I couldnt upgrade to it at least not from server and I think I really need this since its more than half an year ahead of the previous.

However I downloaded the F8 files from manufacturer page , unpacked them and I had 3 files : one windows BATCH file "autoexec"
one aplication "Efiflash" and the F8 file p62s3.f8( I guess I need to put it on a flash drive ) .While atempting to run the 1st one I got the unsupported 16-bit aplication, with Efiflash something similar " this app cant run on this pc" message from windows 8.
So should I put them on a flash drive and then from bios menu to enter Q-flash and select update from drive or maybe doing the same witht hat utility I mentioned above? I have a Sandisk cruzer blade 16 gb.Is this good for this operation?

Answer:Cant upgrade to the latest BIOS

efiflash is a DOS utility. You'd want to prepare a bootable DOS USB drive and run it from that.

I'm not familiar with Qflash, but if it's equivalent to Asus' EZ Flash, that would be the simpler way to do it. I wonder whether you'd need to add the right file extension to the actual BIOS file. (For most Asus boards, the extension is .rom, but for some it's .cap.)

I'd suggest that that you read the manual, but I don't see anything about BIOS updates in the downloadable version. Shame.
