HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS (Basic Input Output System)

This document is for HP and Compaq notebook computers.
Download and install updates to the computer BIOS. This process is also known as 'flashing the BIOS'.
Updating the BIOS should only be done when:
  • An available BIOS update resolves a specific issue or improves computer performance.
  • The current BIOS does not support a hardware component or a Windows upgrade.
  • HP support recommends installing a specific BIOS update.
For business computers, your company IT department or local IT service might manage BIOS settings. Confirm this if you cannot access BIOS settings or install updates.
  caution:
Only install BIOS updates from HP. Installing the BIOS incorrectly can prevent the computer from starting or being recovered. If your computer is managed by an IT service, contact them for the correct update process.
