Hello twojb7

Unless you are having an issue that only a bios update can fix I would quit while you still have a working system.

Bios updates are easy for those of us that do them regularly but if something goes wrong or you install a corupt file your laptop is off to HP for the next 8~12 weeks.

If it ait broke...well you know the rest.
