You need the right BIOS for your PC, f.52 is not for your PC.

Which model do you have?

Your laptop has a BIOS f.02, which is not a CQ50-139WM.

Which model do you have?

Usually you only need to do a BIOS update if you are running into problems, reviewing your posts, the only thing I found was this: monitor keeps switching to duel

Did someone suggest you do a BIOS update to fix the issue? or are you seeing a new issue that you are having trouble resolving?
