anas88, may I ask why you want to update your BIOS? HP's website will provide updates for your BIOS, when looking at the notes for BIOS version you should only update it if you are having problems.

Since a mishap while updating the BIOS will brick your computer, it is only wise to update the BIOS to solve a particular problem you are encountering that is specifically fixed by the uppdate. If you aren't having a problem there's no need to update the BIOS.

Hi anas88,

Are you setting the time & date correctly for your time zone in the bios setup ?

If this is a desktop computer you may need to replace the CMOS battery that holds the memory for the Bios.

It looks like a large watch battery.

If the date falls back to like 2000 that is usually an indication that the battery I show above is failing & needs to be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive, like $2 or $3 US dollars. The most common battery # is a CR-2303.


Edit > CR2032.
