Question about Computers & Internet
First of all, what conditions exist that you think you need to? If it just shows in a list of updates, skip it. If you are having a specific problem with the BIOS and need to repair it, that is fine. But be careful! Make sure the computer is plugged in to a battery backup (NOT just a surge protector). If the power spikes or goes off while it's upgrading, most likely your motherboard will never run again and no way to repair it. Also, only get the update from HP, not a third party site. As a technician, I never update a BIOS unless it is needed to fix a certain issue, just too risky on most PC's.
