Re: Consumer Notebooks and Windows 8 - Overview of BIOS updates

My hp 650 windows 8 can't boot completely again. It displays. If I format it, how possible is it for me to update my drivers again?

Sorrry that means nothing to me. I am not a tech. I need something to fix the instability of my Windows 8 64 bit. I have a Pavilian laptop Product ID {Personal Information Removed}

There are two types of BIOS updates.

 

Windows 8 BIOS updates for the most recently shipping Windows 7 systems will support UEFI 2.3.1. Such systems would be capable of supporting Windows 8 features like Secure Boot and GPT drives (these features require a clean install of Windows 8).

 

Windows 8 BIOS updates for older systems are limited by the BIOS chip size. Such systems will not be capable of supporting Windows 8 features like Secure Boot and GPT drives. It is still recommended to update as they introduce support for the wireless button in Windows 8 and may have other fixes related to issues seen in test.

 

Windows 8 BIOS updates for products supporting UEFI 2.3.1

 

The list below covers initial Windows 8 bios releases. More recent BIOS versions may be available on the software download web page for your product.

Re: Consumer Notebooks and Windows 8 - Overview of BIOS updates

Again those bio numbers mean nothing to me. I don't even know where you locate those. My Product number is EOJ81UA#ABA . It is a Pavilion 17 Notebook with Windows 8 64 bit. It is very unstable with the curser jumping, windows jumping, changing pages and when I am trying to post or send an email, the font changes, window size changes or sometimes the work completely disappears. I did put my Product ID number in and it said it hasn't been checked by HP. What is wrong with Windows 8 that it is so unstable. I have read the community posts on Microsoft and there are a lot of complaints about it. Microsoft's response is for those with new computers to check with the manufacturer. So, that's what I have been doing but I am not getting any answer. I have read reviews from various Tech sites including CNet and they aren't recommending Windows 8. However, too late for me. When the screen on my Windows 7 went out, I had no choice but to purchase a new computer. Windows 8 was all that was available. I liked Windows 7 so this is a real letdown.
