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

Is that what the number is for my computer? I don't know where to find that. When I checked by my product number it said it hadn't been tested. I just want to know how to find software that stops the instability of Windows 8.

I guess no one knows or there isn't a fix. If so Microsoft needs to address this!

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

Give us a BIOS update for G6 series so we can force dedicated graphic card to be used instead of processor integrated graphics.

 

PLEASE

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

Hi Maroun84,

 

There are several different models of the HP Envy dv6-7202. Could you please tell me which one you have. Here is a document on how to find your Model Number .

Once you have that go here to Select your product.  On the next page you would choose *Drivers* then you would select your operating system and click *Next* then scroll down and click on *BIOS* and it will tell you the latest version. You can then download from there if you do not have the latest version.

 

I hope this helps, if you need me to find the BIOS version please send me the model number.

 

Thank you,

Dear Sir

I have HP Envy DV6-7202ee
Product Number: C4V13EA#ABV
SERIAL: .......
current BIOS: F.28 - 07/25/2013

Kindly note that I have selected a notebook similar to mine, which is 7202eg, and then I have selected *drivers*, and chose windows 8.1 as my Operating System, but the Driver of the BIOS is not listed there along with other drivers.

I am unsure if F.28 is a good version, since i have installed it from 2 months from the main HP page of my product drivers, but unfortunately they removed the whole product/page and they say that my product is not supported anymore whenever I try to search for drivers using my MODEL NUMBER.

please advise how can I check what are the compatible BIOS versions for my notebook, and how can I download them,

Really appreciate your help,

Thank you and Best Regards

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

Hi Maroun84,

 

After doing some investigation into the BIOS updates I have discovered that the version for Windows 8 are the latest version and will be what is used for Windows 8.1 BIOS updates as well. There is a 2013-10-08 , VersionF.29, 6.56M update that is the latest version for your Notebook series.

 

Hope this helps and if you have any more questions feel free to contact me.

 

Thank you,

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

What about an ENVY17 2050eb update to officialy support Windows 8(.1), cause BIOS says now it's Windows 7 as OS
