I bouhgt notebook HP EliteBook 8740w
I have several problems...
(i5 520M, 4Gb, 320 HDD, ATI 7820M)
OS - Preinstalled Windows 7 Prof. 64 bits
All windows updates and latest drivers for chipset, video and so on were installed.
1. Notebook doesn't wake after sleep mode, i.e. all coolers start working realy loudly and LEDs burn bright, but screen leaves black(5, 10 and more minutes but no progress)
I supposed to problem with BIOS, I have BIOS ver F.03 from 28.04.2010 but actual version is F.09
I went to HP support site and downloaded latest one.
But I can't update BIOS !!!
if I use HPQFlash.exe programm, it say: "after restarting OS, BIOS will be updated", but after restarting OS BIOS has old version
if I use options - USB system drive, after formating and copying files(I checked files on flush), but when I try to choose load OS from flush drive(after restarting ESC, F9), I see error - this disk is not system drive chose another, or something like that
I tested at least tree different flush drives, and always had same result.
I even downloaded bios version f.08, but the same situation too.
So, I try to summarize problems
1. Notebook doesn't wake up after sleep mode
2. It is not able to update BIOS
3. What wrong with loading PC from USB drive....
Is any body could help me... pleeeeeeze
Solved! Go to Solution.

For resolving problem with standby mode, need update Intel Full Management Engine
I've downloaded firmware from here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/S
wake up after sleeping is working now !!!!
about boot from USB drive, I've tested USB hdd - it worked correctly...
but boot from flush steel impossible...
and BIOS doesn't want to by updated either...
