May I ask why are you going to update your bios?

Because the left palm rest of my lappy is heating to fast..They said I didn't download the right BIOS..I think the problem is not in the fan or in the air vent because I purchase my laptop one month ago.

Hi,
1. Post your part number (p/n) . You'll find it at the bottom of the laptop on a sticker, which looks like this.

2. May I ask who told you that you installed wrong Bios?

3. Could you tell us which Bios version you got installed now?

4. Does this laptop have ever switched off due to overheating?
