How do I update the BIOS?

[ Edited ]

I have an HP Pavilion ze5700 CTO Notebook.  How do I update the BIOS?  How do I know if I have the most up-to-date-version?  Is it necessary to update the BIOS?

Re: How do I update the BIOS?

Check your model in support and drivers; usually you can see what the Bios update is for.

 

Normally I wouldn't update Bios unless HP insists you update to fix some problem--and you're suffering from it.

 

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

 

Good Luck!

Re: How do I update the BIOS?

Thank you.  It was just a curiosity I had.  I will not update the BIOS then because it's not needed.  I just thought that everything else usually needs to be updated that I would have to update the BIOS as well.  Now I know it's not needed.  Thank you again.
