What is the BIOS version on this netbook?

The current BIOS.  I downloaded last night and updated. 

 

At lunch today I reloaded the orginal driver for the touchpad, and all seems to work again.  I think there is a bug in the new driver update that had caused it to stop working.  Anyway that is my theory since I loaded the new one three times and no success, but reloading the old one it seems to work again.

If we are talking about F.12 BIOS. I would suggest, reverting back to F.02. I have been reading threads that F.02 is causing the Touchpad to stop working...

Here is link to F.02 BIOS ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp50001-50500/sp50166.exe

Re: Mini 210-2031tu Touchpad has stopped working

Cyclops is correct... My Hp Mini 210-2000's touchpad also stopped functioning after I did recent updates. At first, I had no clue what was wrong, I tried using the old touchpad driver, still wouldn't work.

 

I then reverted back to the old f.02 BIOS and magically, my touchpad started working.

 

So it seems there is a problem with the new BIOS update that disables the touchpad completely. Because, even if you are not using recent drivers, your touchpad should never completely STOP working.

 

Any way to let HP know this?
