Z800
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Upgraded Z800 bios from 3.60 to latest 3.61 (rev a) .

 

Have started to notice instability issues, with complete Windows operating system hangs.

 

i note in the support bios readme, you cannot roll-back to previous version.

i have tried and received a failed update warning !

 

Any suggestions or similar issues from other users ?

what errors are being shown in the windows log files?

 

HP released the z800 spectre bios fix well after the problems were found with the original bios updates. intel first released then pulled the orignal fix due to issues then rerreleased a updated fix once they found/fixed the stability problem

 

my z820 has the updated spectre fixed bios, and i have not noticed any issues with reboots/bsod's , same with my z800

Z800 3.61 BIOS pretty much makes your computer unusable. Crashing every day atleast once, but usually multible times. I think it has something to do with power saving features.

your experence is not the normal experence most z800 uses are having.

 

you might want to do some troubleshooting to see if you can determine why or what is causing your problems

Hi!

 

It looks like my motherboard broke right after BIOS update. That explains my problems.
