BIOS update for IPIBL-LB (BENICIA) motherboard

HP Pavilion a6680it Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi.

 

I wanted to update my BIOS to version 5.43 but on the installation program it says that you must have Windows 7 or Windows Vista.

Since I updated my system to Windows 10 do I have to downgrade it to do that?

 

Thanks.

Probably not.  They probably mean that trying to update requires a "supported" operating system.

Windows Vista was supported until April 2017. Windows 7 will be supported until January 2020.

What problem are you trying to solve that you think that a BIOS update is the solution?

 

I am a long-term resident in the "camp" that almost never does a BIOS update, unless the documentation that accompanies the update suggests that the update will fix a problem that I am having.

 

This forum has many posts, where a BIOS update has "bricked" the motherboard.

 

Sometimes, there is no remedy.

Sometimes, there is a remedy that does not require replacing the motherboard.

Sometimes, the only remedy is to purchase a [expensive!] replacement motherboard.

Either way, it will be a lot of effort to remediate to "revive" a bad BIOS update experience.

 

So, what is the "real" problem with your computer?

Are you sure the existing BIOS doesn't support the 9650?   I have the same Benicia motherboard and my 9650 runs just fine.
