Howto Update the BIOS for HP Notebook 355 G2

HP Notebook 355 G2
Linux

I use the notebook with Linux (Fedora 28) which works quite well except the fan speed is always max (temperature is low). And something drains the batterie even when the notebook is switched off (not suspended or hibernate).

 

Since the Bios (version F.02) is quite old I would like to update it with slight hopes to improve the one or the other issue.

I've downloaded the new Bios (F.12 Rev.A listed at HP for the serial number) installed it on an USB key.

But I cannot install update it. There is no "BIOS Mangagement" or "Firmware Management" in the Diagnostics or other Bios sections. Nor does "windows-key + B" or "windows-key + V" work somehow.

What can I do to update the Bios?

@David180

 

Not sure what you need to do to update your BIOS but that BIOS has no fix for your problem.

 

But if you go into the BIOS you can Disable Fan Always On option.

HP recommends this in topic HP Notebook PCs - Fan is Noisy and Spins Constantly, PC is Warmer than Normal. I found other hints in the net that suggest Bios update here.

 

The Bios - Fan Always On option is already disabled.
