I am wanting to upgrade my BIOS on my operating system.  The current version that I am using is AMI 7.16 (01-18-2012).  I want to upgrade to the latest version if there happens to be one.  I am confident that this will help solve my no sound issue from a Sound Blaster Audigy 5/rx.  Can anyone with experience in this field help me out?  Thanks in Advance.01-18-2012 HP Pavillion BIOS Version.jpg

Thank you for your reply

Is the BIOS update dependant on the Windows OS or the motherboard (baseboard) or something else? I have the following baseboard as outlined on the screenshot provided with my original post. I have a:

Baseboard Manufacturer: Pegatron Corporation

Baseboard Product: 2ACF

Baseboard Version: 1.03

OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Home

Version: 10.0.19044 Build 19044

Hello @ElFotografo 

 

The bios update is OS independent !

 

Why you should update your BIOS in any case !

Quote: "

Updating the BIOS is recommended as standard maintenance of the computer. It can also help resolve the following issues:

 

  • An available BIOS update resolves a specific issue or improves computer performance.
  • The current BIOS does not support a hardware component or a Windows upgrade.
  • HP Support recommends installing a specific BIOS update.
