Re: microcode update


Updating the BIOS should take care of the issue. 

Post the Operating system version, model name and product number of your HP product here in your thread. For newer laptops and PCs..... in Windows just hold the CTRL+ ALT+S keys to invoke the information.


yours is an older model. There is actually a newer BIOS for Windows XP that specifically addresses the issue that you have. I have no idea which OS you have installed. That information always helps us out.

If you could please post your product number for your computer. I am linking a document below that will show you how to find your product number. As well if you could indicate which operating system you want change to whether or not it is 32-bit or 64-bit as with this and the product number we can provide you with accurate information.
