BIOS UPDATE ON HP OMEN

HP Recommended
OMEN 17
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, 

After the BIOS update that HP rolled out, my temps sky rocket into 90 degrees and my computer is not stable, If I am playing or typing or composing music it will just shut down by itself 

THis never happened before, now its thermal throttling, power throttling , shutting down and hibernating by itself. 

Can I rollback to previous bios ? Where can I find the previous bios ? 

 

Thanks

HP has been deploying faulty BIOS updates lately. First F.08 for 15-ec000 series and now this. 

Did you try recovering the bios?

Simply hold B and windows keys while the laptop is off, then hold the power button for 1-2 seconds. ıt should launch the BIOS recovery tool. Check your version after it's done.

Sadly this isn't an option for the 15-ec series, which lots of people including me are stuck with a faulty update.

I tried to do it but it won't let me roll back. I don't get what Hp is doing with these updates. Locking the power voltage for the processor to go at it's max frequency. I can't hold a boost clock of 3.9 altho my processor has a max clock rate in turbo of 4.5, before the update it would hold steady at 3.9 as I set it on throttlestop, now when it reaches 3.9, just goes way down to 3.5. What's the point of this? Why did we pay for an i7-9750h with a boost clock of 4.5Mhz when it can't even reach 3.9Mhz? Not to mention my temps, at a 3.9 boost clock with undervold on both core and cache I was happy with low 80° before the update and 70+ fps in read dead redemption 2,  now I am glad if I get 56 fps and the temps sit arround 81°. Well played Hp..well played.

That's a lesson learned then. Never, ever buy from HP again. They're infamous with their terrible support and are famous of selling products that just break themselves in some form.
