I have a new HP Omen and I am trying to update my BIOS to fix my screen which keeps flickering. The current BIOS is F.05. The update is F.35. But the option to update is is blocked. How can I fix this?

Could you expand a bit, what do you mean by update been blocked? E.g) error message etc..

 

Also where are you trying to download the update from the HP website on drivers page for your model or HP assistant app?

 

Finally your full HP product number

 

Many thanks,

James

BIOS updates usually are a rollup of all earlier versions but I have seen cases where jumping from a very early BIOS to the latest fails. You might try installing a previous version/versions to see if that eases the update along.
