Bios update taking too long?

Your notebook is a 2010 version. It has a legacy BIOS. That is unfortunate.


The BIOS corruption recovery for UEFI models produced in 2012 and more recent won't work for your notebook.


You can try extracting a current BIOS .ROM and .SIG file to a usb flash drive, plugging it into one of the notebook's USB ports and booting up. It may or may not recover the BIOS.


Otherwise, only replacement of the BIOS chip with one that has a fresh BIOS flashed into it will serve as a repair  for your notebook at a reasonable cost.  


That is a pretty involved repair and is something usually done by a BIOS repair company. Search online for one and get a price for the repair from them.
