Can't find HP system BIOS update utility for

HP 655 e1 amd vision
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
BIOS update froze for more than an hour, So I foolishly pulled out the battery after trying hard reboot and that didn't work. I think I should try HP system bios update utility, the problem is that I've searched the whole of HP site and I can't find the software in this video: " https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=t3S3KgcT-Ao ". Please where can I find this software for HP 655 e1

Hi @zavorfang

 

Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for your post.

 

 

 

Personally, I do not recommend you update the BIOS unless you experience some issues with your existing BIOS and you are sure that the new BIOS will fix it.

 

General recommendation I provide to users/customers is NOT to upgrade BIOS/UEFI unless they experience any kind of specific BIOS/UEFI issue. Updating just for updaing and just for using the latest verson is not solution. Any kind of update (no matter for what and who relesed it) can fix 2 issues but may introduce 10 more issues. Additionally, upgrading the BIOS (for any vendor) poses more risks because BIOS recovery is not that easy as compared to typical software updates IF something goes wrong.

 

Same applies for Windows Updates, OS update, drivers updates, etc - upgrade/update IF you have issues which you know are fixed in the newer version or for some severe security issues. Otherwise, keep the existing version as long as possible.

 

 

With regards to the specific question and if you do insist on updating the BIOS and if you really need to do it, please follow these instructions in the official article >>> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00042629

Follow the method "when Windows does not start" >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00042629#AbT1

 

The particular file that you show a video of can be downloaded (product specific) from HP servers/web site >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers

 

 

Hope this helps.  Let me know if you have any more questions.

Please, review the articles carefully. As for the BIOS, this should be the download link for your model

The one in the video creates a recovery USB, its called HP system BIOS update utility and its about 28mb. While the one in the link installs the BIOS directly from windows while the PC is on, its called insydeflash and its just about 5mb....
