Upgrade BIOS

There is a fairly new BIOS from September, 2015 which would likely be an update for you:

 

http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp73501-74000/sp73940.exe

 

Download this and run it from within Windows. Don't be running any other programs. Make sure it is plugged in to AC power and has a fully charged battery. Don't expect miracles on the video. It is actually doubtful this will make a difference but the BIOS update is part of ordinary maintenance so it cannot hurt to do it. You may find that the HP software on the laptop has already performed this update and if so the BIOS program will tell you that you already have this BIOS and refuse to go further.
