BIOS Update queries

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)



I have a friend's laptop Windows 10 64bit  which needs some attention regarding software update. When using the HP Support Assistant, there is no update available for BIOS however when I search in the Drivers section on the HP site, there shows a BIOS update released on Jul 7, 2020.  


The BIOS version in HP Support Asst is F.38 and in the System Info is BIOS Version/Date Insyde F.38, 24-05-2017


The one showing up on the HP site is as below





F.55 Rev.A

Operating systems:

Windows 10 (64-bit)

Release date:

Jul 7, 2020


Also, there are many other Software Updates available below the BIOS update. Do I need to manually update each of them?


So, do I need to manually update the BIOS or leave it as it is ??


Any and all help will be really appreciated.

Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.


Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, 
To get the answer to this question, you don't have to manually update the driver from the website. 

You can update the drivers when is pushed through Windows update.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
