HP Support Assistant does not show BIOS update

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 15-n213ed notebook-pc
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hello all,


I have some difficulties starting my laptop lately. I regularly use HP Support Assistant, but the last 5 years it did not show any updates. While I think of it, it did not show any significant updates at all. My HP Support Assistant version is


My notebook is a HP Pavilion 15-n213ed with the following product number: F9G11EA#ABH

My BIOS-version is, according to the specifications in HP Support Assistant and msinfo32, F.42 (Insyde F.42, 4-12-2013).

If I look at the dedicated HP support page of my notebook ( , I see all kinds of updates that HP Support Assistant never brought forth.


So my questions are:

1) Does my HP Support Assistant work propertly?

2) Do I need to update my BIOS?

3) There are three different BIOS versions on the dedicated support page: F.71 Rev.A, F.66 Rev., F.67 Rev.A. Which one do I need? Could I just pick the most recent one and update my BIOS version in one go?


Thank you guys in advance!
