BIOS update did not fix screen light leak issue

HP ENVY x360 - m6-aq105dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Just got my HP Envy 15 x360, I have to say its really great.

 

However, when I noticed there's a light being emmitted (leaked) on the top left corner of the screen. It's very noticeable during bootup because the background is black.

 

I then searched the HP site to search for answers and after looking at the driver/software section for this device, I saw a BIOS update with the description "Fixes an issue which causes which causes light to be emitted (leak) from the corner of the display panel". After installing it, the light leak still shows. The BIOS version on my laptop shows F.21.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Here's the link to the BIOS update

Hi,

 

This is a Hardware problem software cannot fix this, Such as a Bios Update. When you bought the Laptop/Notebook did it have this problem?

Yes. However, I was hoping the fix described by the BIOS Update would resolve this. The issue it was saying it would fix is the same thing as what I'm having.
