Hello, first here's are my computer info :
Windows 7 x64
I've downloaded the file in the BIOS section of my computer, i runned it and launched it ( it's InsydeFlash ). But here's my problem, everytime when it finishes to upgrade my BIOS, my computer turn off and then the upgrade cant be applied ( or so ). I was thinking it was a overheating problem but it's not, my computer is totally cool.
I have no idea why it turn off my computer. I've tried many times and it turn off each time when it's completes,
Any idea where it comes from ? Or maybe i could try installing the BIOS file through another BIOS flashing utility ?

When flashing the BIOS it's normal for the laptop to shut down.
Have you actually checked to see if the BIOS has in fact been updated.
At any rate, you should stop trying to update it if it won't take, there is a good chance you're going to "BRICK" you machine.
A BIOS update changes the information on a chip on the mother board, not the hard drive.
If this chip becomes corrupted due to a bad BIOS flash, it will have to be sent to HP for repair.
To check to see what BIOS you are running type in system information in the search box.
Mine is F.15.
Your most recent one happens to be F.15 as well.

Oh okay, well InsydeFlash wasn't turning off the computer normally, i mean 0.00001 after the upgrade was done my computer turned off like if i were unplugging my computer with no batteries, or sometimes i could see the '' your computer is about to restart '' message with a cooldown and then my computer was shutting down at 8 or 7, i tought it was a bit weird but sounds like i'm ok finally !

What's your full model number ?
Don't keep trying to flash the BIOS just because there is a new version, if things are working OK then leave it alone.
If you need more help I will need your full model number and what your current BIOS is now.
Or even better a link to your specific support page.

You shouldnt play with BIOS like that , this is not some cheap program u can uninstall anytime u want , you can destroy your laptop easily , and repairing it will cost a lot.
And normally you should Ignore all these assistant suggestions , if your laptop working OK do not update bios especially via HP utilities.
If you really want to update bios , i suggest downloading it manually via HP driver , and manually installing it without any assistants at all.

The prefomence of my Laptop is very slow. I Have talk to Costomer care, He recomend me to upgrade the bios.
I have BIOS Version insyde F.1B 13-08-2013
Please Help Me
Thanks in advance.
T4M is right, if the performance of your laptop is slow then you need to look elsewhere to make it run faster.
Updating the BIOS will do nothing to speed your computer up. Leave the BIOS alone...
