I'm having a hard time to downgrade my BIOS from version 01.14.01 Rev.A to an older version (01.08.01 Rev.A).
More details :
My laptop decided to upgrade the BIOS by itself (or perhaps it was through Windows Update) to the 01.14.01 Rev.A version. The problem is, I tested every BIOS updates in the past and the one I find most stable is 01.08.01 Rev.A. Every other newer update going forward just makes my laptop very slow and hot (this version included). I work in a very silent environment and every the laptop gets hot, it rams up the fan which bothers me and other peoples in my office a lot.
I tried to downgrade the BIOS as I did last time after upgrading, but I always got a message saying : "BIOS update denied by system policy", which is very strange because I checked everywhere in the BIOS and I did not found any option that would block a BIOS update. I even tried reset the BIOS to default settings by I'm still facing the same problem with the same message.
My questions :
Can you please suggest a solution to my problem ? Maybe I'm missing something...
Moreover, my machine is still under warranty, if the problem cannot be fixed by myself, can a technician come to my place and fix it ? (I live in Paris, France by the way).
Thanks for reading !
