Compaq updating bios
I have cleaned the fan and heatsink off of dust recently.This is on a fresh XP Professional install with drivers installed.We are strongly recommended to update your BIOS only if one or more conditions apply.If you find several BIOS updates available for different motherboard names, you need to find out which motherboard is installed in your PC.
For more information visit our Intel AMI BIOS ID information page.It has a database of over 26 million drivers and can identify Compaq devices and almost any other manufacturer's hardware with very high accuracy.Driver Assist performs an in-depth scan of your entire system and all devices attached to it and verifies that you have the latest and most compatible drivers installed.My HP 6710b is running on F.04 bios dated 04/02/2007, which is quite old. To my undestanding this means downloading the newest Soft Paq available and selecting the bios update via software in question. BIOS F.10 sp38259 automatic installation version After that upgrade there is no problem to instal F.20 version.There are several updates to this, most recent being F.20 dated 1/12/2011. However Soft Paq does not show a bios update available.
