HP EliteBook 8740w Mobile Workstation Notebook BIOS F.0A
This package creates files that contain an image of the System BIOS (ROM) for supported notebook models with a 68CAD Family ROM. This package is used to flash the System ROM on supported notebooks that are running a supported operating system. This package includes the following methods for updating the BIOS version: - Use the HPQFlash Utility to update the BIOS directly in a Microsoft Windows Operating System environment. - Create a bootable USB key to update the system BIOS. - Use HP System Software Manager (SSM) to update the system BIOS on target PCs in a network. NOTE: To determine the ROM family and ROM date, press F10 on the target notebook during startup to run the Setup Utility, and then view File/System Information.
1. Download the file by clicking the "Download" or "Obtain Software" button and saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where the downloaded file is saved).
2. Depending on the desired update method, complete either of the following actions:
a. To update the BIOS using HPQFlash or to create a bootable disk-on-key, double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.
b. To use HP System Software Manager (SSM) to update the BIOS on notebooks in a network, copy the downloaded file to the file store, and then run the SSM software.
- Fixes an intermittent issue where the system stops responding (hangs) with a black screen during startup when booting to a Microsoft Windows Operating System.
It is highly recommended to always use the most recent driver version available.
