samsung BIOS update

  sunnystaines 18:34 01 Feb 2014

got my laptop back from samsung new hdd and new M/B. I have installed all windows updates and w8.1 also using samsungs SW software update done all the drivers and sofware.

Except for the BIOS ver PO5AJB will not install update PO7AJB recommended on the samsung software. it downloads ok restarts the laptop then when windows loads get a pop up saying update failed. [all security had been disabled] tried several times same result.

previously the BIOS had updated to ver PO6 then PO7 ok. Rang samsung support who said the new M/B has ver PO7 but the sofware is reading it wrong as PO5.

accepted this but then later did msconfig and windows reports BIOS as PO5.

Any tips on how to update the BIOS, I thik samsung have fobbed me off.

If everything is working OK leave the BIOS alone

a bad BIOS flash will mean a new motherboard which samsung are unlikely to pay for
