Updating a sony bios after a new power supply
The exhaust heat has to go somewhere..it can't rise off the back / sides of the area behind the laptop, it will blow back and collect over time.If you watch temps, and have low usage, you can get away with tighter conditions some of the time, but keep watching.In some cases, opening your computer's housing will void your warranty, and you run a significant risk of permanently damaging your computer while doing so.If you can't access your BIOS, your best course of action is to take the computer into a tech department instead of doing it yourself.Hi there, I'm planning on updating the BIOS on my G750JW which came with the 210 version I think (Under XTU in BIOS version i see G750JW.210 so I suppose this is it right? I need your help please before launching the process. When you apply a BIOS patch, that's it, they are cumulative. The G750 exhaust fans put out a lot of heat that will collect behind the laptop, and migrate under and to the front where the still heated air will get sucked back in to the laptop.So firstly what stable BIOS version do you advise me to get? We have seen people putting the G750 on a desk next to a wall, or worse in a cornet, and start to cook their laptop - angling the G750 exhaust off the edge of the desk, toward an open space beyond the desk works best.
Again, the following screenshots and instructions are specifically for an ASUS Z170-A motherboard, so your BIOS may vary.This motherboard uses Intel’s new Z170 chipset, which is only a few months old.If you find yourself with a similar very new motherboard, the absolute first thing you should do is update the BIOS.Please note that i'm Under Win8 64bits and planning to stay that way (not switching to Win8.1 for now) Secondly once updated the BIOS do I need to update my drivers? What particular prcautions should I take before/during the process? If you move the desk so that it is a few inches from the wall to promote air flow, that helps too.And lastly : should anything go wrong after the update can i downgrade to my actual BIOS version (201)? Maxter, that is how I got caught up the first time, I tested during low usage times for heat blowback, but when I finally got active on the laptop and loaded it up, really generating heat, that is when I felt the heat on my body coming off the desk - blowing off the back wall, coming under the laptop and heating up my chest.
