You can download the recommended Bios driver updates by clicking the "Download" button.Important: When prompted, click "save" to save the installer to your computer.
This error shows when your computer’s BIOS doesn’t support the capacity of the hard disk where you are installing Windows XP or it’s not properly installed.
Issues with your hard disk drive’s partition can also be a major cause. There are no other known alternative messages for this boot error, except the “Error loading operating system” text that appears on your computer’s black screen at startup.
That would be very beneficial to me as battery performance, at the moment, is barely above average. The BIOS is not OS specific until one gets into OEM Windows 8, which requires UEFI/GPT from OEM's, and bootloader protection in the hardware. I'm of the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" category as well. The F.35 BIOS listed on HP's website for your laptop is dated 2010-04-09 which is considerably newer than the one you have now (F.33 04/29/2008). The risk level should be quite low (if there had be problems HP would hardly have left it there for four years).
I don't think I would go for just battery improvement if mine was already "barely above average". As someone else posted your laptop's BIOS is not OS-specific.
BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is standard boot firmware installed on all PC motherboards.
It is the first code the computer runs on startup that tells the system important things like which hard drive to use, how much RAM there is, and overall what state the system is in.Tap the F2 key on startup if you have a Dell computer. For other manufacturers and in general, look for a message that appears on startup saying "Press ** to enter BIOS or setup."

Do you feel that your site slowlyness is killing sales or traffic?
