How to update bios?

Hewlett-packard / Pavilion g6 1068se
March 7, 2018 at 10:17:32
Specs: Windows 7, Core i5/ 4GB
I purchased a HP Pavilion G6 1068se laptop, the card reader and internal speakers were not working, i tried each and everything to enable these devices but unsuccessfull. thn after diagnoising it, i came to know that the laptop is HP Pavilion G6 1068se on label, but in bios it is showing HP Pavilion dv6, i believe that someone has changed the bios of this computer, so thatiswhy, speakers and card reader is not working.

can i restore the bios of HP pavilion g6 again or i need to update bios to latest version of dv6 to use speakers.?????


meanwhile i ran KALI LINUX live on my pc, and i found that the speakers are working fine with kali linux..
thn i installed kali linux in my pc, but still facing same problem, the speakers are working fine if i start live linux from bootable drive but not responding while runnig os from hdd.

the current version of bios is "F.05" and there is no option in it to enable/disable speakers.

Go here https://support.hp.com/us-en/driver... and download the audio drivers and any other drivers needed.

It might not be a bad idea to update BIOS, especially since the latest version is F.66, but why would you think the BIOS would have anything to do with your sound problem? If there's nothing physically wrong with your hardware, the most likely cause is lack of drivers. The link posted by Pappy will provide everything you need.

"i think my speakers are disabled in bios"

I highly doubt it. I think you did something that you're not telling us. Kali Linux was an odd choice to use for troubleshooting. It's designed for "Advanced Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking". Why did you pick that particular version of Linux?

If you think the BIOS is the problem, why don't you just update it? You'll need to have Windows installed to do it. Here you go: BIOS version F.66 direct download

BTW, make sure you have the AC adapter connected when running the BIOS update. Do NOT run it on battery power alone!

If you want our help, you have to respond to follow-up questions. Let me try again.

- Which operating system is currently installed - Windows or Linux? You wrote, "i installed kali linux in my pc, but still facing same problem".
- If Linux is installed, why did you choose Kali?
- If Windows is installed, did you check Device Manager to see if there are any drivers missing?
- You wrote, "i can see hp pavilion G6 on laptop label and in BIOS setup, i can see HP Pavilion dv6 under system configuration tab". If it says Pavilion G6 on the lower corner of the screen near the hinge, AND it says G6 in the BIOS, AND G6 on the label, why would you think it's not a G6? And where is the "system configuration tab" you mentioned?
- Since you insist the BIOS is the problem, did you update to version F.66 using the link I supplied in response #5?
