  1. Why can't I install the newest BIOS?


    Hi!
    I don't know if this is a normal thing or an error, but since I changed the mobo and CPU of my laptop it shows a different model name in BIOS and system info, and the drivers are for a CTO laptop. What I want to know is if this change is due to the new mobo or CPU.

    The original name and CPU of my laptop:
    HP Pavilion dv7-6c05ss
    Intel Core i7- 2670QM

    The current name and CPU of my laptop:
    HP Pavilion dv7t-xw899av CTO
    Intel Core i7 - 2860QM

    The motherboard I purchased was the exact one for my PC model, so I suppose this new name is due to the new CPU, but what I can't understand is why I can't install the latest BIOS for the 6c05ss. The one I'm using is dated on may 2011, and the latest one for the 6c05ss is dated on november 2012, so I suppose is better than the one I'm using and, the most important, it lets you change between fixed and dynamic mode graphics.
    Is all that because of the new motherboard or because of the CPU? That's all I want to know.
    Thanks!

    :)
