Hi Nice that HP issued on such short notice a new BIOS ! That shows dedication for us, their customers ! Also during booting a F.08 version did the fan run 100% (I guess because it was quite noisy. However is the laptop with F.09 BIOS version running cool ? Something as the F.08 bios version ? Personally I think this is very important next to the other issues (keyboard etc) because a hot running laptop gets annoying when the fan is too noisy for too long.....Special for other people in the same room.
