HP's EliteBook 6930p notebook PC is a business-class laptop that comes with Windows Vista. Like most laptops, HP releases updated BIOS files for the 6930p. BIOS updates fix hardware bugs and sometimes add support for new hardware. A computer's BIOS is the program that runs before Windows when the computer boots, initialising the computer's hardware and performing basic system checking. HP provides a downloadable tool for updating your HP 6930p laptop's BIOS.
