Hi Lenovo Forum,
I wanted to ask for help and advice on whether there is a need for my Flex 4 laptop to update its BIOS.
It's my first time opening the Lenovo companion app that came with the laptop and I noticed that there is one critical update.
Here is the installation history:
Here is the system info from the companion app
Now my question is, do I have to update this or simply ignore it?
Just to clarify, I'm not really a tech savvy person. I am unsure if this is safe or not. I read from other sites that updating the BIOS may have risks of bricking the laptop and make it unusable.
So, I really need help if I should proceed with the update or leave as it is.
The current situation right now is, everything seems to be working fine. I am near my warranty expiration. The only complaints that I have is that whenever I leave my laptop and set it to sleep by 11PM, I open it the next morning and the battery is all drained to 1%. This does not happen all the time, but for it may happen quite frequently.
Here is my battery information
And one other complain is that, even if I set it to sleep mode, sometimes, I do hear the laptop fan go really loud. I am also not sure why that happens.
But I hope all my additional information would be helpful on determining if my computer has issues and if I do really need to update the BIOS.
Any type of help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Upon checking this link:
It seems like I have dozens of things to update that doesn't even show in the Lenovo Companion App.
Most importantly, this has the latest BIOS:
I am not sure what is the necessary version or required updates. This is quite confusing.
