BIOS update file doesn't work

I downloaded the BIOS update file for my laptop(Y510P) from here: 

 

http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/ideapad-y-series-laptops/ideapad-y510p...

 

And when I tried to install it, I see this pop up:

So, at this point, I am unable to proceed with BIOS update. I hope someone in the Lenovo community can help me with this.

Re: BIOS update file doesn't work

Hello and welcome,

 

Is the battery installed?  IIRC that message is telling you it doesn't detect a battery.

I didin't realize that meant battery was disconnected. So, I put the battery back on, but now it says, "BIOS version compare error". Could this mean I downloaded the wrong file?
