2. Press F2 key to enter SETUP mode in POST or Press F4 key to Flash mode in POST;
3. Advanced ->Start Easy Flash
Start Easy Flash: Easy flash interface for upgrade BIOS
4. Find BIOS file on your HDD or USB disk, then run it .it can Flash BIOS to new ver.
Tips: please hold AC adapter and Battery on your laptop at the same time.

Note if the USB drive is not detected in the Flash Utility program, it is necessary to configure the USB device as the first hard disk drive, as follows:
Boot->Hard Disk Drive->Change USB device to 1st drive.

Re: How to do BIOS update with XP

By copy it means allow the strange code to finish loading, click 'file', 'save page as' in your browser and save it to your desktop and then follow the instructions provided above.

 

BTW: What changed in the 06CN33WW compared to 06CN31WW?
