Lenovo Y500 BIOS Update where?

I was wondering how to update my BIOS when I have my laptop. I don't see any BIOS updates available when looking in DRIVER & SOFTWARE section.

Re: Lenovo Y500 BIOS Update where?

Hi

Why do you want to update the bios? Are facing any problem? You want to fix something? 

It takes about 7-8 months after a notebook gets released for the bios update to be made. So you might have to wait for some time and bios update is not necessary for the laptop until and unless any problem is there.

It's my first laptop. And Dell releases BIOS updates monthly, so I was actually wondering.

Thanks for your solution.

There is a new BIOS update for the Y500. link

 

It is 6BCN42WW(V2.02).

 

Does anyone from Lenovo have a changelog?

 

And why is this firmware update not on the offcial driver page?

If it isn't on the support page I would stay clean of it if I were You - it means it is not official, You risk damaging Your machine.
