help :) update bios or update model number

So, in the process of trying to fix other issues, i was told to download the latest lenovo update utility and run it.  Did that and it told us it had 8 updates and 17 or so optional ones.  We let it download these.  Now it's asking us:


Please choose one of the following tasks:
Update ThinkPad BIOS

Update model number


I really don't know much about this.  Any idea what option I should select and why it is asking me this?

Choose Update Thinkpad BIOS then click next or ok...

When flashing BIOS do not turn off your machine or run any programs... the BIOS update will prompt you to reboot when its done...
