    Hi,
    I have 2 HP laptops DV6-2056el and DV6-2044el. I want to fix some DV6-2044el fan poblems (it fires up and stays at max speed forever) using a dedicated BIOS update from the DV6-2056el.

    Both laptops have same exact Mainboard model, Insyde Setup Utility Revision (INSYDE EFI rev 3.5), Chipset, CPU, ram type, Graphic Board (same revision here, too) and same chassis too, of course.

    A side to side comparison of the first bios screenshot suggest we're indeed talking of the same thing:

    Same for CPU-Z:

    Here you can find all the bios screenshots.

    Do you see any reason to advice me against that? Is there anything I'm missing?
    Thank you ever so much for any advice you could give me!

    p.s. I had to edit the links since the forum doesn't allow me to use them yet (less than 20 posts). They still work if copied and pasted in a browser.

    Thank you,
    the local hp website hp redirected me to, didn't list all the updates. The US one does. So much for global market. :)
