My PC had been running terribly for years and I'm now deciding to look into it before I do some upgrades.

I'm running BIOS v8.15 (2013) and am trying to update to v8.19 (2014). I'd like help please because I've read that messing up BIOS updates can really screw up your computer.

Here's the download link I found.

Click change OS, then Windows and Windows 8.1 (64 bit)

This BIOS version will work on Windows 10 right even though it says Windows 8.1?

Thank you so much in advance.

Also my specs:
HP Pavilion p7-1534 (completely stock)
MS-7778
AMD A8-5500 with Radeon HD 7560D
1TB Seagate Barracuda HDD

As has been said it's a update util.
No mention of it fixes any problems.
Your call to try it.

What did you mean by running terribly and upgrades?

Run this and post a link to the results.
