I have HP Pavillion 15-AB125AX.
Recently updated the BIOS to latest F.41 version. After the upgrade im facing problem with my gpu.
I would like to downgrade the bios to older version. I have many older versions of bios but the inbuilt bios installer wont install older version. Tried the Win + B method with no success.
The BIOS on this notebook is from AMI.
Is there any other method or tool to downgrade the BIOS?

What problem are you facing with your GPU and isn't it possible to solve the issue rather than walking away from it?

I am getting corrupted display in games while performance mode is selected. Tried older as well as newer drivers. Also tried on windows 10 and windows 7, nothing solved the problem. Any help appreciated.

That sounds more like a hardware problem, if you have any warranty left on this thing, get it exchanged. Contact HP tech support for that.

Warranty period is over. The reason i believe it is due to bios because it was working perfectly fine before the bios update.
