We have received another returned laptop today from HP. The form explaining what HP have performed says they have upgraded the BIOS. I’ve checked the bios versions of all our 630 laptops and HP have downgraded each of the bios’s to an earlier F24. Should I downgrade the remaining BIOS’s from F.33 to f.24? If you have any other advice i would be happy to hear it. The bottom 2 entries are the laptops that have been downgraded.

Name, Model, Bios, Date, Bios, Version, Serial Number

Ask HP. We can't answer that question. –  Tom O'Connor Mar 29 '12 at 12:51
A lot of people on the internet have reported the same problem. 3 out of our 5 630 have had to be returned. I just thought someone may have come across this same issue and noticed the same as me. I'll give HP a ring and update the question. –  resolver101 Mar 30 '12 at 8:06
