So, i am having a major issue with my battery where it only charges to around 80% then stops. I have tried recalibrating it (charging it to as far as it goes, draining it and recharging it) to no prevail.
I have been doing some research and found out that a BIOS update COULD potentially fix the issue but also be warned that it could seriously mess up the system if it is done wrongly.
Have you ever done a BIOS update? What issues did it cause, if any? Should i risk it?
I have put this in Off topic as well but i wasn't sure where to put it.

I have replied off topic and that's where it should be really. As this one is for Giffgaff issues really. But I am sure that people won't mind that much that the thread is in here.

I have done this a number of time including the computer I am typing on now. A Bios update can potentially kill your computer if you do it wrong. However the manufacturers have a pretty safe way for doing it. Just make sure you keep a backup of the old Bios before you overwrite it. And take it slow so you minimise the risks.
