am i the only one that noticed this....i know i have to find that page where there is a modded f40e bios because of throttlestop and all, but check this out, fwiw. i am honestly shocked that they even came out with an update, but hp has an update for the bios as listed here. it's F41 now. no joke. here for the base page Software & Driver Downloads HP Pavilion HDX9494NR Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English) and here for bios page HP Notebook System BIOS Update (Intel Processors) HP Pavilion HDX9494NR Entertainment Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English) should i flash it? i am tempted. whatever it is, the people that modded the f40E might want to take a look at it, as it may have valuable changes not listed.
