How do I do a BIOS update on windows XP? Maybe my standby problem is BIOS related.

I went to the HP site and downloaded a update file for their mercury BIOS. But the instructions are for windows 98 & ME.

It says I have to create a boot disk but when I do, and boot from the floppy, it just starts up winXP like normal. Do I run the BIOS program in windows? I remember when I did this on my computer before, when I had win98, I was able to boot into DOS to do this. How do I do it now?

Go into BIOS Setup and check your Boot Drive Sequence, make sure the Floppy is listed first. Because with Windows XP you still can boot with any OS you like, such as with a MD-DOS diskette or a WIndows 98 Startup diskette. Then you should be able to upgrade the BIOS.
