RE: 17R3 and 15R2 BIOS 1.2.13 may 16th 2016 ssd reboot fix

Hi!

Sorry if i'm at the wrong place here, but i was searching for the new BIOS 1.2.13 Alienware release, and google showed me this forum.

I´m having 2 problems with my almost new Alienware 17 R3 with Windows 10 (only six months lifetime) that are driving me mad... My BIOS version: 1.1.5. One problem is that everytime i turn it on, it turns off after seconds. So i have to turn it on again, and windows starts normally. The other problem is the battery. My battery is in 74%, saying "Not Charging" anymore.

For the battery issue, i found on the internet people saying to open the screws and disconnect the battery, but i did not feel safe to do this.
For the startup issue, unreliable things.

Could you help me? Should i update the BIOS for this 1.2.13 release? I have a lot of softwares installed (like Adobe Collection, 3D softwares....), and I'm afraid of losing everything and having to reinstall...

Thank you!
