Bios no longer knows how to operate fans

After upgrading to "A16" the bios no longer knew how to make my fans spin. the hardware was just fine and i could operate them with programs like hwmoniter and speedfans. but they did not operate with the battery options or at all. i solved the issue by downgrading to A15 bios. will this problem be solved anytime soon? do i have any security risks by having and older bios?

RE: Bios no longer knows how to operate fans

Thank you for your message.

What is the system model in question here?

Was the system heating up when you were on the latest bios?

Did you run any system built diagnostics to check if there was an issue?
