XPS 8900, BIOS 2.6.1 installed, Support page says not

I have a Dell XPS 8900 desktop computer. I am trying to update my bios. When I go to the Dell web site in the Drivers and Downloads page, it shows an update for my bios to version 2.6.1. I have downloaded the file and installed it. I was told that it installed correctly, and when I check system information, it shows that I am running the new bios - 2.6.1. Why is that when I go back to the Dell Support page for drivers and downloads, it still shows me that I have to download and upgrade my bios?

Sounds like it is updated on your PC, it's just not updated yet on Dell's website.  Try closing the browser, restarting the PC, and going back to the drivers and support page and entering your service tag info again.  It probably just needs to re scan your system.
