for the JW we are on BIOS 208. Everything works flawless. When you apply a BIOS patch, that's it, they are cumulative. Why would you want to reverse? Newer BIOS handle the hardware better. I am on Win8 as well, no need for 8.1 either.
Updated BIOS (basic input/output system) has nothing to do with the drivers.Nevertheless, keep updated with drivers. As already mentioned, graphics drivers are key for the gaming (some are better than others - you can downgrade drivers if new ones unstable; sometimes it happens for some games).
For BIOS update, keep computer plugged. If your computer loses power while flashing new BIOS your PC becomes paper-weight. If your computer loses power while updating drivers, that can be fixed.

Nope. Fans work just as needed. New BIOS (208) only affected CPU behavior under battery. It is much better now.Temperature hovers around 40-45 for iddle, and below 60 for gaming. Make sure there is nothing under laptop and at least 6 inches from the back wall for optimal cooling.

I see... I'm usually around half foot from the back, but running it on powersave mode (i share an office so I want it quiet). It hovers around 40-45C.

I'm planning on updating the BIOS on my G750JW which came with the 210 version I think (Under XTU in BIOS version i see G750JW.210 so I suppose this is it right?).
I need your help please before launching the process.
So firstly what stable BIOS version do you advise me to get? Please note that i'm Under Win8 64bits and planning to stay that way (not switching to Win8.1 for now)
Secondly once updated the BIOS do I need to update my drivers? If yes which ones are critical?
What particular precautions should I take before/during the process?
And lastly : should anything go wrong after the update can i downgrade to my actual BIOS version (201)? and how?
Thank you for your help!
