Where to find an updated bios for the Erazer X40 (4090)?

I just got my new Erazer X40 in and I know about all the problems recent gaming laptops have been having.

I'd like to check if my bios is the most current or if there is a new one that improves performance (reduces crashes).

There is no download for bioses that I can find, but maybe I'm not looking in the right places.

Follow up:

I have bios 1.12 EC 0.24. 
I know that for the X40 exists 1.14 EC 0.27, but Medion support claims ignorance. 

For other brands of the same laptop there’s even 1.19 EC 1.08

 

Cam anyone help?

I have finally received a bios from Medion. It’s 1.19 with EC 1.08. If anyone needs it…

I think you’re right. XMG has 1.19 and I think I inadvertently wrote the X40 bios was 1.19 too, but I’m sure it was 1.18 as I remember it was still one digit lower than XMG.

Still, it took over a month of nagging before they gave it to me.

XMG BIOS is on 1.21 and EC-1.09, and works perfectly.

I want MEDION to provide the same level of support and work on their BIOS to sort the issues with freezing and restore Medion Logo on Boot.

I didn’t want to write it here, to avoid others doing it and possibly voiding their warranty, but I too am on the XMG 1.21 bios. I just got too tired from arguing with Medion and not getting anywhere to get the simplest of updates just so the machine would work normally.

When I finally did get an update all my problems were already solved, by XMG.

 

All we need now is a max fan setting on the watercooler and let’s gooooo!

Medion doesn't care about its customers, no communication and zero information on the 4090 freezes.

The next laptop I'll buy from XMG.

Same. Never Medion for me again. I wouldn’t even call them Medium as that would be an upgrade 🙂

 

I did buy the Medion watercooler though as XMG is still using the older version and I wanted to be able to travel more easily with it. (I also bought the XMG watercooler as I feel I owe them, and backups never hurt, in case I wanna go modding, which I do).
