I have just got an X15809 laptop and am trying to ensure its up to date. I want to update the motherboard but have absolutely no idea which one I have. I have ran 3rd party programs and the command line, but they all just say my motherboard is standard.
Please can someone help

Hi @ptc_uk and welcome,
you have a TongFang barebone GK5CQ7Z
BIOS update via device manager
(import the latest version via the Windows Update server)
You only have to switch to the device manager in Windows, expand the menu item Firmware,
right-click on the system firmware and select the item "Update driver" in the context menu.
In the window that now opens, select, if you are connected to the Internet, automatically search for the updated driver software and the current version will be searched for on the WU.
Translated from this article in a slightly modified form:

Thanks for this, i have checked and tried to update that way, but it says by driver was last updated in 2006, surely thats wrong, i must be able to update another way?

almost right, already very close😉
in the folder "system firmware properties" see your picture.
do not go to "driver" but to the right of it to "firmware"

I am sorry but which Version (99?) should be the correct one no idea.And on this page is no buttun for Updating. This goes bey the driver tab, if at all.
Please check the given details also as I suggested in Page 1 in Bios; or with MsInfo32..
Then we might be able to check, whether it is the newest Version
May be Fishtown knows more about it.
