It did check the processor, and notified you of your graphics.

 

All seems ok to me.

Okay thanks was expecting the same as the other items it checked stating UP TO DATE that to me shows it has been checked as for me not being fully conversatant with proccesors a list of stuff means nothing UP TO DATE shows it is correct

Just my short fallings

Cheers

You can look under "drivers and software" for your processor here:

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/134906/intel-core-i7-8750h-processor-9m-cache-up-to-4-10-ghz.html

 

As you can see, there is only the graphics driver.

What you should be checking is with the manufacturer of your device/motherboard for bios updates, which contain corrections for your bios as well as security updates.  If you need assistance on bios updates, contact the manufacturer of your device/system.

What is the complete model number of your laptop/system/motherboard?

In windows 10, right-click on start, select run, and enter MSINFO32.  In the output, it should tell you your bios version/date.  Then, with the info on you laptop/system/motherboard, we will find what the latest is on the manufacturer site.  Then, you are on your own.  Some systems are difficult when updating the bios.

Well, this may have been easier than I thought.  Do you by any chance also have nvidia graphics?

 

From the model number of your laptop, it would seem that you have the latest bios.

Then, you have dual graphics.  That may not mean much to you, but you are one of the rare cases where the intel updates have went without error.  So, congratulations!.
