Version 3.11 is the last BIOS update available for this model and can be downloaded from the following weblink:

http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software7/COL16586/pv-43508-1/sp26834.exe

 

The following weblink has a few steps to resolve this error:

[ Edited ]

the only error messege i get is the 0xc0000001 that is for Windows 8, i tryed to re download windows 7 ISO through a flash drive and it gave me " The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. please contatct your system vendor for an updated BIOS". i was told that both errors are the same thing. i am not able to boot in safe mode, the system will not boot currently, it trys but fails. even so if i cant boot the system i wont be able to update the bios and inturn i cant fix the problem.

How did you upgrade to Win8? Did you use a DVD?

I went from Win 7 to Win 8 pro, the first installation worked, it restarted i made my account and logged in Win 8, i powered down the computer, and tried to get back on and that is when i started to get that error, ive spent about 5 hours with Microsoft support and after that i need to contact HP about the error. i used a digital DL for Win 8

Re: Error Code 0xc0000001, after updating to windows 8

Hi,
Were you able to install Win8 with internet access? If you're missing the graphics drivers, I'm not sure there is a good way to install them.

Can you boot to Safe Mode?
