Re: How do I roll back a bios upgrade?

If you own a recent notebook from the last two years with the UEFI environment installed it is pretty simple.


Press power button and start tapping the Esc key to access the startup menu. In th startup menu select the F2 key. That will invoke the HP Advanced System Diagnostics. Select BIOS management  and in the BIOS management screen select BIOS Rollback. 


BTW... it always helps if you provide us with the product name or product number of your notebook.

Help others by clicking on the "Accept As Solution" button if my suggestion resolves the issue you were having

How can I do this, when I can't see anything, I have a black screen. I hear the fan running, lights are on, but can't see a blasted thing.
