Automatic Bios update



I have a Pavilion dv6 with AMD Turion II. 


After a session of web surfing I shut down the computer. After Windows went through its shut down steps a screen popped up that said something like, A HP Net Bios update is available, would you like to update now?. I clicked yes. 


Full Screen with HP logo: "HP Bios Update


The sytem BIOS is being updated. Do not shut down or remove power during the update. This will take a few minutes.


For more info go to:


downloaded and verified 512 blocks with progress now at 100%."


Its now an hour later and the fan is whirring away. I went to the techcenter and what was there did not match what I saw on my screen. What I saw was like an automatic microsoft update, not a dos like update on the techcenter website. I was given no prompts...


After an hour I tried esc key / hold down power button / control,alt keeps whirring away.


Any ideas? Assistance is appreciated
