Refer the following weblink that explains the 501 error:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01443317&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en#N51

 

Here is the link to the BIOS update for your unit:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp56501-57000/sp56765.exe

 

More info on BIOS update, refer the following weblink:

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp56501-57000/sp56765.html

 

This package creates files that contain an image of the System BIOS (ROM) for supported notebook models in the 68CCU ROM Family. This package is used to flash the System ROM on supported notebooks. This package includes several methods for updating the BIOS version as follows: - Use the HPQFlash Utility to update the BIOS directly in a Microsoft Windows Operating System environment. - Create a bootable USB Key to update the system BIOS. - Use System Software Manager (SSM) to update the system BIOS on PCs in a network. NOTE: To determine the ROM family and ROM date, press F10 on the notebook during startup to run the Setup Utility, and then view File/System Information.
