I spent time yesterday installing updates, rebooting over and over as required after some updates.
The final update was pushed through the HP Support Assistant, to install a BIOS uodate.
After that, my computer will no longer boot up. Black screen, no beeps, no flashing LEDs, just a brief whirring as it tries to start.
I have tried every possible suggestion I can find online to access the BIOS, all the F-keys, ESC, nothing gives me the BIOS.
All help is appreciated, this is kinda desperate.

It's now 8 days later.
Did you remove the disk-drive from the computer, and then connect the disk-drive to a different computer as a "secondary" disk-drive, to copy all the personal files from that disk-drive, to create a "backup" ?

Sounds like the BIOS update didn't take properly or is corrupt.
You could try this BIOS recovery method:
Failing that, get onto HP support and see if they'll log a warranty call for it as it failed via the HP Support Assistant.

In general, you shouldn't need to update your BIOS that often. Installing (or "flashing") a new BIOS is more dangerous than updating a simple Windows program, and if something goes wrong during the process, you could end up bricking your computer.
