Auto Start Not Working after BIOS Update

Pavillion 500-590
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I recently updated the BIOS. Whereas before the updated, as per the settings, the system would boot automatically on the selected days and time.

Now, even though all the settings are correct, the system will not start itself.  I've checked, reset and (re)changed them mutiple times  without being able to get the system to auto-start.

I shut the system off at night and want it to auto-start (especially when I'm away from home).

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated

BIOS Rev ME2 v80.08

Bios Date 4/172017

Auto Start Not Working after BIOS Update

@skatz80817,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

I recommend you follow the below steps and check if it helps.

  1. From a powered-off state, turn on the computer and immediately press the F10 key repeatedly, about once every second.

  2. When the BIOS menu appears, press the Right arrow key to highlight the Advanced tab.

  3. Press the Down arrow key to highlight BIOS Power-On, and then press the Enter key to select.

  4. Press the Up and Down arrow keys to select the day. Then press the Right and Left arrow keys to change the settings. Select Enable to turn on the computer automatically on that day.

  5. Press the Down arrow key to highlight Time (hh:mm).

  6. To set the time when the computer should turn on, do the following:

    • To increase or decrease the hour setting, use the Up and Down arrow keys.

    • Press the Tab key to highlight the minutes setting.

    • To increase or decrease the minute setting, use the Up and Down arrow keys.

    NOTE: 

    The time is in a 24-hour format (for example, 1:30PM is written as 13:30). You can only set one time that will apply to every day the BIOS Power-On feature is enabled.

Auto Start Not Working after BIOS Update

Thanks for the solutions.  However, I have already set all those options and the auto-start STILL does not work (I had set them before - I'm a self employed tech and knew where to look).

I have a feeling that the BIOS update is not working correctly.
