BIOS Failure

HP Recommended
Pavillion 570-p015z
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

While upgrading BIOS my power went out. Now I get nothing and tried alsmost everything to get bios redone. None of mhy usb ports work and all I get is a flashing powerr button. Any suggestions?

I have a Willow2 Motherboard.

Have you tried recovering the BIOS using a USB drive and a downloaded copy of the BIOS file? There is a video on Youtube HERE  and HP Support article HERE  which detail the process on an HP laptop - perhaps it might work on a desktop too? I hope it works because interrupting a BIOS update/flash usually results in a 'bricked' PC.. 😢

All USB Ports are dead (No Power). CD/DVD Writer also dead. Harddrive is dead also. (starts to initiate then quits). All other ports are dead also. All fans work and you can hear the CPU whine.

I am starting thing my motherboard is fried.

I am just going to replace the motherboard which I dread that thought. Not cheap and I don't have the extra money to do it now.

😯So sorry to hear that - you must have completely 'bricked' the PC, which is sometimes a risk you take with BIOS updates. Good luck in fixing your machine..
