Trying to update BIOS, the computer rebooted and starting beeping. Corrupted BIOS and dead computer. I've brought it to a service but they say there is not any firmware of the BIOS available for my model so they can't reflash it. I've been navigating in loop through the HP website without any success. I only need the . bin for this model. Is there any possibility I can get it somewhere, please? Thanks

@Willow2022 -- is your computer listed at: HP Consumer Notebook PCs - Basic Input Output System (BIOS) Updates (EDK2 UEFI firmware) | HP® Custo...
That page has links to BIOS files for many HP computers.

Thanks @itsmyname . It's not listed here, sorry, but I've found this page where my computer with SSID 85BA is listed and there is a .exe that can be downloaded.
Do you think the repair man could use this to reflash the bios?

@Willow2022 -- Do you think the repair person could use this to reflash the BIOS?
Yes, if they are competent. The necessary "BIN" file is contained within the download.
The download allows two methods of applying the update:
1. Copy the BIN file to a USB memory stick. Power-off your computer. Connect the memory-stick. Power-on the computer, and enter BIOS SETUP. Find the option in the menu to read the BIN file from the memory-stick, and to update the BIOS.
2. Run an app within Windows to update the BIOS. Note that the app may have been programmed to ONLY work on one of: Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 10.
I hope this helps.
