The problem I am having is sometimes during a reboot and every single time that a force reboot is required, I get this boot error stating "2210-Parameters Frame Error: ME BIOS Extension module execution has halted. Update BIOS or management engine firmware if problem persists."
"2206-End Of POST HECI Failure:
System halted. Power Cycle the system to reboot."
I guess the question is how to fix the management engine firmware or update it, and is the definition of "Power Cycle" nothing more than a ctrl-alt-del to reboot?

@vsudo -- is the definition of "Power Cycle" nothing more than a ctrl-alt-del to reboot?
No. It usually means shutting-down your computer, disconnecting the power-cord, pressing the ON/OFF button to "drain" any residual electrical power, then reconnecting the power-cord, and pressing the ON/OFF button to start the computer.
> Update BIOS or management engine firmware if problem persists.
Search the HP Support web-site for the "AMT" (or "Intel ME") device-driver for your computer. Install it, BEFORE trying any BIOS update.

Thank you for the quick response on my issue I really do appreciate that, and thats what I thought about the power cycle! So I know I have other issues going on with the bios now other than the bios update/upgrade because when I do the power cycle and restore juice back the unit, it give's me the same error every time and not only that, the cmos batt won't hold a charge at all, its not the batt I switched out 6 of them and they all do the same thing, as long as the power stays plugged in I don't have any issue's but the bios resets every time I power cycle, having to reset the time/locale and all config to the BIOS][dang thing resets back to factory every time theres power loss, the user and power on pwd has to be re-done every time I enter setup (doesn't matter if I power cycle or just boot into it either way it wont stay set) and for some reason the MEBx rather it be hidden or displayed in setup it will not boot into MEBx almost as if it was purged from the onboard emmc.
I upgraded the default cpu from the (INTEL 06 E5200 PENTIUM DUAL-CORE SLB9T MALAY 2.50GHZ to the INTEL 06 E7400 INTEL COREtm2 DUO SLGW3 MALAY 2.80GHZ) because of better performance, vm virtualization and I thought UEFI but still no luck getting that to work on it, "but when I first got the thing I was almost positive it would boot legacy or UEFI", I did find another mainboard for like 8.00 usd "its otw" so no worries about all my issues as being "urgent need help asap --status" so no rush on the 2nd reply.
But I am terribly sorry to bother you on a late 90's early 2000 dino but I absoultly love these old vintage pieces that anyone else would just throw away, legacy boot aint playin no games with the right setup like my extremely modified "AdvancedThreat Persistence" .iso I way over tweeked is like jason statham in the movie Crank omfg I love no lag and smooth sailing on a distro thats designed to hack fort knox and not be decteted on a unit that old as the dc5800!! i've researched forums for months now with no luck on the correct (.bin's - .exe) update/upgrade files trustworthy enough to to attempt flashing the bios yet, I tried that on my mothers hp 23 all in one and since it has no display port or pci add in options, I flashed her's and now its not only black screen of death, but usb, cd/dvd, ports were wiped out I dont see any way to fix it but replace the main and I really dont want a repeat scenario ya know lol.
So if you know what steps to take in restoring this old A$ dirt bios back to normal and or links to file downloads that wont blow me house up that would be cool af. Even though im getting a new main, doesnt mean I don't want the knowledge in update/upgrade/flashing system bios tweeks 🙂 and I again thank you for the responce time and perfessional advice its nice to meet a non-troll thats punctual and I really mean that!
Sorry if this is an echo I wasn't sure if the first went through somehow it logged me out before i got done with this book lol
have a good one hope to hear from ya soon.

I don't know if you can still find an apparatus called a "ROM Burner".
It's been over 20 years since I have seen this "old-school" device in action.
With it, you remove the CMOS memory chip from the motherboard, and put the file for the BIOS onto a floppy-disk, and this device copies the BIOS file from the floppy-disk onto the memory chip. Then, re-insert the chip into your motherboard.
