Turn off the computer, and then connect the power cord.
Press and hold the Windows key and the B key at the same time, and then press and hold the power button for 2 to 3 seconds.
Release the Power button but continue pressing the Windows and B keys. You might hear a series of beeps.
The HP BIOS Update screen displays and the recovery begins automatically. Follow any on-screen prompts to continue the startup to complete the recovery.
HP BIOS Update recovery in progress

If the HP BIOS Update screen does not display, repeat the previous steps but press the Windows key and the V key. If the screen still does not display, your computer might not support the feature or there is a hard drive issue. Continue to the next step to install a BIOS recovery file from the HP website.
If the Power light turns off, the Power button was held too long. Repeat the previous steps, making sure to hold the button for only 2 to 3 seconds.

Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn.

Okay, I tried bolth methods and didnt work. the hard drive is 1tb and it worked fine before until I shut it off while trying a bios update. Anyway to make a usb recovery? I looked at the bios upate driver but when I go threw it there is no option to put on usb. 

Also the hard drive starts to make the sound after doing widnows + b. If I need to move files onto hard drive to put bios thiung thats fine. 

Great help so far 😄
