Solved!

Omen won't turn on after bios update

HP Recommended
Omen
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Just did the BIOS update suggested by HP Assistant and now my thousand plus dollar gaming pc that I've owned for less than a month doesn't even turn on. I'm extremely unimpressed and hoping for an easy answer here...

Hi

 

Start with a Hard Reset...Press and Hold the PWR off button for 4 seconds to force a PWR off.

Unplug from the wall.

Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds to complete the reset.

Then a BIOS fix...

To recover an earlier version of the BIOS on your PC:
  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. With the computer off, press and hold the Windows logo key and the B key at the same time.
  3. Still pressing those keys, press and hold down the Power button on the computer for 2 to 3 seconds, and then release the Power button but continue to hold the Windows and B keys until the BIOS update screen is displayed or until you hear a beeping sound (usually 8 beeps).
    The power LED light remains on, and the screen remains blank for about 40 seconds before anything appears on the display. You might also hear beeping sounds. Eventually, an HP BIOS Update screen displays and the BIOS update begins automatically.

etc etc.

CF4, you just saved my hard earned vacation for me!

Thank you for helping a random, grumpy, voice on the Internet. Not all heroes wear capes. 😄
