So I took it all apart and checked and cleaned all the hardware. Measured and looked for anything wrong. But nothing.

Several attempts booting in BIOS with USB.

Still nothing.  

Then I come across something about the new BIOS update and people struggling with the new update installation. 

So why not test an earlier version of BIOS? 

I downloaded a old version onto my USB and what do you know. IT came back to life! 

You have to push down windows + B and then push hold start button 3 sec continuing holding down win + B until screen comes up. My PC didn't make any beeps like they say it would. 

Then I installed the old BIOS started the computer. Installed all the new hardware drivers then newest BIOS then Windows update. 

Now I have a working  computer 😊

Same happened to me after windows updates (HP Firmeware update).

 

8 beeps + 2 long + 2 shot -> 4 times.

 

I contacted several times support team, they dont believe that it was windows updates and said i was a hardware problem, so i needed to ship my pc to repair.

 

Now i have proff that i was not the only one with this issue.

 

Thanks.

 

Oh and btw ship it to fix they need to restore bios for sure, this last update really damaged the pc.

 

2 Major issues in 3 months with updates. I would not advice HP to anyone now.
