Power interrupted bios update

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Turned on my desktop and it went into BIOS update. I was caught by surprise and thought maybe it was a virus and powered down. Now I cannot start up. When I power on there are loud beeps and black screen.

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


Powering off during a BIOS update is not good.


Try all BIOS recovery options at the following HP site:


Desktop PCs (Link).


You may need HP factory service if you cannot recover the BIOS.
