Hi

Sorry.

Nothing helpful comes to mind.

Screen shows nothing?

 

Re-Post the problem and someone else may have a better insight.

 

I have been told these are not really suitable, but desperate times.....

This describes troubleshooting steps for what to do when the computer boots to the black screen.

 

Step 1: Creating a 3-in-1 USB Key

 

Follow these steps to create a 3-in-1 USB Key.

1. Click here to download HP PC Diagnostics (SP69063) onto your computer. Make sure to note the location of where the file is diagnostic tool is saved. When the HP PC Diagnostics tool is finished downloading, an InstallShield window opens.

Hi

Refer to my earlier/first post.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Step 2: Use the USB disk “3-in-1 USB Key? to restore the BIOS
Follow these steps to restore BIOS from the USB drive.
1. Turn off the computer.
2. Insert the USB disk that you formatted in Step 1.
3. Press the Windows Image + B keys.
NOTE: 
If the “start? key and the “B? keys are broken in the computer, you can press the four direction keys at the same time to enter the mandatory recovery programs.
4. Press the power button.
5. When the computer turns on, press and hold the Windows Image + B keys for three to five seconds.
The Caps Lock lights blinks three to five times.
On some computers, the UEFI BIOS recovery interface displays (show only, cannot control), when the BIOS recovery operations starts. On other computers, the Caps Lock and Num Lock blink at this time, but nothing displays on the screen. After three to five minutes, the message BIOS recovery is successful displays (different models, this interface will be different).
NOTE: 
The interface varies in different models.
6. After the BIOS Recovery completes, check the BIOS version and do the necessary update.
The BIOS Recovery Key contained in the ROM file is not necessarily the newest version.
NOTE: 
If the screen does not display after five minutes, it means the recovery cannot be completed

 

~~~~~~~~

 

I am out of practical ideas, it is beyond me, but not necessarily others here.

Hi

Because you do not know the Main Board SSID and which BIOS to use, I suggest HP directly to resolve the situation.
