Solved!

BIOS update taking to long

HP Recommended
Hp Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My computer just out of nowhere stopped coming on. The laptop had power and was turning out but the screen stayed black. After messing with it for hours we started a BIOS update that the laptop never told me it needed. Now we are two hours in waiting on the laptop to finish up dating and it says Block 6/2048 and progress is still at 0%. What should I do?

@Mess2 Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that the BIOS is taking a long to install, or is possibly freezing.

 

Start with a hard reset to release any excessive static on the PC: 

  • If Windows is open, click Start and then Shutdown. 

  • If Windows is not open and the computer has power, press and hold the power button on the computer until the computer shuts off. 

  • With the power off, disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer. 

  • With the power off and the power cord disconnected, press the power button on the computer for 5 seconds. The power light indicator on or near the power button might turn on briefly but then go out. 

  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the power. 

Attempt to reset or recover the existing BIOS (if the recent update was interrupted): Click here

Step 1: Verify the current BIOS version installed and the correct ROM Family SSID for your PC 

Step 2: Find the BIOS updates 

Step 3: Download and install the BIOS update
