Bios upgrade locked up system, black screen and only audio of 2 short beeps and 2 long beeps

HP Recommended
Pavilion All-in-One 24-b010

Initiated HP BIOS update as noted on required updates.  After 30+ hours the display was still blank (black).   Tried to shut down and power back up.  This resulted in a black screen and beeping.  Tried online support, which did not resolve, stop the beeping or powering up screen.  Per you website I took it to your local rep “uBreakiFix”. They had it for 4 days,  were not able to go past the beeping and black screen.  UBreakiFix rep said it was a BIOS issue and to ship the machine to HP Support-Repair.  Need shipping instructions and address.

@SeaHorse48 , welcome to the forum.

 

This guide shows that the 2 short and 2 long beeps means BIOS recovery successful: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02222922#:~:text=What%20to%20do%20when%20beep%20codes%20occur...

 

This obviously is not your situation.

 

Here is a guide that may help you recover your BIOS/UEFI: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-24-b000-all-in-one-desktop-pc-series-touch/11046865...

 

Scroll down to the section titled "During a BIOS update a black screen displays".  Read this section and follow the instructions carefully.  If the repair shop didn't affect the BIOS this may work for you.
