Bios System Date Update

HP Recommended
HP ENVY TouchSmart 23se-d494
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am applying for a work from home job. My system passes all the other tests but the Bios System Date failed. Is there anything I can do about this? I'd appreciate any help you could give me. Thank you

@Trisharae Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you are unable to update the BIOS.


Do not worry. I will try to fix the issue.


You have to set up the BIOS update on a USB flash drive.


Use a second computer with Internet access to create a BIOS recovery USB flash drive.

  1. Insert a blank USB flash drive into an available port on the second computer.

  2. Go to the HP Customer Support - Software and Driver Downloads page.

  3. Navigate to the product page for your original computer.

  4. Select BIOS from the list that displays, and then review any available BIOS updates.


    Read the Details section to confirm that the BIOS update is more recent then the one installed and that it applies to the original computer. Installing the wrong BIOS could cause your computer to stop working.

    • If you do not see a BIOS update listed for your computer, no update is currently available.

    • If there are multiple BIOS updates available, identify the motherboard installed on your computer using the information you wrote down from the System Information utility in the previous step.

    • If you find a BIOS update, click Download. If HP Download and Install Assistant displays, select Download only, and then click Next. Click Save to save the BIOS update file on your computer.

  5. Click Yes on the User Account Control screen.

    Clicking Yes to allow the update to install

  6. On the InstallShield Wizard window, click Next.

    Clicking Next in the InstallShield Wizard

  7. Select I accept the terms in the license agreement, and then click Next.

  14. Remove the flash drive from the computer.

Update the BIOS

Use the Hardware Diagnostics UEFI on the original computer to update the BIOS.

  1. Turn on the original computer, and then immediately press the Esc key repeatedly, about once every second, until the Startup Menu opens.

  5. Click Firmware Management or BIOS Management.

  15. When prompted, click Restart System, or wait for the computer to restart automatically. It might take a few minutes for the computer to restart.


    If the update fails, a failure screen displays with additional information. The system might run an automatic BIOS recovery after restarting. Do not attempt to turn off the computer if this happens.

    Clicking Restart System

  16. When the lock screen displays, sign in to your computer.
