@TSKY 

The Community can not provide any assistance without some details ...

So, please provide the following:
1) detailed model number of the PC
2) OS version the PC is running (i.e., Win7, Win8x, Win10)
3) Age of the PC
4) Detailed description of the problem -- including the EXACT wording of any error message being displayed

Once you provide the needed details, someone will reply.

The model number is 1HM19AV

its running Windows 10

I bought this PC a year and a half ago.

I downloaded the BIOS update from the hp website and ran it. It created a folder in C drive called SWSetup then closed. And nothing happens. There are files in the folder HPWINGUI.exe, license.txt, P04_0234.bin, P04_0234.SIG, SP110512.cva, SP110512.txt.
