My current idea is to re-install the bios at bootup.
Ive tried loading all the files found in the bios update onto a usb 1gb and 8gb drive formatted as FAT32, no avail.
Renamed the .rom to HPBIOS.ROM again nothing on either usb
Attempted usingthe win key+B key power on trick Ive seen for hp laptops and had no luck.
I've found that the motherboard BIOS or CMOS problem (ROM) has very little information anywhere available even though there seem to be quite a few HP desktop systems that have used this specific model of motherboard.
If anyones got any ideas, Im open for suggestions.
I would like to help with this issue your experiencing. To ensure I fully understand you were not having any issues until you completed the BIOS update right?
This can happen if power is lost while updating the BIOS, or when the BIOS is updated with an update that was not downloaded from HP, or when a certain virus or malicious program modifies the BIOS data.To resolve the error click here

Make sure to reset BIOS by jumping BIOS pins, Remove BIOS Battery and try again. If those methods are not fixed the next thing you have to do is, remove BIOS Chip and re-program or fix a new BIOS which is according to the motherboard model.
