Hello thepope,

 

I have read your post on how you cannot get the bios to reset, and I would be happy to guide you towards a resolution! To begin, I will need to ask you a few questions:

 

  • What is the Product and Model Number of your desktop computer?
  • What version of Windows do you have installed on your computer?
  • Has your computer completed all of its important Windows Updates?
  • Have you updated your HP drivers using the HP Support Assistant?
  • Is this an on-going, or recent issue?
  • Have you added any new software or hardware to your desktop recently?
  • Are you able to load Windows successfully when your computer boots up?

In the meantime, I recommend following this document on Restoring the BIOS. This should help recover your computer from possible BIOS errors, corruptions, and restore the BIOS to factory settings.

 

Please re-post with the results of your troubleshooting, as well as the requested information above. I look forward to your reply!

Regards Smiley Happy
