Omen 880-108na Bios Corruption

HP Recommended
Omen 880-108na

Hi there. 

 

I was having an issue where the computer would start to boot, then blue screen, then system would appear to reboot and do 2 long bleeps then two short beeps,

 

This error seems to relate to the BIOS being corrupted.

I was changing around the HDD and stuff ready to do a BIOS update when to my surprise I saw the Windows screen. something I haven't seen for ages. Then a blue screen but this time was a different blue screen and didn't automatically restart. I messed around with it and was unable to get any further. At this point I decided to try a BIOS update hoping this would improve the situation.

I went ahead and downloaded sp97077  F.50 BIOS

I went into Diagnostic mode and flashed the BIOS from USB I think it said the old version was F.20 I think? Can't quite remember.

It seemed to finish up okay and when rebooted it said 

" A system BIOS Recovery error has occurred.
BIOS Recovery (500)
Enter - Continue Startup"

I press enter, system then reboots and beeps 8 times while displaying 


"BIOS Corruption has been detected. BIOS recovery will begin automatically when you restart your PC
BIOS recovery will take several minutes.........."

 

I tried flashing the other BIOS listed on the support section sp95516 which is BIOS F.21 and the recovery system said it couldn't read the image.

I have tried re flashing F.50 and retried F.21 with same results as previous.

 

It this point I'm stumped as to how to proceed. I was really hopeful that when I saw the desktop it would be okay.
I wish I had attempted a Windows reload before the BIOS update.

Thank you for any advice

I hope somebody can help. perhaps an older BIOS image will help?

 

Do anyone know where I can find an older BIOS to flash? 

 

Maybe this will help
