Laptop extremely slow after BIOS Update F.05

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion 15 ec0003ca
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So, about 2 days ago I installed the newest BIOS Update and it did nothing but slow down my computer to the point where its a headache to even open this tab. It slows down everything from booting up my computer to opening windows to watching youtube, and most importantly (in my case at least) gaming. I now get 10 fps max on a game that I used to get around 80 fps on. I contacted customer support through chat but they were of pretty much no help, as they just updated Windows 10 and cleared the temp files. I even tried to rollback my PC but it was still slow even after that. Any help?

@Train123z,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that the computer is running slow after a BIOS update.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I recommend you follow the below steps and check if it helps.

 

perform a clean boot and check.

 

Here is how it is done.

  1. Click Start, and type msconfig.
  2. Select System Configuration from the search results.
  3. On the Services tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then tap or click Disable all.
  4. On the Startup tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click Open Task Manager.
  5. On the Startup tab in Task Manager, for each startup item, select the item and then click Disable.
  6. Close Task Manager.
  7. On the Startup tab of the System Configuration dialog box, tap or click OK, and then restart the computer. 

 

If you continue facing the issue, then follow the below steps.

 

Right-click your desktop background and select NVIDIA Control Panel. You can also find this tool by performing a Start menu (or Start screen) search for NVIDIA Control Panel or by right-clicking the NVIDIA icon in your system tray and selecting Open NVIDIA Control Panel.

 

To quickly set a system-wide preference, you could use the Adjust image settings with the preview option. For example, if you have old hardware that struggles to play the games you want to play, you may want to select “Use my preference emphasizing” and move the slider all the way to “Performance.” This trades graphics quality for an increased frame rate.

 

By default, the “Use the advanced 3D image settings” option is selected. You can select Manage 3D settings and change advanced settings for all programs on your computer or just for specific games. NVIDIA keeps a database of the optimal settings for various games, but you’re free to tweak individual settings here. Just mouse-over an option for an explanation of what it does.

 

If you have a laptop with NVIDIA Optimus technology — that is, both NVIDIA and Intel graphics — this is the same place you can choose which applications will use the NVIDIA hardware and which will use the Intel hardware.

 

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!

 

If you wish to show appreciation for my efforts, mark my post as Accept as Solution. Your feedback counts!

 

Cheers!
