Help. My HP pavilion gaming laptop won't let me get into windows, won't let me factory reset and has a black screen. Literally the only thing I can do is surf the web. All other things I try won't work and home screen is black. There's no toolbar or anything.  How can I fix this? I can install or replace the part myself but need to know what needs replaced

Hi @xl_King_KO_lx,

 

Welcome to HP Support Community. 

Thank you for posting your query, I will be glad to help you.

 

I suggest that you follow the steps listed below for BIOS recovery:

1. Turn off the computer and keep the power adapter plugged in.

2. Press and hold the Windows key and the B key at the same time, and then press and hold the power button for 2 to 3 seconds.

3. Release the Power button but continue pressing the Windows and B keys. You might hear a series of beeps.

4. The HP BIOS Update screen displays, and the recovery begins automatically. Follow any on-screen prompts to continue the start up to complete the recovery.
