BIOS updates every time I boot

HP Recommended
HP Laptop 15-bs0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone! After a recent Windows 10 update I started having some issues with my HP Laptop, particularly in relation to booting time. Everytime I'd turn on the computer it would take several minutes to finish loading everything up and even then most programs would run in a sluggish way. 

 

After some research, I disabled most startup apps except for the crucial ones and did some minor fixes that seemed to improve booting time, but there still was the issue with programs running rather slow and freezing. While inspecting Task Manager I noticed that certain tasks such as 'System' where clogging up disk usage and keeping it at an almost constant 100%.

 

Upon further research I was recommended to check for driver updates and possibly even BIOS updates. Using HP Support Assistant I checked for updates and sure enough there was a BIOS update available titled "HP Notebook System BIOS Update (Intel Processors)".

 

I know what a BIOS update entails and that it's often not recommended unless there's some big issue, but I had done BIOS updates in the past using HPSA and had no problems, so I figured I'd give it a try. The update was successful and things seemed to improve. The disk usage problem seems to have gone away for the most part.

 

Now, the actual problem and the reason I'm posting here is that I've noticed that every time I turn on / restart / boot, I get sent into the BIOS update screen. There's both an option to 'cancel' or 'postpone' that work as expected, proceeding to normal booting when clicked. But it still is a minor inconvenience and was wondering if there's any fix for this.

 

Thanks in advance!

I reviewed your post and I understand that the very time you boot the computer goes to the BIOS update screen.

 

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

 

What is the product number of your computer?

 

Meanwhile, I recommend you restore the BIOS defaults following the steps in the below article and check whether the issue is resolved.
