Hey I have a hp pavilion g6 2230 us and I need bios drivers

HP Recommended
Pavilion 2230 us
Microsoft Windows 10 IOT

I need bios update or bios driver howver you say it. My screen is black when powering on holding windows key and v doesn't boot on but if I press ctrl alt delete and cram f10 it'll go to white screen. I unplugged bios battery and tried to power on to see if bios was the problem yes it powers on with some text on the screen so I need the right drivers or update or downgrade to get the laptop up and running again. I don't care if I have to wipe it clean I just need instructions and or links please and thank you in advance.

@Oxmal 

First, off I'm pretty sure you are NOT running Windows 10 IOT -- as that is only for embedded devices and does not come preloaded on laptops.  You need to provide accurate information for assistance.

 

As to the black screen issue, Software failures will generate on-screen messages, usually about not finding an Operating System or not being able to boot. When the screen is blank, the PC is experiencing a major hardware failure.
--------------------
To determine the cause with hardware failures, you have to be able run diagnostics. We have no way of accessing your PC from here, so we can not do that for you. You have to do it yourself.

You do this by pressing the Esc key repeatedly when rebooting and then, when the HP Startup Menu appears, selecting Diagnostics (usually F2) and letting it run.

If it is NOT possible to run diagnostics, or if that does not work, then there is NOTHING more you can do by yourself -- and there is NOTHING we can do.

You will need to have the PC physically examined in a service facility by folks that can run their own diagnostics to determine what is wrong with it.

--------------------
If your PC is still under the original one-year HP warranty, or if you have purchased an extended warranty from HP and this is still valid, then having HP do this is an inexpensive option for you. In that case, you should contact HP Customer Support to see about having it repaired or replaced under warranty.

To contact HP Support see the following link to create yourself a case number:

Step 1. Here is the link: https://support.hp.com/us-en/contact-hp
Step 2. Enter Product number or select to auto detect
Step 3. Scroll down to "Still need help? Complete the form to select your contact options"
Step 4. Scroll down and click on: HP contact options
--------------------
If your PC is no longer under warranty, then it will cost you up front to have HP examine your PC. If you want to do that, you will have to contact an HP Repair or Service Center to see if they can examine the PC to determine the cause(s) of the problems, if it can be repaired, and an estimate of the repair costs.

Since you live in the U.S., here is a link to the HP Service Repair Centers:
https://www.service-center-locator.com/hp-hewlett-packard/hp-hewlett-packard-service-center.htm

If that link does not get you a useful page, then use the main HP link:

Good Luck
