How to fix a BIOS Error 501

HI emyas:

 

 

Thank you for your query:  I am happy to assist you!

 

I understand that your are getting the  BIOS Error 501. I believe the rest of the error message, is about a corrupt or missing bios applications.  I am sending you a link to HP Bios Application Selected is Corrupt or Missing  click here. Please let me know if this has helped.

If you require further assistance would you provide the model of your computer, the operating system you are running, and what you were trying to do, when you received the error.

How to fix a BIOS Error 501

This is what I did.

I removed the fan and clean it carefully. I did this because I noticed that the temperature around this area was very high. It was the first step I decided to take to resolve this problem. My laptop was restarted all the time. So the bug disappeared.

I hope this can help. It worked for me.

You link to a pdf file but the link is an html file the redirect goes offsite and seems to be an invitation to play a lottery.

For all I know and although I don't think it you may be offering malware such as hard drive exploits and ransom ware.

 

If so how much to get my files back?

Or should I continue looking for the solution here?
