Re: BIOS Update taking long time to install?

I downloaded a BIOS driver and installed it in my laptop (Envy 4-1035TX). The monitor went blank but my laptop is still on. I tried removing the battery and putting it back. When I turned my laptop on, nothing is happening. It's still blank but the power button is on.

Re: BIOS Update taking long time to install?

Hi - I abandoned trying to update the BIOS as 'too dangerous' my pc was not doing anything that looked as though a BIOS update would fix, so felt it safer to leave well alone, sorry if this is after the event.

Hi @leimgling,

 

 

Thank you for replying.

 

What happened when you connected an external display?  Did all the hardware tests pass?
