The system BIOS recovery failed. Unable to open Bios image file.

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
After a windows update, the Notebook does not start windows. Send the message of "The system Bios recovery faied. Unable to open Bios image file". It does not allow the ESC, F2, F8, F10, F12 key functions. It does not allow me to start "HP PC HARDWARE DIAGNOSTICS 4-IN-1 USB KEY". On the website, no Bios updates appear for the HP-14-ck0039LA. How can I do to recover Bios? Do you know any way to perform this recovery without having to reinstall the operating system? I will be attentive for any suggestion. Thank you.

@EPARQUE Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you are unable to update the BIOS.


Start with a hard reset to release any excessive static on the PC: 

  • If Windows is open, click Start and then Shutdown. 

  • If Windows is not open and the computer has power, press and hold the power button on the computer until the computer shuts off. 

  • With the power off, disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer. 

  • With the power off and the power cord disconnected, press the power button on the computer for 5 seconds. The power light indicator on or near the power button might turn on briefly but then go out. 

  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the power.
