BIOS update issue

HP Recommended
Pavilion 17-ar050wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I've been running this laptop for about 2 weeks now after adding memory to max it out at 16gb. Today the assistant decided to update my bios to F-27 Rev. A. Now my memory shows to be 8.06gb. I can't find any place where I can download and rollback the bios. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

Perform a BIOS recovery on the notebook

  1. Turn off the computer, and then connect the power cord.

  2. Press and hold the Windows key and the B key at the same time, and then press and hold the Power button for 2 to 3 seconds.

  3. Release the Power button but continue pressing the Windows and B keys. You might hear a series of beeps.

    • If the HP BIOS Update screen does not display, repeat the previous steps but press the Windows key and the V key. If the screen still does not display, your computer might not support the feature or there is a hard drive issue. Continue to the next section to Recover the BIOS using a USB recovery drive.

    • If the Power light turns off, the Power button was held too long. Repeat the previous steps, making sure to hold the Power button for only 2 to 3 seconds.

    • If a BIOS recovery message repeatedly displays, continue to the next section to Recover the BIOS using a USB recovery drive.

    • If a message that the computer improperly shut down or a boot problem is detected displays, follow the on-screen instructions to resolve the error.

    • If Windows starts, update to the latest BIOS version. Go to HP Notebook PCs - Updating the BIOS for more information.

    The HP BIOS Update screen displays and the recovery begins automatically.

If this recovery method fails, use another working computer to create a BIOS recovery flash drive to install the latest BIOS file.
