Hey @Rahul_mk, 

 

I would like to welcome you to the HP Support Community. If my reply resolves your issue or answer your question(s),  please let others know this reply was helpful by clicking the Accept as Solution button.

 

I understand that you did a BIOS upgrade but it did not take well to your HP Pavilion Notebook - 15-ab522tx. You mentioned that your Notebook is now slow and games and movies are stuttering. 

 

Many HP Notebooks have an HP BIOS Restore tool that may recover the BIOS from an earlier version and restore basic functionality. Please follow the documentation to do a BIOS reset

 

Have you tried to perform a hard reset?

Which BIOS version did  you upgrade to?

 

You said that Windows 10 is up to date.

Have you tried using the HP Support Assistant for updates also? 

 

You can try following the below steps to reload the factory installed BIOS Setup Settings:

  1. In the BIOS Setup utility, select the Exit tab.

  2. Select Load Setup Defaults.

  3. Select Save Changes and Exit (pressing F5 and the Enter key will also load the Setup Defaults).

  4. Press Esc and then Enter to exit Setup.

If you require further assistance, I would be more than happy to continue to help you. Please re-post with any information you think may help me find a resolution for you. Please also let me know if the BIOS reset works. If you would like to show you appreciation for my efforts today, please take a second to click the Thumbs Up button below.

 

I am glad that you joined in! 

 

Have a great day!

Hello @EmeraldAvenger,

 

No I haven't tried any of the methods you suggested. But I contacted HP Support Assistant and they have been of great help. My Notebook works fine as of now. Thanks to you ,now I know how to escape from a troublesome BIOS update in the future, which HP hopefully will not provide.

 

Thank you.

 

Keep up the good work!
