In my opinion this really depends. As you described that your Notebook is booting to a blank/black screen it seems it may have been bricked. If so, BIOS/motherboard may need to be replaced. In my friends case who did flash this update, he has warranty and has approached HP. HP has registered a request to replace his motherboard after diagnosing the issue, so you may want to get the issue diagnosed first.

HP BS-145TU BIOS update

As a follow up on this post, I would like to bring to everyone's notice that HP has released another update dated Jan 18'th 2019. This BIOS update version has been marked F.51 and is listed in the website for the BS-145TU. However, this update as well may render your notebooks bricked. As I have downloaded the update, I have observed that f.51 is also not applicable for this particular model. In the attached screenshots, you will find that when installting F.42 (soft paq# sp93384), it clearly mentions that it is supported for the 15 series laptops. When trying to install F.51 (soft paq# sp91630), it does not say so. Hence, advising a word of caution for users who are thinking of flashing or updating to this version.f42.PNGF.42f51.PNGF.51

Do not install it for now. I have seen several posters with same F.42  BIOS  listed on support page and were pushed another version by HP SA. It was F.54 not F51. Those owners all ended up with a no-boot laptop. Can you confirm if HP SA is offering you F.51 or F.54?

I am trying to find out more about this.

Really wished it could be helped. :Crying:

If you still have warranty, please get in touch with HP and they would most likely replace your motherboard.

Update: I tried getting in touch with HP multiple times to inform them about this issue that has plagued so many users. All attempts made failed in either HP getting back to me or the support representative not understanding the issue at all. It wasn't until I wrote an email to the customer support services head that someone knowledgeable got back to me and after hearing the entire ordeal decided to take action against this. He assured me that the faulty update would be taken down and as i can see presently, it has been taken down from the website. Hopefully they don't make a mess again.

HP BS-145TU BIOS update

I have HP Notebook 15 - bs091ms. I updated my bios on this January 2018 through downloading this bios from HP's website using the exact model no. of the notebook.The bios which I installed was ver. F.51 Rev.A. I updated it from ver.F.42 Rev.A. Now to my utter surprise when I went to HP page and browse the software download section of this HP model Notebook, I was amazed to see that the new updated bios (ver.F.51 Rev A) is completely missing from the download section and only the old bios (F.42 Rev.A) is available for download which is was issued in August 2018 I think. So HP pulled it out from its server. But I already updated to the new version and my Laptop is running ok without any brick or hiccups yet. So is there any way to downgrade to Firmware F.42 RevA from F.51 RevA? If not can I reinstall the old bios again?
