  1. Unplug the AC power from the computer.
  2. Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.
  3. Release the power button.
  4. The computer will power on and should boot normally after releasing the power button.
  5. Re-connect the AC power to the computer.

If no change-contact HP for warranty service:

What a supper "experts" advice. Laptop with killed bios must alive after - Unplug the AC power and plug again(push power button)?

Are you seriusly? sometimes it's better to keep silent than to say anything like this.

Did you think i dont try off laptop ?

Maybe somebody has more reasonable advice?

Actually that is in one of HP's own documents. A little common courtesy will take you a lot further in getting help on a public forum. Your rudeness may have just closed a door.

I did solve same issue. The  problem was that the new BIOS  01.08.01 killed my laptop. It ends up with 3 long beeps and 2 short beeps error.

Investigation showed that the new BIOS doesn't support my memory config 8 Gb stock + 16 Gb additionally. 

The solution is to downgrade the BIOS  to 01.02.04 from here https://support.hp.com/ro-en/document/c05945473

Important note that you should detach all drives from laptop before starting with recovery flash inserted and WIN+B otherwise it wouldn't search recovery on the flash. another way to recover is to start the laptop with additional memory detached and launch the BIOS downgrade tool from OS
