Laptop freezes while performing a BIOS update




I've tried recently to update my BIOS after facing many blue screens desipite the fact that i did 3 fresh installation of windows.


I had the F.16, i downloaded the last one from the HP site and tried to install it, now the installation is stuck and i can do nothing about it, i can't remove the battery cause it will cancel my warrenty.


I would apperciate any help, i'm afraid that i'm facing a brick of my 2 days old laptop.


And the most important thing is, how HP can missed up with those things ? i'm not the only one to having this problem, how can they allows update that can brick your whole laptop and do nothing about it ? it's absolutly insane.


EDIT : okay after few hours, i can confirm it's a brick, thank you HP.


EDIT 2: i tried to rest BIOS using USB (with the windows key × B method), it wasn't succesful, all what i got is PEI Parameters once, now it keeps restarting showing nothing but a black screen.
