Welcome to the HP Forums, this is a great location to get assistance! I read your post and see that you are having issues in updating the BIOS. I would like to help you resolve this issue.


However, I will need a few details to provide an accurate solution,

When did this issue start?

Did you do any hardware or software changes?



Start with a hard reset to release any excessive static on the PC: 

  • If Windows is open, click Start and then Shutdown. 

  • If Windows is not open and the computer has power, press and hold the power button on the computer until the computer shuts off. 

  • With the pogo through the were off, disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer. 

  • With the power off and the power cord disconnected, press the power button on the computer for 5 seconds. The power light indicator on or near the power button might turn on briefly but then go out. 

  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the power. 

Attempt to reset or recover the existing BIOS (if the recent update was interrupted): Click here

Let me know how it goes.
