Solved!

Requirement of BIOS Hp HDX16 1025nr

HP Recommended
Hp HDX16 1025nr
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello everyone. I require the BIOS for this model of laptop Hp HDX16 1025nr. The version installed is F.23 from April 30, 2009.

 

It screwed up after using it with Windows 10, it affects the ignition of the machine. Another user was having the same issue and told me it was solved by reinstalling the BIOS.

 

Thank you in advance for your time.

Thank you very much for the provided information.

 

Excuse me for my ignorance, should I double click on the exe file? it will do the updating automatically?

You're very welcome.

 

You are running Windows 7 on there, correct?

 

HOW TO USE:
1. Download the file by clicking the "Download" or "Obtain Software" button and saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where the downloaded file is saved).

2. Double-click the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen instructions.

Yes, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits.

 

Alright, it automatically downloaded the exe file when I opened the exe link you shared.

 

I have two other questions before opening it. I forgot to mention that the one installed is REV 3.5, while the updated version you shared says is REV A, does this generates any conflict or there's no problem at all? 

 

Do you suggest any precaution before updating?

 

Thanks again.

You're very welcome.

 

According to the info page, the update is good for all HP HDX 16's, so there should be no problems running the update.

I see, ok. I updated it and it went well, except for the part that the laptop continues having the ignition issue.

I have to press several times the Power button, the lights come on, but not the laptop, until in one of those attemps, it turns on. It keeps "forgetting" the time, I mean, it is deconfigured in both BIOS and Windows. 

 

I thought that the solution was to reinstall or update the BIOS, since I already changed the RTC battery three times and all of them are new. 

 

What do you think it might be? Any suggestion is very much appreciated. Thank you.

Unfortunately, I wouldn't know why that is happening, or what to do about it.

 

Most likely the BIOS chip on the motherboard has a problem, since replacing the RTC battery did not resolve the time and date settings being lost.
