Hi,

 

      Since you mentioned that the tablet is going to  a screen with the title HP bios update.The system bios is being recovered. Please provide me the product number and serial number of unit so i can check for solution.

 

If it is a android tablet you try performing the steps below.

 

With the tablet powered off, press and hold the volume up (+) button and power button at the same time for about five seconds. ...

 

When the Android system recovery menu displays, use the volume down (-) button to highlight Wipe data/factory reset.

 

 

 

******Clicking the Thumbs-Up button is a way to say -Thanks!.******

Hello Agustin_mexico... I'm very sorry that you're running into this issue with your x2 tablet.

 

Agustin, I'd like for you to try the following:

  • From another PC, download and run the current BIOS SoftPAQ for your unit.  You can find it here.
  • Again, you are running the SoftPAQ on the PC you downloaded on.  When you run the SoftPAQ, chose the option to "Create BIOS Recovery Drive".  You'll need a small USB flash drive ("disk on key") plugged in to the system... a recovery drive will be created.

  • After creating the recovery drive, remove it and insert it directly into your powered down x2 tablet's USB port.
  • Power up the tablet.  The unit should go through the BIOS Update / recovery process.  Upon completion of the process, the unit should reboot into Windows.

 

If the tablet does not reboot into Windows at that point, you can try a hard reset of the device.  That would involve removing the tablet from the keyboard, pressing and holding the power button for a minimum of 10 seconds, waiting for about 15 seconds, then powering up the unit.

 

If you cannot boot into Windows at that point, I would be concerned that the BIOS chip or memory on the system board has become corrupted beyond recovery, and you would need to contact HP for service.

 

I hope this helps.  Let us know what happens!
