I recently ran the BIOS update after being prompted by HP's software. The Bios update seemed to have become stuck because it just sat there at a black screen for a long time doing nothing. Finally, I shut it down and now same thing - black screen with no errors, beeps, or anything. The fan and lights come on but nothing else. I tried pressing Win+B and other than fan & lights, nothing comes on and screen is still black. I tried downloading the BIOS update from the HP website and ran it so that it would put on a USB but again, nothing when I install the USB and boot it up. I've also tried pressing the Escape key with no reaction. This really pisses me off. First the graphics card went out on this machine that is not very old and now this. I'm becoming very disappointed in HP's products.
Here is my model# HP Pavilion 510-120G
Is there anything else I can try short of taking it to a repair shop that would charge more than this is worth?
