HP Z4 G4
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just recieved my new desktop and everything was fine.  Until I started swapping out SSD for bigger versions and went into the UEFI to disable Secure Boot.  The mistake I made was forgetting what F keys you pressed and I was unfamiliar with the Z4.  So it occasionally will appear off while it's doing UEFI maintenence.  Usually there is a click, some dead time and then things kick back on.  Well it was the second time it did this and I figured it was booting and I was hitting F9, F11 and the Del keys one after the othner trying to get something to happen.  Ofcourse I was looking for F10.

In any event, after that moment the system came up with an error saying to the effect that a firmware update had failed to complete on the following controller and underthat listed the premium front I/O USC-C device.  I tried reboot to update agian option but that did not make a difference.  The system would boot normally but the rear fan was running on high non stop.  

 

I tried updating to the lates BIOS and also flashed the Premium IO panel firmware with the latest version from HP.  Nothing changed.  I wound up unplugging the cord that feeds the USB-C.  Now I get an error about that when booting, which isn't great but the rear fan is running normally.

 

The question is, can it be fixed?  If so how or should I just get it replaced.
