Hello, I have downloaded and created the recovery on multiple different hp notebooks and the HP Victus BIOS screen does not show up, I'm sure that I completed every step in the YouTube video but it still stays in a blank state with blinking lights on the caps lock

Hello @PT04 

 

Do you have valid HP warranty ?

HP Recommended

As of now, I don't. It expired a while ago

Hello @PT04 

 

Costly action:

The BIOS can be reflashed with a "programmer" by a professional notebook (chip level) repair store. But there is no guarantee that the notebook will continue to work 100% after that.

 

Alternative:

Buy a good used or new notebook

 

You decide

 

Kind regards

Thank you for taking time out of your week, it really meant a lot to try and help fix my problem. I will probably try to get the chip repaired in order to not lose weeks work of school work on it.

Hello @PT04 

You're welcome!

 

Your data (school work) is on the <hard disk>. This can be read out with a USB-to-SSD adapter.

 

Keep me updated

Good luck
