Q: hp pavilion dm3-1011tu BIOS

I have my hp pavilion dm3-1011tu notebook. I would like to format it but the BIOS screen is very complex

Preferred Solution: hp pavilion dm3-1011tu BIOS

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

@Akdeniz52 I always recommend: please don't touch to BIOS if you do not know what are you looking for. Because playing around with BIOS is a shortest way to brick your machine. Now, why you need to touch to BIOS just for format your machine ? Regards.

I am not able to boot my notebook. Here's what happened: 1) I restarted my  Notebook after installing Windows Update.2) After it restarted and  I logged in, it said "Preparing Windows" and this went on for about 15-20 mins. So, I decided to   force it to shutdown, so that I would be able to boot into safe mode.3) I turned on the notebook once again and I was greeted with a black screen.4)I tried to boot into the BIOS, but nothing happened. The only options that work are "System Information" and "System Diagnostics".5) I ran a full hardware test through diagnostics and all the components passed the test.6) Then I used HP's 3-in-1 USB Diagnostics Key to restore the BIOS.     My Sytem Board ID is 1896 and the BIOS ID was 1894.     It updated my BIOS version from F.23 to F.25  Even after flashing the BIOS about 3-4 times, nothing is shon on the screen.Please Help me ASAP!!!

Hi: See if this works... Download the drivers from this link below (second file listed -- 64 bit). https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx??agr=Y&ProdId=2101&DwnldID=23060&keyword=Intel+Rap... Extract (copy) the files onto a usb flash drive without any folders. With the flash drive and W7 installation media in the machine, boot from the W7 installation media. After you select the install now option, select the Drive Options - Advanced menu, then select the Load Driver option. You should now see the storage driver files listed. If you check the box, it will only include the compatible driver. Follow the prompts and hopefully, W7 will install.

Hi i'd like to restore a previous bios to my computer or have support help me with getting it to support ACPI devices.

hello, 2 days ago my laptop was working fine but when i turned it on yesterday it would not load up all it would do is power on a blank screen and the caps lock would flash twice and stop and flash twice again. i looked it up and saw that it was a "bios" problem and to manually fix it was to hold down the windows + b key and turned it on and needles to say it didnt work. i even try to reset it by taking out the battery and holding down the power button to see if that'll help and nope. today i look online to see if theres a way i can fix it but so far all i see is to take it apart to look at the fan or some part near the fan. to be honest i don't feel comfortable taking apart my laptop at all  (i dont mind doing the programing and stuff though) and i was wondering if theres something else i can do to get this problem fixed asap.please help and thank you

Hello HP-team! I've got "hp pavilion 23 aio pc", CZC240BKNV, model 23-b000ec, which doesn't boot. No screen, no POST-sounds. 1. I downloaded sp67096, 70065 and 70066, copied the BIOS to the USB-Flash and tried to recover it via Win+B (+Power) keys combination, but unsuccessfully: no any result. 2. I tried to read data from Windond W25Q64 Flash memory using the external SPI-programmer, connected to ROM-RECOVERY connector, but unsuccessfully also. 3. I removed mentioned W25Q64 memory from the PCB, soldered the wires to its pins and connected directly to programmer, but still w/o results. Thus I decided W25Q64 got NG and has to be replaced. 4. I found S25FL165K (manufacturer is Spansion), soldered it onto PCB and flashed via ROM-RECOVERY connector using the external SPI-programmer. I tried to burn LEE_816.ROM (from sp67096), LIN_8011.BIN (from sp70065) and LEE_817.ROM (fro)sp70066). The flashing process "per se" finished successfully always, but PC doesn't start as well. After I turn it on, it restarts only after some seconds. The screen is black, no any sound. So may the problem be in S25FL165K compatibility?

I purchased this laptop in December with Windows 10 installed. A few weeks ago I started getting a notification in Support Assistant to update the system BIOS.  No matter how many times I run the update the notification persists and the Action Log has never recorded this update as having taken place. After checking with this Forum, it appears that other users have had issues with BIOS updates, and HP Support cautions against updating the System BIOS unless there is a compelling reason to do so. 1. Since I am not having any issues which would compell such an update, should I simply dismiss the notification? 2. If such an update is not advised, why does Support Assistant display its notification? 3. Would dismissing the notification render this Notebook suseptible to security vulnerabilities? 4. The instructions on the HP website for updating theSystem BIOS are considerably more complicated than the procedure launched from Support Assistant. What exactly is this?  The update in Support Assistant is Softpac number SP76353, Version F.19Ap1, Size 8.89MB.

A:HP Pavilion BIOS Update

Hi @LAB7, Thank you for posting at HP Forums! I have read your post and wanted to help. I understand that you have some questions about updating the BIOS. I agreed that if there is no problem with current system running, it is not necessary to update the BIOS. However, HP support assistant will populate the notification once there is a newer version of the BIOS. You can dismiss the message and it will not cause security problems. There is another way to update the BIOS, by downloading it from HP support page. You can put your product number here on this link: http://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers. Select the right OS on the page, it will show the most updated drivers of your model including the BIOS. Hope these could help. Let me know if you need further assistance. If this post helps you to reach a solution, please click the "Accept as Solution" button down below in this message.

Hi Guys-n-Gals
I have an HP Pavilion DV9500 Laptop
I have Ubuntu Linux on a Samsung HM500JJ 500Gb HDD in bay one, boots with
no problems at all.
I have Windows XP PRO SP3 preinstalled on a WD1600BEVS 160Gb hdd in bay two, drive not seen in BIOS so I do not have a choice to boot from it.
Ubuntu Linux still boots fine no problems.
Second HDD Win XP is seen by Ubuntu Linux and I can access folders on the drive
with no problems, so nothing wrong with drive or OS.
If I take out the drives and put the WD160 drive in bay one leaving the second bay empty it boots fine into Windows with no problems.
If I take out the WD drive and put it in bay two leaving bay one empty I get no boot, operating system not found.
If I take out the Samsung500 drive and put it in bay two leaving bay one empty I get no boot, operating system not found.
So either disk will boot fine when in drive bay one.
Neither disk will boot when in drive bay two.
If both drives are in both bays either way round the drive in the second bay will not show in the BIOS and will not boot
Question? How do I solve this problem, HP as usual are no help.
Thanks in anticipation of any help.

I got a big problem. A friend asked me to update his OS on a HP Pavilion 900MHZ desktop. So i did. He also asked to upgrade his memory from from 256mb to 512mb. So i tried. He has the 168pin Sdram DIMM. One stick worked fine. But when I put in the second stick it errors. "bios not acpi compliant"

So i looked up the error. First i found that i can just turn off the acpi in cmos and it will work. No option in cmos. Then I found to redo the install and at the setup screen hit F7 instead of F6. Did not work. Blue screen during install. Also found that i need to update the bios. Went to HP site. NOthing there. Went to motherboard site. Its an asus k7m board. Got the updated bios. Got the flash program. No luck. Says bios/chipset not found. CAnnot flash the bios. Thing is i am stuck. Got the memory from a local computer shop. He had to special order it since its so old. He will not take it back. $70. I need to flash this bios.

Anybody know where i can find a flash that will upgrade the bios or a website to help me with this?

The memory stick is good. I can put either one in and it works fine, just not both. Very frustrated.

Thanks

What model Pavillion is it? Many times though you have an asus mobo the Bios has been customized for HP to work with it. And the motherboard may also not be a standard asus K7m motherboard, being a custom setup for HP.

Hi, i have this HP Pavilion DV5 laptop which is causing me some problems

I am currently testing two different hard drives with this laptop, and I can confirm that they are working fine.

When I turn the laptop on, the HP logo shows up a couple seconds later, and I have the option of entering the "startup menu". If i don't enter it, then it proceeds to a black screen around 5 seconds later. While this is happening, the hard drive light goes flashes on and off until the black screen. After that, the hard drive light does not flash any more. The computer is not able to boot properly, and it cannot start Windows.

However, if i enter the startup menu, than I can run diagnostics on the hard drive, and open BIOS.
The hard drive test passes easily, but it is not being recognized on BIOS. I neither can enable or disable the "notebook hard drive" because it is not contained in that list.

I should also add that these hard drives are working fine 100%, because i use them on different Laptops. (HP Pavilion DV4 and Acer Aspire One).

Please help with any suggestions.

My HP Pavilion g4-1125dx  will not start this morning.  It was running last night and did a normal shutdown.This morning first try to start just got power light and Cap lock light steady but black screen.  I can hear the fan running and the DVD drive moves.  Tried again many times and from then on I only get the power light and black screen.  The Caps lock no longer lights.  The DVD does still try to go.  I tried a HP Recovery Disk in the DVD drive, but I don't think it is getting past POST so nothing happens. I have done the hard reset (pull battery and power, hold power button, restart with just power cord. Ihave tried reboot with esc, F2, F8, F9, F10, F11, to try to get the BIOS screen, but it never comes.I Tried the windows logo button with B key and power.  Still no BIOS. Lastly I have tried the online No Power No Boottrou leshoogting page.  I want to download the BIOS to USB.  as shows in that page but the BIOS update utility is not the same as shown on the example and I don't want to mess up my other computer by doing something wrong.  The troubleshooting page shows a screen shot of the "HP System BIOS Update Utiity" and it shows an option to create recovery USB flash drive.   The actual BIOS utility downloaded is called InsydeFlash V 4.21 and at least on the startup screen it does not show the option to create the USB flash drive.  It has a warning that you are about to upda...

Ok, i'm working on a friends pc, he has a whole bunch of crap on it, viruses, spyware...ect.. I told him I would fix it now the problem is, I want to format the hard drive and put XP back on it. The problems are, the cd rom is broke, so I am using the dvd drive, and the floppy is broke. I put my XP cd in and it dosnt boot, I know its bootable. So I was going to edit the bios but when the computer boots, most computer say press [f whatever here] to go to bios. Well his just goes automaticly to boot from hd after showing the HP logo stuff. No bios. Any ideas?

Please reply,
Thanks

Can't locate any BIOS updates, nor any driver updates, from HP's site - not that I don't get my driver updates from elsewhere. Updating the BIOS is my last hopeful act before scrapping this motherboard, since the old BIOS doesn't support my new graphics card (Asus GeForce GTX 750 Ti, no extra power requirement, although I did buy a 600-watt PSU to replace the junkware 300-watt PSU that came with the PC). I am aware the latest update almost certainly won't fix the problem, but I've got nothing to lose at this point. I'd gladly swap the card to an MSI model which, according to the Internet, works with older BIOS versions, but my retailer won't refund products if they have been installed once (even if they don't work). When connected, the PC beeps thrice - once every 20 seconds or so - and gets stuck on a black screen with a flashing cursor. You can probably see how this is a problem.The specifications of my PC seem to be the same as these, with the exception of a different product number and the upgraded PSU (and no, that page lists no updates, either):http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?sp4ts.oid=5151865&calledBy=&docId=emr_na-c03068621...And, as you can probably guess, the BIOS has never been updated before, meaning it's v7.13. If no update is available, makes it worse by bricking my sweet baby Jesus motherboard, or doesn't fix my problem, are there any budget motherboards I could buy that are fully compatible with my system (yes, the Asus...

A:Bios Recovery on pavilion DV5-1111ea

managed to find the correct way to reflash my bios.  I downloaded the UEFI Support Environment, I used version 5. there might be a newer version now http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-114650-1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0002 then downloaded the latest Bios version for my laptop, the .exe unzips to a SwSetup on the local drive. In that folder are 1 or more .FD files, these are the Bios files. There is also a file called platform.ini, in this file it has the names of what the laptop looks for. You'll find it under [Platform_Check] when you open the file with a text editor. I ran the UEFI support environment and chose to install it on my 4GB usb, it was formatted to FAT32, default allocation size. The software should name it to HP_Tools and have a Hewlett-Packard folder inside it. I put the .FD file that I renamed to what was listed in the platform.ini file (3600 was the one that worked for this specfic laptop) in to the folders: Hewlett-Packard\BIOS\current and Hewlett-Packard\BIOS\previous Just to make sure I also made copies of those files in the same folder and changed their extensions to .bin and .rom. I also made copies of those 3 files to the root of the usb,just because got tired of copying and renaming files. With this usb in my Laptop I held down the Windows key + B and powered it on (make sure the power c...
