Q: PC desktop HP Pavilion a6655it ( Help Bios )

Hi, I hope someone can help me.I updated the bios of my HP a6655it latest 5:43, after you format a windows vista since it is compatible only with that, power okay, when I go to install the updates you install intel do not remember exactly, and storage ... when you restart your computer comes with a blue screen "boot inaccessible and something .." so I formatted the pC again with 10 windows, and I put the 5:35, seems to be all right but the problems are now 3. 1. What is the default version of my bios? 2. Went back to the 5:35 version, but when I install intel storage ... always blue screen and then I have to format and undo the updates to Intel .... 3. I have my doubts that the default version is the 5:35. Can you help me? I would go back to the version of the default bios and not the updated HP A6655it you can? what is the default version of my pc?

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.)

Hello! I am really looking forward to overclock my RAM speeds and to do that, I must enter the BIOS. I have looked up tutorials but no success.

I checked under Advanced and it has Power-On Options, BIOS Power-On, Bus Options and Device Options. I am stuck and I am not really sure if this even IS BIOS.

I tried to update the BIOS from A0.02 (current) to A0.05 (newer). I downloaded the file from the HP downloads site and ran the file. It was unsuccessful. Giving an error in white screen saying "cannot open BIOS file" or something like that. This is the first red flag. Being a relatively techy person, I extracted the .bin file and try to update it manually from within the BIOS itself. The second red flag is the white screen shows "Your current BIOS version: A0.02,  Your new BIOS version will be: 00.00" Then I double check the file size, where I got it from and after I'm sure that HP website is giving me the right file, I proceed with the update by pressing ENTER. The process went smoothly, and the moment it requires me to restart, I click restart. And the computer never turns on again. Just the power led light near the power button at the back keep turning on for 4 seconds, then off for 3 seconds, in a never ending loop. To make things worse, I can't recover the BIOS using the HP backup drive within the computer coz I just formatted the entire harddrive. When I tried running the sp74236.exe file again on another PC to get the program to make me a recovery BIOS on a USB Drive, I figured that I need the A0.02 BIOS in order for it to work, which in this case, I only have the A0.05. So please HP provide me with a A0.02 BIOS file so I could save my computer. Thanks. It seems like it is apparent that the BIOS file HP gave is a wrong one.

Hi all,


I know there are threads like this posted already but I am having problems with my HP Pavilion DV6-1120sa 3GB RAM Windows 7 laptop (Upgraded from pre-installed Vista with clean install).


Two days ago, Sophos Endpoint found a Memory trojan virus but gave no option to Quarantine/Remove or seek help of any kind. I got two BSOD in the space of 10-15 minutes not long after this and decided to reinstall two night's ago to be safe.

Problem is, after formatting and reinstalling Windows 7 with the Windows 7 disc the desktop would freeze up and I'd need to shut down, this happened 10-20 times so far since reinstalling and no sooner did it start, it happens with the BIOS as well when trying to access settings.
Either the laptop shuts down without warning or freezes and then several seconds later shuts down both in the BIOS and logged in. My laptop no longer restarts as it tries to start up and shuts down before or during POST.

What I have checked since reinstallation:

-sfc /scannow: found corrupt files and repaired them.

-Memory Test when I got into Startup Menu: laptop froze and shut down seconds later.

-Windows Memory Diagnostic: froze and shut down.

-Check Disk: 100% completed and found no errors.

-MemTest86+ through Ubuntu Live CD: ran for 1-3 minutes before freezing and shutting down.

-Reseated both 1gb and 2gb memory sticks

-removed both sticks and ran MemTest86+ on each: 1gb and 2gb individually tested in both Memory Slots. Again laptop froze and... Read more

You may still have some sort of infection lingering on the hard disk that didn't get cleaned off. If you decide to format again make sure you do a diskpart clean all first. Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

Are you running off battery or power adapter when these crashes occur?
Have you tried using different RAM?
Is your laptop overheating?

If you can, I would like to see a report of your system

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.

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.

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? It has same protocol, capacity, but there are also some differences, which might be significant. So my questions are: a). Is S25FL165K ( Spansion) compartible with my PCB? Or do I have to use Windond W25Q64 exactly? Or something different? b). As I mentioned, I tried to flash *.rom or *.bin files from sp*****.exe-packages, downl... Read more

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 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.

Tomorrow is an extension of today but yesterday is just a memory

Sounds like it is a mobo issue. "Bay 2" connection is bad.

A:how to go into bios on hp pavilion g6 using windows 8.1

Hi, Try the following. Shut down the notebook - do this by holding down the left Shift key as you click on Shutdown to temporarily prevent a hybrid boot.  Tap away at the esc key as you start the notebook to access the Start-up Menu and then select the Bios option ( f10 ). Regards, DP-K

I downloaded the new BIOS from the HP support page for the 569, it's BIOS A0.07 Rev A from 2016-10-06.  I currently have BIOS ver 80.06 from 2015-04-01.  I tried to install from the UEFI BIOS firmware upgrade menu and it says "BIOS image did not pass validation".  I also tried to install from within Windows 10 and the option to upgrade is greyed out and below its says BIOS is not compatitble with my system.  Should this BIOS upgrade be on the 569 support page?
