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.)

Hi i'd like to restore a previous bios to my computer or have support help me with getting it to support ACPI devices. I bought a GDC Beast and a GTX graphics card, plugged it in to my mini-pci slot and tried to boot, was greeted by a blue screen that said this bios is not ACPI Compliant, so which bios would I need to use to make the error go away and boot using my graphics card? The current bios file is sp77491.exe and it hasnt been updated since 2016.Thanks for your help.

i have a older hp pavilion ze 4200 and a while back my son tried to flash the bios and something was done wrong. now my laptop won't boot up or do anything, it just sits there.
is there a way and how can i flash the bios to be able to use this thing again. another issue is no floppy drive just a dvd/cd rom so I'm guessing it would have to be some kind of bootable cd or dvd. please help
thanks in advance

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

I can't figure out how to get into the bios of my HP Pavilion 500-314. When I boot the pc there is no screen that indicates what key I press to boot into bios, it just automatically goes into the HP loading screen.

A:How to boot up into the BIOS of HP Pavilion 500-314

Hi: Normally, you can tap the ESC key at the beginning of the HP splash screen to get a menu of options. From that list, select the F10 boot options menu. If that doesn't work, then see if you can get into the BIOS using the method described at the link below. Watch the video.  All brand PC's with W8.1 have this feature. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZcYbxOcPV0 If that doesn't work, unfortunately, I don't have any other suggestions to offer.

However, the BIOS currently on my machine is version F.49. Wouldn't F.49 be newer than F.48?

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 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
 

A:HP Pavilion Bios UPdate

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.

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.

@Dalla1974 Sorry, but HP makes their BIOS updates OS-version specific.  This means that to do a BIOS update in Win10, the HP site must have an update for that version OS. If you try to run a BIOS update for a different OS version, that will likely fail and error out due to OS version mismatch.

I have a HP 550-036 desktop running Win 10.  Last week I received an upgrade notice from the HP tool installed on the computer.  I downloaded and started to install the upgrade.  It went smoothly for a while, then told me it was going to upgrade the BIOS and reboot. It said I would receive a few beeping noises and the monitor would go blank after the reboot.  It prompted me to go ahead with the upgrade and reboot; I accepted. I received a few beeps, and the monitor went blank, but the desktop never booted up. I left it alone for about 9-10 hours - no change.  Now I cannot get it to reboot or go into the bios. I tried the power reset - no change. I tried my system recovery disk - no change. i tried the F10 bios reset - no change.  The system has power; the power lite goes on and off.  I can hear the fan, but i do not hear the disk drive.  I cannot get into the BIOS at all.  What is wrong?

Is there a BIOS update to this that I can try to see if it fixes the problem? If so, will I need to put Windows XP back on the computer to update the BIOS?

A:Bios update for HP Pavilion a1550y

Hi there @sailor99, Welcome to the HP Support Forums!  I understand that you are trying to get your system to working with Windows 10, and you are having issues with the graphics adapter.  I am happy to give you a hand with this. Please verify and post the full product number for your computer. See the following, if you need help with that information.  HP Desktop PCs - How Do I Find My Model Number, Serial Number or Product Number? Depending on the operating systems supported and the BIOS files available for the model, I can see what I suggest. However up front if an available BIOS update was designed for Windows XP, it will not likely install, unless a required OS is installed. I the newest drivers available for the computer are for Windows 7, then those are the ones you will want to have completely updated, but since the system is old enough to have Windows XP drivers and BIOS updates, it is not likely to have WIndows 10 drivers available. The older a system is, the more likely it is going to have issues of some sort with Windows 10. Anyway, please let me know the model information when you can.

I'm having a very unpleasant problem, I decided to help out a friend with his hp pavilion, he wanted an upgrade from win me to win xp pro, the machine wouldn't even boot properly (taking an hour to get to the desktop because it was so full of junk) so instead of fooling around with it, i stuck a 3 1/2 floppy in with an ME start up disk and did the fdisk thing but didn't format yet. i did this later on though, it would not install now when i boot up, it gives an error message about the time not being correct and that's it, it won't go any farther, oh, and I left the battery off over night hoping it would reset the cmos, now when i go to the bios setup to try and correct the problem it responds to the keyboard commands for about 7-10 seconds then just quits responding altogether, it doesn't give me time to set the time/clock or anything,it just freezes up and I don't know how else to clear the cmos settings, the hp site tells me there are no jumper settings, what does a guy do, I don't want to buy my friend a computer for this, thinking that i may have screwed up something. any ideas, clear cmos settings, etc?????

Does anyone know if it is possible to change the bios boot preferences to a USB device in a HP Pavilion desktop pc? (Bios 3.14)

At first glance there appears to be no option to change the preferences to boot from a USB device; but since I'm a novice and my computer is totally new and up to date, surely it's possible to boot from a USB device, is it?!

The bios only has the option to boot from a cd/dvd drive or a hard drive. There are other options but they are disabled, such as a floppy drive.

I'd be really grateful for any help.

If you are curious: I want to turn my external hard drive into a live usb drive for a linux os.

yours,

dahliorse
