  4. Sir/maam this method did not work for me. I have hp 15-ba021ax. Before my bios settings got corrupted i had dual boot enabled….what i mean is that i had backtrack and windows 10 installed. Somehow i first ended up deleting my some partitions….but at that time my bios settings were there. Then i tried booting with kali linux , but at that time (when i opened the bios settings) bios settings hanged, no buttons would work while bios settings were on….so i ended up removing my battery to fix it. Thats when my bios settings disappeared and screen got blank and i ended up with corrupted bios . Please helpme.

  7. My DV7 2140ed crashed during heavy workload, froze and never started up again. Ik get those two flashes (BIOS corruption). When I use the win+B / power button, the laptop will power off after 2/3 seconds, and nothing happens. It simply powers down (like it isn't detecting the keyboard, and only detects pressing the power button). Pressing (still holding the win+b) power will simply repeat the blinking LED codes… An USB drive formatted with FAT/FAT32 with the BIOS in .bin / .fd / .rom doens't work either, like it isn't detected. I'm fairly sure that the original drive with partitions is still intact. Any suggestions? Please help!

  9. Hi, I have a DV6- 2020sa. When I turn it on the caps/numb lock flash
    twice then a pause, then flash twice, etc. fans everything boots up but
    blank screen.. I read it could be a corrupt bios so I downloaded the
    bios image from the hp support website, extracted 3536F12.fd file and
    renamed it 3536F12.bin and copied it to the root of my flash drive as
    advised. plugged it in then held win key + B and turned it on. It fires
    up, after a short while I get two beeps then it just powers off and
    restarts. After that it just repeats the 2 beeps off.. Any ideas?

  33. Hi please help I need to update my BIOS for Compaq Presario CQ40-141TU. I can't obtain the files from Support Site, where can I go to?

  34. I have a HP Pavilion DV7 (about 6 years old). I didn't use the flash USB to repair the BIOS. Instead I watched several more videos. When turning the system on, repeatedly tap the F10 key, and wah-lah – my BIOS screen magically appeared and I was able to fiddle with the boot options. Problem solved!

  35. Hello Sir, I have a problem with my HP Pavilion x360 – 13-u171tu, P/N : 1AD72PA#AR6. It shows blue box windows and I have to fill with password. After 3-4 time failed, it show the code [i 92327232] . Can you help me how to find out the password ? thank you.

  36. HP should look into this matter…the method is not working on HP 15 Laptop (bs-091ms). Because of HP's stupid mistake I have updated my Bios to F.51 from F.42 Rev A through HP support assistant. Now I cannot downgrade or reinstall the bios because HP has remove this specific bios F.51 from its website as it was giving issues to most people like me who are stuck with this stupid bios update by HP. HP either provide us a new bios update or help us roll back to the original bios that is F.42 Rev A…

  37. Today I figured it out the hard way on my HP Laptop 15. Follow exactly the steps mentioned here:
    (Use these steps only if you cannot see anything on the monitor)

    Turn off the computer by taking out the battery and then reinserting it.

    Connect the notebook to a power source using the power adapter.

    Press and hold the Windows key  and the B key at the same time while the computer is off.

    While still pressing both keys, hold down the Power button for just 1 second, and then release the Power button and the keys.

    The power LED light remains on, and the screen remains blank for about 40 seconds. You might hear beeping sounds. Afterwards, an HP BIOS Update screen displays, and the BIOS update begins.

    But this will not downgrade or anything…it will restore the same version of the bios if its corrupted.

  38. I have HP Zbook 17 G2. When I plug in it power on and show 3 time white flash from front light indicator and also I can't turn power on. I tried windows + B with USB Bios recovery. Still not showing anything. Does anyone know it please.

  39. All very well and good but where do I get the BIOS download from to make the USB key BIOS recovery image from ??? I wouldn't need it in the first place if it wasn't for HP's stupid BIOS update which has killed my board !!! out of warranty. MAYBE HP DO THIS ON PURPOSE, SO WE HAVE TO BUY A NEW LAPTOP !!!

  40. Every time i try to recover my bios it fails. Keeps saying "Verification of the flashed BIOS image failed" ive tried different flashdrive older version of the bios but no success :/ i cant boot my laptop as it is stuck on a black screen that says press esc to startup menu
