a friend gave me his HP DV6500 Notebook to fix it. He said it made an update and then for hours nothing happened. He shut it and started again.
I could see that it tried to recover 2 times. The second time it was successful but it somehow resetted or returned the Vista to a fresh install!!! His data was locked in a previous User account, I backed it up on a usb-stick with a linux live cd.
I can't make a reinstall because now a bluescreen always appears even when I boot from Vista DVD.
ntoskrnl.exe corrupt when try to boot vista in the normal way.
How can I fix that without being able to use the repair option of the DVD?
Sorry, the title of the thread is wrong. I figured out already that the BIOS version is for an Intel. So everything is ok with the BIOS actually.
Ok, I could fix it after following instructions from this page:
The Txf-log had to be removed and afterwards I was able to use the repair function of the Vista DVD again.
I tried updating the BIOS of my Sony Vaio CS-17G notebook to the latest updates given at the Sony Support Website.
Everything went fine, got message 'BIOS updated successfully', 'Press OK to shut down.'
Pressed ok & now nothing's okay. The system is not booting up!
Tried the following troubleshooting, but no luck;
1) Pressing F2 & F8 keys.
2) Disconnected the AC Adapter, removed the battery & pressed the power button for 60secs.
Still under warranty?

I have an HP Pavilion dv6 7080ee and i ran into an incident where the BIOS got corrupted.

Where did you get the update instructions?Was it from CH?http://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php?topic=95924.0The above link is rather old, don't expect it to be up to date.Instead, search the HP site for the BIOS update for your HP.www.HP.comhttp://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php/topic,158340.0.html
It would appear that my BIOS update has stalled on the screen below...
I've gone to the drivers for my computer to download the newest version of BIOS for my computer. When I download the files to a USB, the instruction manual indicated .exe file for install does not download.
I'm stuck at this point in trying to find a way to give my computer the latest BIOS update.

Hi, i purchased the HP Pavilion 15-ab150sa last weekend and have had lots of problems since getting it. Kept freezing and dropping WI-FI connection shortly after logging on. I found there were 6 updates needing running that wern't automatically showing until i scanned for them in HPSA. Its taken me 4 days to get most of the updates to actually complete and it seems to be working much better now however, I have one update for HP Notebook System NIOS Update (AND Processors) that keeps failing... Any ideas? Please keep it simple i'm not very good with technical info. :-) Greg
Hi Greg, Try the following. If the bios update is still running in HPSA, click the Stop button. Close HPSA, restart the notebook, then download the Bios Update from the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp75001-75500/sp75199.exe When the download has completed, close any other open windows and programs, then open your Downloads folder and double-tap the installer to start the process. The actual flash will occur when the machine restarts - do not interrupt this in any way, even if nothing appears to be happening for a while - when it has completed, the machine will load into Windows as usual. Note: If the option to Update shows as being 'blocked on this device', you will need to Contact HP regarding this. Regards, DP-Khttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Operating-Systems-and-Recovery/HP-Notebook-System-BIOS-Update-And-Processors/td-p/5567631
I've tried to install this update multiple times. Both from HP Support Assistant and after downloading the file directly from your support page and installed it as an administrator. After restart, the update is still visible in the Support Assistant.

Hi, The BIOS update using HP Support Assistant fails. When I try to install the update manually, it crashes, and killed my HDMI port. It appears that the Bios is locked, and the option to selsct that option is greyed out. As such, I can't iupdate the BIOS - and CPU performance has been an issue I was concerned about. It'd be GREAT to install this update. Any ideas? Thanks! - MT
Hello @elixirrr, Thank you for posting on the HP Forums! I came across your post and want to help you update the BIOS for your HP Envy m7. Before attempting the update again, try restoring the BIOS.

After update and restart (update wich I presume included BIOS update), my notebook booted the windows for 5 minutes, then turned off in an instant. After that, when i pluged the power adapter the power led started to blink continuously (white light), and the notebook reused to start (no power, no other led', no nothig, just the blinking of the power light). I've tried to reset It (battery off, 15 seconds power button and all, I even removed the Bios battery). It's not the first time. The last time when It happened, the problem resolved itself after several days. The blink stoped and the window was booted în safe mode.If you have a technical solution please help me, because I can't wait for several days.Thank You!http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/After-Bios-update-the-notebook-doesn-t-boot/td-p/5847070
I have attempted this BIOS update from the HP Support Assistant multiple times. The process appears to compelete sucessuflly. But as soon as I continue, HPSA keeps showing that I need to install it.

Rturner9314 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!You don't say what Model laptop you have, but my guess is that it did NOT come with Win10 preinstalled. Is that right? And if so, did it come with Win7 preinstalled or Win8x? Asking because MS recently pushed out their Anniversary Update and, as evidenced by LOTS of postings on the Win10 community forum, and here, that has been causing serious problems with folks whose Upgraded PCs worked fine with the older versions of Win10 (i.e., 10240, 10587) but not with this new version (14393).We can proceed once you provide the answers. And NO, a BIOS update is NOT going to address this problem; plus, unless you have a very new PC, there is no BIOS update available for it.Thankshttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Notebook-Keyboard-not-working-Bios-Update/td-p/5788027

I implemented a HP Support recommended BIOS update. At the end of the update, I was informed that the computer would be restarted to complete the update. My computer powered up but my screen remained black. I waited an hour and finally did a hard reset. Same result...power is on but nothing shows up on my screen. I did combinations of AC and battery power and but got the same result. How do I resolve this issue?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/BIOS-update-Notebook-won-t-boot-after-System-Restart/td-p/5724984
My computer is a HP 15 Notebook PC, and I use Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit). I recently received notice of a important update regarding an HP Notebook System BIOS Update (AMD Processors). I tried doing the update, but it seems to behave strangely. Creating a restore point, checking available space, connecting to HP servers, and the downloading itself are all marked with a green check, but when it goes to installing, after a few seconds of it, a gray X box shows up beside installing, and all I can do is click 'next', and it leaves. What am I supposed to do? Is this update supremely necessary to keep using my computer as is? Model number: f100dx Product: J2X70UA//ABA
Hi @Nicmurg1? ,Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!I came across your post about the Notebook, and wanted to assist you! I have looked into your issue about your HP 15-f100dx Notebook and issues with the BIOS update.I recommend to restore the BIOS defaults.You could restore the BIOS with this document selecting the reloading the BIOS default settings. Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers on your system that might need updating. This is the only way I would do updates as they are made for your HP Notebook. I hope this helps.

HP ENVY Notebook 17t-n100 did an auto bios update but the screen went black and is setting like this for several hours. The power light was still on last time I looked. I turned on the computer and was reading the message on the screen and before I finished reading the screen it started the bios update and I was too late to stop it. It seemed to be from the HP assistant so after it started I figured it would be OK. Now what do I do? Do I try to restart? And Where do you get to HP support rather than this forum? Does HP monitor this forum or do just other users respond?

My Hp Support Assistant wants me to update my bios . . . I have two questions in regard to this. 1. The software to flash the bios is not compatiable with windows 10. Will it be safe to run anyways? (yes, i installed free upgrade to windows 10) 2. sp71055.exe f42.ap1 (is the file it is recomended to run for my intel i7, the patch notes (always never enough information) state that it restores or provides original bios. my instaled bios version is bios verson / date f/34. 12 19 2014 On a previous occasion i believed i did flash the bios already, and was wondering if I needed to restore to the original version, or is that languague used a little 'off'http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/HP-ENVY-17t-k000-CTO-Notebook-PC-ENERGY-STAR-Bios-Update/td-p/5724790

Hi, my very new HP Spectre x360 convertible often need some updates from HP SUPPORT ASSISTANT.I always accept and install the updates. The last update available :"HP NOTEBOOK SYSTEM BIOS UPDATE (intel processors)- Softpaq number: SP77784 - Version: F.43Ap1Doesn't work.It's saying: "Installation failed". without any others informations.What can i do? thank you.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/F-43Ap1-HP-NOTEBOOK-SYSTEM-BIOS-UPDATE-intel-processors/td-p/5829377
So after getting a notification that I needed to install the HP Notebook System BIOS Update (Intel Processors)I checked the box and clicked install. I waited and waited for it to install but it would never complete. I then attempted it a second time and it dI'd the same thing. After that I left it alone and all of a sudden the screen went blank and told me I needed to install an operating system on my computer. I didn't know what else to do, so I turned it off and then back on again to see if it would start up.

General speaking, you cannot upgrade the video card or GPU in a laptop.
I have a HP pavillion Notebook (DV9700 with Vista) that is suppose to have a built in camera. However I can not access this camera. Is there someway or something I have to do before trying to access the camera?
Hello, I was just wondering if it would be possible for me to upgrade my RAM, it currently is at 8GB, I would like to upgrade it to 16GB or whatever the max is. Thanks!
Hi Yes your notebook should support upto 16 GB I found the link for manuals http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04655126 Page 1/2: memory infoPage 41: how to replacehttp://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Can-I-upgrade-the-RAM-of-my-HP-Pavillion-Notebook/td-p/5697390
Hi I want to instal one SSD disk on my computer. Do anyone now if it is Sata 3 port on this computer ? If it isn`t can I install Sata 3 port or do I have to chang motheboard ! Regards KOB32
Hi: Run this free hardware analyzer that I have zipped up and attached below. Run the file, close the summary window and on the left side of the window, click to expand the Drives section. Then click to expand the sata/atapi drives section. Click on your hard drive name listed there. The first line will be the Drive Controller spec. It will report the hard drive type running at a certain speed. For example Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 6 Gb/s. If your notebook only has a SATA II port, it might report Serial ATA 6 Gb/s @ 3 Gb/s, or Serial ATA 3 Gb/s @ 3 Gb/s.

I am considering buying this laptop at "Office Depot" today. In your expert opinion, guys, is this a good laptop for basic needs? I just need it for a small business situation. I have Office 2003 software to load on it. A techy friend of mine said I may want more speed on the processor but for $949 w/ rebates I think it's a lot of bang for the buck! Please click on the site below and it should take you to their website with specs on it. Thanks in advance for your input!
[/B]I have had the notebook for five years; yesterday the following message:
NTLDR is missing
Press ctrl + alt + del to restart
When the user does the instruction, the boot starts and the message repeats.
I really do not want to do a reinstall of the operating system; if someone has away to reinstall just the boot tracks.
 Is this a virues?
 Is this the work of a hacker?
 Has there been an MS-XP failure?

Hello,I was recently given a pavillion dv9821ea laptop which was in bad shape after being infected with a virus. I eventually had to replace the hard drive and at the same time I upgraded the operating system to windows 7 PRO 64bit. I was unable to save nothing from the origonal hard drive, no drivers, HP software etc and since I installed Windows 7, the laptop seems to have several problems including not downloading Windows updates. I connect it to the HP assistant, but this recognises the laptop and only gives me the choice of Windows Vista as the operating system for which to support drivers etc. I wonder if you could help me by letting me know if there is anywhere I can download Windows 7 pro 64bit drivers for this laptop? my wife and I are both disabled and it would make a great difference to me if I could have full use of this laptop. Regards. Gerald
Hi, Gerald: HP did not support that model for W7, and you should be able to use the Vista drivers from the dv9821ea support page except the BIOS and firmware files. Additionally, you can read this helpful dv9000 W7 upgrade guide for some tips on getting W7 to work just fine on that model. http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Operating-System-and-Recovery/Windows-7-Upgrade-Guide-for-dv60...http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Drivers-for-Pavillion-dv9821ea-entertainment-notebook/td-p/5594190

If you have (and should have) a USB keyboard and mouse connect them and see if they will work.
Since your file system was already corrupted you cloned the bad files to the new drive.
If the USB devices work you should do a Repair Install.
If that doesn't work do this: Using System Recovery, Factory Reset and Minimized Image Recovery Options HP Pavilion dv6-3225dx Entertainment Notebook PC | HP? Support
From this tut:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
On newer models HP Recovery may offer a Minimized OS Recovery option when booting from F11, which retains only the OS, Recovery Manager, HP Support Asst, and HP Wireless LAN. This is as close to a clean reinstall as you can get without doing one yourself.
● If you clean reinstall only to C and leave all other partitions intact, F11 Recovery key should still work later if you need it.
● You can also Extract HP 3rd Party Software from RecovCD.
● Problems with volume control lighting and HP Quick Launch buttons have been dealt with here where you can also get further support.

Hello katrapezo. I understand you're having some trouble recording audio. Have you tried recording in another application such as Sound Recorder? I'd also like you to remove your audio drivers and allow Windows to reinstall them. Here are the steps.Click Start, type "Device Manager," and press Enter.Expand the "Sound, video, and game controllers" section.Right click on your sound card and select "Uninstall."Reboot your computer.Verify whether the problem persists.Also, what is your notebook's product number? This document can show you where it is located.Have a wonderful day.http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/HP-Pavillion-dv6-notebook-audio-recording-issue-windows-7/td-p/2737617
hp pavillion laptop 15-p067ca model, purchased year ago, came with windows 8.1, was not updated to windows 10. seems to have a bug: on start up it welcomes me as a user "vladimir" asks for password and then hangs up forever with the white screen and unresponsive. Password I'm sure is right, because if I type different password, machine comes back with "Incorrect password" message. What do you think is a problem and how to go back to factory settings? I have not made a recovery disc. Any comp supposedly have a recovery partition, and Recovery Manager but how can I do anything if Window does not come up?

Sounds like it might be time for a reinstall to refresh the OS and overcome any lingering infection. Follow these same steps for Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 particularly when it comes to drivers and Updates.
Otherwise work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 including the hardware tests.

Around five days ago, my laptop started not booting up. Finally, I went online and went through the steps of updating the bios from the laptop. It gave gave me the following message after updating the Bios internally:
The CMOS checksum is invalid.
The CMOS will be reset to the default configuration and will be rebooted.
Please check your BIOS Setup options to see if they changed.
CMOS Reset (502)
ENTER - Reboot the system
Now, it won't stay running so I can get to the main screen to put it into any kind of safe mode to analyze whats going on. I'm not sure where to start from here, so I hope someone can guide me in the right direction, pls. Thank you...
Boot into Setup (Bios) set the Bios to Failsafe Defaults. If you continue to have problems, replace the CMOS battery.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/hp-pavillion-dv7-6135dx-bios-issue-689539.html
Was updating the software on my HP Pavillion dv6000 limited use laptop and found that there was a BIOS update available for it. Since the current BIOS version on the laptop was F.22 and HP had BIOS version F.5A available since October 2014, I decided to download and update. The BIOS update utility ran to completion without errors, starting at block 16 traversing backwards to block 1. Once, complete it justdown the laptop. But when I powered up the laptop, all lights illumination, the screen stays dark, no disk activity and no more laptop. Just a big paper weight now. Any one have any Idea on how to revert the BIOS back, or just I just consider that I just lost a good working laptop?http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Boot-and-Lockup/Upgrade-of-BIOS-on-HP-Pavillion-dv6000-from-F-22-to-F-5A/td-p/5597869

Please help, I just recently got this hp dv400 laptop, and the previous owner put a bios password into it. I spent the morning trying every code on here and. none worked. After the 3 attempt the numbers 13137 appear. I am assuming that these numbers are how the code is obtained? Please help. I am tring to install Ubuntu, and cannot do so until I can boot from the cd.
