Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Laptop MOTHERBOARD 374711-001 Pentium 4 3.0GHz
On updating the bios the power was off b4 compliting the update, computer went off. After i tried to boot nothing hapened.
And nothing will happen. Do not PERFORM BIOS UPDATE unless strictly necessary. Do not perform BIOS UPDATE without CHARGER plugged in and be sure you have enough power for 10 minutes. NOW... If you are lucky, in service they will be able to REWRITE your BIOS. Check HP website for service in your area. If not, your motherboard will have to be replaced. Good luck. Keep us informed of the results.
If computer SHUT DOWN while reading BIOS FILES you might have a little chance to repair it. Unplug battery. Charger must not be connected. Press POWER for 30-40 seconds. Plug back battery. Press power. And pray before this.
IF this will not repair it... the two options described before will...

SOURCE: bios upgrade failure
so what did hp advise exactly.you could try removing rtc battery and see if it (bios)resets but I dont know yet exactly what youve done.you may need bios flash files installed on a floppy and reflash bios(depending what youve done this is the only left solution)

first make sure you have the correct file, then you need to make sure you know how to do that. A botched "flash" will ruin your entire system. also take out the battery and only use the power cord.

I am not sure after installing which update the display has gone. I mean Windows update or HP software update or BIOS update.
Let me take the senario of the BIOS update and assist you in this regard.
If the display has gone after installing the BIOS update, then the issue cases are 1. Installed wrong BIOS update 2. Notebooks might have restarted or hanged while installing the BIOS update.
In both the cases BIOS will get currupt and there will be no display on the notebook.
Solution for the issue is: If you notebook is under warranty, HP will arrange for mail-in repair, plss contact HP. If the notebook is out of warranty, then you need to contact HP authorized service center.
