I upgraded my hp pavilion 9715nr notebook to windows 7 and need the bios and all the drivers for it


The BIOS, which stands for Basic Input-Output System, is the software that allows your operating system to work with your computer hardware. The BIOS software is stored on a separate chip that receives constant power from a small battery, called the CMOS battery. This battery allows the BIOS to process information, such as the system time, even when the computer is unplugged. HP releases updates for the BIOS on its Pavilion computers periodically, and it is important that you apply these updates to your computer to ensure a smoothly running system.

Restart the computer. Press the "F10" key when the HP logo appears on the screen. This is the hot key that allows you to access the BIOS. Locate the version of the BIOS installed on your system on the main BIOS screen. Press "F10" and select "Yes" to exit the BIOS. b> Upgrading Your BIOS b> Go to the HP Software and Drivers page in your Web browser. (See Below.) http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/static_software_select?swlinkmsg=100&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&docname=c01087277 Enter the model number of your Pavilion, which will be on the sticker containing the serial number, located on the bottom or rear of the computer, then press "Enter." Select the operating system that your notebook is currently running. Locate WinFlash for HP Notebook System BIOS in the BIOS section of the page. Verify that the version offered is later than the version currently installed on your Pavilion and download the file, using the "Download Only" option. Locate and double-click the file that was downloaded from the HP Software and Drivers page to begin the BIOS update. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation.

Hope this helps.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6-3120us Entertainment Notebook. A update came from HP for the BIOS and while installing the update, it will not finish. Its frozen at 100% can you assist?


your options are wait for it to complete. Or power cycle it and hops it froze on downloading, and not during installing.

Manually download the bios update yourself and then flash it manually if it does come back up.


If the computer fails to boot up then you will need to use a recovery bootdisc and then to apply the bios update again manually as opposed to doing it in windows.

It looks like you're getting failure with BIOS update. Unfortunately if you can't enter BIOS mode again, it means your mobo is unusable. If you can enter BIOS mode update the BIOS with previous version (before you update the new one). Usually BIOS update process needs backup your old BIOS.

How to update bios


To find the current BIOS version, follow the steps below:
  1. Restart the computer and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
  2. Write down the BIOS revision number from the Main page. You will use this number to see if HP has a later version available.
    1. Go to the HP Software download page
    2. If you are presented with a page to enter your model number, type in your model number. For example, Pavilion p6230f or TouchSmart 600-1050uk.
    3. Select the version of Windows the computer is using.
    4. Click the BIOS link.
      • If a BIOS update is not listed, HP does not have a BIOS update posted for your computer at this time.
      • If there are several BIOS updates available for different motherboard names, you need to find out what motherboard is installed in your computer. To do this, turn off the power to the computer, remove the side panel, and read the name printed on the motherboard. The name of the motherboard should match or be similar to the name of the download link.
      • If a BIOS update is listed, continue to the next step to download and install the BIOS update.

        Click the download link. The instructions for downloading and installing BIOS updates vary. For most computers with Windows XP, download the file, open it and follow the on-screen instructions. For many computers before Windows XP, save the downloaded file to the hard drive, insert a formatted disk, open the downloaded file to copy the BIOS files to the disk, and then restart the computer with the disk still in the drive. The instructions on the download page may be different so carefully read and follow the instructions on the download page and in the installation setup screens. If a 251 or CMOS Checksum error occurs after installing the BIOS update, perform the following steps:
        1. Restart the computer and enter the BIOS screen by pressing the F1 or F10 key at the first screen.
        2. Press the F5 key to load the default BIOS configuration.
        3. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
        4. Press the F10 key to save the settings and exit.
        5. Select YES by using the arrow keys, and then press Enter .
        When the BIOS update is complete, the new BIOS revision number is updated on the Main BIOS screen.

wrong BIOS
you are dead in the water, the laptop is dead. unless you can get another same motherboard and swap the BIOS.
other choice is to install your OS from the begining, if the laptop let you into the BIOS.

Bios update


Hello!!


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.
