If this is a NEW system, then the keyboard issue is covered under warranty, contactg HP tech support and TS with them, and if they deterimine the KB is bad, they will send a replacement.

During TS you may be asked to reseat the data cable for the keyboard (assisting with TS is part of the warranty) and either reseating the cable will resolve or they will send a replacement KB

HOW DO FORCE START MY HP ENVY 23 INTO BIOS


Go to HP's website and download the procedure from their website. You can try this also. Turn the PC on. As soon as you see anything on the screen start pressing the F1 key. That should take you into the BIOS. If F1 doesn't work, try the F12 key or the Delete key the same way.

How to restore corrupted BIOS of presario cq60 laptop


Whenever you upgrade the BIOS on your notebook, a copy of the previous version is stored in the HP TOOLS partition of your hard disk drive. Many HP notebook computers have an emergency BIOS recovery feature that allows you to recover and install the last known good version of the BIOS from the hard drive, as long as the hard drive remains functional. This emergency recovery feature is separate from the BIOS and is designed to work in the event of a catastrophic BIOS failure.To recover an earlier version of the BIOS on your notebook:
  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. Plug the notebook into power using the power adapter.
  3. Press and hold the Windows key and the B key down at the same time while the computer is off.
  4. Still pressing those keys, press and hold down the Power button on the notebook for 3 seconds and then release the Power button and the keys. The screen remains blank for about 40 seconds before anything appears on the display. You might also hear beeping sounds. Eventually, an HP BIOS Update screen displays.note.pngNOTE:If the computer fails to display an HP BIOS Update screen, press and hold the Power button for 5 seconds to turn off the computer. Wait 5 seconds and try again. If, after repeated attempts, you cannot open the HP BIOS Update screen, your computer does not support this function or it has a hardware problem that is preventing the tool from opening.Figure 1: HP BIOS Update screenc03376208.jpg
  5. When the BIOS has been recovered, a Continue Startup button displays and timer counts down. You can click Continue Startup to restart the computer or you can allow the timer to reach zero and the computer will restart automatically.Figure 2: HP BIOS Update screenc03376209.jpg
  6. After restoring the BIOS, if the computer repeatedly displays a message that the BIOS has been reset, then perform the steps in HP BIOS Application Selected is Corrupt or Missing .
  7. After restarting, Windows may display a message stating that the computer was improperly shut down or that a boot problem was detected. Read and respond to the screens to continue.

Sir i have problem in hp g61 i;m getting that message upon installing new bios. my touch pad is going crazy, so i was advised by hp to update the bios from F 0.6 to F06 f. however when i turn the computer...


never flash BIOS or risk this., only flash if
1: THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH PC.
2: HP TOLD YOU the bios fixes this exact problem.
3; getting the correct bios for this pC can be difficult.
4: flashing with a dead battery can fail,
5: If the flash fails, try again. repeat the flash,
6: if the BIOS is now dead, take out coin cell for 15min.
put it back see if BIOS key works now. and reflash it using only the correct new BIOS FLASH binary files only from HP and matching
your exact unstated, service TAG data. (i bet you did not even look or get it right here, as many do , and then brick the PC)


the touch page worked when new.
so how can BIOS suddenly go bad?. (it cant)
no windows OS stated
if you are still running the correct OS on this G61.

to make the pad work takes:
1: pad not damaged or cables inside not loose.
2: correct OS, that HP supports, (windows 10 may not be)
3: only HP version and disks loaded for OS and all drivers, not microsofts.
4: remove and load the correct mouse pad from HP.
5: bingo it works and no flash needed, nor desired ever or 99.9% of all cases. leave BIOS alone and win. is my motto.

what G61, since you never said, my guess you dont know
and if true, then how'd you get the correct bios.
you didnt. (my guess and is right most times when bios mangles)
here ill click 100 for your, my wild guess.
it runs vista and w7 only, are you >? hp disks not MS?
year 2009 made.(as old as....)
see results in last photo. (guessing your unstated service tag)

btw, next time ask for mouse pad help
and leave BIOS ALONE.

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.

Hp pavilion dv 6000 keyboard not responding.Some of the keys will not respond at all. I checked the drivers and tried to update, but says most current installed. It has been doing this for about 6 months....


You need to check in the BIOS if the keys when typed does make beeping noise. Set BIOS defaults.
If the keys are still not working than boot the sys to the recovery manager and press ctrl+d to open the CMD box and test the key board there.
Boot the sys 3 times to BIOS and set BIOS defaults,
If it doesnt work try the latest update and drivers for the sys. If it doesnt work that means the keyboard needs to be repaired

Keyboard not functioning


key board dead , correct. ? even the caps lock key will not toggle its led.
my guess is you bought a clone keyboard from china, on fleabay
and its dead. as many are, some are wired wrong.
the ribbon cable on mine fits to a special connector that likes to break easy, is your broken this locking jack there?
is it plugged in upside down?
why did you buy a keyboard. was the other dead.
when did the keyboard fail. list week last year, or never
i bought it for cheap with dead kbd....
there is no HP drivers, HP retired this old PC, after 10 years.
so what makes you sure your non HP drivers are any good.?
NO OS stated, not even a clue. XP?
what I'd do , us boot to a Knoppix v7 live boot(dvd/usbstic)(linux)
if the keyboard fails NOW, then its bad KBD. or the jack cable or connector there, (or inserted wrong) or damage. there.
buffer chip is blown up with ESD events. (electrostatic discharges)

is the keyboard dead in BIOS
on ours we hit ESC or F10 and BIOS screens pop
power on hammer ESC or F10 or what the screen tells you to hit.
the go in to BIOS screens, now test the keyboard.
using say the arrow keys to navigate the BIOS menus
if the ESC and F10 key are dead that is a bad keyboard.
what must work here is the electronics.
  1. correct keyboard, some clones will never work.
  2. cable not damaged
  3. cable not upside down
  4. connector there not damage the lock not broken,(easy)
  5. the MOBO buffer chip not ESD damaged.
  6. BINGO BIOS now works by key commands
