Your BIOS is more than likely locked by an admin password or the options are locked upon startup. The best way to go around that is once you see the HP screen popup after restart, keep hitting F12 and the boot menu will pop up gving you access to the boot menu and then to the BIOS. If you have a password setup on the BIOS you will need it for any BIOS changes you make to take effect.

I have hp pavillion DV6-6c35dx black screen with caps lock blinking twice to indicate corrupted bios. How do I flash the bios on this laptop?


If that computer wont boot to a screen that you can recognize, it is a brick. When the bios is corrupted and it wont allow the machine to start you cannot access any screens that will allow you to recover. It takes special equipment to flash the BIOS when this happens and most places just replace the whole motherboard because this equipment is not used often by repair shops.

Hi !

I believe that your operating system is corrupted and need reformat your computer. It will not boot to Bios because it is corrupted.

Here is the link on how to reinstall your operating system http://www.fixya.com/support/r7410371-reinstall_windows_xp_or_installing_clean.

Good Luck and thank you for using FixYa !

Elder parents have a 1 1/2 yr old HP Pavillion Series 4600. They are getting a black screen that reads "Disc Boot Failure Code HP-BIOHD2. Can you help me?


That means that the BIOS of the motherboard can't detect the hard disk = it has died. Replace the hard disk and reinstall.

WHAT KEY DO YOU HIT ON BOOT UO TO REACH BIOS


normally on any PC it's F2 or DEL, some others do use random F-keys. try pressing TAB on boot up to show the post messages, then it should tell you on-screen what key it uses.

Hope this helps :)

HP Pavillion dv2500 laptop will not boot up.


Pressing the f8 key doesn't work either? This should boot the laptop to safe mode, if it doesn't then check the memory cards before you do anything else, try to get somebody with the same type of memory card to lend it to you. If that doesn't work, then your HDD is corrupted, and to re-install Windows.

Pavillion laptop is not booting.


Try to boot the notebook with F8 Key. (Safe Mode)

Also try to go into the BIOS setting and change there --> Power and Boot Priority.

For BIOS try: ESC, DEL or F2 keys.
