My Pc was accidentally disconnected from power while it was doing a bios update which caused the problem I stated in the thread title.
I've done the following:

  • resetting bios by ejecting battery for 5 mins
  • pressing cmos reset button
  • reseating internal components(cpu, ram, hdd, disk drive)
  • cleaned the gold contacts and slot of ram
  • repasted the cpu
  • discharging possible residual power
  • swapped memory
  • swapped power supply from my other working desktop
But to no avail, none of them fixed the issue.

I also tried to reflash the official bios by creating a usb flash drive bios recovery, I followed all the instructions stated on the HP support site but I can't seem to access the bios. I inserted the bios recovery flash drive while the pc was unplugged and pressed windows key + B combination before turning on the pc to initialize the flashing but yeah the pc would just turn on for a sec and fans spin and then turns off and turn on again in a loop. Is there any other way to fix this that doesn't require an external bios programmer ?

Hope someone sees this, and thanks in advance.

nope. that the only way.
there is no bios because the lost power during the update
yeah I thought so too just hoping for a miracle here :geek:, but do you happen to have any idea what particular bios programmer should I use to reflash bios? the bios chip is MXIC MX 25L12873F
