Seems that firth and maybe forth fix may address that problem of yours.
Read the instructions carefully, maybe even print them out. Don't do it on a stormy day where you might get a power bump etc. If you have a UPS, use it on that PC during the BIOS upgrade. I've done several BIOS upgrades with no issues. A power bump or power failure right in the middle is what usually gets people into trouble. Or not understanding exactly what they are doing. It's a lot better than it used to be. A lot of good quality motherboards have BIOS backup/dual BIOS, and BIOS recovery options built in.
I updated the BIOS. All went OK. For some reason I got a "cannt upadte due to no dll.32" (or something along those lines) installed. But it updated and re-flashed the BIOS anyway. It must have worked OK, or I would not be typing this! And the PC does indeed show the new BIOS version. But still no HP logo. But I found the solution from the HP forums. It reads as follows:
"Try enter BIOS then in Security disable Secure Boot and enable Legacy Boot.
Save changes and exit. Enter four digit confirmation at reboot to confirm the change.
HP has custom keys installed in Secure Boot for the GTX 770.
Legacy mode will allow the new graphics to run."
This has sorted it. All is now as before and works well (logo appears, etc). This may help other users who have issues like this in the future when upgrading components in OEM builds. Thanks everyone for the help.
"cannot update due to no dll.32" < You must have used Winflash? I usually don't do it that way, more to go wrong etc. All sorted in any case so happy computing.
Go into the BIOS and check the version number. That will tell you if it updated or not. Some high end motherboards have Dual BIOS and or flash protection. What it's called and how it works depends on the manufacturer. If the flash fails, and its corrupted, it falls back to a backup copy of the original unflashed BIOS. In the old days you'd just get a totally black screen with no BIOS Beep. And a door stop or something cool to hang on the wall.
