Usually there are instructions that accompany a bin file. My advice would be to ONLY use BIOS updates that you get DIRECTLY from HP. You will need the full model number and version to get the correct file.

Installing the wrong file can brick your laptop.

Why do you feel the need to update your BIOS anyway?

Yeah, the bin file is the bios update. You need the flasher file to install it. Both should come with the bios update download from HP. But often those downloads assume the update is going to be done from within windows. It appears yours isn't booting to windows. The problem you're having may not be fixable with a bios update but I guess get the appropriate files and try it.

thanks for the reply. My laptop was not turning on. A friend of mine suggested me to download a bios bin.

Which actual model laptop do you have?

As already commented above - bios updates are best done - only when necessary.

Does the laptop turn on and if so any messages (even briefly) on the screen?

Yes, tell us exactly what happens when you switch it on and what you see on the screen. It could be a hardware fault.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi Alex, the VERY VERY last thing you should try is updating the bios.

If it goes wrong, you could end up with a Door Stop.

Provide make and full model number of the device concerned.
Also carefully and fully describe the fault that is occurring. .
Am sure people here will then be able to help.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

If you never ever see anything at all on the screen then you have a hardware fault that needs fixing.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
