    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: If the computer fails to display an HP BIOS Update screen, press and hold thePower 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.
      Recovering the BIOS using an external storage deviceIf the HP_TOOLS volume on your HDD has been deleted, a USB key with an HP_TOOLS volume can be used as an alternative. The key can be created manually or by using the HP UEFI BIOS Update SoftPAQ or the new HP UEFI Support Environment SoftPAQ and selecting the Create a USB key option. The USB key does not have to be bootable. However, this assumes the boot block is not corrupted in which case a repair is required.
      To recover the BIOS on your notebook using the USB key:

      1. Plug the notebook into an AC adapter.
      2. Insert the USB key with HP_Tools installed into an available USB port.
      3. Press the Power button while holding the Windows key and the B key.
      4. The emergency recovery feature replaces the BIOS with the version on the USB key. The computer reboots automatically when the process is completed successfully.

      You are now able to enter into the BIOS screens or Windows operating system after recovering the BIOS.

    You should run the actual BIOS Update UEFI then the BIOs Update. See if that works.

    Also I can start the system!!!But the problem is that the system shutdown every half-hour!!!And I think the ME FW update failed led it to that!!!

    Hi envy17, I have the same problem as you and the same and the Intel Chipset, after a failed bios update which left my laptop unsable, I had to desolder the bios and reprogram it , the laptop is working now but everytime I turn on the pc I get the same error as you, and now the cpu fan doesn't spin at all.
    I wonder have you solved your problem , if yes how have managed to do it?
