Answers :

Thank you for sending to me the whole info, cause I didn't have it.

Your issue occurs because of a problem with the Plug and Play BIOS used by some computers.

At this point to resolve this issue, I suggest to look at HP website for an updated BIOS for your computer.

But You must to know that the BIOS can be write-protected. If that is the case (it is not usually necessary), before the BIOS can be updated, its write-protection has to be disabled by changing a jumper setting on the motherboard itself, or by changing a setting in the BIOS itself. If this needs to be done , the motherboard's user manual will provide the required information in the section devoted to the BIOS.

Get also the info of your motherboard computer (usually from the website manufacturer)
downloading the manual to check the settings.
I will try to find that data for you to help you out with this issue.

Thank you for using FIXYA!
