A friends Pavilion 8880 PC had bios v2.13 but os (XP home) indictated errors
so found an HP web site article recommending upgrading bios.


Installed bios v3.05 and appeared to install ok.

After reboot all I got was the 'hp invent' screen; no xp loading and no
floppy activity light.

Couldn't get into BIOS via F1 on bootup either.


Tried taking out battery, reset memory, now beeps 3 times on boot, no screen
display and subsequently shuts itself down.
