Look on the HP Support Downloads webpage for your model for a newer BIOS. If there is one then run it from Windows taking all precautions given. If not proceed with reset and other steps.

Are you ready to proceed with Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

Be sure to wipe the HD first with Diskpart Clean Command.

Getting ready to do that now. I've been thinking of upgrading to 7 Pro. Can I do a clean install of that over my current version the same way as a clean install?

I hope this takes care of the issue. LOL.

Thank you for your help and patience. I know I'm not the most technically savvy. Thanks.

Yes you can, but I'd use the clean command from the link Greg provided first. You'll probably have to do it from the install disk though. On the first screen where you select your language, don't select it, hold down the Shift key and press F10, you'll get a command prompt.

Do you have a Win7 Pro Product Key to activate the install with?

If it's Upgrade version it will require doing one of the workarounds in Option 3 of Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version after install to activate Upgrade version on a wiped HD.

I'm going to purchase a key tonight and download. I just didn't know if it would be worth it or not. I like the idea of running apps in XP mode, though.

Best way to proceed is the re-install, as Greg mentioned.

Let us know how it's going.

I'm reading the clean install tutorial and it tells me to have the RAID drivers on a usb key drive. Can I extract these from my C: drive? I can't seem to find them online.

You only need that if you are running raid. If you're not, just have the motherboard drivers from the manufacturer's web site ready to install after Windows is installed.

iaStor.sys BSOD
I've been getting repeated BSODs related to iaStor recently. So far I have downloaded Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyWare, and TDSSKiller and none of them have turned up any malware, so a rootkit can presumably be ruled out. I did the scans both in and out of safe mode. I've also reinstalled the driver...
