I upgraded the RAM on the HP x360 Pavilion 15 Notebook that I am selling, and after I reassembled everything back together, the computer does not power on unless I hold down the Start and B keys while pressing the Power button, which then it goes into the HP BIOS Recovery process. I want it to stop doing this and boot to Windows 11 normally like it did before the RAM upgrade. Installed from 4GB to 16GB RAM from Crucial.

Hope someone can help!
Thanks and God bless.

@FreeBooter, it isn't my computer anymore as it is for sale. But yes. I verified that with Crucial, and it can indeed handle 16GB of ram. It takes 2 8GB modules.

Might want to check in the BIOS to make sure the RAM frequency and/or timings, etc., haven't returned to say... unstable default settings?

In other words... take the new RAM out and put the old RAM back in. Enter the BIOS and check the RAM settings.
Then put the new RAM back in and check the settings again.

This assumes old and new RAM with the same frequency and timings.


In other, other words... sometimes a RAM change can cause instability because of less than optimum RAM settings.

The fact that the notebook is forcing you into the BIOS at every cold boot and/or restart... sort of points in that direction.

Does BIOS detect 16 GB RAM?

I have 16 GB RAM installed on my computer with no problem.

What happens if you go back to your original 4GB of RAM?

Did you acquire the RAM from Crucial?

They guarantee compatibility.

Wherever you got it, checking the BIOS settings may help, as already suggested.

It's probably just as well that it's not an animated GIF of the text crawl.:)


5 or so years ago... it would have been. :)

Crucial will tell you anything for a sale. The BIOS will tell you the truth.

Most of all, double-check the RAM timings and that the BIOS is properly configured.

HP is know to be extremely picky with RAM upgrades. Also, when doing the upgrade, did you disconnect the battery before replacing parts. It is very possible you corrupted something on your system.

the computer does not power on unless I hold down the Start and B keys while pressing the Power button, which then it goes into the HP BIOS Recovery process. I want it to stop doing this and boot to Windows 11 normally
That procedure is for updating the BIOS. If that is the only startup that works then I'd begin assuming that the BIOS itself is corrupted somehow.
You can usually reset the BIOS by by either changing a jumper configuration on the motherboard, or by removing the CMOS battery for 30 seconds or more.

First thing I'd try is taking it out and putting it back in again. ie make sure it's seated well - sometimes they need quite a firm push. But yes - with the battery removed or disconnected and I also wear an antistatic wrist band.

I have taken 2 pictures with my cell phone of what it does. Is there a way to fix the corrupted BIOS without having to take it apart again?

To me it sounds like a memory issue rather than a BIOS issue. I saw a repair video where the memory can mess up starting.

I ran the Crucial Scanner, and it said the computer was fully compatible to run 16GB of Memory. Same goes for HP on what it could do. I just wish there was another way around this rather than having to take it apart it again. Because I hate taking it apart. I have to get my Stepfather to help me every time because he knows how to work on things. I am more on the software part.

It may be able to use 16GB but it could be the brand or type of RAM that you're using that's causing the issue. Like it was said HP is picky when it comes to RAM and when you consider that you only changed the RAM that's likely the issue.

Either way the issue is due to the RAM. I can't see anything else causing it.
