Samsung RV520 laptop bios issues

Hi.

I've got a Samsung RV520 laptop which was running absolutely fine using dual boot with ubuntu and windows 10. I've decided to change my setup and keep only windows 10. I've formatted my drive (ssd) and wanted to install a fresh copy of windows 10 on it. After windows installer finished copying files it has rebooted and then somehow got stuck in a bootloop. It will now not allow me to enter bios by pressing F2  but instead goes straight into bootloop. if you will switch my laptop completely off and then turn it on, it will boot, but only from usb stick but then it will get stuck in a bootloop again after restart. I've tried running my laptop with different hdd's and ssd's. I've also tried turning it on with no drive present.  I've even taken my laptop apart to take cmos battery out and possibly reset bios to default settings but nothing has made any difference.

I'm suspecting that my bios got damaged somehow. Is there any way i could overwrite/ upgrade my bios?

My exact laptop's model: NP-RV520-A07UK

Hi.

Thank you for your answer but none of these F2 keys would work. I've managed to upgrade my bios. This has solved my issue and everything is working absolutely fine now.

Try holding F2, F8 or F12 down when you power on the laptop. Then you should be able to change the boot up drive. Ps I'm no expert but this did work for my PC.

Failing that, you'll need an expert help or book a repair. Good luck 👍

Do you have the drivers for Windows 10 for the in built camera? Or the name so I can download. Everything I have tried so far, no joy. Thanks
