    Hello everyone,

    I encounter difficulty to find a functional bios after a flash downgrade bios (because is a EBAY used motherboard it was impossible to run the GTX 1050 an error 43)
    so I flash via Windows a bios former which I have to modify the flag.

    the procedure is well done, I have the progression run in back. the PC redémre and it is the black screen ... and the backlight of the keyboard remains lit.

    by doing the combination fn + Esc I get flashing USB keys but I try tt the possible name of bios (* .fd) to rename the file extracted from the latest version of the bios.
    Remove & reset battery (power on one night...) = no result

    If anyone can help me, I will be very happy.

    Identical result.

    Protocol: Fat 32 usb key with just the .fd file on it.
    I press fn + esc then power. the led of the key flashes 1 second then the PC goes off and restart (except procedure recovery)
    black screen and keyboard light

    Sorry for my english (french)

    Your English is fine...no worries.

    Please check these things:
    - Try all the USB ports on your laptop. Sometimes only one of the USB headers is usable for recovery procedure.
    - Not 100% sure on this, but ensure the USB stick is 4GB or possibly smaller. I usually restore laptops with a 2GB, 1GB or even 512MB SanDisk USB stick formatted as FAT32.

    thank you for your help @tqhoang

    I just tried with a sandisk key (16go I have no less ...
    I even tried to make 1 go partition on the key) on all usb ports, same result ...
    when flashing bios under windows with insyde there must be a copy backup to the hard drive?
