Gonna put this up front, sorry for breaking the rules on the post count for images and links, but I really don't know how to explain some of the issues I'm having and feel that the community would find it easier to look at them instead of having me explain something I don't know anything about. After I did a CLR_CMOS w/ the jumper cap from 2-3 to 1-2, the computer would no longer boot past post screen. I cannot access any of the menus and pressing F9 (Boot Menu), F10 (BIOS Config), ESC (Menu with all options to pick from) results in this screen (see below image) i. imgur. com/SWfoQPs.jpg If I choose not to press any key at all, the screen will do this and I can continue to toggle the numlock state up until it tries to load time and date, then the computer will not respond to any keyboard presses. Screen without any keys pressed at startup (see below). i. imgur. com/btP0qx8 .jpg WINKEY + B doesn't seem to do anything except prevent the post screen from loading, just gets stuck on HP's System Settings logo and won't continue until I release it. CTRL + HOME beeps 5-10 times with a yellow power button (sleep mode color) then returns to the normal bluish (power on color) without restarting or seeming to do anything. I haven't tried replacing the CMOS battery yet. Haven't had time to go to the store. I cannot seem to find the current bios on HP's site. However, HP has an update to An2_8.10. (sp60605.exe). The current version is v7.05. That exe is extractable and contains this structure: [/] [/folder with no name] [/folder with no name/An2_810.rom] [/folder with no name/hpprobar3.exe] -> is extractable, but has only the exe metadata .rsrc folder, .text file, and .reloc file. [/folder with no name/Installer.exe] -> can't open. 7-zip doesn't display an error message though. [/folder with no name/safuwin.exe] -> same as above. [/folder with no name/SP60605.rtf] same info that appears when you launch the installer. readme basically. When I use PhoenixModTool of any version, it shows the info window, but doesn't have info except for this. i .imgur .com/YJ9CsUT .png i .imgur .com/h8fM5UY .png As well as saying its an EFI/Insyde BIOS, I don't know how to make the MOBO find the new file and install it if I would need to, since I can't find the original v7.05 version of it for this MOBO on HP's website. If anyone could help me unbrick my board that would be amazing. I've posted on 3-4 other places and nothing seems to have worked.
