I've flashed my Giada N20 (tomshardware.com/reviews/slim-n20-mini-top-zbox,2789-2.html) with a Zotac Zbox ION2-D525 based bios, thinking that it would be compatible and make my Giada better SATA control but I was wrong of course. In fact, I didn't know about this site and its great explanations about BIOS.
So, as a result, my Giada is bricked and shows these three sequences and than freeze :
I've tried of course boot-block method of recovery with a usb flash and with a cd drive but never keyboards keys seemed to make my mobo boot react in any way, CTRL + HOME or other combinations just seemed to do nothing, just like the keyboard could send any signal at all.
Then, I opened my Giada and tried to identify the BIOS chip but without success. Here is my mobo if someone could recognize its BIOS chip so that it could be reprogrammed :
Also, if it could bring some further informations of what right recovery procedure to apply, here I've put my bios back-up before flashing and the bad bios which provoked the brick :
If someone can guide me, I ll be very glad
Thanks by advance. Cheers

HP pavilion dc6-1225SV BIOS Corrupted
Hello guys i have problem with recovering my Bios i cant get the sig file when i run the phoenixtool extract me 2 files named: BIOS0.BIOS and BIOS5.BIOS anyone can please gine me the correct files for this laptop. thank you
its not encrypted so no need for phoenixtool to decrypt or .sig
simply find out which of these is your board id
then name the file 3059F18.fd to your board id .. example 3060.fd and so.. also try .bin .. and might have to put in folder Hewlett-Packard\Bios\Current
Hi, I have a HP Pavillion G4 1037TU notebook. With the HP support assistant it tried to update my BIOS. I didn't notice it and thought it was a virus, then i took out the battery. Then it didn't boot up, only a black screen. Caps lock LED blinks 3 times saying there is a memory problem, but i checked both the memory cards with another notebook and they are working fine. I tried many methods but nothing happen.
Please help me.
ok what is the id under your battery should be one of these in list with ending -100
thats the name of the file.
holdon it wont work by just copying file to usb. u have to make USB EFI filesystem with
after u make this USB put the Decrypted file (from phoenix mod tool) renamed to whatever it says under laptop but needs a 0 in front like 01666.bin also the .sig file same name
now take your HDD, Battery and Power cord out.
plug in USB and hold WIN and B keys (WIN key is the little logo of windows next to Alt key) while u plugin power cord. still holding the keys pres the power (dont hold the power key only Win B for another 20 seconds or so)
now it should be recovering.. however if it doesnt recover.. it might have a chipset solder issue and might need an expert to reflow it.. hope he dont need to reball it.
on these newer models the boards are so thin.. when u try it it will warp and pushes solder balls that just melted against chip.. now its a splatter mess and u need reballing

Hello everyone, i need your help. I try to recover bios on Acer 5560G but with no results. I tried many file names (also many variations of BIOS.fd name), phoenix tool don't show any name after opening bios file, only showing info about pubkey and mareker (2.1). To recovery i'm using Kingston DataTravel 1GB pendrive (formatted in FAT). When i use combination of fn+esc+power button, usb stick seems to bee read ( there are a few blinks of light on the beginning).
Bios file name is: JE50109.bin (Insyde bios) and it can be downloaded from acer website (i can't post links).
I will be very grateful for your help.
Isn't it Phoenix Secure Core Tiano Bios??
I found this information: "Aspire 5560G have Phoenix SecureCore Tiano BIOS. It's UEFI" - so it is possible to recovery?
