Hey Guys, I just spent about 5 hours trying to wade through these forums. I got here from some google searches and I think it's where I need to be. What I have is a laptop, HP dv6-6135dx. It has a Insyde Bios, on version F.21 (if version matters). The problem i'm having is that my laptop is refurbished. I didn't know this when I bought it, but it is. I just purchased a new Vector 256gb for it, but I can't run the HP Recovery on it. I have other windows I could put on it, not a problem, but I'd like to put the OEM back on it. The problem comes from it being refurbished, and it's tattooed apparently and won't let me install the recovery disks. The recovery is looking for: LW262UA#ABA, but my laptop is reading: LW262UAR#ABA I just need to get inside the bios and at that fricken R. Or take it away? Or do something!? Really, I don't know much about this particular... I do repairs on computers for a hobby, but you guys have got some serious knowledge. So please, if you can help, let me know. I imagine it's as simple as making a USB bootable drive, loading it, and adding or subtracting an R somewhere in there. Please let me know. Thanks! ps. not the only person having this problem! search for... 30824-dv6-6135dx-recovery-disks-not-working... in the forums.
