    Good afternoon,


    I need help!


    My Compaq CQ61, now show the message at the beginning "invalid serial number", and the result is that the windows7 says it is invalid, should I buy a copy of Windows 7. The windows came installed on the notebook ... and HP says the notbook is out of warranty.


    I searched the web and only find the page to download the latest BIOS. I've downloaded the program to edit the BIOS "DMIScope", but can not write the BIOS ....




    Then I found this forum, and I'm beginning to think that your only here there may be someone who can help solve this problem.

    Insyde BIOS F23


    Thanks for your help

    Hi!! :)

    Use this -> http://rufus.akeo.ie/

    After making dos-bootable pendrive, unrar the archive. You will get a folder named NbDmiFit-1.19. Put the contents of that folder in the root of the pendrive.

    Thanks for the feedback. Actually it is the collection of tools that are used by HP technicians; so they deserve the actual credit. :D

    Anyway, if the DMI is properly programmed then it shouldn't give any error. Try a reinstall after programming.
