    Thanks for answering me. would you mind explaining to me the types of Bios? AMI, etc.? what is the process to flash the BIOS when you can't tourn it on? Memory Stick? (How that works?) The netbook is brand new.

    Necessary things:
    - Small size USB Flash drive (mine is 256MB)
    - miniDOS
    - Your BIOS image file (the most important thing)
    - HP USB Drive Format Tool

    Step-by-step:
    - Format USB flash drive with bootable miniDOS using HP tool
    - copy your BIOS image file into USB flash drive and rename it to AMIBOOT.ROM
    - Plug in USB flash drive to your Netbook
    - Turn the netbook on and wait: the screen remain black. But if LED indicator on USB start flashing several time, it seem good signal. Keep waiting for about 2 or 3 minutes. If the LED did not flash, this meathod cannot help.
    - At last, AMI logo and some messages appear on the screen and the system will restart itself, your BIOS has been recovered. Nothing happen after 5 minutes (can be abit longer), I have to say "Sorry! This cannot help".
