    Hi everyone,
    I have a compaq presario cq61 -310sa laptop

    Problem is when powered up, the fan kicks in, the dvd drive reads the Windows 7 disc, the screen is totally Blank NOTHING!

    The keyboard gives of a 'blink code' and blinks twice, which means from the Compaq website 'bios corruption failure'

    I have tried to flash the Bios via a USB stick pressing Win key &'b' and it does seem to go in, but the laptop just gives off a selection of beeps for 2 minutes then nothing.

    I have tested the hard drive and RAM in another laptop, both working fine.

    Now looking on the compaq website it does offer a BIOS update in which it fixes a bug of the screen going blank!!!

    Question is , IS there any software I can use on a USB stick to get the BIOS working once more?

    Compaq bios is sp48895.exe
    Once Extracted with winrar I see InsydeFlashx64.exe.


    Any help would be most welcome, really want to get it working!!!:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Read this: (stupidly long URL here)

    It says the BIOS recovery feature (the one with pressing Win + B) restores the BIOS from the HPTOOLS partition on your HD, so no USB stick or other thingamajig needed.

    Hi Keith did you find an answer to your problem as I have the same problem don't think there is any recovery bios on the hard drive so need a programme to get it to do it from a USB.
