    Hello,
    I have tried many procedures to fix the problem, but nothing works....

    what happened:
    I updatet latest bios under windows 7
    computer restartet but only blank screen... fan starting up again and again
    holding fn+b / windows+b..... cd/dvd drive tries to boot but nothing happened....

    notebook:
    HP Pavillion dv6500
    s/n CNF7393K3X
    p/n GT397EA#ABD

    Service dv6551eg

    what I have tried:
    - crisis recovery disk (with 2 diffrent USB Floppy Drives - nothing happened)
    - usb stick
    - boot cd with minidos.sys and phlash16.exe
    - only bios.wph
    - i tried do find the right file name with hex editor but I could only find "volumeinÿfo.bin.ROM"

    I think I have a bad BIOS

    how can I fix it? any ideas? which filename?

    and is it possible to boot with CD when I have a bad BIOS?

    thx!

    Did BananaJoe resolved?
    I have been in troubles too with a newer HP laptop (even if I'm working on a model almost identical at his laptop) and I resolved putting the bios on a flash key and turning on the laptop pressing the four directional buttons to start laptop in recovery mode (if bootblock has not been damaged, the CAPS LOCK led should flash). Sometimes it works pressing the WIN button and the B button while turning on the laptop, and sometimes the bios file need to be put into some specific folder.

    I used one where you can choose - create minidos crisis disk / create fulldos crisis disk / format a: drive diskette ......
