    thank you tghoang but i already tried with this file .
    WPH and ROM are different .i take an example :
    acer always provide 2 files for flash, 1 rom for windows flash and 1 WPH for dos flash with phlash16 .i tried to rename the .rom file to .wph and flashed IT DIDNT work but it worked with the provided.wph .
    if somebody else has an idea ....

    You are mistaken my friend. It *IS* just a file extension...but I won't argue this point anymore.

    You are probably getting an error with phlash16. What is the error and what version are you using?

    FWIW, here's the latest phlash16 v1.7.0.0. Dell also provides the identical version with the BIOS for the Vostro V13 laptop.
