    Hi

    I'm hoping to breath some life into an old Compaq Presario CQ61-220sa laptop for a friend on a low budget.

    Unfortunately HP not longer support the model and they no longer have any downloads available so I was wondering if there is a way to dump the bios so I can do a 2.1slic mod to it.

    I've checked through the bios request threads and can't find one specific to this model so any help anyone can give me would be appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance.

    :)

    Wouldn't it be easier to use alternative activation methods?

    That is my backup plan, but if the option for a more permanent arrangement was available I'd like to give it a go.
