    I have a brand new motherboard in a HP dv7 laptop, with all working A-OK, except there is a brief message at start-up stating the serial number is blank. In BIOS, it is blank, along with the Product ID. I'm looking for a possible way to enter my original serial number/product ID into the new motherboard. I believe my BIOS brand is Insyde. Any help appreciated. Thanks.

    BIOS recovery

    Thanks for the info on HP DMI tools. I checked them out and it appears the EZH20 tool may do what I need. However, I am reluctant to mess around with the BIOS without the ability to recover. Do you know if it is possible to create a bootable BIOS recovery CD or USB before I attempt the modification?
