    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.

    try using this HP DMI TOOLKIT, not sure your model is supported.

    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?
