    I extract the BIOS .exe which reveals the following files:

    Ding.wav
    FlsHook.exe
    FlsHookDll.dll
    FWUpdLcl.exe
    InsydeFlash.exe
    iscflash.dll
    iscflash.sys
    iscflashx64.sys
    xerces-c_2_7.dll

    I then opened the original .exe with PhoenixTool.exe and the first window that popped up showed:

    Followed by:

    http: //i356.photobucket.com/albums/oo1/Birtybasset/2.jpg

    It created a DUMP folder and inside it 797 .ROM files and a folder called BIOS which contained 256 .BIOS files.

    At this point I'm a little bit stuck!! I understand that I ultimately need either BIN or FD file to place on the root of a USB drive and then boot whilst holding down FN + ESC.

    Massive thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with this.

    Since I got the Laptop working again after the bios flash I still was not able to resolve an underlying instability issue with the laptop. It would randomly freeze / reboot or sometimes it would not POST and occasionally it would green screen or there would be artefacts on the screen.
