    Hello All,

    Presumably this mod should work on my HP Laptop

    dv6815nr (dv6700 series -AMD Quanta 7150Mnforce560)_sp42853_SLIC21_MOd2

    I should use SWinFlash.exe along with a mod BIOS file renamed to BIOS.WPH file. There're 2 file in root directory:

    30CFF32A_MOD.WPH
    30CFF32B_MOD.WPH

    Which one should I use?

    Original HP BIOS file after extraction also has to wph files.:confused:

    Thanks

    If you can use the SWinFlash.exe tool to create a backup of your current BIOS and post it here (RapidShare or similar) I can check for you.

    Select "Backup BIOS only" in SWinFlash, specify the path/file name in the first box, clear the second to be safe, then click the "Backup BIOS" button at the bottom.

    Use Everest program, go to Motherboard > ACPI and search on the right-bottom window "OEM Table ID" field, the value on there are the numbers of bios file you have to use.

    Or with CPU-Z in Mainboard Tab, find Motherboard > Model and you got the same numbers.


    Greets! :)

    First, I'd like to thank for responding. I think using EVEREST would be easier

    OEM Table ID: APIC

    OEM ID:pTLTD
    CreatorID: PLT

    Hopefully it helps.

    Thanks.

    It's me again. I guess EVEREST didn't give the correct information.

    Using CPU-Z:

    Model: 30D1 85.26

    That's weird, on my laptop the bios file has the numbers that cpu-z reports. I think is not your case, so maybe idc could help you checking you bios.
