    Hi,

    does anyone have the exact model of HP Compaq Mini 110 netbook that I need to fix?

    I specifically need a backed up bios for the 110c-1120SA model.

    I have a problem with my mrs's netbooks bios (CMOS Checksum error on bootup and contstant reboot cycle).

    I have tried all of the similar model numbered netbooks bios files that can be found on here or the web but I just keep getting the checksum error.

    Thanks in advance ;-)

    Hi, thanks for responding.

    the problem is I cannot boot into windows to run the winflash version of the bios update and as such need either a way to extract the .ROM from the winflash versiion OR a backup of the .ROM from an identical device (110c-1120SA).

    the reason I started a new thread was that the last thread was about the bios recovery procedure which is now resolved, I have successfully been completing this process with all versions of the bios that I can find but keep getting a checksum error in the post.

    can you help with extracting the .ROM from the winflash bios update file? is this even possible?

    cheers

    problem solved.

    my solution was this


    • find a bios backup that would boot without the wifi card plugged in.
    • run the windows7 "repair windows" option
    • run the cmd prompt
    • put the winflash version of the original bios for my machine downloaded from HP website on a SD card and insert it into the netbook
    • browse to the SD card in the CMD prompt and launch the bios update

    voila! a now working netbook

    Could you post the BIOS backup that let you boot w/o the wifi card plugged in? That would help others if they get into your situation.
