    Hi Guys,

    I'm having HP PAVILION G4-1110tx core i5 2nd Gen (dual VGA intel and radeon) Laptop which was running very slowly, i thought it was windows issues, then i re-installed the windows, but it was same, then i tried to upgrade the bios, during upgrading the bios my laptop was turned off automatically, my battery were already death i was using direct power.

    Now when i trying to turning it on, nothing there the power is coming, caps lock LED blinking continuously and no screen (screen is full black)


    is there any ways to restore the bios or another way to fix this problem???

    yes it should recover with these steps.

    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/35272-HP-Insyde-BIOS-recovery-steps

    look under battery for the proper filename of the file.
    should be one of these

    [Platform_Check]
    flag=2
    PlatformName1=1666
    PlatformName2=1667
    PlatformName3=1668
    PlatformName4=1669
    PlatformName5=166A
    PlatformName6=166B
    PlatformName7=166C
    PlatformName8=166D
    PlatformName9=166E
    PlatformName10=166F
    PlatformName11=1670
    PlatformName12=1671
    PlatformName13=1672
    PlatformName14=338A
    PlatformName15=338B
    PlatformName16=338C

    which file to use ?
    the logic is find the matching id.. and find the fine to use to rename to the id.bin.. but it must be decrypted by phoenix tool .DEC that is what u use to rename to .BIN and the RSA.SIG to the same .. the number must have a 0 in front of it .BIN and .SIG

    this table is F.14 bios version .. u can use F.66 to recover i believe
    [MULTI_FD]
    Flag=1
    FD#01=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,1666103C,01666F14.BIN
    FD#02=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,1667103C,01666F14.BIN
    FD#03=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,1668103C,01666F14.BIN
    FD#04=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,1669103C,01666F14.BIN
    FD#05=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,166A103C,01666F14.BIN
    FD#06=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,166B103C,01666F14.BIN
    FD#07=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,166C103C,0166CF14.BIN
    FD#08=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,166D103C,0166CF14.BIN
    FD#09=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,166E103C,0166CF14.BIN
    FD#10=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,166F103C,0166CF14.BIN
    FD#11=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,1670103C,0166CF14.BIN
    FD#12=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,1671103C,0166CF14.BIN
    FD#13=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,1672103C,0166CF14.BIN
    FD#14=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,338A103C,0338AF14.BIN
    FD#15=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,338B103C,0338AF14.BIN
    FD#16=PCI,0,0,0,2C,FFFFFFFF,338C103C,0338AF14.BIN

    depends on the product type under battery.

    It was the same version F66 which you gave me, it is the least version of bios from hp....
    before upgrade the bios I really don't have one i mean that, before upgrade the bios i checked the version of bios which was F14
    now i think that maybe i don't got right system broad id,under the battery
    i found that(rev: 166e-110) is this is the system broad id?

    if recovery methods dont work then u need to reprogram chip or buy a chip already programmed
    (i would also buy spi programmer to make a copy of new chip to old chip so u have a backup.. dont forget to make backup.bin of old chip)
