    Done that and the label under battery indicates 1444-110 for the Regv so renamed the files to 01444.bin and sig and copied them to those 3 folders. powered up laptop with usb stick in laptop flashing caps lock and no activity on tegh flash drive. Tried holding Win+B and pressing power button down while still holding those 2 keys. No difference still flashing caps lock

    I noticed that the flash drive does not even seem to be getting power on the USB port i.e. the activity/power light is not lit. A USB in line monitoring stick does show 5V on the port but only a .03Amp draw with the memory stick in the monitoring stick

    try different brand usb and all ports.
    drain power of board with button 30 seconds.. no power cord or battery.
    then plug in usb hold win B, plug in power and press power button 3 secs
    keep holding win B 20 secs.

    or we try different version bios.

    Tried 3 different USB flash drives and all usb ports, Did the drain one first and no difference. I Do we know if the G62-327CA is even capable of responding to the WIN B and power combination? Some laptops I read elsewhere that are simply not capable of emergency bios recovery. am wondering if in fact this old laptop is suffering from a well known video chip issue which requires reflowing of the solder under the graphics chip. Only reference I found to a continuous 3 sec blinking light referred to CPU issues.

    Upon closer inspection this laptop has an AMD Radeon IGP 1031 graphics chip rather than Nvidia so I may be barking up the wrong tree here regarding graphics chip being the cause of the 1 blink caps lock light.
