    Flash failed with wrong flash 68XXX.BIN forced with 4 arrow keys. Because no Bios Administrator pass. Only user with password. Now HP Probook only starts with 3 caps and numlock (5 times) and nothing. I am try everything, HP_TOOLS on usb, W+B, Power with 4 arrow keys forced flash... notinhg... ubs not work, only HD blinks :evil2: Bricked...HP!
    Trying with ext CD, DVD, SD flash, USB Flash.... nothing.
    Today is going to HP service. Bios is corrupted. Waiting for solution.
    Any sugestion, comment, please. I will posted final service respond! Thanks!
    My flash is 68CDD.BIN , chip is 25L3205DM 8-SOP MX12G. If service want to change motherboard, I will eprom my BIOS with serial eprom machine. :mad: 25L320DM.jpg

    I will try this ... I will post results. Thak you.:worthy: Do u have some experiences for programing bios directly on board, is this safe?
    What is proper way to make SMC.BIN (Rename 68CDD.BIN to SMC.BIN) and put it on root folder BIOS?
