    Hey,

    I went full stupid earlier today and accidentally selected ''Auto'' in the Advanced \ Video config. \ Primary Display in the Insyde Bios, Auto is meant to disable the internal GPU in order to use a PCIe GPU, Problem is I don't have a PCIe GPU for this laptop nor the possibility to install one and what I meant to select was iGFX.

    Eversince I did that the laptop just boots on a black screen, here is what I tried:

    - Remove CMOS Battery, Laptop Battery & HDD
    - Did the WindowsKey+V trick to fully reset CMOS
    - Did a couple hard resets (pressing for 30+ seconds the power button while battery is removed)

    Here's the BIOS recovery attemps I've done:

    - Placed 01658.bin (current bios file) alone in a 1GB FAT Usb key, booted with the Windows key + B trick, didn't work, the USB Key didn't lit at all, nothing was read.

    - Downloaded the UEFI Bios Update package, installed it on Usb. Loaded the current bios on andy's phoenix tool to get the .DEC.bin & .SIG files, renamed them to 01658.bin & 01658.sig and placed them in the Current\New\Past folders in HP_TOOLS USB, did the WindowsKey + B trick (remove batt, disconnect AC, insert USB, hold Windows+B, wait 4 secs, connect AC, keep holding Windows+B, power up, wait. But the USB key never got read.

    It seems like the Laptop won't even boot the UEFI menu to attempt flashing the bios, the usb activity light hasn't lit up once during all these attempts, I repeated the same methods on 2 different usb keys, same outcome.

    Also I had bricked this bios before a year ago and had managed to successfully recover it with the last method mentionned, though now the laptop just feels like a total brick not responding to USB.

    I will gladly donate to whoever helps me find a solution for this.

    Here's the specs..

    Laptop : DV6-6197CA
    Current Bios Version: F.1B Insyde
    Current Bios : sp55068_donovan6000_microcode_update_20180807
