    HELP: Need BIOS Backup from Medion WIM2180 or 2140/50/70/90 Series

    Hi,

    i have a huge problem.My Medion Notebook MD 96630 does not start the BIOS, the BIOS is broken. I use the vistalizator to switch 2 Language with Vista on the Notebook and restart it,but nothing except black screen appeared :(
    I want to make a Phoenix Crisis Recovery Disk to try a rescue, but i need the *.wph or *.bak file and i cant extract it from the BIOS file ME2V10J.EXE that i have downloaded from the Medion Website.
    Therefore I ask to all whether someone have one of the Medion Wim series notebooks and can make a Bios Backup from his notebook for me. The Backup can make it with the program Phoenix Win Phlash for XP/Vista/win7 or other.
    I hope anyone can help me. Please .Sorry for my English.

    Could not decompress the 7z correct, link to the Bios update Download from the OEM would be more useful.

    Sorry, I got the EXE (ME2V10J.EXE), but it seem to be just a flasher with the ROM.

    I can't see any way to Extract it, so I was of no help at all.

    Apparently this Bios has been modded and works, here is the link
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/5864?page=676

    And, the way to get the wph file for recovery is supposed to work like this
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/posts/194813?

    However I did not manage to extract the file myself, so I did not risk flashing yet. If you manage to extract the .wph file please let us know how you did it :)

    Also it appears ME2V10i is safer than ME2V10j !

    Hi,i had read the thread already before, which you`ve linked, but i cant unpack it unfortunately also :(
    I have try to unpack it on another notebook and it does not function. It comes always : "Sorry! The BIOS can not support WFlash!". I think it must be the original Notebook to unpack it. I use Win XP or must be in win7/win Vista???:confused:

    Have you the same Notebook of the Wim Series and does function that Notebook? Can you start the Notebook and do you come into the BIOS?

    Here are the files you are asking about.
    first one is the contents of the recovery disk. I extracted out those
    http://www.sendspace.com/file/x17tvb
    second one are the wph and rom from the flasher. you need to use a hex editor or similar to copy it out. a few exe flashers with roms, you can catch the wph in the temp folder while the prompt window is still open, some not...

    Thanks a lot :D
    I used the disk, but it does not function :(
    Its read the disk and then comes nothing.I wait more than 10 minutes and start manually again, but there is nothing like bios on the screen,only black screen. I have tried it several times however without success.I had the last bios version 1.0J on the notebook, perhaps is it because of it? Can you extract the wph from the last bios 1.0J for me?Maybe its function with this version.The link is http://www.treiberupdate.de/treiber-download/download-179158-treiber-Medion-WIM2140_WIM2170_WIM2180_WIM2190_WIM2200Modell.html

    I can probably unpack it. I'm migrating over to 64bit, when I get a 32bit image created and booted I'll take a look.
    If you are trying to recover, try other key combos before connecting power.
    I ran across these looking for different key combos than the normal fn+b or fn+esc combo. fn + r, all 4 arrow keys, ctrl + home
