    on HP Tools partition u might be able to find the old bios. if that was the case it would autorecover.. did u delete partitions ?

    there is no bios dloads at the page for it. ( or wrong page linked by hp)

    68MAD is the model of bios to be recovered.

    might have to buy if nobody posts a backup of the bios.

    Thanks for the quick reply, unfortunately i replaced the hdd and gave away the original hdd with the hp tools partition, is there anyway i can rebuild the partition using another computer?

    i just tried this method but nothing happens? i think the bios filename is needed i left the default 64MAD.bin anyway i can find the proper filename for the bios to do the recovery?
