    It happened after I altered HDD partitions. Now it wont go into boot menu, BIOS etc and wont boot from USB,HDD or DVD. When I turn it on I get a screen displaying specs. F2 F10 or any other key is not working. I think it is a common problem for this model but I failed to find any solution.


    I downloaded 5fcn95ww.exe BIOS for this model but as I am not able to boot into windows it is of no use to me. I have managed to extract 5fcn95ww.cap file from it.



    Any ideas on how to flash it?



    When I put it into andys tool(I dont really know what the tool is for but I am using it for a name) it does not give me any name either. It is supposed to be a phoenix bios. The tool says EFI/INSYDE.

    I will provide the link to google drive containing all the files in a minute.

    I will give it a try. But will winPE boot from USB? As Windows installation or recovery discs do not boot.
