    I have been reading your website all morning and I'm a bit confused. Can someone please assist me? I have an HP dv5 1253cl laptop. when i turn it on i get HP battery alert message, i hit enter to continue and then get serial number not found. hitting escape is my only option. i then hit f10 for the bios and noticed the serial number is missing, the UUID is a bunch of zeros, the product confiuration id is a bunch of zeros and the factory installed os says non-vista. The bios is InsydeH20, bios version is F.11, system board id is 3602.

    I have done a search for this problem and have read that I need to tattoo the motherboard. and that HP is the only one who can do it because they have an HP DMI tool. I'm trying to get this laptop back-up and running for a co-worker but HP says it is out of warranty and will have to pay anywhere from 80 - 400 dollars. Needless to say she does not want to pay that. Is there a way to fix it? I have read your phoenix thread but most of the links are missing and I'm a bit lost. Can someone help me? Thanks
