Hello everyone, I have a busted dv6830ed, the BIOS was misflashed by some sort of HP updater app, I don't know who did it, but I do know that all the hardware is in good condition. It even has the bigger battery! So now I want to fix it up, but without a BIOS that's going to be a tough one ;-) Now, since this is a Phoenix bios, the first thing I wanted to do is run the flaky Phoenix Rescue method. This didn't work. 1. I have the crisis recovery disk loaded in a USB floppy drive and I'm using a known good floppy 2. Booting the laptop with no battery and only the charger plugged in, holding the key combo 3. Floppy drive powers on, access light stays on for a bit (~25 seconds) 4. Access LED goes off, and nothing happens. I leave the thing on for an hour, still nothing happens 5. Turn it off, doesn't work, unplug it, turn it on, and still no go It's not a busted GPU, and it's not a different hardware issue, it's the damn BIOS that's corrupted. To fix this, one of the ways I can think of, is to unsolder the BIOS EEPROM, and manually flash an image. But... I don't have the image! I know the BIOS file (WPH) is not suitable, and a BIOS backup isn't going to work either. This leaves me with a real dump from the chip itself, which can only be done by someone with the same motherboard, and the tools to do it. The question remains: is there anyone out there with a motherboard that matches the one from the HP dv6830ed, and who has the skills and is willing to make a BIOS dump for me?
