It seems works great. Unlock AHCI Option and many!!!

sorry I have Error before take a Screenshot
I change Graphics Mode(This PC has Intel HD3000 Graphics(as iGPU) And ATI Radeon 6750M(as dGPU))
'Hybrid'(Use Both By Default) to 'dGPU'
then my PC turns blackscreen but Power Is ON
I think Graphics Cant show Screen Correctly

I trying BIOS recovery
1.Unpacking HP's officilal SP53704 (rev:F.16)
2.It Have 01646.fd and 01647.fd I take 01646.fd
3.rename 01646.fd to 0164.bin
4.copy to formatted USB stick
5. Disconnect the AC adapter from the notebook.
6. Remove the battery from the notebook.
7.Insert USB thumb drive into one of the USB ports on the notebook.
8. Hold down ‘Windows’ Key and the ‘B’ key.
9. Connect the AC adapter.
10. Press the ‘Power’ button on the notebook.

But No response..
my pc's LED(CAPS Lock)flash twice By fixed interval
No shutdown Occurs and No Beeps

My Question is
I Use Which Files 01646.fd and 01647.fd I flash for recovery?

Thanks!!

Reread sticky posts Smile

Try removing CMOS battery for a couple of minutes with all power sources disconnected, AC charger and battery pack.
