Insyde BIOS Recovery

  1. ) Obtain the correct BIOS file for your system. The file extension will usually be one of the following: “.fd” “.rom” “.bin” “.wph”
    2.) Please see paragraph 3 to determine what you should rename the BIOS file to.
    3.) Copy the renamed BIOS file to an EMPTY USB flashdrive. If the flashdrive is not empty or is incorrectly formatted, the recovery process may fail.

    4.) Disconnect the AC power adapter and, in the case of a laptop, remove the battery as well.

    5.) Insert the USB flashdrive into one of the USB ports on the computer. In most cases, the particular USB port that you use will not matter. That being said, some computers are finicky and will only accept a specific USB port for recovery.

    6.) With all power sources disconnected from the computer, hold down the ‘Windows’ key and the ‘B’ key. Do not release these keys until instructed to do so.

    7.) Connect the AC power adapter to the computer.

    8.) Press the ‘Power’ button on the computer.

    9.) When the LED’s illuminate, you may release the two keys from step #6. You may notice some of the LED’s illuminating differently from how they do in normal computer operation.

    10.) After about 10 seconds, the computer should start reading the flashdrive. While searching for the file system, the computer may (should) beep for one second. The number of beeps can vary based on the capacity of the flashdrive as well as the number of files on it. If the BIOS file is not found, the computer will reboot and try again.

    11.) If the file is found, the computer will load it. The particular computer used in this tutorial took 12 seconds to load the BIOS file, but times can vary based on the size of the BIOS image. No beeps will be heard during this process.

    12.) After the computer is finished loading the BIOS file, it will start flashing the BIOS. During this process, the computer will beep every 2 seconds. The computer used in this tutorial took about 32 seconds. About 5 seconds after the flashing process has finished, the computer will shutdown. If the recovery process was successful, then the BIOS should work normally the next time you boot up the computer.

    *NOTE: Not all devices will produce beeping sounds during the recovery process. The USB flashdrive LED should still blink on and off while the computer is loading the BIOS image. If the loading process is successful, the computer should shutdown within the next minute. For larger BIOS images, this may take longer.

    Hi I’ve been trying to recover my Acer Aspire 5742 due to a corrupt bios, and been following the pages for phoenix instructions (5742g uses it apparently) but stopped when I realized that mine uses Insyde. I have confirmed this by entering crisis mode to see if it would work. The newest bios for my model is 1.30, which has a KBCA230A.rom file, and a pew71x64.fd file. I seen somewhere that these merge together but am not to sure if that’s the case. I was thinking of using an earlier version but I can’t recall which version was installed before becoming corrupted. I have a USB thumbdrive but wouldn’t running a Phoenix crisis recovery tool not work on an Insyde? I’m also unsure of which file to rename. Any help would be appreciated!

    Hallo,
    I have a Lenovo IdeaPad N581, Bios InsydeH20 Rev. 3.7 – Bios Type 5ECN42WW (V4.01), 14.03.2013
    My machine runs with windows 7 64bit.
    I can’t access to the ADVANCED menu of the bios, so my memory is running 800Mhz instead of 1333Mhz, and I cant do other things.
    MY QUESTION:
    I read everywhere “OBTAIN FIRST the correct BIOS file for your system” – but how do I do that? I downloaded the Andy Phönix/Insyde tool and run it, but it ask me for a file, so how do I obtain my original bios?
    After that, I can I unlock the ADVANCED Menu and flash back the bios?
    ThX
    Best
    C.A.

    PS: I have been reeding up on this for hours, if Im too stupid, just give me the link to the answer…

  • philetus:

    emergency flash of a modded bios today.BDMaster said hold FN and Esc which I did and it worked exceeddingly well.

  • Hello all,
    I just bricked my engineering Touchsmart M6 15.6″ with i7-4550u HD5000. The bios was B.0F, I downloaded the bios F.18 from TouchSmart M6-k125dx which is i5-4200u. The flash didn’t back up the old bios for some reasons. There is no TouchSmart M6 with i7 – 4550u anywhere. There is no working bios for me to download and restore.
    The board finished flashing the bios 2048 sectors and verified… then it doesn’t reboot just power on and black screen with the wifi button red. I think the new bios doesn’t know what i7 4550u HD5000 is because it’s for i5 4200 HD4400. It was stupid of me, if anyone can help, I would compensate for your work. I ordered a motherboard from Ebay for the i5-4200u to fit into this motherboard, but the i7 – 4550u is really nice.

    Thanks,

    Louis
