| Help please..... |
Thanks a ton for the reply. I can't get into Windows at all, not with: Last Known Good Config, or Safe Mode.
Windows starts to boot, I can see "Windows" with the little balls floating around it for about 2 seconds then a quick blue screen flash (maybe 1/2 a second), then a forced re-boot.
I originally got the BIOS from HP's site. I did the steps you mentioned above and that's what started the probs to begin with. I told the tech 'support' guy that they should take the file down or they'll get more calls like mine. He laughed! This is totally a scam! I use THEIR file, didn't skip a step in THEIR instructions, and after the re-boot THEIR software told me I had to do, I get a crashed machine and "I" have to pay for it! I've flashed 100's of BIOS' over the years of being in IT, and I totally understand the risks, but this seems 100% their fault. It's a simple download to desktop-double click file-read warning about not shutting comp down during process-click 'yes' to confirm you want to-flash takes a short time-click 'yes' to re-boot. Hello blue screen (and Peggy from India).
I'm just looking for the Rom files I can put on a bootable USB or CD to roll back the BIOS. The file that's on HP's site is a .exe file so that one doesn't help.
