I don't have one installed, only an empty slot. According to service manual it should be HP part number 531993-001, it's quite common in HP laptops. Maybe you can get PCI ID from web or this image:

If not, thanks for the effort.

I have uploaded testfile for you, i must warn you that many probook laptops doesn't accept the modded bios and automatically revert back to original bios, so if yours does this i cannot do anymore to solve.

Flashing is safe, even if it bricks the laptop, recover from bad bios is child's play using a usb stick.

Look for your test file following my signature directions, second HERE. Wink

I tried your modded BIOS, but unfortunately it doesn't work.
I get 'The System BIOS update failed' message immediately after pressing Enter to apply update (after restart), it doesn't even start writing the new BIOS.

EDIT: Nevermind, I saw in another post I have to remove hptools partition, I'll try this later.

This happens a lot with Proobook and Elitebook laptops. Or reverts to original or it simply bricks but always are recoverable by usb stick and original bios.
