How to reprogram (Flash) Laptop BIOS

Your laptop’s BIOS (Basic Input Output System) is the first software your laptop loads. It sets the stage for your operating system; so to speak, by finding all your laptop’s various hardware components and letting the operating system know it can use them. If your system has a Corrupted Bios and won’t turn on you will need to flash the motherboard bios with a .bin file

Flash BIOS with a USB flash Drive (for laptop turn on but with black screen)

  • Step 1: Identify your laptop module and current BIOS version.
  • Step 2: Check your laptop/motherboard manufacturer’s Website for BIOS file and downloaded.
  • Step 3: Unzip BIOS file to a folder of your choice. Format a USB flash drive to use the FAT file system (Use the smallest one you could find).
  • Step 4: Copy the xxxxx.FD to root of the newly formatted USB flash drive and RENAME the file xxxx.FD to xxxx.BIN. (Every BIOS has special xxxx.bin name check the our website or the internet for the right name for your BIOS .bin file)
  • Step 5: Remove the AC adapter and the battery and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Release the power button.
  • Step 6: Insert the USB Drive into one of the USB ports on your laptop.

  • Step 11: If the file was found then it took some seconds for the laptop to load it.When loaded the laptop power led start blinking. About few seconds after the blinking had stopped the laptop shutdown. BIOS worked normally thereafter.

    you can download the .EXE bios file from the hp website
    extract the .EXE file you will the bios.wph file. you have to convert the .WPH to .BIN file with an Hex Editor. you have to know the size of the Firmware chip, knowing the start and the end bit number for your bios file. erase the other bits save your file as bin file

    READ AND RESPECT ALL STEPS

    HP G62-a80sv wont turn blank screen but running fan (I initially suspected gpu problem cause my keyboard does not have the caps lock LED) on HP G62-a80sv. Make UEFI usb stick with 52264 tool from HPSupport/model nr./bios on Windows 7 computer. Download also from the same place (HPSupport/model nr./bios) 49367 (F0B) bios update. Unpack the 49367 with winrar or 7zip and you will see some files. Rename 01439.fd to 01439.bin.
    I use Phoenixtool266. Open the Phoenixtool version what you have. On the “Original bios” choose the “01439.bin” what you just modified. On “Manufacturer” choose “HP”, on “Slic file” choose “HP.BIN” and now the “Go” button is not locked anymore and press it. You don’t need to modify or to press anything else. When you see on the “Status” field “Success”, you’re done with this and you can close the tool.
    Now, go to the folder where you extracted the file and you will see among other files 01439.bin.DEC and 01439_SLIC.bin.DEC. Copy this two files on your usb stick, on folder Hewlett-Packard/BIOS/Current and rename 01439.bin.DEC to 01439.bin and 01439_SLIC.bin.DEC to 01439_SLIC.bin.
    SAFELY REMOVE the usb stick NOT UNPLUG.
    Plug the usb stick on the dead machine (with the HDD disconnected), plug in the power adapter, press the power button and pray.
    You don’t need to press any other button.
    The computer will start and stop every 3-4 sec for about 10-15 min (with the black screen) and …..on my case goes ALIVE.
    After the computer starts normally you can upgrade your bios to F35 (50335), or how i do directly to F48 (55430) via windows.
