Help!! I have a HP Vectra with PhoenixBios 4.0 Release 6.0.Z. When I boot up my system it asks for the serial number, I enter it but it go back to the same screen. When I reboot it says my password is corrupt. I clear the password and then it goes back to wanting the serial number. Will flashing the bios fix this problem? And where do I get the file to flash the bios with? And then how do I flash the bios?
P.S. This thread has been moved from Windows based to Business PCs - Evo, Deskpro, Vectra, Kayak, Brio, e-PC.

expected lifetime on this is about 3-5 years, so if you've got one of the older vectras then it's probably time anyways.

the full model can usually be found on a small grey sticker on the bottom of the right side of the pc, or on the botton of the laptop.
for instance, this is for a vectra 6/??? series 8.
