Re: bios prob

Hi,

have you made a backup of the old bios before?
If not - (flash) not just you that have not, also it's recommended everywhere - you have to try to flash the bios, check this item:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00026926&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=321851

-> see ROMPaq!

Else you have to:
- find your mainboard manufacturer
- find the right bios
- find the flash program
- copy all to a floppy disk (or usb stick)
- boot from there
