 Post subject: Phoenix BIOS Bricking (Hp DV6000 series)
New postPosted: Wed Jan 25, 2012 12:13 pm 

Hello there! Been a while.

So! Got a challenge for you guys ;D

HP dv6904ca, Phoenix BIOS version F38. I updated to this version after previously being at version F30.

Upon reset, the screen is simply black blankness. Now, I know it wasn't the gpu because, well, the thing had been working fine and it wouldn't have overheated in a matter of three seconds, especially when the last temp I read on it was 38 Celsius.

In any case, I've already educated myself on the wonders of WINCRISIS and such; the problem is finding it and configuring it. So far, I haven't been able to find the utility itself (all I've managed to find is winphlash).

So my question to you: can you find this utility, and preferably a version that works on USB? I know there's such a thing, as it was mentioned in a guide on another website; I've searched for a whole day now and all the links I'm seeing are purple now; and I'm on the point of exploding.

Thanks in advance!
~Shane

For this post the author Shane has received gratitude : Rich

Alright! Got it all to work fantastically, just had to copy the files over manually to the usb stick, because wincrisis is a poop.

After holding Win + B for a time the laptop loaded it into ram and flashed before restarting and working flawlessly.

See ya~!
