Hi Guys I am hoping someone can help….. I have an HP G7-1002sa Laptop.
All I have is a blank screen on trying to boot up every time, nothing else except the fan starts. I have piggy backed the hard drive onto my other laptop and the hard drive seems to appear and then disappear without being able to read it so I would assume the hdd is knackered, also it clicks continually.
Okay, so I have tried getting into bios which I managed once or twice and I did manage to change the boot up sequence to usb. But now impossible to get to bios. One time the caps lock and num lock were flashing twice, I guess corrupted bios, but now they don't flash, don't know why.
The RTC battery is good, so has power to bios
I formatted a usb stick with Rufus and downloaded bios sp57396.exe from hp. (Their instructions for repairing the bios are absolute rubbish and impossible)
Okay, so I have extracted 0165CF52.bin, 0165EF52.bin and 03564F52 from the exe file, put on USB key and tried each one at a time to try and flash my bios holding the Win and B keys whilst plugging in power…… NOTHING…:-( on any of them.
Am I doing something wrong? I have tried with the HDD in and out but I assumed that as the bios is on the motherboard it would make no difference anyway.
CAN ANYONE HELP?? PLEASE!!
Thanks in advance
