Possible to fix corrupted bios on a HP DV7?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am trying to fix a laptop that has had its BIOS corrupted. I have tried the "hold windows button + b and power button thing", and it did not fix it. Sometimes the computer will boot, other times it just turns on to a black screen. Someone else told me to try taking out the battery and I have not even tried that just yet because I don't feel like taking apart the piece of crap again. Are there any other ways that could solve this?

If the BIOS was corrupted you wouldn't be able to boot it at all.

Erratic booting leads me to believe some other sort of failure.

The HP diagnostic lights are showing that it is a BIOs corruption failure

Can you flash it once you finally get it to boot?
