CQ61 restore Bios from USB

November 30Hits:0
Advertisement
I have a CQ61-429us that stopped working. When I power on I get all the lights, the HDD and CD drives spin, and sound like they are fine. I always have a black screen, so I tried hooking up to an external monitor, with no video signal even after function-F4. The lights will flash twice contiunally, from my reading I think that means no BIOS. I tried restoring the BIOS from  the HDD to no avail. Formatted an USB to FAT32 with volume "HP_TOOLS" and downloaded the BIOS unpacked to the usb Pressed the Windows + B button upon startup but no update. Am I missing something? 
Thanks

Usually it is the cap lock and number lock keys that give the blink codes.Is this the keys that are blinking? I ask because you said you get 'all' lights after powering on.
Have you tried a hard reset? Have you tried removing 1 stick of memory at a time to see if it will boot?
