I have a Dv5-1157ca with F.0B as bios. I download F.21 and tried flashing the bios. I hit start and it started then i went to bed, when i woke up the screen was blank but the quickplay buttons were still lit up.
I called customer service and they told me to remove the CMOS battery for 5 minutes
I tried removing the CMOS battery for 1/2 hour with A/C and battery out but the lappy still won't start.
What do i do?

If the recovery process don't work, you may be able to find a seller of BIOS chips for your model on Ebay. Also, there are services out there like aqstech.com that can do the repair if you're not good at soldering.
