I acquired an HP pavilion notebook last year in september. It worked just fine for nearly a year and a half, until roughly around the beginning of december. Then, its adaptator started making beeping sounds from time to time. The problem was corrected though, but it's not my point.
Around the middle of december, it wouldn't start without the adaptator plugged in. I should have been cautious then, but it worked, so I wasn't much disturbed by it. However, around the 28th of december, no matter what, it stopped working, its verr num and caps lock leds blinking twice, in a sequence.
After some digging in the tech support files, I found out that it meant the BIOS was corrupted. I tried removing the CMOS for half an hour, replacing it and rebooting it afterwards, but it did not work. Any ideas on solutions?

If it is indeed a corrupt BIOS, this is the best as I could find:

Ok, now that I know how to recover my computer's BIOS, I need to know two things, that are vital.
First thing is the BIOS number of the DV6 1210sf. I can't find it, even though I know the motherboard was manufactured by Quanta computers.
Second thing is, where do I find said BIOS once I have the proper BIOS number?
