Re: BIOS corrupted HP Pavilion dv6

@Not_techie123, thanks for your quick response and time.


I appreciate efforts for trying out the steps.


You cannot run the BIOS on a different laptop or PC, The BIOS is specifically made for your laptop.


If you are unable to execute the BIOS on your laptop it;s certain that BIOS has got corrupted on your PC.


To restore BIOS you have to contact HP and send the laptop in for service, so they will do a chip level formatting of BIOS or replace the BIOS chip.


Please contact HP support for service options.


Link to contact HP.



Have a great day ahead! Smiley Happy

Re: BIOS corrupted HP Pavilion dv6

Can you check the following link -


I am on Step 2: Creating the BIOS recovery media


I am creating BIOS on USB so that I can use this to install on broken laptop.  Number 7 of the above is -

The HP System BIOS Update Utility opens. Click Next


For me, this doesn't happen.  Instead of HP System BIOS Update, this opens InsydeFlash.  I am NOT and DON'T want to install BIOS on a working laptop. I am using a working laptop to install BIOS on a USB disk.
