compaq presario cq60 210-us bios update failed

I tried to update the BIOS of my Compaq Presario CQ60-210US notebook using the driver downloaded from the HP Support website. The update failed, the computer locked up and would not take any input from the keyboard or the mousepad. I did a hard reset and now the notebook won't boot at all.


I tried following the steps to restore a corrupted BIOS (windows key + B + power for 3 seconds) several times but the notebook still will not boot.


There are instructions for using an HP_TOOLS USB drive to restore the BIOS, but I can't figure out how to create that USB drive. There are no links and no instructions to create it. When I search it takes me right back to the same page.
