i just reply to myself to explain a little bit more i'm asking that.

My previous bios was in revision F45, i it was not able to support a wireless card that was previously supported by another HP similar laptop.

So i updated my bios... but...

It seems I did a wrong bios update with the following file:

sp48024.exe (F.5A REV: A)

Now i'm only able to load another bios by using Win+B keys and an external drive formatted with CRISDISK.

I already know how to create the disk and so on.

So i tried by using the "wph" file inside the following updates without any success:

- SP39862

- SP38510

The computer read the external drive during few minutes, but does not reboot after flashing the bios.

I still have black screen on power on

 

If someone can help me please.

Hi:

 

F.5A was the correct BIOS update for the dv6500 and newer notebooks with Intel processors.

 

And sp39862 should have worked as well.

Hi Paul, Thanks for your answer.

So i was not fully crazy about whish bios i can run into this laptop.

 

But at the end nothing seems working 😞

I already tried to remove the bios battery to clear the cmos cache, but it does not change.

 

Did you have an idea of what could be the root cause ?

You're very welcome.

 

Those two files were definitely for your PC, and F.5A was the latest one.

 

Unfortunately, I don't know what caused the issue, or how to fix it.

 

I don't know if you ran the BIOS update in W10.

 

That is generally not a good idea, but I have read posts where others have run the updates in W10 on the dv6xxx notebooks with Intel processors, and the update works.

 

On notebooks with AMD processors, there is a 100% failure rate unless you run the update in Windows Vista.
