|Im so close to flashing this but im just so tierd of looking, maybe someone can help.|
I have a compaq hp n600c laptop and i have the dos files to update but im not sure how to flash, O and its more complicated than you think, before you think im totally retarded and leave me without help, this is my problem.
I downloaded the bios newest bios dos bootable disk for flashing and its an exe files that automatically asks for a floppy drive to put the files on to update that was. however this laptop never came with a floppy drive.
so now i downloaded a virtual floppy disk program and i got the files put on it. here are the files i have in total, including the files downloaded from hp.
sp27129.exe cpq flash (686df ROM) install through windows
sp221460> older bios update that extracts from cpqflash.exe
rompaq 686df rom ver 2003.12.31 softpaq creates rompaq diskette used to locally restore/upgrade evo models
sp21458 (older version of rompaq 686df)
after extracting vmd pops up asking to copy to A: so thats when i created virtual floppy drive and press c to continue and
it extracted this to my floppy drive
note: I used winimage to view the 686df.ima from rompaq 686df and its the same files
so that's about it i look all over the internet but there are just too many pages to go through when
I might have better resualts by useing a tech support forums.
also here are some links i couldnt bring myself to read because of all the reading i have done and ended up on
a dead end so if you find something i missed or didnt read yet let me know.
this would be my drivers page from hp>>
Any help would be amazing... thank you in advanced
