Further question..... Hi tat4u,..thankyou for your time and help!!...BUT,..on the webpage i finally ended up at( from your link,thankyou) gives 2 possibilities (under the BIOS heading),which i think only one of is correct to use!?......The 2 choices are;....... 1. ROMPaq for HP Notebook System BIOS-DOS Bootable Diskette. 2. Winflash Utility for HP Notebook system BIOS-Windows-Based. ............i have an idea of the one i think but am not certain,and it has to be the right one or i could damage the notebook bios altogether!!............Do you think you know which one?...or shall i contact HP to find out?( i have emailed them before though and had no reply yet!!) ..........I will wait for your reply before commencing further if that's ok??.....many thanks sainuerummy.

    Hi again Tat4u,....thanks for all your help,much appreciated!!....I've now got the 'boot' disk on a floppy(i downloaded the 'ROMPaq' version)..but the notebook in question hasn't got a floppy drive,so i connected a USB Floppy drive to use but it is no good,as obviously to me now,the drivers for it aren't on the notebook!!...Can i download the 'ROMPaq' to a CD??....and if so,will the notebook read it without being on as far as 'windows'??......if i cannot go any further with my problem this way i might have to find out how to connect an 'external' monitor to the notebook and try this way!!......really appreciate if you could still help me,...cheers!!

    Hi again Tat4u,......thanks again for replying!!...just a bit confused now though as i've read a couple of websites solutions on making USB mem sticks bootable!!..after you've made them bootable you still have to get into the bios to change some settings before they can be used,and as i cannot get that far then this option is a no starter(i think)!?......So i will have to try the cd method.......will get hold of a cd first and then install Nero and then give it a go!!( not sure though how the notebook will read the cd,again because the notebook only powers up and doesn't go as far as BIOS or windows!?).......anyway i can only try this and if no luck then i'll have to think about 'plan B' :-) ......cheers!

Sure I answered this no matter.
cant be sure but I think the winflash is the same as hpq flash for mine .
however , with the rompaq you create a startup disk and it reflashes bios/firmware from start before windows or driver load or anything if know what I mean.
In short you create the disk(bootdisk) restart with the created disk in drive(cd)pc boots from disk reflashes bios and restarts.make sure to remove disk before restart.

    you can can put the drivers on a usb or cd ...with usb you need to make the usb bootable ...if you want to do this I have a program that formats ur mem stick and install boot files ready for whatever files it is that you use to boot ....

    but yes can use cd much easier...use nero to create boot disk and add files(rompaq)

Hi, I bought a new external harddrive over the internet and found your website very confusing to register it, although I had the right website, in the end I phoned the office, I think in Melbourne, and a very nice lady gave me a great deal of help, and everything is settled now, so thankyou to your lady in the office in Australia for her kind assistance,
I could not find where to register my product on your webpage, and obvoiusly ended up going to the wrong section,
All's well that ends well
thankyou, anne roddick
