    Firstly thank you guys so much for your speedy reply!!! I really do appreciate it!!

    The links you guys sent me was for drivers, softwareand bios updates. Which will definelty help me!

    But the thing is I need to create a utility / recovery partition on my hard drive, to, for example upgrade bios or run e-diagtools...and well, hp told me that the only way of doing so was if the laptop has a utiliy / recovory partition and the only way of creating that partition is woth the recovery discs(which i dont have).

    Im at a point where i dont know what to do...Im not really a computer guru so i basically try to do things as far as i can do it. I live in a very small town and taking the laptop in to a professional will just be too much of a hassle and money! Its crazy how much they charge in smaller towns!

    Okey, thanks once agian and if you have any advice or idea of how to solve this problem Im all ears.
    thaks again.

Hi george.

I'm afraid you will have to get in touch with HP about this problem. The reason being is that yes you can de-solder the BIOS chip but this is very hard to do with it being on a laptop motherboard. You will need a very steady hand and also a heat gun to melt all the solder points on the chip to remove it, then you have to get the new chip in place properly which again is not easy, even for a tech like me!! To be honest with you I personally wouldn't bother trying to do this because it's that hard to do. If you can prove ownership of the laptop then HP will give you the master reset code to wipe the password from the BIOS.
I'm sorry but this is the best advice I can give you.

Kind regards.

Most of the HP laptops have inbuilt recovery partition. We need to create recovery discs using this partition. We can even restore the notebook to factory settings using recovery manager.
Even the sony laptops have inbuilt recovery partitions.
