I have hp dv4-1465dx, i was installing win 7 crack, there was some bios setting in that crack,after i restarted that, it doesnt go forward only HP logo comes in front, doesnt enter to bios by pressing F10, nor go to system recovery when i press f11,
the lapotp isnt hanged, when i press num lock or caps lock, the light turns on,,
i think there is bios problem, plz someone tell me some bios reset utility which i can install withoout having windows, i mean any bios reset utility regardless of operating system, in DOS etc,
I'll spare you the rant on dealing with "cracks" but will say that damaged or corrupted firmware in BIOS's is a major problem that is not always correctable. It is possible you have bricked your system. Especially if the BIOS is not in a socket but hardwired to the mainboard and can't be easily replaced.
The problem is that if the BIOS is the issue you aren't going to get past POST to read anything from any disk [hard, USB, CD-Rom] so the system becomes totally unbootable from any source because the system is unaware of any of these sources as the BIOS firmware hasn't provided the system the data to access them. None of the I/O's will function so you won't be able to flash the BIOS ROM with an replacement for the damaged code.
Your best bet is if your BIOS is socket monted, in which case you can purchase a replacement and swap it out for the damaged one which will resolve your problem as the code on the new one will be intact.
You can do it even if its not socketed, but un-soldering and re-soldering a BOIS chip onto a mainboard without damaging the tracings is no easy trick even for an accomplished repair tech.
Sorry I couldn't do better for you. I hope it works out.
