HEWLETT-PACKARD dv4-2045dx PC Notebook bios flash from USB Thumbdrive

Yes! it can be done, but I strongly recommend you download from the company site, flash drives have different download speeds and if any errors occur the bios will end up being corrupted and cause an instant shutdown in the laptop computer without any possibility of a restart.

We cannot save the bios and can't restart

If you can't save the BIOS settings, then either your BIOS is corrupted or the battery supplying power to your BIOS is dead. The battery looks like a large watch battery on your motherboard. Try replacing that and see if it works then. If not you can either take it to a computer shop to have the BIOS flashed or replace the motherboard.

I have hp dv4-1465dx, how to reset bios without having OS

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.

Compaq BIOS update F.37 bricks Presario?

BIOS is not corrupted. yo download the wrong BIOS. either for the worng machine (I do think so-twice?). or you download the earlier version.
nothing you can do.
go to ebay or criglist see if any body is selling the same motherboard that works.
get it and replace the BIOS chip, you don't nee to replace the whole motherboard. just the BIOS chip.
