I have hp pavillion DV6-6c35dx black screen with caps lock blinking twice to indicate corrupted bios. How do I flash the bios on this laptop?

If that computer wont boot to a screen that you can recognize, it is a brick. When the bios is corrupted and it wont allow the machine to start you cannot access any screens that will allow you to recover. It takes special equipment to flash the BIOS when this happens and most places just replace the whole motherboard because this equipment is not used often by repair shops.

Hp pavillion dv4 1123 us will not power up after bios flash or update

Bios flash update is a very delicate process.
If something went wrong you lose your eeprom programmation. You can try loading it again but most of the times this is not successful so you should contact customer service and send your computer for repair process

I have a HP Pavilion Dv4-2049wm And the screen went black. When i turn it on the keys light up. But the Caps Lock And Number Key blink 2 times. From what i read its a bios error. What do i do to fix this...

I don't think a bios update will fix the problem. I think the LED fault code indicates a CPU error. The CPU rarely fails suddenly so it is unlikely to be a faulty CPU (although not impossible). It may be due to corrupt CMOS data. This is the settings in the bios, backed up by a small 3V battery inside the laptop. This data can be cleared and reset to default but you need to disconnect from the mains, remove the laptop battery and then locate the CMOS battery and disconnect it. Unfortunately I cannot tell you where this battery is in your laptop. You will need to remove the keyboard and have a look inside. It may be accessible from underneath after removing the main battery or under another cover. After you locate and disconnect the cmos battery, leave it for a few minutes and then re-connect the battery and put the laptop back together. Try switching it on again.

The hp dv4 has flashing caps lock and scroll lock

Compaq and Hp are having issues with several models, Go to the HP/Compaqs website, look up your model and see if it is one they are offering free one time repairs on. My friend's dv4 computer was doing same thing, they replaced the motherboard for free, and it took about 2 weeks to get it back.
