Drivers and Downloads

If you don't have a floppy drive, you can probably prepare a bootable DOS USB flash drive using the utility from HP:

HP Drive Key Boot Utility - HP Business Support Center

I'm not optimistic that reflashing the BIOS will help you, though. My guess is that you suffered some sort of hardware failure, unconnected with your recent downloads.

Good luck.

I'm not sure that this is the right service, but it may be:

$100 Dell Laptop Repair, Dell Repair, Laptop Repair Notebook Services | Dell Repair Parts-People.com

$100 for diagnosis and labor. (Parts extra.) My boss used them on a Dell notebook he'd acquired through eBay, which had worked for a long time but suddenly would not boot. Turned out to be a failed DIMM. (The machine wouldn't display any startup stuff at all.)

I'm not up-to-date in laptop recommendations, should you need to buy a new one. I've been satisfied with my cheap ($350) Compaq CQ-105NR. It's about 30 months old. It's not a desktop replacement, but it has better graphics than some (nVidia 8200m). It upgraded to Win7 X86 with only a little trouble (mainly due to its nVidia chipset). I mainly use my desktop, which currently uses an I7-920 OC'd to 3.8 GHz.

Hmmm, what RAM speed should I go for?
What's up?! I've been debating on getting a RAM upgrade from 4 gig DDR3 to 8 gigs, especially since DDR3 RAM is currently still fairly low price-wise. The RAM I have now is rated for 1600MHz, and after many weeks of maxing out a system overclock, I still haven't gotten the RAM to operate at...
