Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook ?

Simply, The bios update failed

\015 I did everything to the letter I restarted the system (HP Pavilion DV9521tx) made sure all antivirus and tea timers programs were disabled through msconfig in Admin mode. I had the bios update in the downloads folder and ran it...it seemed to go well, then it failed to a blue screen and before I could read it it restarted itself and the screen's been black ever since. So I called hp and they said it had just ran out of warranty and they directed me to a hp repair center on the other side of town and they said we'd have to pay for it! I go online with another computer and start looking around for a solution and discover there are a number of class actions going against HP for knowingly selling faulty electronics in over half a dozen countries...I was hoping there was some way I can jack and flash the drive using another computer with a network interface or something? I spent my juvenile years explaining my mischievious childhood antics (running away from home and stuff) to a drunk ol judge, lol and have avoided courtrooms since...I'd really love not to have to go to court :) is there a way to fix it without it costing me a fortnights wages?\015

Answers :

I am afraid there are no two ways to it than for you to pay. When i experienced this in the United Kingdon (uk) I had to pay to have it fixed

It will definately not cost you much.
