have a HP Pavillion DV6-2010sa laptop thats running windows 7.

No picture display when i turn on the laptop, just caps lock and num lock LEDs flash twice.

I looked this up and it means corrupt BIOS.....

Now in order to fix this i need to flash my BIOS using a USB thumb drive ( pressing and holding Windows Key + B on start-up)

The file provided by HP only extracts into a WinFLash.exe, so i used winRAR to extract the 3635F13.FD file from WinFlash.exe.

I understand i need rename the .FD file my question is what do i have to name the 3635F13.FD file in order to get the thumb drive to flash the BIOS.

I have been trying to sort this out for ages to no avail.

Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

By the way, according to the link below, it should be named "3635.BIN".

I bet at this point, you would be glad to see *any* activity from the computer... well, a BIOS recovery, if it works, shouldn't make things worse, I guess...
