I have an HP G61-511WM. I wouldn\'t stay running to reload an operating system. I replaced the broken fan and reapplied thermal paste. It still wouldn\'t stay running for more than 3 minutes. I removed on component at a time to rule out any bad hardware. I ordered an upgraded processor which was listed in the manual and now the laptop won\'t boot. I get a 2 blinks on start up which means BIOS failure. Seeings how I can\'t get the computer to boot I can\'t flash the BIOS. Not sure were to go next.
