Yes, that's usually what you have to do when updating the BIOS. If you want I have time later this afternoon to do this. Do you have the Windows CDs?

No idea as does not load further, not familiar with Ubuntu so cannot do much. Probably need BIOS start up on USB (bootable) and then update from HP site etc etc
I could definitely format your laptops and install a brand new Windows, but I'm not sure about the BIOS, as it's quite a tricky thing to do. You think it's because of the BIOS that it's not recognizing the CD drive anymore or what other problems is the BIOS causing?
