    Hello i have with my Samsung R525 Black Screen after bios Flash. Can anybody help me to find out the BootBlock Jumper please? In the Service manuel it says nera Keyboard but that is not a note on the Motherboard from crisis pin. I hope somebody had a similar Notebook which anybody found the boot block Jumper. Similar Notebooks are for exaple: R520 R523 R525 R528 R538 R540 R560 R578 R580 R590
    Please post a photo from boot block Jumper when anybody found it.

    And please can anybody repair the download links on first post?

    Thanks and best regards

    Hello,

    i did just flashed on my M660SE the BIOS 1.00.09 (Description: Support new BIOS EEPROM). I had 1.00.02 before.
    BIOS is from here:
    M660SE/M661SE/M665SE Series

    Notebook boots fine and shows CPU, RAM and
    Bios Revsion: 1.00.09
    KBC/EC Revision: 1.00.02

    Then notebook hangs at "Press F2 to enter Setup"...
    If i press F2, message "Entering SETUP" show up, and then nothing hapens.

    FN+B FN+F Win+B FN+ESC does not work. My bootable USB-Pen works with miniDOS, tried on another notebook.
    Can i do anything else?

    I found the BIOS-Chip on mainboard, its a SST 49LF040B. My friend also has a programmer for SST-Flash-Devices. Can i flash WPH-Files directly or need i BIN-Files?

    Edit:
    I just did found a solution to convert WPH to BIN:

    Edit2:
    No need to flash BIOS externaly. I had just to disconnect CMOS Battery for a few minutes, now it works. CMOS battery is on the top-side, not bottom-side. Remove all screws at the bottom, remove HDD, DVD. Then you can lift case a little bit an will see the battery.
