	Another approach is to use an external SPI programmer:
	http://flashrom.org/Supported_programmers
	The 'downside' of this is that you need to take your laptop apart.

	ODM schematics of your laptop are found here:
	http://notebookschematic.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/6515b_6715s.png
	Downloads for BIOS updates:
	http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3356623&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=3368539&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1093#120
	and ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp55501-56000/sp55556.exe

	My guess (I am not a HP service technician) is that you need
	ROM.CAB/Rom.bin from sp55556.exe - you can use 7zip to extract Rom.bin

This is probably way beyond my skills,
but thanks anyway.
