I have a Compaq Presario 1246 laptop which died after virus attack. It has Boot Block Recovery and i found the two soldering pads on the motherboard for activate it, but don't know what file is the system looking for, or what key should i press. Without shorting the Boot Block Recovery pads, the system doesn't beep or display anything, when i short them, beeps once and is trying to read the diskette. I have the correct BIOS dump from the Compaq BIOS upgrade diskette, i inserted that but no luck. I revived few motherboards, but back then i knew how to name the file or what to press. Compaq doesn't give any decent answer, i have a very bad oppinion about their support.
Any ideas?

Best regards,
