    Somewhere on earth ...
    I hope I'm in the correct section ...
    I have Pavilion DV2550ee and the wireless card just went dead. I get an extra wireless card and want to use that
    on my DV2550. I had searched on bios mod forum and found a modded bios file for my notebook that is SP41959.exe. I tried it and it works BUT the wireless is not initiated/started on boot up. I have to toggle the hard switch to start the wirless (it is ON/OFF switch, not the Fn + F5 button combination).

    I'm seeking for a helps to mod the bios file by myself. I know I have to hex edit the MOD_5100.ROM part but I don't have the knowledge.
    Here's the detail of the wireless card ;

    STOCK/original -
    Intel Pro wireless 3945 ABG Device ID :
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_4222&SUBSYS_135B103C&REV_02

    PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_002A&CC_028000
