Hi Guys,

Dell 1558 Studio (Integrated graphics - board DA0FM9MB8D1 REV:D PWB A:00) came in with no power on.

We heated up HM55 and it worked, so we decided to chang HM55 chipset.

After HM55 replacement, board refuse to power on.

So we took BIOS dump and using the guide on this website, we produced a clear ME bios from the dump.

After flashing this clear ME, the board powers on after 10 secs and displays message "ME firmware update failed, please try again".

Can somebody help? Probably, i dont have the correct BIOS?

I have attached original BIOS dump here.
