How to Download and Use HP DMI Tool to Fix Product Information Errors

If you have an HP laptop or desktop computer, you may encounter a problem where the product information programmed into the system board is missing or invalid. This can cause errors such as "Product Information Not Valid" or "System Board (00A)" when you boot up your device. To fix this issue, you need to download and use HP DMI Tool, a utility that allows you to update the product information in the EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory).

In this article, we will show you how to download and use HP DMI Tool to fix product information errors on your HP device. Follow these steps carefully and make sure you have a backup of your data before proceeding.

HP DMI Tool is not available on the official HP website, but you can find it on some online forums or third-party websites. However, be careful when downloading files from unknown sources, as they may contain malware or viruses.
