Satellite L755, started bios upgrade, battery dead, so plugged it in, went to the kitchen, leaving the bios upgrade running. My dog apparently pulled the power cord apart while chasing a fly, I didn't notice, and the laptop shut down. Now nothing works, obviously.

Luckily, lots of backups, so I have all my data, but how do I restore the bios at this point?

Thanks.

You probably can't. Many motherboards need the BIOS chip (with a new correctly installed BIOS) replaced when a BIOS update fails.

Good Luck
