Well that's the problem - a failed BIOS update essentially bricks your laptop. The ONLY way around the problem is to BUY a new preprogrammed BIOS chip and replace your existing chip. Lots of college library's have laptops that they can loan out.


Sorry for the bad news.

The BIOS chip is probably soldered onto the laptop motherboard. So you might need to replace the motherboard.

I suggest you pay a qualified repair shop to diagnose the problem for you. You might find it's cheaper to replace the laptop than to fix it.

Good Luck
