The first thing to do is protect your thesis. You can do that by buy an external USB hard drive enclosure. You then remove the hard drive from the broken laptop and place it into the enclosure. You should then be able to access the drive from another computer. All late model laptop come with SATA drives so be sure to get the right kind of enclosure.

At this point my best guess is the laptop is beyond repair. But, you can get a local repair shop to do a diagnostic test to see if it's repairable.

You should always periodically email yourself a copy of the thesis to protect yourself from this type of problem.

Good Luck

Unless the manufacturer has supplied a workaround. When you fail to correctly flash the BIOS you have essentially ruined the computer. On a desktop you can remove the BIOS chip and replace it with a correctly programmed one. Most laptops have the chip soldered onto the motherboard. So you don't have this option.
