bios upgrading issues

Hi,

Did you connect your machine to AC power when updating BIOS ? Please try a hard reset and see if it works.

1. Power off your laptop
2. Remove the a/c adapter, battery and everything that is attached to your laptop.
3. Hold the 'POWER 'button down on your laptop for about 10 seconds.
4. Plug in the a/c power supply (without battery) and power on.

 

Note: You need to use AC power when udating BIOS.

Regards.

BH
