    I tried an update using what is most likely the wrong bios (since the name started with 3 and the latest ones starts with 5), from Windows, not a boot disk/floppy, and the laptop has now a sad black screen. Some guys tried to fix it at a local computer repair shop using another Windows bios updates but also failed so far. If anyone has any idea how this can be fixed, preferably without a blind flash please help, because this is not even my laptop, and I'm in big trouble. All I could find on the Internet find is Windows installer bios updates by the way.
