help! after being told by my local pc shop to flash the bios, the laptop no longer powers up, is there a way to clear the settings, as i understand you can change the jumper settings on the motherboard, any help gratefully recieved.
Your best (& cheapest) bet would be to get a replacement BIOS chip from click here (or from any other site you can find) for just under £15. The one you need lies 4th in the 2nd column. Before buying, it would be best to make a few queries with them to be certain of getting the correct one. Provide all info about the laptop & markings/codes on the BIOS chip itself. You will need to dismantle the laptop & expose the motherboard to find out the BIOS chip info. All the best with it.
The other options are getting a replacement motherboard or laptop, both of which are going to be considerably more. G
