Help! I flashed my N500 with the G530 (MT 4446 only) BIOS update!! Now blue screen!!

Hi all,

 

Feeling very stupid as I have more than a few years of experience in IT and, while trying to fix a client's N500 machine, I downloaded the wrong drivers (cannot find the network drivers for the N500 at all online which was the problem) for the G530 (MT 4446 only) and proceeded to flash the N500's BIOS with the wrong update. Now I'm getting blue screen and I cannot find if the laptop is in warranty as the site won't accept my serial number as valid!! Please help!!
