Did the BIOS update finished correctly?
Sorry, but I think that you will have to send it to the Warranty Service for a BIOS flash restore.

I have no idea if it installed correctly.. It booted up once... and i saw very bright screen with everything in gredient..pixeled blocks.. I also heard hard disc voice... which i never heard before.. when i restarted second time... lights were on but screen was black..... i tried to turn off but it didnt turned off.. i just removed battery and power supply.. when i put the battery back and power supply.. no lights.. start button does nothing.. and battery light does not turn on.. its like dead laptop...
any suggestions? I think bios messed up everything..

If it really is bricked, then service may be the right option.
When you downloaded the BIOS, did you cold boot the system (shut down and then restart) before you flashed it?
We have seen some issues with systems that have been suspended and resumed on the same power on cycle before the bios flash was applied, that have led to this condition.
Newer versions of the bios have protection against this, but only for future updates (have to get the first one done)
Appreciate anything else you can share about what steps you took (no blame here, but I want to ensure we've got a handle on this completely).

I did not boot the system before flashing it... after i flashed. screen was very bright.. booted 2 times by itself.. i already told you steps I took in previous posts..
Mark do u think it is a flashing issue? or u think it have faulty motherboard?

I don't know if this is related at all but...
When I bought my computer and I booted it all I got was a black screen.
What I did was simply close then open my laptop and it fixed.
Once again sorry if this doesn't help but its worth trying for a simple solution.
