M93p locked up while flashing

Have a M93p that just froze during flashing (keyboard and mouse froze during the Windows part of the flashing (prepping I guess)), after it was sitting for like 15 minutes I then went ahead and power off the unit.

 

When power cable is plugged in now the fan(s) starts and you see the optical drive blink a few times, but the power LEDs does not lit or blink at all and the screen is black and the system will not boot at all (no POST). Have tested the recovery jumper and removed the battery to no avail (the latest Flash CD-ROM was in the drive).

 

Any suggestions?

 

TIA!

Are you certain the CD is bootable?  With it in a different PC, does it boot to a DOS prompt?

CD-R tested in another PC, boots fine so I guess changing/swapping the optical drive is one more thing to test.
