T43: HELP bios update failed.

2009-04-28, 20:14 PM

Just updated the Bios on a T43 and then updated the embedded system controller. The update for the bios went fine. The embedded system controller just hung up. It has been saying updating for about 20 minutes now.  No buttons work. I can't turn off the machine. What now????

This happened to me to.  It says "Do not turn off the computer...", so I haven't turned it off.  Is there a way out?
