Updating bios with a dead battery on a TP i Series 1721 2627-721?

Is there a way to flash the BIOS with a dead main battery on a TP 1721 2627-721?

Do you need the newer BIOS that bad that you'd risk bricking the laptop?

I would like to try. The motherboard may need replacing anyway. I've been having problems geeting it to boot which I desribed in another post a few days ago.
