Flashing a BIOS with the incorrect BIOS file or improper version or any other error will often leave the computer inoperable.  I've even seen it blow screend and motherboards because the wrong BIOS version was installed and the thing self destructed on boot up!  If you flash a color noetbook say with a mono BIOS or vice versa, you can blow the screen electronics because the frequencies are whacked.

To repair will require a new BIOS chip installation. (I'd be surprised if it's recoverable in any way - seen too many  to have much hope...) Most noteboooks have their BIOS chips soldered so you cannot repair yourself.  You are in deep, deep ka-ka and need the mercy of an authorized repair depot to help you...

Did you have a problem with the computer prior to the upgrade?

Are there any directions for how to recover located where you got the new BIOS?

ruble...when you "flashed" the BIOS...it should have asked you where you would like to save the old BIOS...simply re-flash it and load the old BIOS...it should be on the same floppy disk [if you used one]...my $.02
This will at least get your computer back to where it was..hopefully. :-)

You said the computer has stoped functioning does that mean you can't even boot it with a floppy or just nothing works right

I live in the Caribbean, have to send this thing to Georgia (magitronic's head office) and get it back in one piece, is it worth it??
