Helping friend with upgrade of his vaio from Win2000 to WinXP Pro.
Thoughtfully checked Sony site and downloaded their BIOS for XP.
Auto flashed, got about 80% and then kerpow! Power crash. Can get no further than logo screen at power on. No POST and no access to Setup (F2).
Some limited read activity on floppy, but it won't boot from floppy or CD.
Assuming I have blown the BIOS, is there anything I can do? Am not too nervous about going into guts of Vaio, but preferably with plan of action.
