Trouble with my Sony VAIO PCG-GRX520 laptop - will not start after I updated the bios
Posted on 2006-05-10
I recently did a fresh install on my VAIO PCG-GRX520 laptop using XP Pro. After the installation, I ran updates and then installed the drivers I picked up off the sony website. One of the updates was for the BIOS. The funny thing is, I remember my laptop working after I rebooted. Later I try and turn it on, all I get is the power light. It doesn't even run off the battery.
Is there a way to Flash the Bios? I was reading that I might need to swapped the BIOS chip itself. What would be the troubleshooting steps to determine it is the BIOS. I figure if the BIOS doesn't boot up, then it has to be that.
