I have an Inspiron 1100 laptop that I was attempting to update the BIOS by using a bootable bios flash CD. The installation seemed to be going normally, but once I hit "Y" to confirm the bios update, the machine showed a transfer bar, the screen went off, and a solid Amber light lit up.
I have removed the battery and all drives. The system will not boot. It only continues to display the solid Amber light. No post codes either. Its just a paperweight with a permanently lit LED. Any suggestions?
