    I've got a Compaq Presario V5305WM Laptop that recently locked up during a BIOS Flash. It got to block 9 and the entire system locked up. Currently, the only thing that happens when you apply power to it is the fan cuts on. I do believe I saw the power LED flash once, but it seems very unresponsive.

    I'm pretty sure the thing is bricked and I'm either going to need to pick up a new laptop or, at the least, a motherboard for the thing, but do any of you know if it's compatible with crisis compatibility disks? If so, is it a catch 22 as in you can't use anything but a USB on the thing which isn't compatible with CRD, or am I just up the creek?

    Thanks in advance,
