    The laptop will not POST, screen LED does not even turn on. Tried draining residual power and reseating components, nothing changed. Got it into Crisis Recovery mode to try to reflash the BIOS. I extracted the Dell BIOS EXE's and got the BIOS.CAP files for A01, A03, A08, A11-A17. I tried each of them on a FAT32 flash drive. A08 and higher give an Error 216 on screen (see h**p:// ), A01 and A03 stay at a black screen then reboot the computer where it will still not POST. Is there any hope to resurrect this laptop?
