    Can't get the laptop to boot from any device internal or external it hangs so it does not allow me to flash it.

    Just check the mod bios using the phoenix bios editor tool and the boot fail recovery seems to be disable

    Don't know what else t do at this time

    No luck

    I have remove the hard drive and nothing,

    I even took apart the laptop and remove the Bios battery and same result, since this is not my notebook I had to order I new mobo and will have to replce it

    Sucks big time but I guess that's the risk in testing

    Reset Bios

    Did you short across where the "CMOS" Battery was monted on the motherboard? Just removing it will not reset CMOS.
    Note: Be sure to remove "CMOS" Battery as shorting it out will kill it!

    PM me if you have any qustions on this as I've had to do this a few times.

    Have you checked if there is a removable BIOS chip? All you may need is to replace that. Though, I doubt any newer laptops have those.

    Try to vizit official site of notebook's producer and to download the lastest version of BIOS to your model of laptop. I hope advices would help in your problem.
