    Didn't see anything on the SL410, so here is my problem I need help with.

    Back story: Woke up this morning to find my laptop claiming my battery is expired (~2 years old). It won't charge or work. I tried a battery reset with now luck. I then tried updating my BIOS, but lost power to the computer during the update.

    Now when turning the computer on, I have a power light and I can hear/see the fan and HD running (but not making a read/write noise). The screen stays black and doesn't do anything. I've tried putting in the BIOS update disk, but I can't get to a point to boot from it.

    Is it possible to recover from this bad bios flash? I've been told I have a Pheonix MB. A detailed step by step would really help.

    (sorry if the answer is posted somewhere else).
