    Laptop turned off during flashing (under Windows :(
    And It shows no signs of life anymore :(
    Ctrl-Home, Ctrl-PgUp,.. not working. Perhaps Boot Block corrupted :( Or...
    Are there another "magic keys"?

    ANY help appreciated! Please!

    In the search box at the top right I put "asus bios recovery"
    I got at least 10 pages of threads of people describing the same problem you're having.

    You've got lots of reading to do.

    I saw but didn't find a solution.
    Removing batteries didn't help (main + onboard)
    So... The only way is SPI programmer right?

    The only posts related to the ASUS D550CA
    are yours, but it can't be an orphan
    it has to be part of a family of Asus computers which have a common technique
    for recovering bioses.
    So your first step is to find out what computers are similar to it
    and if there have been any successful recoveries

    PS, I went looking

    What were you doing here:http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...ios-mod-requests/page4926?p=859833#post859833

    This is a current (2013) computer, it should not need an upgrade

    have you visited this page: http://support.asus.com/knowledge.aspx?SLanguage=en&p=3&s=561&m=D550CA&os=&hashedid=n/a
    and this page:
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/asu...books-read-before-you-brick-your-machine.html

    Your ultimate solution would be to take it back to the supplier lay it on the counter like Monty Python's parrot, and say it this computer is dead, fix it.
    play stupid, like Tonto.
