    OK, so i screwed up....Bad Bios Mod

    I have an HP 530 and was trying to upgrade the BIOS to SLIC2.1. I now have a brick, and have no idea what to do from here. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Is it pretty much trash right now?

    And to be a little more clear, the laptop wont boot up at all. Power light comes on, but that is all.
