After updating the flash bios on an old Sony Vaio, I can no longer boot up (I got the message that the update was successful. I get the Sony screen (with the "Phoenix Technologies" logo in the corner), and it goes no further. I can't get into the bios, and it won't respond to the Windows CD disk for Windows reinstallation.
It's an old machine, and I have no diagnostic tools available. I assume I messed up the bios; are there any clever tricks to get access to it? Can a repair technician fix this? Is my only alternative sending it off to Sony repair for reimaging or "re-flashing" the bios?
Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks!
