I was doing a fresh install on a Gateway M500B1 laptop and the last thing I was updating was the BIOS and the screen froze. I left it, but eventually I turned it off and now it won't boot. The OS was XP Home. I'm not hearing any beeps and I tried to take out the RAM and still no sound. Is the MOBO shot? I haven't done anything with CMOS honestly because my knowledge of this stuff is very surface. I also tried using bootable discs, but nothing goes on the display. Can I boot the BIOS from a USB? I don't think that'll work with XP, but I need some help. I'm completely lost and bummed out.
