Question about PC Laptops
After trying to flash a elite group 600 l .laptop..message popped up saying to reboot. I clicked Ok..but computer did not restart. I removed the battery forcing a shut down and the computer now refuse to boot up.
and secondly...is it possible to discharge the Cmos battery to wipe out the corrupted bios
how do I get back functionality on this laptop?
This is another possibility, the socket where the adapter lead plugs into your computer, from the mains! this could be faulty dry jointed. Just thought it might be of help, Because the problem you had I had and this was the culprit!

If the BIOS udpate failed you're in trouble. Removing the CMOS battery will only clear the settings, not the corrupted BIOS code.
I think the only solution to this is to replace the BIOS chip or pull it out of the board and have it reprogrammed. Neither one will be cheap or easy.
I hope I'm wrong and somebody can give you better news.
