Question about Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422 Notebook
Even if the bios was messed up during installation, I'm sure that hitting the power button would at least draw electricity too it. Now it may not load anything, and could just show you a blank screen, but the darn thing would still run.

This may be an unrecoverable issue. The bios are very touchy, it's the built in programming that allows the computer to work, never do a bios update directly from the internet, download, save, then run. If the loss of power corrupted the bios, in most cases they cannot be recovered, and since the bios is what tells the machine to power and run, cannot be reloaded. You will probably need to replace the motherboard. Take it to a tech (Bestbuy as a last resort), tell them what happened and see if he/she can recover it. Techs have diagnostic discs for this, however and again, if it won't power due to corrupt bios, the disc won't do any good and they'll probably tell you the same, motherboard replacement. I hope I'm wrong on this and it's just something simple.
