About a couple of days ago I tried to turn on my XPS which I had use just an hour before but it wouldn't turn on. I noticed that the LED in the from was bilking and repeating a certain pattern (3 Amber and 5 White). went on Dell.com and found a table showing different combinations of Amber and White lights. Mine was listed as error message "SMBIOS FLASH CORRUPTION" no solution was recommended just to see a technician! I don't have any receiver, for a mouse or anything else, plugged in. I took the computer to the store (Microsoft) where I bought it from. They tried to flash the BIOS and connected the laptop to another monitor but they couldnot see anything on the other monitor and told me they cannot do anything else since the screen does not turn on. Any help will be appreciated.

Same thing happened to me last week-end, I used it Friday night, lock the screen. Monday morning I needed to print something and it never turned back on, I get the 3 amber, 5 white flash combination all the time but haven't found anything regarding the SMBIOS part. Looks like nothing is happening, I removed the battery, tried on power only, same behavior.
