Okay, so i'm an idiot. I was upgrading an e4310. Apparently I had not (as is my habit) named the computer with the svc tag. The svc tag (computername) was for an e6410 so I downloaded and flashed the e4310 (that had a14 bios) with the e6410 a16 bios. Computer is now dead. I did not stick around but after launch of a16 file, the system shut down and looked like it was doing the flash as I have seen a hundred times. I now get no POST. With battery out and charger only, the power button flashes on for about 5sec>off 500ms>5sec continuoulsly with wifi light solid. Other than that, nothing. I pulled the cmos batt, pressed and held the power button for 20sec and re-tried. NADA. Is there any way to force bios to a previous version. No problem breaking down laptop to the bones and I do have a soldering iron. I have come close to this before but the "wrong" bios update caught my mistake by looking at the system before. Any help greatly appreciated. I sincerely hope I haven't bricked this machine.
