After updating bios no display
However this doesn’t mean you will need to replace your motherboard, a lot of newer systems have special BIOS recovery procedures that can be done.
You will need to consult your motherboard manual or motherboards manufacturers’ site to get these steps.

- Power and battery lights turn on (they work ok, if I remove the battery, the light shows that, etc.) - Hard disk light comes on for about 1 second, then off forever. Caps lock and num lock always on is what really strikes me. A couple of times in the past, I had to force a shutdown on the laptop so I would press the ON/OFF button for 4 or 5 seconds..
A potential solution is a “less but more” approach with multi-function tools and devices.
Either you didn’t listen to this warning, something interrupted the update or you used the wrong BIOS update leaving you with a corrupted BIOS.
If your BIOS is now corrupt you will be unable to reboot and try the BIOS flash again, not easily anyway.
If the motherboard is an older one the only way you can recover the motherboard is to get the BIOS ROM reflashed using a ROM Burner/Programmer which some Computer Stores may have (you may need to call around) or you can buy your own.
In newer systems the flash ROM is soldered to the motherboard and cannot be replaced.
