Try installing the BIOS again.

If you can't get it installed, the system is dead.

You used the correct BIOS flash file and method, yes? If not, set up a new flash disk on another computer and try again.

Firstly I think you'll find that the M'Board is now dead

But you can try sourcing a replacement BIOS Chip with the required BIOS Version on it. Unfortunately most NB's now have the BIOS chip soldered to the M'Board not in a Socket so when a BIOS Flash Fails that means the M'Board needs replacing.

In the past I've used BIOS Man for replacement IC's and found that they are very good so I would suggest you starting there for a replacement BIOS IC.

Sorry but there is nothing you can do if this is the case other than attempting to buy a BIOS IC from a place like I mentioned above and wait for the International Post to arrive. But even then because this is a NB I very much doubt that there is a replaceable BIOS IC.

{i]if M-board is died then we can't replace it coz in Somalia there is no such service .

Well if you need anything off the HDD you can remove that and fit it to something as a Slave Drive or USB External Drive and backup all of the Data provided that there was no encryption being used, or look on a place like E Bay for another M'Board.
