Laptop overheated, bios update crashed now what?Locked
Ok, I have a toshiba laptop P105-S9337, basically a Intel core 2 duo T7200 2GHZ vista with 4 gigs of ram. I closed the lid of my laptop and put it into my backpack and I got to work and got busy so I didnt take it out for about an hour. Well I went to take it out and come to find out it failed to hibernate and was smoking hot and had a faint electricity burning smell!
I put it on the chill mat, plugged it in and it started up just fine a hour later. The only thing I noticed was 1) the keys being pressed didnt always regsiter and required multiple attempts occasionally to get them to register and 2) the battery wasn’t charging. I looked up support bulletins on Toshiba’s website and they had a update on their BIOS back in march for the indicator on the vista desktop not registering the battery charging. Also Ill add I plugged it in all day and left it off for about 6 hours and when I booted up before the bios update the battery was only at 55% when I think it should have been 100%, making me think I damaged my battery.
Well I downloaded the bios and was using the utility toshiba provided to do it through windows, it locked up, i retryed it and it locked up again, so I rebooted….
Now the lights come on, the cd rom drive spins, but I get no display. I made a bios update cd which is supposed to update the bios on boot up but it does nothing. Ive tried every key combination to get into a menu but nothing.
Also I noticed that my charger doesnt always register on the led its plugged in and on ac power, it flickers some times faintly, other times its normal, and sometimes it wonts register at all..
Is my motherboard fried or do I just have to find a way to update the bios, but then I have the keyboard issue that just popped up too? I took apart my laptop after all this to inspect it and nothing looked fried. Any help would be great, thanks Pat
