Your Mainboard is deceased. !!!
What you should do ?

2 solutions :

- Change the EPROM manually ... but give up, on a Notebook, it's a kind of magic ...

- Buy a new Motherboard ... :roll:

Try to unplug the AC adapter and the battery and press the power button for 10 seconds. Then try again.

But unfortunately I think you have no chance to fix this.

For a new mainborad, contact FSC

PS: If you still have warranty and it was a "necessary" flash, then you might get a new motherboard for free. But you must turn in the notebook.

Maybe you can get a new BIOS chip, that would be affordable...

Did you try to find a shop which sells BIOS chips for notebooks?

If you have already tried the steps mentioned above, try to use your notebook with an external screen. If this one is blank, too, you probably have to buy a new mainboard (or new BIOS Chip).
