I got this laptop from a friend for free to keep and fix if I want it. It was workin fine for awhile, NOW it won't boot past the BIOS flash. Which means I can't even reformat or safe mode or anything. Any ideas?
Well, if it's worth saving(And I mean REALLY worth it), you Might be able to buy a new BIOS chip from Toshiba. However, this is a rather extreme measure, and it might not even work (e.g: if the chip is soldered on the motherboard) (Actually, it's probably not the BIOS, have you added any new hardware?)
