I'm working on my little cousin's laptop, and the thing won't boot. I get a beep code of 2 short beeps. It's a BIOS failure. My first guess was to flash the BIOS but how am I supposed to flash the BIOS when I can't even boot? Any help here would be welcomed and greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
