I tried updating the BIOS of my Sony Vaio CS-17G notebook to the latest updates given at the Sony Support Website.

Everything went fine, got message 'BIOS updated successfully', 'Press OK to shut down.'

Pressed ok & now nothing's okay. The system is not booting up! :thumbsup:

Tried the following troubleshooting, but no luck;
1) Pressing F2 & F8 keys.
2) Disconnected the AC Adapter, removed the battery & pressed the power button for 60secs.

Pls assist.

what do you get when you turn it on?
what constituted the update?

Usually due to SATA drivers for your hard drive controller.
you may need to upgrade them some how or flash your bios back down to upgrade the drivers then reflash the update.

I guess that I'd like to know why you felt that you wanted to update the BIOS...what was wrong that prompted this?

After you updated...did you reset the system time/date in the BIOS...and save the changes?
