I have Asus t101mt netbook/tablet and I used Asus's bios updater and reboot. Now I just get a black screen. No post what so ever.
(It flashes twice with a blinking text line though) Ive tried hitting every function key. Nothing does anything, please help! Im at a complete loss. Whats worse is, I just bought it 3 days ago =(

If it were me and the laptop was only three days old, I would return it to the place of purchase as defective and get another one.

I really dont think Amazon is gonna take it back. They are gonna say I screwed it up, which technically I did. Even though it is Asus's software's fault.(every bit of their software sucks. I should have known better than to update my bios with their software) So Asus is probably gonna end up fixing it. Will they let me take it to best buy or something to get it fixed? I really dont wanna go 2 weeks without it. Im gonna call them shortly, I just want to get as much info as possible from people who may have gone through this before. Thanks for yall's help

Yeah I probably could do that, but I dont wanna open it & kill my warranty. I could probably get a new chip free if I called who-ever makes my motherboard (I havent looked) But I would rather let Asus do it so one way or the other I would hav it fixed, If I tried & failed for watever reason I would have to pay atleast 150$ to get it fixed lol

Thanks for your help though.
