Hello, I have a BIG problem, and am hoping I didn't brick my motherboard.
I have a Dell Alienware 15 laptop running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit Prod ID 8RY7Q32
My PC was running SLOOOWW... so I started looking for any updates via Dell's website.
It strongly recommended I update the BIOS .. so stupid me does.
now it fails to start, and asked if I want to run startup repair. I click yes.. and then I get get a failure notice telling me that the BIOS is not ACPI compatible and I need to install an updated BIOS.
I can get into the BIOS screen at start-up, but no way to roll back what I have done.
This is beyond any repairs I have done in a long time.
