Dell recommended updating the BIOS on this notebook in order to run Windows 2000. I downloaded the bios upgrade per their instructions, and proceded to flash the BIOS. The Dell utility checked the compatibility, erased the existing BIOS, and proceded to reprogram. However, the system hung at 0%, and after powering off, the notebook would not even power up. Dell told me the BIOS was not replaceable, and that I needed a new motherboard. This, however, is not true - the BIOS chip is removable.

Anyone know where I can get a new BIOS chip flashed with the latest BIOS, or where I can get this chip reprogrammed?
