Sony PCG K14 doesn't work after bios update

I have a dead laptop. A Sony PCG K14. After updating the bios (PH-A04X10802CL04US), the system power comes on, the dvd resets, but nothing else. I've read many of the posts on this web page, even tried the crisis recovery disk and the LPT key. No difference. Unit doesn't even TRY to access the floppy. I'm wondering if anyone has any other ideas or methods of restoring even the original bios.

Flashed Bios, now I can't boot

I have a MSI 865 PE Neo-2 series motherboard. I was having trouble with my controller card, and I somehow "stupidly" ended up flashing my bios. Now, I can't boot up my computer.

This is the email I sent to MSI Customer Service, I'm awaiting a response from them:

I accidentally flashed my bios. After that, I restarted my computer, but nothing happened. My computer wouldn't boot. I couldn't even get to the Bios screen. ...

Dead BIOS - Acer S82MA Motherboard/Winbond W49V002FAP Chip

OK, I was informed by a 'reliable' source that the S82MA was the same as an AOpen MX4B, so I flashed the BIOS of the MX4B onto the S82MA. As you may have already guessed, this was not a good idea. Boot-block mode is not automatically started, so the checksum must be correct. I have no video, no hard drive activity and only the DVD drive's light flickers; and my computer lacks an internal speaker. ...

Need help with possible BIOS/SpeedStep problem

I have a Compaq Presario 2500 that originally came with a desktop Celeron 2.0 GHz. I wanted to upgrade the processor and lower power consumption at the same time. The Celeron consumed a straight 60 watts and wasn't a SpeedStep processor, so it ran at 2.0 GHz all the time.

Since the Presario 2500 could originally come with a Mobile P4 (Northwood core), I assumed I could use a P4-M processor instead (Northwood core) because ...
