First I would like to say hi to everyone on this board. Your forum seems to be filled with highly knowledgeable and helpful people :)


*Note the laptop worked 110% perfectly before the flash, and showed no signs of premature failure.

Just last friday I picked up a Gateway SOLO 9150 notebook computer from a yard sell. It was perfect for running slackware and doing a little war driving (non-threating). Anyway, I wanted to put in a somewhat larger harddrive, so I flashed the bios first (previous version 12.01) to 12.03. The Flash software seemed to complete sucessfully and rebooted on it's own. When it rebooted, the laptop doesn't have any video output! I've tried LCD, external CRT, and RCA composite video outputs. NOTHING seems to work, there is disk activity and no indications of a bad flash except for the lack of video output.

If anyone could please help me solve this conumdrum it would be greatly apreciated!.
