Dell mini 910 BIOS problems

Hi all,

I downloaded the software utility mentioned on the my dell mini site which allows for the changing of BIOS versions.
I was trying to rectify the fact that the battery no longer charges and thought it may be a BIOS issue.
Anyway, the BIOS flash failed and I have purchased a USB floppy drive to attempt recovery via the software.
At the point where I press the power button (with the FN and B keys held in), the netbook beeps once and the floppy drive reads the disk.
Then thats it, no more beeps, no more floppy drive activity.

Can anyone help or have I bricked my machine?

HAve you tried disconnecting mains lead battery and CMOS battery to see if BIOS will reset?

You could try PLop Boot Manager from floppy.

There are a fair few refs on the web.

Good luck.
