Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422 Notebook ?

I need to perform a BIOS crisis recovery

\015 Has anyone done this on an A215-S7422? To preface this question, I will provide some history. I bought new ram and installed it, but the computer would not boot. I turned the computer off and reinstalled the old memory; it worked perfect. Once the computer had loaded, I did some digging to find out why the memory I bought would not work, and I found two possible solutions: bad memory modules, or I need a bios update. Since returning the memory would take a long time to do, I figured I would try to update my bios. I got the latest version from Toshiba's support site (v1.9 i think) and installed it from Windows (which I now know is the worst idea EVER). I followed every last detail in the instructions, and right before it was finished, my computer completely powered down - no lights, no noises, nothing.I get some lights up front when I provide power to the computer (either AC or DC) and the installed drives do the following:the hard drive spins, but not fast at alla USB flash drive led light flashesthe dvd drive spins for about 10 secondsAs far as I can tell, I don't hear any other noises. I've disassembled the entire laptop to check for any obvious damage and I can't see anything. I am 100% confident that I need to perform a bios crisis recovery. I have found various instructions, but I am wondering if anyone here has done it on this particular model in order to do it correct. If you have done it or know how to for this specific model (or any A215 for that matter) please let me know. Any help is greatly appreciated.Thank you in advance!\015
