Keep an eye on the Caps Lock and Num Lock LED.

I am saying that you do not need to update a BIOS to correct a BIOS corruption. You can correct a corruption with a RESET or ClearCMOS.

Also, a hardware failure can be the cause of the error (flashing LED). It does not need to mean a BIOS corruption only.

I did say if it's not corruption its hardware failure.. The BIOS update could have a fix related to the problem, thats why a reset wouldn't fix it but updating would.

Hardware failure re-seat your HDD. Re-seat just means unplugging and replugging, if you don't know how to re-seat those you can watch these.

What happens if you don't let the battery run all the way down? Any problems then?

Why do you need to run the battery all the way down? (I am assuming this is what you mean by "I let the battery die")

no problems if the battery dosnt run all of the way down. If I plugit back in while there is battery life, all is well. Well, sort of, its been running painfully slow latley too.
