11 is fine.

Put it back together and see if it will boot.

Dammit it didn't boot, but i notice that my fan will run faster after certain interfalls while its not even running that hot after the battery thing.
Are there any other things i can try, i don't have jumpers (or i can't find them) and i still have warrenty, but i don't think they will repair it although i used the correct bios flash thingy.

Are you able to connect an external monitor to it, may be worth trying just in case the problem is with the screen and not the Bios.

Im back, sorry that it took so long.
Uhm connecting to my tv didn't work and as far as i know the bios chip is intergrated in my mobo. But shouldn't removing the bios battery for some time reset it the bios to the fabric setting?
I think i send it back to compaq and explain school with a nice note from my parents that i couldn't do anything about it.

You don't need a note from mom to RMA your laptop.

If you were flashing your BIOS when it failed, it's certain that is causing your problem. The system will get power but the computer essentially doesn't know what it is. The BIOS contains all the information that tells it to be a computer. Without it, it's a lobotomized piece of hardware and must be RMA'd. If it's under warranty (as you mentioned) contact your warranty holder and get a RMA number, ship it in.

Problem solved.

that note wasnt for compaq it was for school so they won't kick my ass for all the failed projects i "was" making.
Lets hope the warranty hasn't expired yet.

you could pull the hard drive out of the laptop and put it into a external enclosure so you can get your files off of it on another computer. besides, you dont want to send the laptop in with your data on it anyway.
