Windows 7: Black screen after update bios

As a general rule at least with me, I read the release notes on the new bios.and unless I'm experiencing a problem and the new bios addresses that problem then I don't recommend flashing your bios just to have the latest version especially if you haven't flashed a bios before. As we can see now with this bios flash it obviously didn't flash correctly. I would contact Toshiba and see if you can send it in to have the chip replaced, also request the latest bios version if possible. Other than that maybe it would cost less to have them send you a preflashed chip and have a local shop replace it for you. Only way out I'm afraid. Of course all of this deoends on what smartyeyeball stated if it is removable or not. Fabe

Just out of curiosity, if the laptop is not even POSTing:

ie not even making it to the BIOS, let alone Windows (presuming the OP used a Win based .exe to flash) how do you propose he 're-installs it'?

Worth a long shot, but if the Boot Block Sector is corrupt, re-setting the CMOS unfortunately will do nothing.
