    How to flash the bios of Lenovo Thinkpad T42 ?

    How to flash the bios of Lenovo Thinkpad T42 and return home? The T42 does not boot any more, hdd, graphics card, cpu: OK. Before thinking that this is a problem motherboard, it would be the only solution to consider?

    What do you mean by "no longer boot", the computer will not boot? or does it not boot on the hard disk, CD ...?

    In fact the computer is unbootable. The LEDs light up, power, hdd. after he died!

    So the screen "Thinkpad". To get to the bios, you really insist on pressing the power button, but it is not always the bios. Otherwise, not possible to launch the system.

    However, the T42 has worked normally before. The whole problem started with the "fan error". The fan was controlled: OK, the hard disk: OK, CPU: OK and Graphic card: Ok well. Could it be corrupted bios or more serious motherboard failure?

    My config is: T42, 15" SXGA, 1.7 cpu, 1 GB ram, radeon 9600-64 mb. HDD 60 GB. Win Xp pro sp3. Bios v: 3.21.

    Is it risky to drain and flash the bios? and if it does nothing, can we consider that the motherboard is faulty!

    Thank you give me some ideas if possible. I purchased the T42 used but in perfect condition, cosmetics and configuration, it was in vista, which was replaced by XP Pro.
