I could use some help in solving a boot problem with my laptop. The laptop is 2 years old and was working but a little slow lately. Yesterday when I went to use it it seemed to power up fan hard drive dvd all ran but no video display not even post. I plugged another monitor in but still no display. I believe it to be either a hardware problem with the onboard video card or a virus/problem with the bios. So how can I flash the bios on a laptop without a removable chip?
System specs Gateway 6436 laptop
Processor sempron 3500+
Motherboard R5482m AMD part number 105780
Additional info The lights all come on during the attempted boot. A control R gives a beep with each key stroke. Then all keys will make tone when pushed ( only letter keys) not number or f keys. None of the f keys have any effect. Tried totally powering down system. And removed all periferials no change
