  1. Hey , guys. I recently did a BIOS update on a Toshiba Tecra 8100 Laptop running Windows 2000. After the update, while the system appeared to be working normally (LEDs on, a little HD acivity but no windows boot), the screen won't show up. I tried connecting the laptop to an external monitor, but nothing happened. Is there anything I can do?

    (Update) I am able to get to the bios upgrade screen by holding down F12 before pressing the power button. Is there any other way to upgrade the BIOS besides using a floppy drive?
