I have a Toshiba Satellite A355-S6940, running Windows 7 Professional.
Earlier I was on the Toshiba downloads page downloading drivers - one of them was a BIOS update which promptly froze my computer. I had to take the battery and power cord out in order to shut it down and upon trying to turn it back on I find it won't move past the black screen - no hitting of F2, F12, etc. will make this happen. It seems to be a BIOS problem, but is there any way to fix it without taking it to a repair specialist?
