Tell them to fix it maybe.
I think there is a way to re-flash it even if the bios is borked. Seems to me you can boot to a flash install mode. Be sure you have monitor on the built in video adapter if installed.
As a side note to others trying this. ONLY flash the bios when you actually have issues.
"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
