Specs: Windows 7
F10 does nothing also escape does nothing I just get an orange screen. I was wondering if there is any hope of flashing the bios from boot. or any other startup commands besides F10 or escape? Do I have a boat anchor??

How about some history. First of all is the unit under warranty? The Orange colored screen may indicate a defective graphic chip. When you say you get nothing does that mean you do not see anything on the display at any time other than an Orange color?

Why would you think flashing the BIOS would help?

Flashing the BIOS is very rarely necessary and can wreck your motherboard if it goes wrong. If you suddenly get a fault it is not a BIOS update issue.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
