I would not jump to the conclusion that the BIOS needs to be flashed just yet. At exactly what point does the computer stop booting? Can you see any screens, or logos at all? Does it reach a certain point and then freeze, or reboot, or what happens? Do you hear any beeps from the computer at all? Did you recently make any hardware or software upgrades? Please try to be very specific.

Yea, if you have made no hardware changes recently I would be very reluctant to touch the BIOS. If anything it sounds like an OS issue. Please respond to all of Jorosoft's questions before proceeding.
