Ok, I guess sooner or later my time would have come as well. So here is the problem:
I don't know why, but I decided to upgrade my BIOS on my G55 from 209 to 217. I am using Windows 8, and I used WinFlash to update the BIOS. The procedure was straight forward and no hiccups there!
After the BIOS flash, the flash tool prompted for a shutdown, I shut my laptop down and pressed the power button again and it booted normally into windows. Now what I did next pretty much fu**ed things up!
I restarted the laptop to enter the BIOS settings screen, because I wanted to see whats changed. I looked through the tabs and all, I did NOT change any settings in the BIOS menus, but anyway I pressed SAVE and EXIT on the exit screen.
After that it rebooted, but nothing happened. The screen wasn't lid up, it didn't even glow in black color. It didn't even have power.
After that I pressed and held the power button so I shut the laptop down completely, and then pressed the power button again to try and boot again, hoping it will work, but it didn't.
The only thing that happened was:
1. I press the power button
2. The laptop lights up the keyboard, and starts spinning the HDD like it is preparing to boot
3. The keyboard light stops, HDD keeps spinning and screen is off
That's what happens everytime, and I cannot even boot into the BIOS menu...
Please give some suggestions! I am far away from home and that is the only computer I have at my disposal right now. It is pretty damn important that I fix it ASAP. Thank you in advance!
