Now it will not start, during the bios flash everything on the laptop suddenly went dead. It will not respond to the on botton, I know the power is getting through, cause the led on the dock lights up and it gets its power from the laptops ac power that is plugged only to the laptop.

Is it done, no responce at all, not even the fan tries to do anything.
