What would you do if your machine has no floppy?  With a blown BIOS there 
wouldn't be USB either would there?  CD also isn't there without the BIOS so 
a floppyless machine would be completely dead wouldn't it?  Although 
successful with my update of BIOS on this laptop, I think I have just 
frieghten myself out of ever doing it again!!!!  Glad you are back up and 
running Mikael.
