    You should have had it connected to mains power to flash the bios. :eek: If you ever install anything again plug it in first it will save a lot of headaches

    My HP N5495 laptop won't allow you to upgrade the BIOS unless it detects that the AC power plug is connected and that the laptop isn't running solely on the battery, even if it's fully charged.

    Didn't you bother to check the status of the battery before you started?
