Did I kill Lenovo G550 using CmosPwd?

Hi,

I've been trying to sort a neighbour's laptop on which someone put both BIOS and HDD passwords. I used CmosPwd on it tonight without realising that it is not suitable for laptops, and now the laptop is completely dead - pressing the power button does absolutely nothing. Is this possible? I don't have the power lead for it until tomorrow so I'm hoping it's just run out of juice, but I fear not. If I have killed it, is there any way of rectifying it?

Cheers.

Not if you corrupt the bios with the CmosPwd.
But, like you said it might be just run out of battery.
