I was updating a friend's BIOS a few hours ago. The process was at the stage of deleting the BIOS when we experienced a utility power outage. The machine went off almost simultaneously with the electricity.

Now it powers on, but all I see is the power LED indicating that its on ... nothing more (no visuals). How do I recover from this?
