you should be able to get into your BIOS when the laptop starts?

the problem is the BIOS.

I am able to access the BIOS but then it hangs there whenever I try to save the settings.

maybe you should reset everything instead of making changes and then save it.

I tried to reset to default setting in the bios
when i try to exit from the bios
it hangs

and i tried to access the bios on next reboot.
found out nothing was changed.

this is one shitty problem with super portable laptop. everything else is modular.

maybe try booting off Windows cd. eg. XP, and format everything.

Why was the bios needed to be flashed in the first place? Based on the information you've written it sounds like your problem is the bios itself during the flashing process.

Either that or something's up with the mainboard. But definitely hardware specific.
