I've got laptop without dual bios with Bios erased by unknown virus. Is there any (recommended easy) way to revive my laptop ?

It'd help if you specified your model and explain the problem you're seeing. –  Daniel Beck Jan 2 '11 at 16:57
There are usually ways to restore BIOS on new laptops, but they are very closely related to the model of the laptop. –  AndrejaKo Jan 2 '11 at 17:04
A virus erased your bios? thats a new one. –  Moab Jan 2 '11 at 18:40
@Moab I agree, how can you know for sure that A) Your BIOS was erased and B) A virus did it? You're going to have to give us a little bit more information than this... –  BloodPhilia Jan 2 '11 at 18:51
I have never heard of a virus erasing a bios, not in 15 years of working on them, I have seen some write to the MBR and wreak havoc. –  Moab Jan 2 '11 at 19:32
